Will Walking Tree book my flight?
Yes, we will arrange and pay for all group travel from a designated departure city to the destination country. These flights are chaperoned either by the Group Organizer/s or our program leaders. We provide a flight manifest – complete with reservation codes and ticket numbers – to the group organizer before departure. Once enrolled, we will provide a detailed information about program-specific travel day logistics.
Please remember that checked baggage fees are the responsibility of the traveler. We recommend you visit the airline’s baggage webpage to find out about baggage fees and options.
What documents do I need to travel?
To travel internationally, you must have a passport that is valid for at least six months after your program return date. In addition, you may need a visa depending on your nationality and the country or countries you are visiting. For countries requiring a visa from U.S. travelers, we will provide you with information necessary to help you apply for and obtain a visa upon enrollment in the program. Non-U.S. citizens must check local visa requirements, including requirements for countries passed through in transit. For U.S.-based programs, we recommend bringing a school I.D., driver’s license, or other form of identification.
Can I use frequent flier miles to purchase my ticket?
Unfortunately, the airlines do not permit using air miles for our pre-reserved international group flights. You MAY accrue miles on our international group flights by having your student apply the number at the time of check in.
