Terms & Conditions
We at eduVacations® work very hard
to provide an interactive cultural experience while satisfying
your needs and interests, and adhere to a philosophy of
cultural sensitivity and openness to international living
experiences. While we strive to make you feel at home on
your trip, we also value and respect the expectations, style
of service and customs of our country hosts, and expect
that you will also.
eduVacations® and affiliates do our best to fulfill
your program and accommodation requests, given your specific
requests provided on the reservation form — however,
we cannot guarantee a “perfect” match. An eduVacation® is
by nature a mind opening, real-world experience, not a stay
in predictable, standardized, Americanized accommodations,
and your company is generally a mix of many nationalities.
Your host family may not be perfect (perhaps a bit disorganized,
or maybe not gourmet cooks); your room in the hotel or residence
might not be as big as you are accustomed to, the bed might
be smaller, too. Some flexibility may be required on your
part as a traveler.
If Problems Do Arise while on your trip, please remember
that no problems can be considered or rectified unless reported
to the destination-site specialist and eduVacations® prior
to the conclusion of the course. It is your responsibility
to contact them and eduVacations® at once if there is
a problem; we will work with you to find a workable solution.
No retrospective claims against eduVacations® or the
destination-site specialist will be accepted unless eduVacations® and
the destination-site specialist are advised of a problem
during the time of the stay. Remember, we want you to enjoy
your trip, and most problems can be rectified while you’re
still on it, and fairly easily, given the proper notification.
Changes in the Itinerary or Accommodations- Due to circumstances
beyond our control, the destination-site specialist or eduVacations® may
have to make partial changes in your stated itinerary or
accommodation. Every effort is made to keep changes to a
minimum and to maintain prices and our standard of quality.
Please also be aware that the information on our website
is based on information available to us at the time of publication.
Due to significant currency fluctuations, prices may change.
You should know that the occurrence of changes are rare.
Changes, such as Lengthening or Shortening your Stay, are
often possible. However, changes in plans may be subject
to a $40 to $350 (complete destination change) change fee.
If you must reschedule your trip (without a destination
change), a $200 per person rescheduling fee applies.
Cancellation and Travel Insurance- eduVacations® understands
that occasionally you may have to cancel reservations. If
you must cancel plans prior to departure, a cancellation
fee, up to 100% of the total price may apply; it is dependent
on the affiliate's predicament and whether or not your space
can be filled. Over the years, rescheduling has been the
solution when a serious schedule conflict interferes with
taking the trip. No refunds are available after departure.
We highly recommend that you purchase the travel insurance
policy we provide.
Get ready for a great trip!
