What is a departure fee? Why is there a fee for $824 listed in the price? I’m sure you’re wondering why that’s on the summary and what a ‘departure fee’ actually is. So, what are departure fees? They are surcharges that are imposed by airlines and governmental agencies. They cover things like federal or foreign government-imposed landing fees, security fees, customs fees, baggage fees, and even airline-imposed fuel surcharges which fluctuate based on the cost of oil. We’ve seen these fees fluctuate as much as $200 in either direction. We reassess these costs as new information becomes available, and we update invoices accordingly. That way, you’ll always know exactly what we know. These fees are then finalized 30-50 days prior to departure.

The optional All-Inclusive Insurance Plan covers: • Tour cancellation and interruption • Medical and accident • Baggage and property • Flight delay • 24-hour access to an English-speaking representative For more information visit eftours.com/insurance or call EF’s Customer Service Department at 800-665-5364.

Students and parents sign a behavioral contract before departure, ensuring that they understand and agree to the expectations and repercussions.
