Travelling as a Unaccompanied Minor (UM) has it's challenges, we recommend calling the airline as soon as you enroll to make sure there are flights that will accommodate your schedule. You can also see general restrictions on each airline's website.
There are additional fees for travelling as a UM, up to $300 per ticket, please keep this in mind when selecting a course out of state.
One of our staff members will meet your child at the flight gate to escort them to the group. You'll need the name of that staff member who will collect and return your child to the gate. We generally can confirm the staff in April, until that time, please use a temporary name and adjust this when you have our details.
