Think of a Future Travel Voucher as your ticket to the world with EF Education First. Here are some more details about what it is and how you can use it.
Everything you put toward your EF Go Ahead Tour is included in the value of your voucher. This includes 100% of your deposit, insurance, flights, and customization options like excursions or the extension.
You’ll have a full year to decide how you’ll apply your Future Travel Voucher. It just needs to be used toward a new booking within one year, but you can travel with us anytime beyond that in 2021, 2022, or even 2023. Travelers with vouchers issued in 2020 have until December 31, 2021 to redeem them.
Future Travel Vouchers can be given or transferred to anyone you know, whether that's a family member, friend, neighbor, or coworker.
While we'd love to have you join us on an upcoming EF Go Ahead Tour, you can also redeem your Future Travel Voucher for another EF experience.
EF Education First was founded in 1965 and for more than half a century, we have weathered global political events, financial crises, and natural disasters. While the scale of the coronavirus is unique, the diversity of our organization with over 650 schools and offices operating in 50 countries across the globe provides stability in uncertain times, like the moment we are in now. We look forward to once again helping people live out their dreams of exploring the world on guided tours in 2021, 2022, and beyond.
