5 Ways to use your Global Rewards points

Apr 04, 2018 by Emily Houston

Whether it’s by being a longtime Group Coordinator with EF Go Ahead Tours, transitioning into leading Go Ahead Tours after working with Educational Tours, or a combination of the two—we know you’ve built up a lot of Global Rewards points. Here are just a few of the ways you can make the most of those points that you earn each time you travel!

Tips for making your group's trip extra-special

Attend a Convention Tour

Swap travel tips and stories on a Convention Tour. You can always find the most up-to-date information and itineraries here, but in 2019 you can use your points to travel to Sri Lanka, Northern Spain, and Vienna's Christmas markets.

Why take a group tour

Set off on a free tour

Treat your friend, spouse, or family member to a free spot on your tour, or reserve a spot for yourself on one of our 175+ tours. Tours start as low as 488 points and, if you have your eye on a certain one, you can always talk to your Tour Consultant to find out how many points a specific tour costs. It’s the perfect opportunity to use your points to visit a country you’ve always dreamt of traveling to or to pay it forward by taking someone on the trip of a lifetime.

If you’re looking to head to Europe and experience laid-back, leisurely days in Tuscany, the Florence: The City Experience tour starts at 506 points. If you want your history fix, the Budapest, Vienna & Prague tour starts at 743 points. Or, if a more exotic corner of the globe is calling your name, a spot on the Egypt & the Nile tour starts at 863 points.

Book flights

Purchase tickets and upgrades at discounted rates through our Travel Team. You can fly to some of Europe’s top destinations from a variety of major U.S. hubs for between 300 and 500 points. Here are a few ways you can spend your points if you’re looking to set off on a last-minute European getaway this April.

If you’re located on the east coast, flights from New York to Paris start at 350 points. For those living on the west coast, travel from Los Angeles to London starts at 450 points. And for the travelers living in the midwest, flights from Columbus to Munich start at 400 points.

Gondola ride in Venice, Italy

Hop on extensions and excursions

Add a post-stay or spend your points to take part in even more cultural moments on tour. Spend as few as 10 points to join your group members on an excursion.

Sample some of Italy’s top wines for only 45 points on the Siena & Chianti Wine Tasting excursion. Use 26 points to learn more about Eastern Europe’s political history on the Budapest: A Walk Behind the Iron Curtain excursion. Immerse yourself in the storied past of ancient Egypt on the Abu Simbel excursion, which costs 124 points.

Taking a strategic approach to marketing recruiting

Up your tech game

You can also use your points to buy new electronics or travel gadgets. Hold a pre-tour meeting and raffle them off to your group members to get them even more excited for tour. Or, bring them on tour to create surprise and delight among your group members.

Travel through the airport in style with a piece of Samsonite luggage for 500 points. Bring some new tech to your home with a Bose SoundLink bluetooth speaker for 300 points or a Samsung 40” smart television for 875 points. For 1,295 points, you can even splurge on a Apple Macbook Air laptop.
