Travel For Teens requires all participants to purchase a travel protection plan.
Each year, at least one family typically loses the money they’ve invested in their child’s program because he/she was unable to travel at the last minute due to medical/family emergencies or other unforeseeable situations. Travel For Teens has partnered with Trip Mate to offer travel protection plans, which can help give you some peace of mind that your investment is protected against many unexpected events. Your plan can be purchased directly through us and is included on your Travel For Teens invoice. The cost of your plan is calculated based on the total non-refundable cost of your trip, including all non-refundable airfare you may have purchased through Travel For Teens that appears on your invoice, and the plan benefits chosen: Standard (Plan F4330A) or Premium (Plan F4340A). Note – Premium Plan F4340A cannot be purchased from TFT after September 30, 2022.
