Early Bird Details

What are Early Bird prices?

Early Bird prices are what you get for booking early. These are the lowest prices you’ll find because our supplier costs need to be adjusted as we get closer to trip departure dates. If you ever see your trip for a lower price, we will match it. No questions asked.


What is the Final Days Super Deal?

Our Early Bird prices are coming to a close on July 10, 2017. So we’re going bigger and offering an extra $200 off all trips. Don’t miss your chance for the best deals of the year.


What happens after Early Bird prices?

All trip prices will increase on July 10th, 2017 at 11:59pm EST. Many trips will fill before the deadline.


How much will prices increase?

This varies by trip, date, and gateway—but expect 10–30% increases (or more in some rare cases).


Do I have to pay in full to lock in current prices?

Nope! If your trip is more than 99 days away, all you need is the minimum deposit. The rest of your price will be split evenly in monthly or bi-weekly payments. For more information, see here. 


What if I don’t know exactly which date or trip I want?

Our suggestion? Pick one, then place a deposit to lock in the current price. You can switch dates or trips with no additional fees up to 99 days before you leave.


Will my trip sell out?

While we don't have a crystal ball, our trips have limited space, and spots could fill before the deadline. That’s why we recommend booking as soon as possible.


I can’t afford a trip. What options do I have?

You don't have to pay for your entire trip up front. With our payment plans, you simply put down a deposit, and then pay a little each month (interest free). You can also score some extra discounts by referring friends to travel with EF Ultimate Break. Learn more about our referral program here. And check out some additional tips to help you save for travel.


What if I’m traveling with friends or family?

Each person in your group should book independently before the deadline. Once you’re booked, call us and we’ll do our best to accommodate your flight and rooming requests.


I want to book using multiple credit or debit cards, is this possible?

Totally. Just call us at 1-800-766-2645.


I am having trouble booking online. What should I do?

Call us! Our systems can get overwhelmed with travelers trying to book online before the deadline.
