Our Safe Travel Team brings together decades of student travel experience to collaborate and create new safety protocols associated with COVID-19. Our team will assess the safety of each destination, monitor all safety protocols with each vendor, create training and safety plans that will adhere to the CDC and WHO, and local health department guidelines, and closely monitor the evolving guidelines associated with the travel. We will continually update and modify our safety protocols with the latest information.

Student Adventures Commitment to our travelers

Student Adventures will have a team at your side during your travel experience.  Should a participant become diagnosed with COVID-19, we will secure care, arrange transportation home, and cover additional costs associated with quarantine mandates.

The CDC has released a list of preventative measures anyone can take to avoid contracting and spreading illness:

  1. Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. Use alcohol-based sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol if soap and water are not available. 
  2. Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands
  3. Avoid contact with people who are sick.
  4. Stay home when you are sick.
  5. Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
  6. Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.
