Booking policy during the COVID-19 outbreak:
Youth International is moving forward as scheduled with the September 14 start date for all of our fall programs. The situation with COVID-19 is, however, still very fluid. It is possible that we might have to start our trips slightly later than originally planned. As always, all of our decisions will be made with the health and safety of our participants being our number one priority. We will never send a Youth International team anywhere that is not considered safe. As always, we will continue to consult the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) and the US State Department, and will follow their guidance and policies.
Youth International is offering special flexibility with its refund policies due to COVID-19. First, as has always been the case, if a trip had to be cancelled, for any reason, the full amount of all money deposited toward the program will be refunded immediately. If a program is rescheduled, the participant will have the option to either cancel for a full refund or transfer their program payments to the newly scheduled program.
In addition, due to COVID-19, Youth International is offering full refunds on program deposits up until July 1, 2020 to all participants who change their mind for any reason at all on traveling in fall 2020.
