To be eligible for this travel protection, you must pay the TRP cost of $299 with your initial deposit and/or within 14 days of your initial registration with this trip. See below for more details or feel free to call for questions.

It’s that simple. We look forward to seeing you in 2025!

During registration, you will have the opportunity to purchase our optional Trip Refund Protection (TRP) Plan. If you elect to purchase the optional TRP Plan, the standard cancellation policy is as follows:

Within 24 hours following our receipt of your registration deposit payment, you may cancel your STP program and receive a full refund. If you, your Program Leader, the group/school, or the School’s Administration, need to cancel beyond the initial 24-hour grace period, for any reason and up to 5 days (60 hrs.) prior to your scheduled travel date (Air Flight Inclusive Travel Programs), the Trip Refund Protection (TRP) Plan will reimburse you for 100% of the amounts you’ve paid, minus the TRP enrollment fee paid and minus your initial trip deposit (plus, where applicable, other Non-Refundable Fees* you may have incurred).

For additional information regarding TRP, please refer to our Term and Conditions.

*Please note airfare is not included in the cost of your STS Travel Package. Upon registration for your trip, we will provide you with an estimate of the cost of roundtrip airfare, based on your departure city.  You will then need to add that estimated air cost to the total cost of your STS Travel Package. Once we have received your registration, deposit, and selected departure city airport, we will then work to secure you the best airfare costs at that time. Once your final costs have been determined, and if the estimated cost is higher than the actual cost, we will refund you the difference. Likewise, if your estimated cost is lower than the actual cost you will owe that amount to use. We will contact you to get your approval before charging any additional costs to your account.

Payment Schedule


Your adventure may be paid in two payments but must be paid in full prior to the deadline date.  Payments will be accepted in US Dollars only.  Payments may be forwarded by bank check or money order and also by Visa or Mastercard.  Below is our requested payment schedule:

Any participant not paid in full by 60 days prior to your departure date will be subject to late fees. Space is limited and sold on a first come first served basis.

Please note trip costs do NOT Include round trip airfare. Airline prices are based on market rates at the time of confirmation and are subject to change.

Minimum / Maximum Participation


Each coach can carry a maximum of 50 youth participants and 2 adult STS Staff.  WorldStrides requires a minimum of 30 paid participants per coach.  If there are less than 30 paid participants per coach, the trip may be cancelled.  A full refund will be made to all participants if the trip is canceled due to lack of participation.
