Group Flights. World Learning arranges scheduled air transportation through designated airlines or travel agents and has designated (or will designate) the times and ports of departure for all group transportation. Supervised international group travel for US-based students is arranged by The Experiment and billed separately from the program fee. All students are required to travel with their group on the group flight arranged by The Experiment. Any request for an exception to this policy must be submitted in writing. There is a $250 inconvenience fee for students flying independently from the group.
World Learning, the agents selected by it, and the airlines reserve the right to cancel the air transportation arrangement or change dates, times, prices, and itinerary, and to make aircraft substitutions. In the event changes or substitutions are made by World Learning, its agents, or the airlines at any time prior to the program date, the parties agree that World Learning is not responsible for the cost of airline tickets or any associated fees, including change fees or cancellation fees.
