Payment Issues Are you “on-track” and current with your scheduled payments? See me after this if you are not sure Final Auto-Pay is 9/1 EF Customer Service 1-800-665-5364
Passport Issues Check to make sure it is not going to be within 6 months of expiration date while we are away. Copy the “picture” page of your passport for me and make one for yourself.
Packing Issues “Death-By-Suitcase” is not a pretty sight. Please know that YOU AND ONLY YOU are 100% responsible for every single movement of your suitcase. Small suitcases are your friend!! 3-1-1 Rule for Carry-Ons Additional information can be found at http://www.tsa.gov/
Spending Money EF recommend $40-60 per day (lunch/sodas/souvenirs) ATM (check with your bank for fees) EF Travel Card (pre-paid/re-loadable Visa) We can exchange a small amount of cash for Euros at airport. CALL banks & credit card companies so they can “flag” your account. Have a copy of card to leave with parents at home. Make sure you have the Customer Service Phone #s with you just in case.
Phone EF does have international “eKit pre-paid phone cards.” Telephoning can sometimes be difficult timewise. If you are taking a cell phone double check to make sure you can call International (YOU are responsible for your phone). Students will call when the opportunity is available.
