All international airline tickets are purchased by TBB to ensure the lowest possible cost and all members of the group have the same itinerary. A separate invoice for airfare will be sent to you in the summer preceding your program. Unfortunately, frequent flyer miles cannot be used for these tickets because they are purchased at group discount rates. You can learn more about ways to make your TBB program possible by visiting our Student Fundraising and Gap Year Scholarships pages. If you have any questions or concerns about tuition and payment, please email us for more information.
What Isn’t Included
Students will need spending money for incidentals, expenses incurred during Independent Student Travel, and snacks. TBB recommends students budget $50 per program week for spending money. However, please note that managing this spending is the responsibility of the students. While Program Leaders can help students plan ahead, it is ultimately the responsibility of students to manage these funds throughout the year.
