How to Purchase your Flight

Our programs include everything except your flight and personal spending money. This section is designed to guide you in purchasing your flight. Once accepted into your Sol Abroad program, we will guide you in purchasing your flight. Please make sure you arrive exactly on the start date and depart on the end date of your program (unless you are traveling with family before or after the program). You can arrive or depart any time of the day (purchase the itinerary that is most convenient for you). Our onsite directors will be waiting for you at the local airport and will take you back to the airport on your departure date 3 hours before departure (and also stay with you until you depart in case anything should happen). Please purchase your flight as soon as you are accepted into the program, the sooner you purchase your flight the more money you can save.

Purchase Your Flight

When purchasing your flight, we recommend you use our travel partner StudentUniverse. They work directly with airlines to get you special "Student Flights" that can be substantially cheaper than most search engines and airlines. Millions of high school & university students use their system.

Overnight Flights

We want to remind you that our programs to Argentina and Spain involve overnight flights. The program start date for your session is the day you need to ARRIVE to Argentina or Spain. Therefore you will purchase your flight to leave the US the day before. The end date of our programs is the day that you fly out of Argentina or Spain (for Argentina, you will arrive to the US the next morning).
