Booking Your Flight

Outbound Flight:

To avoid paying the escort fees, you may consider booking your Builder on the same flight as the Trip Leader.

Tips and Tricks for the Unaccompanied Minor Program:

  • You may be able to share the unaccompanied minor fee if you travel in a group. Consider reaching out to your group in GroupMe.
  • Some airlines don’t allow for flights with layovers if using the unaccompanied minor program
  • We discourage flights with layovers in case of flight delays in the circumstance that your child is alone in a connecting airport 
  • Make sure you check the box in your builder portal if you are using the unaccompanied minor program or Trip Leaders won’t know to escort you
  • Make sure you check the box in your builder portal if you are using the unaccompanied minor program or Trip Leaders won’t know to escort you
  • If traveling on United, Delta, or American, with the Trip Leader, be sure to communicate with the Trip Leader so you can check in together. 
  • When traveling, you need to physically check in your Builder at the airport, take them to the departure gate, and remain until the flight has left the ground
  • We strongly encourage you to check in at least 2 hours early – give yourself 30 minutes longer than you normally would
  • Send a copy of your child’s travel itinerary with them
