Booking Your Flight

Outbound Flight:

You will need the information below to book your outbound flight. This is the Trip Leader who will be picking up your child at the gate upon arrival at the beginning of the trip. To avoid paying the escort fees, you may consider booking your Builder on the same flight as the Trip Leader. If you are using the unaccompanied minor program, make sure your Builder does not arrive before the Trip Leader or there will be nobody to pick them up.

Return Flight:

You will need the information below to book your return flight. This is the Trip Leader who will be dropping off your child at the gate at the end of the trip. To avoid paying the escort fees, you may consider booking your Builder on the same flight as the Trip Leader. If you are using the unaccompanied minor program, make sure your Builder departs before the Trip Leader or there will be nobody to pick them up.

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
