Looking to travel the globe in general? Luckily, this student group is built for young individuals that are looking to explore in their free time.

The Contiki travel group is limited to individuals between the ages of 18 and 35, catering specifically to students (or young people in general) that want to gain some cultural experiences in their free time.

These trips are spread across multiple continents and you can choose an adventure that takes you anywhere from a couple days in a location to a couple of weeks. Plus, these trips typically include adventures to multiple locations, so when it comes to your money, you’re definitely making the most of it with this group!

Plus, this group offers a variety of fun excursions to give a little more oomph to your study abroad trip, so you can take advantage of skydiving, skiing and other adventurous activities on your trip. So whatever the trip you’re looking for looks like, this group is a great starting place for you!

4. EF College Break

Looking for a trip where the flight is included in the price of admission? You and everyone else. But luckily for you, the EF College Break student travel group actually does that for you! So when you purchase your trip, your airfare is included, which means you have one less thing that you have to worry about when it comes to your adventure.

In addition, this group has many holiday trips, so you can actually celebrate holidays in different countries to experience them exactly how the locals do. And again, your trips are the length that you want them to be, so you can adventure anywhere from one week to a month, so you can pick the location and the duration that works best for you, your travel needs and your schedule. Talk about a win-win, right?!

5. WSA (Weekend Student Adventures) – Europe

If you’re looking for an authentic study abroad trip, look no further. This student travel group, based in Europe, pairs students with tour guides that grew up in the area in question, so when it comes to the real study abroad experience, you can bet you’re getting it in this group.

The trips are exactly as they sound: weekend adventures. Plus, they’re entirely affordable, a ton of fun and definitely something you will want to add to your list.
