Terms and Conditions
The referred Group Leader must have a tour that successfully departs within four years of the referral date and must not have led a prior EF tour as a Group Leader. The referral Points will not be awarded for co-Group Leaders, unless the co-Group Leader is teaching in a different school than the referrer. If the co-Group Leader is from the same school, then the reward is issued after the referred Group Leader travels on a second EF tour independently within four years of the referral entry date. The referral bonus is not valid for a replacement Group Leader in the case that the original Group Leader is unable to travel. To qualify for the reward, the referral must travel within four years of the referral entry date. Referral Points or bonuses are not retroactive. For a qualifying referral, a Group Leader will receive a spot on a Teacher Appreciation weekend (subject to availability), 300 Points or $1,000. Referrers who have not led an EF tour are only eligible for the $1,000 referral bonus. Once the referred Group Leader enrolls participants on a future tour, Points are posted as pending to the referring Group Leader’s account. Points become active on the day the referred Group Leader departs on his or her EF Educational Tour. EF will deduct Points and EF will either issue a direct deposit payment to the referring Group Leader’s bank account if they prefer cash or enroll the qualifying Group Leader in a Teacher Appreciation Weekend. Referral bonuses are only valid for EF Educational Tours. Teacher Appreciation Weekends are for experienced Group Leaders only. Group Leaders eligible for the Global Rewards program can refer Group Leaders to North American Bus Tours and receive a referral bonus if the referred Group Leader travels with 35 full-paying travelers or more. By referring a Group Leader to a North American Bus Tour, the referrer is eligible to receive a spot on a Teacher Appreciation Weekend, 300 Points or $1,000. All other terms relating to the referral program for international travel apply. To qualify for a Teacher Appreciation Weekend, your referral must lead a qualifying tour within the same travel season as the Teacher Appreciation Weekend. All listed point values or cash amounts for referrals are subject to change any time without notice by EF.
