Pre-Trip Logistics

  • Payment of the $800 trip deposit and completion of the trip registration form is required at least three (3) months prior to travel. Airline tickets will not be purchased until the deposit is received. Delaying this may result in increased airfare. Dates are not guaranteed until deposits are received.

  • Trips are first come first serve - choose your dates early and notify trips@pidonline.org.

  • PID purchases team airline tickets, unless other arrangements are made.

  • Balance of trip cost is due one (1) month prior to departure. Airline information will be released after final payment is received.

  • All dates are subject to change depending on group requirements. Other dates can be arranged for groups of 10 or more people wishing to have their own team.

  • Please note that children ages 13-15 must travel with a parent; children ages 16-17 traveling must be accompanied by a supervising adult with the permission of the parent. The supervising adult must be able to make arrangements in case of a cancelled flight or other unexpected circumstances.

  • If you plan to purchase your own ticket, please talk to the trip@pidonline.org team so they can advice you of landing and departure time of the team. You will have to pay additional transportation fees to and from the airport if you do not coordinate your landing and departure with the rest of the team.
