Find out how easy it is to enroll in a Rustic trip by following these three steps:

1. Pick your Rustic experience.

Before you start the online enrollment form, select a program (or programs) and dates that work for your schedule. If you need help choosing a program, watch our How to Choose a Program video series or call a Global Programs Advisor (GPA), our team of travel experts at 440.975.9691.

2. Complete the online enrollment form.

To complete enrollment, you need two things: 5 mins of your time and a credit card (for the one-time enrollment fee). Other documentation (Passport, medical records, etc…) can be added later. We’re also happy to assist you on the phone. Just give our GPA team a call at 440.975.9691.

3. Become your PTA’s best friend.

Once you complete the online enrollment form, you’ll receive a welcome letter via email in 48-72 business hours from your Personal Travel Advisor. Your Advisor will help you book a domestic flight (if necessary), fill out medical forms, and complete your payment. They’ll be available for anything else that might come up before your teen’s trip. Think of them as your new Rustic BFF.

Choosing a Program

Can I enroll in multiple programs? How do I connect programs?

All programs in the same country or region can be seamlessly combined. Our website indicates the dates that teens depart and return to the United States. They may overlap because travel time has been included. If your program dates overlap by a day or two, that means they connect in country!

Payment Section

What are my payment options?

Choose to pay by secure electronic check / ACH payment, electronic wire transfer, or check. There are three payment schedules to choose from.

  1. Pay in full when you enroll.
  2. Pay in two installments if you enroll before March 4. Make your first installment 15 days after enrolling and your final installment 90 days before departure. After March 4, consult your Advisor for information about payment plans.
  3. Pay the minimum amount due at enrollment (enrollment fee) and we’ll email you a link to your invoice, at which time you can choose to pay in full or in installments.

Cancellation / Other Info

What if I need to cancel my program?

We hope this doesn’t happen, but if it does, you can find all the cancellation options in our No-Stress Travel Policy if you need to cancel for any reason.

If you have any other questions, feel free to reach out to our Global Program Advisors at 440.975.9691 or email at We’re excited for you to travel with us!
