The cost for this trip will be approximately $350 for students in Quad Rooms. Students in rooms with fewer than 4 may be required to pay an additional amount. The final trip cost will be subject to the number of passengers and will be announced by September 1. The payment schedule is found below. Please note the cut off date for receiving any money back due to cancellations.
The band fan cost will be approximately $430 per person based on double occupancy. The price for triple occupancy is $382 and the cost for quad occupancy is $357. Adults designated as Chaperones will be charged the student cost of $350. The payment schedule will be the same as the student’s schedule, except that the final amount will be adjusted based on the number of people in the band fan’s room.
Student rooming lists will be compiled in the following way: Students will get to pick a partner to stay with in their room. After all students have a partner, the partners will be combined to include 4 people in each room. No room changes will occur after the room list is submitted to the tour company on September 1.
