This page details GEEO’s promotions and discounts. If you’re interested in fundraising for your GEEO program, head over to our blog or our Grants & Funding Advice page to learn more.

GEEO offers various promotions that can make it even more affordable to travel with us. Our advice is to book early as we typically offer few, if any, promotions from October onwards. All below discounts are valid only for trips during the 2019 and 2020 calendar year unless otherwise noted. These discounts and promotions do not apply to optional add-ons such as the “My Own Room” fee, pre/post night hotels, airport transfers, insurance and airfare.

GEEO Early Booking Discount

At GEEO we like to get people to book as early as possible so they have plenty of time to prepare for their trip and so we know which programs are proving to be the most popular. To encourage you to make an early decision, we offer a 5% early booking discount for all participants who sign up within the first month of our programs being available.

Promotion Details:
– 5% OFF on top of GEEO’s regular already discounted prices
– Valid on all of our non-private programs
– Deposits must be received within defined promotional period
– Can be used in conjunction with Multi-Trip Discount (See below)

GEEO Alumni Early Booking Discount

To show how much we value your loyalty, GEEO offers this promotion exclusively to our “alumni” travelers. For a limited time we offer an 8% early booking discount exclusively for educators who have traveled with GEEO in the past.

Promotion Details:
– 8% OFF on top of GEEO’s regular already discounted prices
– Exclusive to past GEEO travelers
– Valid on all of our non-private programs
– Deposits must be received within defined promotional period
– Can be used in conjunction with Multi-Trip Discount (See below)
– Can be used in conjunction with Educator Referral Program (See below)

Multi-Trip Discount

The Multi-Trip Discount is available to all participants, regardless of whether they traveled with GEEO before or not. Often flying overseas is the most expensive component of one of our programs. We try to schedule our programs to allow participants to go on two or even three different programs in a row within the same region. This way you get the most bang for your buck when flying overseas. In order to make those programs more affordable for participants who wish to travel more with GEEO, we have created the Multi-Trip Discount. If you book two or more GEEO programs with travel dates between September 1st and August 31st of the following year, you will receive 10% off of the lesser value program** (up to 3 programs). If these bookings were made during a sale period (5% or 8% sales) you will receive the sale period discount on the most expensive of the programs you booked and then 10% off of each additional lesser value program. Those additional lesser value programs would not receive the early booking bonus.

Promotion Details:

– Book two or more GEEO programs with travel dates between September 1st and August 31st of the following year, and you will receive 10% off on the lesser value program (up to 3 programs)
– If you book three programs you will receive the 10% discounts on the 2 least expensive programs
– $350 deposit required per program. You will lose this discount if you cancel one of the of the programs.
– You may only use one discount per trip. For example, if you book two programs in the early booking period, you will receive the early booking discount on the most expensive of the programs you booked and then 10% off of each additional lesser value program. Those additional lesser value programs would not receive the early booking bonus.
– The discount does not apply to programs that you have already traveled on. For example, you book our Winter Egypt trip, travel on this program, then return home and book our Summer Galapagos program. In this case, you would not qualify for a multi-trip discount. If you booked the Summer Galapagos trip before you traveled on the Winter Egypt trip then you would have qualified for the Multi-trip discount.

Educator Referral Program

This is a promotion that is only open to past GEEO travelers. GEEO’s goal is to make travel a standard part of professional development for educators. We want our past participants to share their GEEO experiences with their colleagues in the hope that it will encourage their colleagues to travel as well. If you have traveled with GEEO before and sign up for one of our programs, we will reward you with a $100 discount off the price of your program for each new teacher that you refer who books one of our programs and travels in the same year as you. To qualify, your referrals must never have traveled with GEEO before. They must mention your name in the field of our online booking form labeled “How did you find out about GEEO?” Please note that if you refer multiple people under this program, you will receive multiple discounts of $100, up to the price of your trip. These discounts have no cash value.

Promotion Details:

– Valid on bookings made from August 15th through June 1st of the following year
– Receive $100 off your program when you refer a new traveler who signs up for a GEEO program, pays for the trip and does not cancel the trip before the final cancellation deadline
– This promotion can only be generated by a new booking made by a current teacher who has never traveled with GEEO before
– This promotion can only be earned by past GEEO travelers
– Deposits on new travelers must be received within the dates of the promotion exclusively
– New bookings must identify the referring person at time of booking; claiming this after booking will not qualify for the $100 discount
– New traveler can book on any program and does not have to travel on the same program as the person who referred them is traveling on
– Not available on private programs such as ones we run for specific organizations and schools
– This promotion can be used in conjunction with both the Multi-Trip Discount and an Early Booking Discount
– Each new traveler can only name one referral source
– Neither the referrer or the referee qualify if they are somehow receiving a free trip from GEEO.

Private Departures

Our promotions do not apply to our private programs that we run with other organizations and schools unless otherwise already negotiated.

We reserve the right to alter, modify or cancel any discount at any time, but persons who qualified for a discount at the time of booking shall still be entitled to receive the discount.
