Easy ways to earn rewards

Full-Paying Travelers

Earn Rewards Points for each full-paying traveler that travels on your program. The number of points per full-paying traveler is determined by the number of nights of your program, the type of transportation, and when the full-paying traveler signs up relative to your travel dates. Use the grid below to see how many points you can earn:

By Air

  • 4 Points
    per full-paying traveler, per night for early registration
  • 2 Points
    per full-paying traveler, per night for standard registration

By Bus

  • 2 Points
    per full-paying traveler, per night for early registration
  • 1 Point
    per full-paying traveler, per night for standard registration

Big Group Bonus

The more full-paying travelers that travel with you, the bigger the Rewards. When you travel at the thresholds below, you’ll receive a special Rewards Points bonus.

Bonus thresholds vary slightly for Science programs. If you are traveling on a science based program, please consult your WorldStrides Account Manager for specifics.

By Air

  • 100 Points
    40+ full-paying travelers
  • 200 Points
    80+ full-paying travelers

By Bus

  • 100 Points
    75+ full-paying travelers
  • 200 Points
    150+ full-paying travelers
Do the math! A bigger group means bigger Rewards!

For example, a 4 night trip by air with 50 full-paying travelers means:



  • 40 full-paying travelers

    (signing up during early registration)

  • 4 nights
  • 4 points per night

  • 640 points
  • 10 full-paying travelers

    (signing up during standard registration)

  • 4 nights
  • 2 points per night

  • 80 points
  • 100 Big Group Bonus Points

  • 820 points
