GIVE $500, GET $500



You and your referred "friends" can all receive $500 when they travel with School Tours of America.
This offer is so good, we're limiting you to three friends.

Here's how it works:

Step 1

Talk to a friend about how awesome student travel is, and how we’re just the company to plan with.

Step 2

Once they're ready to start planning, submit your referral by completing the form below.

Step 3

Their group travels STA, you both earn $500!
That could mean up to $1,500 for you!







Did we mention you also receive $25 for every full-paying participant when they travel?  
We're not joking! In addition to the $500 bonus, we'll give you another $25 for every full-paying participant that travels with them.


We're here to help! Send an email to and we'll send you the tools you need to get more students experiencing the power of travel with STA!
