Although students receive the AIRFARE ALLOWANCE CREDIT to defray the cost of travel, they must book and pay for their airfare ahead of time. The following websites are a good place to start looking for reasonably priced airfares.
Please remember that students should be booking roundtrip tickets, not one-way departures and returns.
