THE PROBLEM WE SOLVE: Traveling youth and students are not prepared to travel abroad safely. Depart Smart offers travel safety training so students can depart smart and return home safely.

If your trip abroad goes wrong will you know what to do?

In the event of civil unrest, accidents, or a natural disaster, do you have an evacuation plan to get home safely? If your son or daughter experiences assault, serious injury, illness, or theft while studying abroad, will they know where to go and how to get help on their own? Every country has different laws and procedures, and your insurance might not cover you when you need it most.

  • Protect yourself and the ones you love with “THE PREMIER TRAVEL SAFETY COURSE”
  • Avoid risks and enjoy worry-free global adventures with a trip-specific customized Emergency Action Plan.
  • World travel provides experiences and education no classroom can provide. Preparing wisely can be lifesaving. 

Enroll today in The Travel Heroes Safety Certification Course crafted by Depart Smart, the nation’s leading experts in travel safety on a mission to teach travelers how to stay safe abroad.
