General Guidelines

Regardless of age, every traveler and their parent/guardian if they are under the age of 18, must sign off on the Breakaway Guidelines agreement which outlines the expectations of each traveler, including alcohol use. Clearly stated within these guidelines is an agreement that anyone legally able to consume alcohol must do so responsibly. Any abuse of alcohol can lead to reduction of privileges up to and including removal from the trip.

If an underage traveler is caught consuming alcohol, or is in possession of alcohol, it will result in a student meeting with a Breakaway Leader and a phone call home. Consequences will be decided on a case-by-case basis, and depending on the severity, this could result in removal from the program.

It is the responsibility of the traveler and/or parents to pay for their return home in the case of removal due to breaking of the Breakaway Tours Traveler Guidelines.

We want everyone to have a fun and safe trip with us!
