Trip Advisor FAQs

  • How much does it cost an advisor for an AB trip? Trip Advisors attend the AB trip at no charge to themselves, with the exception of incidentals and food purchased en route to and from the trip location.
  • Can my partner and/or children attend with me? This is usually not possible for risk management purposes; however, we are happy to evaluate on a case-by-case basis.
  • Will I share a room with students? In most cases yes, as AB trips travel very economically. Most trip accommodations are made through hostels and churches with shared room accommodations. Exact accommodations vary by trip.
  • More questions?  Please review the Advisor Manual here or located on Connect. 


Trip Advisor Applications will be available on Connect in the Fall.
