Magellan Study Abroad Makes Strides in Offsetting Increasing Cost of Airfare for Its Month-long Programs to Spain

California-based language immersion company begins its third annual "Countdown to Summer" promotion with significant savings

LOS ANGELES, Feb. 7, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — Magellan Study Abroad continues its effort to offset the rising cost of airfare for participants of its month-long immersion programs to Spain with its "Countdown to Summer" promotion. Students who enroll in a 2013 summer immersion program between February 7, 2013 and March 25, 2013 can deduct up to $1400 from their program fees. Both ticket confirmation and proof of purchase from a roundtrip air ticket will be necessary to receive an immediate discount on the program fees. Parents can book the flight of their choice on the airline of their choice.

Traditionally study abroad programs never include air travel in their prices. Over the last couple of years airfares have been rising steadily, making it harder for some families to join the unique travel and study opportunities Magellan Study Abroad offers. As a result, Magellan has created a special incentive, just before summer enrollment starts. "Because we know and understand how much positive impact our study abroad programs have, for the last 3 years we have offered the flight to Spain, our number-one destination," says Chris Chabaudie, Magellan Study Abroad Executive Director. He adds "We not only have the best value for money when it comes to our 4-week study abroad summer programs for teens, but we do our part when it comes to helping families make this important decision."

"Magellan's consistent program quality is the main reason for enrolling in the program, but by including the airfare, it makes the decision that much easier," says Terri Milligan from California, whose daughter Dru has participated in two summer programs in a row. "What has set Magellan aside is not only that the teens are receiving an outstanding quality program, but the peace of mind we get from their hands-on staff always keeping us posted on activities and student progress."
