"Once a Year, go somewhere you've never been" -Dalai Lama
Having our loved ones so far from home can be worrying for parents. New continents, new friends and new experiences – it’s a cause for concern, but also the point! The Abroad Connection exists to make sure study abroad students make the most of their semester in Europe, in a way that maximizes fun while prioritizing safety.
WE’RE WITH YOUR FAMILY WHEN YOU CAN’T BE
At some point you have to let your kids see the world, but it doesn’t ease the anxiety of having them so far away. We have 24/7 chaperones and security staff at all destinations, and have a direct line you can reach us on if you have any questions or concerns.

WHY SHOULD YOUR KIDS TRAVEL WITH THE ABROAD CONNECTION?
1. We have decades of experience
The Abroad Connection team have been working with young travelers in Europe for two decades, and the wealth of our experience translates to not only a perfect traveling experience for our guests, in terms of destinations, itineraries and experiences, but one that is done with exemplary care and a level of professionalism that they deserve – and that should let you rest easily at night.
2. We’re here for you
Whether you come to Barcelona and meet us in person, or need to get on the phone and give us a call, The Abroad Connection extend our customer service not just to the students who travel with us, but to you the parents also. If you have any anxieties, concerns, questions or advice for us, we’re here to listen and help – and don’t forget about our parents’ week activities if you can make it out yourself.
3. We balance fun, with culture
To be honest, sometimes it seems like students abroad party too much. We make sure that their weekends away are perfectly balanced. They’ll spend time with their friends from home universities and the Greek life, as well as new friends studying abroad. Our itineraries all include cultural hits, gastronomical highlights, and we make sure that our students leave with a real sense of where they’ve been.
“The itineraries reminded me of my youth traveling Europe, but without all the headaches. it made sense to send my son on THE Abroad CONNECTION.”
THE ABROAD CONNECTION TAKES CARE OF THE FUN SIDE OF STUDYING
Students keep on coming back to Europe – and for good reason. The old continent perfectly combines the finer things in life, a more relaxed approach to a life lived for the sake of living, with the safety afforded to the developed world, with unparalleled access to health and safety. We know why students come to Europe, and we also know how to maximise their time here so that they can have the most fun, and still get back to their studies.
