To simplify the exchange procedure and ensure that your trip abroad does not involve hidden glitches, your travel details must be handled by the ESSEX approved travel agency, Tzell Park AvenueThey handle the arrangements for hundreds of Rotary ESSEX exchange students each year and are quite familiar with all visa and travel requirements for the Rotary Youth Exchange. This lets you focus on getting prepared for your foreign adventure!

Once accepted to the program, ESSEX requires all students to register with the Tzell Travel Agency, which will immediately assign a travel counselor to you. The agency will purchase air tickets at the best rates to meet the requirements of our organization, secure your travel visa, and alert you to special or unusual requirements which a particular country may require. Your counselor will get all your paperwork in order and, in some cases, arrange for a travel agent to see you off from your airport.

There is a modest fee for their services.
