Medical Mission Trips

Are you planning on traveling on a medical mission trip, as a doctor, nurse, college student or just somebody who is interested in helping others? Are you trying to complete charity activities throughout the world? If so, you may be looking to save money on your airfare. That is where we can help you. We are Economy Travel, and we have helped many medical organizations of all sizes with special airfare needs. Since 1988, we have provided international airfare for nonprofit organizations, churches, charities, and medical groups just like yours. Furthermore, this is almost the entirety of our business, helping those who serve others. 

We can help you book flights across the globe, offering special humanitarian rates and special rules (see below for details) to individuals and groups. Learn more about medical mission trips below!

What Is a Medical Mission Trip?

Medical mission trips are trips that take place for the explicit purpose of providing healthcare to those who might not otherwise have access to it. Whether you provide medical mission trips for nurses or medical mission trips for college students, this can be a life-changing experience for all those involved. This includes those giving the care and those receiving it. When you rely on us to help you with your medical mission trip, we can help you get your medical supplies and clothing from place to place. That way, you can maximize the benefits you provide to those in need. We can even help you get three checked bags, on many of our contracted carriers, for free with your humanitarian fares!

If this is something that your organization engages in, then you might be eligible for discounted airfare. That is where we can help you. We work with medical nonprofits of all types, including doctors and nurses!

Advantages for Medical Missions

  • Low Pricing: Most of the time, our fares are lower than the traditional airfares offered directly at the airline's site or with the large airfare websites. There are times when we are much lower because we do not have advance purchase requirements.
  • Added Flexibility: Those who are traveling using humanitarian airfare are using flexible tickets. This allows everyone to change or cancel their plans if something changes at the last minute, with reduced penalties from airlines, in most cases.
  • Baggage Discounts: There are many cases where humanitarian airfare will allow travelers up to three times the standard amount of luggage before they start to charge for bags. Airlines understand that many travelers who fly using humanitarian airfare are doing charitable work and this requires equipment.
  • Extended Ticketing Times: There are cases where tickets via humanitarian airfare can be held for up to 11 months without commitments. This means that travelers can book early, take advantage of lower prices and avoid penalties.
  • One-Way Tickets Allowed: While most travelers have to pay a premium for one-way tickets, humanitarian airfare provides access to one-way tickets at about half of the price of a round-trip fare.
These are just a few of the numerous benefits that come with humanitarian airfare options.
