“WYSE Travel Confederation stands by its commitment to encourage independent, responsible travel as a means for young people to pursue opportunities to discover and learn. We strongly believe that you should too.
Members of the only global community for international youth and student travel know that young travellers are usually the ones less deterred by adverse travel conditions like terrorism, health scares, and political unrest. Such characteristics of the youth traveller can be found in WYSE Travel Confederation’s specialised research publications on the youth travel marketplace.”
Perspectives from the Management Board and Sector Panel Chair
“I joined WYSE Travel Confederation to be part of its community. We include accommodations, cultural exchange, experiences, insurance and study abroad. Our unique reach is what makes WYSE so special and membership worthwhile.
We are hospitality and exchange. The world needs us, and that is why we will re-grow after COVID-19.”
