Over 30 Years Experience In Youth Travel 



Welcome to the world of Exchange Student Travel a world that Tzell has been a part of for over 30 years.

Students and their families face many challenges as they prepare for that all-important year abroad; passport, visa, fares, luggage, etc.

Tzell has a full-time staff of Youth Exchange specialists who instruct, advise, and encourage from the time you register to the time you return from your exchange experience. 

Tzell provides students and families with:

?  Extended hours of operation during the summer months

?  Online, fillable documents for visa and/or residency permit applications

?  Samples of completed visa and/or residency permit forms

?  Information on electrical current and currency in your host country

?  Information on baggage allowances

?  Toll free number for questions and advice 

Many students travel in groups. Some even have an escort. Often with groups Tzell personnel provide group departure assistance at the major gateway airports. 

We hope you'll let us assist you with your exchange travel plans. We know you'll be glad you did.
