Services

Electing to take a gap year or career break is a bold and exciting decision. At EnRoute, we pride ourselves in understanding the complicated process of planning and successfully executing a gap year and eagerly work to provide excellent service to every client. Each EnRoute consultation is unique and completely customized based on the student’s individual objectives.

Every potential client family is entitled to a free introductory conversation. This hour-long dialogue offers you an opportunity to get to know our process and brainstorm about the possibilities of gap time. To set up an introductory conversation, fill out our online questionnaire and we will be in touch to book a time.

Standard Consultation: $1,995

A Standard Consultation is our flagship offering for a family who desires the unique, personalized service that EnRoute has offered families for almost ten years. A Standard Consultation will begin with a no-obligation introductory conversation to go over a completed questionnaire, to discuss the fundamentals of a gap year, as well as review the role EnRoute will play in the planning process. After you become an official client, EnRoute will officially begin researching opportunities with your parameters in mind.

Services Included with a Standard Consultation:

  • Initial introductory assessment to determine goals of time off and process of planning gap year
  • A 15-hour phone call/meeting retainer for use by students and parents to structure and clarify their plans, plus unlimited e-mailing
  • Program and activity recommendations based on a personalized, extensive search of reputable and vetted service/travel organizations based on consults and/or meetings
  • Assistance in budgeting, itinerary and other logistical issues
  • Working closely with parents to instill confidence in the reliability of chosen organizations and programs
  • Pre-departure preparation assistance
  • On-the-Ground Support*

The formal services associated with the Standard Consultation end when the student returns from their time off or when the 15 hour retainer is exhausted.

Payment & Refunds

At EnRoute, we’re dedicated to helping create a memorable and meaningful gap year experience. After the introductory consultation, we allow up to two weeks to give you and your family time to make an informed decision about formally hiring EnRoute. We ask that payments be made in full before the formal consultation process begins. This ensures we are able to fulfill our services without delay. We regret to inform that we are not able to give refunds once payment is received. We will, however, do everything we can to meet your satisfaction. Thank you for understanding.
