We want to bring more fun and sisterhood back to our donor community. Many alumni associations also sponsor travel for fun and community. And yes, we will talk to you about Foundation while on our trips!
Please sign up for the email list for any trip you are interested in and you will be notified via email when we have more details worked out. Or keep an eye on the travel website & social media.
Yes, for almost all trips. Our trips are mostly designed for adults, but all are welcome. Chicago in 2023 is family-friendly.
Yes, and you have many options. I had been skeptical about travel insurance until my husband had emergency eye surgery 2 days before a trip, and it paid off. Now I carry an annual travel policy (see below). You should also check with your medical insurance provider to understand what they cover should you have issues outside of the USA. Medicare generally does not provide coverage outside of the USA.
Phi Mu Foundation does not carry travel insurance for you, nor do we have an agreement with a preferred insurance provider.
With our Travel Providers:
For AHI Travel trips (Spain, Dutch Waterways, Holiday Markets), AHI offers a program that covers incidents during the trip. It does NOT cover incidents (like my husband’s eye surgery) that happen before departure. Medical coverage is limited.
For Alaska, Oceania also offers a program run by Aon insurance.
Premium Credit Cards (AmEx Platinum, Chase Reserve, etc.) usually also provide some travel insurance for trips paid for on their card. I always book trips on my premium card just for this service. Check your card’s website for what they cover.
Travel Insurance packages can include insurance for just this trip or for the full year. I carry an annual travel insurance policy that covers all my travel, not just individual trips. It really is up to you. Travel insurance comparison websites include Squaremouth and InsureMyTrip. US News recently ranked all travel insurance companies here.
Insurance is something you hope you’ll never need but are glad when you need it.
It’s the smart thing to do.

Depends on the trip. The 2024 cruises are an excellent choice for the mobility-challenged, though you should bring your own companion if needed.
We selected trips based on when it was best to go & when our vendors had space. For summer 2023, we have a long weekend trip to Chicago July 13-16 & are working on another weekend trip in June. For 2024, we have an Alaska cruise from August 6-16 after Convention & a December 3-11 river cruise to Germany for the Christmas markets, so it may depend on when your school lets out. We also hope to have a long weekend trip in summer 2024, Historically, the Foundation did not get a lot of educators or families/school kids on their trips, so we did not limit trips to summer break.
Of course, or if you need one, we can pair you up. Note that the 2024 river cruises are 'no single supplement' so you can have a cabin by yourself for no extra charge.
No, but the vendors can book for you or you can use credit card miles.
We will add more trips depending on the reaction to the 2023-24 pilot. The vendors have very long lead times, so we'll be planning for 2025 this year.
