Travel Insurance: The 2022 Educator Tour has low cost trip insurance available for purchase. In 2020 and 2021, every Educator Tour traveler received a 100% refund for their reservation fee, including the cost of the trip insurance, when the trip was canceled due to COVID-19 travel restrictions. Trip Insurance is comprehensive, with a full refund available for literally any reason, until the day before departure.

Who Can Travel With Us: All Educator Tours are open to the general public. East County Schools FCU has been the corporate sponsor of this trip since its inception and as such, the trip is largely comprised of members of the East County education community, working and retired, and their friends and families. There is so much FUN on these trips, and such a connection amongst travelers, that many travelers attend year after year. Every year, our trip has an optional side tour to an educational facility in that area, which contributes to making them a work expense for some. Educator Tours are booked through the East County Chamber of Commerce, who hosts additional trips throughout the year.

  • Marcel Becker testimonial
    What mattered to me, was that I needed the money to buy a motorhome, and I needed it now. This is the fastest I've ever experienced for a loan. It's never been this easy or this pleasant and I could tell that this was simply the way ECSFCU serves all of their members; it's their culture. I wasn't a member when I started, but I am now.
