Members Only International Group Travel
Traveling abroad can be intimidating, but traveling with a group helps to make it all much easier. Between having us there, and your fellow CRUISRs, you'll have all the resources you need to get through a month of travel (or two, or three...). Here's all the stuff we take care of so you don't have to:
We take 20 members on each trip, with great group rates, providing a better experience for a lot less than you'd pay on your own. We also arrange travel to and from the airport in the destination city, so it's a smooth ride the whole way.
We've partnered with the legendary Generator Hostels to give you the best possible international group accommodations. Our accommodations are often nicer than apartments, and include amenities like 24/7 work areas, free WiFi, restaurants, bars, nightclubs, and free breakfast.
We’ll make sure you have 24/7 access to workspaces and internet everywhere you stay. If you want to unplug though, that’s cool too – we throw in a Metro Card to help get you started exploring your new city.
Guided Tours & Adventures
Your Tour Manager will be along for the ride the whole time you're on a trip, ready to help connect you with tours, local trips, adventures, and anything else you need while you're abroad.
We set up private online groups for socializing and collaborating with the rest of the CRUISRs on your trip. The community aspect of CRUISR is extremely important, and we strive to put together a group that will want to be together all the time during, and even after the trip.
Our communities live in close proximity and share many adventures together, so it's very important to build a strong community bond. We start with a Welcome Mixer, where everyone can start getting to know each other. Every week we have a social event either at our accommodations or at a special location. At the end, we send everyone off with a Farewell Dinner.
Anytime you need help, we're there for (and with!) you. You will meet your Tour Manager in person when you first arrive, and they will act as your first resource for the rest of your journey. You can contact your Tour Manager or CRUISR Support 24/7 by Phone, Email and Chat.
Membership costs just $20 per year, with access to all of our trips. Each trip costs $3000.
JUST THE FAQS
Our sessions are $3000 flat rate per month. If you choose to stay for additional months, we will adjust your pricing to account for differences in travel costs.
We review and accept members as they apply. Due to overwhelming demand, it may take up to 5 days to review applications. Once reviewed, we will send you an email with your application status and more info, so sit tight!

You will need a passport to travel with CRUISR, which we will confirm during your final interview. Most countries require that your passport be valid for at least six months after the end of the trip, and some locations may require visas. We will help you with all the details if you are selected.
One of the most valuable and unique aspects of CRUISR, is the community that we hand pick to come together for each session. We are looking for great diversity across industries, cultures, age, interests, beliefs and passions. Whether you’re an entrepreneur, artist, doctor, DJ, yogi, programmer or a juggler, we look for people with drive to discover the world, and who will work well within the communities we curate.
To participate in a session, you must agree to stay at the selected accommodations, and travel with your group; because we book everything as a group, we are able to pass along group discounts to our groups.
Food ends up being the biggest budget shifter for our travelers; your budget can reduce significantly if you utilize the kitchen space included in your accommodations, while foodies will need to stay conscious of their budget. Generally, we recommend budgeting $40-$100 per day, if you plan to eat out for one or more meals. We recommend budgeting:
• $5-15 for lunch
• $20-40 for dinner
• $10-25 for drinks/going out after dinner
• $5-10 for local travel costs
As soon as a session is made available, we'll update members through email, and add it to our site. Trips tend to fill up fast and are first come first serve, so make sure to reserve as early as possible!
Your Tour Manager is available 24/7 in each city with you for the whole trip. They can help you navigate the city, work out logistics for local travel, and connect you with whatever is needed to make your trip enjoyable.
Pack as light as possible! For new travelers, overpacking is often a mental crutch while 'running into the unknown' that is a new country. The best way to look at your packing is to make sure you bring items that are reusable, and can be layered. Here's a great article from USAToday that can help you plan.
