International Airfare

We’ll begin pricing out airfares in late spring early summer. Marsha and Andrew will agree on a flight itinerary and price that work best for the dates and we’ll work with passengers individually to purchase air. If you’d like to use credit card points or miles for airfare, we’ll work with you individually on that option as well. 


Andrew W Lyon Travel will be sending out specific visa application instructions for each member of the group this summer. If you do not already have a passport, please apply soon and plan to have your passport no later than June 2015. Each individual will send their passport, passport sized photos, and application to Andrew W Lyon travel and we’ll handle all the logistics, double checking all information and working with our partners at the Indian embassies to ensure the visas are returned with no problems.
