5Students tend to travel at a less expensive rate than the average tourist. These figures depend on the exchange rate and personal spending habits which can vary greatly. Those students who travel the traditional student way (youth hostels, practical meal choices, few souvenirs) will have a low budget. Figure around 200 Euros per weekend (10-50 Euro for 2 nights in a youth hostel + meals + museums).
6The local travel agency, AAA Travel Unlimited, organizes optional flights that depart a few US cities each semester and will always arrive in Luxembourg. The average costs of these flights tend to be around $1,400. You are welcome to consider this option when the flight information is made available by AAA, or to purchase your own flight that adheres to the required arrival and departure times.  Keep in mind that if you are using US Federal Government funding for the program, you may need to comply with the Fly America Act.  Check with your funding coordinator.
7You must provide proof of purchase of the GeoBlue overseas accident and sickness coverage. Miami University has a contract with GeoBlue to provide not health insurance, but overseas accidental injury and illness insurance. It is supplemental to health insurance and would be used to cover not only non-routine hospitalization coverage, but can be used by the university to provide family member bedside visits or evacuations from locations should they be needed. GeoBlue takes responsibility for managing the care and the case and can provide guarantee of payment to international providers, which does not leave the student or program director in a position to have to provide immediate out-of-pocket costs.
8MUlaa is a debit account available to all current faculty, staff, and students. It can be used for a wide variety of purchases. Everyone has a MUlaa account; all you need to do to use it is deposit money into the account. See Miami IDs for more information about MUlaa.
9While traveling is important, academics should be your number one priority. Attendance is required and exams are given in each course.
