Your Educational Tour Quotation
While we try to make all of our quotations as easy to understand as possible we are aware that there is a lot of information for you to digest, therefore we have included here a range of advice that we feel is worth highlighting.
How We Calculate Your Price:
Our tours are tailor-made to suit your group requirements, offering you total flexibility. We will always try to match your exact requirements, however when requesting your quotation please consider some aspects below that can affect the overall cost per student.
Where there are an odd number of group leaders, we will always accommodate one group leader in a single room at no extra charge, with the remainder in twin bedded rooms. However, if more or all of the group leaders would like single rooms, we have to pass on the single rooms supplement from the accommodation provider.
Free Staff Places:
As standard, we include a 1:10 free place ratio. We will always base the quotation on the free staff ratio that you require. However, a high number of staff places will increase the cost per student.
Our basic packages are nearly always based on transport and accommodation only, unless otherwise stated. However, we are happy to arrange any additional extras such as excursion bookings or coach hire in destinations. Upon receiving your quotation, you will receive a free Destination & Excursion Guide, detailing available excursions in the destination. Remember, if the excursion/visit are not close to your accommodation you may have to add in the cost of coach transport, which we will provide you with as well.
School Trip Insurance:
We can provide fully comprehensive travel insurance for your group. It is not compulsory for you to take our insurance, so check whether your institution provides your group with its own first. If you want to take out insurance with us, just state this on your booking form. Please contact us to receive a copy of your insurance documents.
