Remember - We're always Happy to Help!



There are so many different options available for any particular tour that provide opportunity for a more cost effective price or upgrades with certain hotels that you might miss out on a better deal. Additionally, you might have your own particular curriculum requirements that need to be built into the itinerary.

Rest assured, you will always be dealing with a real live person and you will have direct contact with the same person all the time. You will never have to deal with an anonymous person in a call centre.



It is our absolute, number one, priority to ensure that you are happy with the details of your Tour Itinerary before you book and it is important that you have the time to do this.

It is also important to remember, however, that prices change all the time (particularly the cost of flights) and it is with this in mind, that we would urge you to try and confirm the booking as soon as possible. We will provide a quote according to your enquiry for the best prices on the day. Communication is the key to getting the best deal and we will work to ensure that we respond to your requests as quickly as possible to guarantee the best prices for you.



Our usual ratio of free places is one member of staff for every 10 students. It is occasionally possible for us to arrange other 'free place' ratios. If you would like to receive a quote for other ratios then please let us know in your initial enquiry.
