Explore our itineraries that keep eyes up, phones down and work for every budget. From experiencing life in the trenches on a WW1 battlefield tour, to skiing down the piste with their pals, these are memories that will last a lifetime (but shouldn’t take all your spare time to plan).

Supporting you every step of the way

Creating Your Perfect Trip

You’ll work closely with our Tour Advisers to create a trip that suits your group’s needs and learning objectives. Our Tour Advisers are experts in their subject area and have personally visited each destination.

Launching your trip to parents and students

The next step is to get your trip approved and then get students signed up to it. Our ‘Trip Launch Pack’ will help you with this step. Full of resources, it’s completely free to download and is designed to make your life easier at this crucial point in the trip planning process.

After you've booked

Once your booking’s been confirmed, your Itinerary Coordinator will start work on the finer details. They’ll make sure your itinerary makes the most of your time and they’ll take on most of the admin tasks for your trip (phew).

Support while you're away

From lost property to properly lost, we’ll always be on the end of the phone while away with 24/7 support. You’ll also get a final info pack before you go, and you’ll be able to access all your trip documents via the Vamoos app.

After your trip

Once you’re back, we’ll ask you to complete a detailed feedback survey, so we can continue to develop our trips and service. Let’s start planning your next trip now too, so you can give parents plenty of time to pay for it (and so it’s less stressful for you).
