In our experience, nobody likes last minute suprises that cost you more money so we've listed below things that are included in the price of your School Adventure:
Free travelling teacher places
We operate a 1:8 ratio of adults to students, including free of charge the appropriate number of teaching staff required to fulfil this, also taking into account the Exodus appointed Leader. As all quotes are tailor-made we can include more staff places if you wish.
Free kit bag per student
Large rucksacks are expensive and not needed on most of our trips. To keep equipment costs down for your students and to give them a little something to remember us by, they will each recieve one of our purpose designed kitbag!
All inclusive whilst in-country
Some of our prices may look higher than other operators, this is because we ensure that all in-country expenses are covered in the price we quote you – all the food, transport, accommodation and activities on your itinerary. We understand that you don’t want the extra burden of ‘local payments’ and holding students’ money for them.
Expert local leaders and guides
To ensure the smooth running of your trip we employ the best possible local leaders, guides and support staff. These are all costed into your trip and, in most cases, will be managed by the UK leader who may accompany you throughout your visit.
Additional UK leader where necessary
Your trip will be managed and supported from start to finish by one of our hand selected UK leaders. They are well trained and have the relevant National Governing Body qualifications for your itinerary. Each one is CRB checked and above all, their passion, knowledge and experience will ensure your trip is second to none.
All group equipment
All technical, safety and group equipment will be provided for you in-country. This also helps create space when packing!
We do not quote land-only prices for our trips as we know from personal experience how time-consuming and difficult it can be to organise group flights yourself. Our dedicated flights team will be able to source the best available prices for your group, which will be included in the price we quote you.
Comprehensive travel insurance is included in the price of your trip and is a bespoke policy which supports our back-up systems and services of the World Challenge Operations Centre. Comprehensive travel insurance for each participant is included in the price. Details of the cover provided is available here: School Adventures Insurance Summary
Back-up from the World Challenge Operations Centre
Your trip price includes 24-hour support and back-up via the travel industry’s leading school expedition operations centre. World Challenge is renowned for its expertise in supporting school expeditions overseas and we are confident that you and your pupils could not be in better hands if the unexpected happens while you are away.
Dedicated liaison manager for teachers
We know how busy your days are; to make the planning process easier you will have a dedicated liaison manager to ensure all your requests are answered quickly and effectively.
Presentation to parents
We will help take the hassle out of recruiting your group. Our specialist team of school consultants can run a slideshow to students and an information evening at the start of the process to answer parents’ questions and concerns about this type of adventurous travel.
Our size allows us to to get great deals for our customers to help reduce the cost of purchasing kit and inoculations. This includes significant discounts at both Ellis Brigham and Nomad.
