School Trip Tips To Planning a Memorable Travel Experience
Our top school trip tips will have you plan memorable class trips for your students. These experiences are an amazing opportunity for students to make their first steps into the world of travel. In many cases it is their first trip without their parents. With their peers, friends and educators they now get to explore and make new discoveries together. Here are some tips to planning a successful school trip with your student group tour to Washington DC or New York City, Boston and Montreal/ Quebec City or even to Italy, France and Costa Rica. TIP 1- Booking your trip early The sooner you book your class trip the better your chances of getting your first choice of hotels, meals and attractions. You can even upgrade to high superior hotel at surprisingly low rates. With our trip portal you can manage your trip and start enrollments early and plan as early as 1 or 2 years ahead(for International trips) and have parents make periodic scheduled payments. When you travel with GO your funds are safe because all passengers (on all overnight trips) are covered with a travel insurance policy that covers you (100% for covered incidents) even if you decide to just not travel that is covered with a cancel for ANY reason coverage too. (at 75%) Booking early means your students can save on their trip too.
You can also earn more scholarships for your students by referring other colleagues and teachers.
TIP 2- Off season travel
Spring is a popular and busy school trip travel season. If you can travel during the off-season there are many benefits. Less congestion and traffic on the roads. For most of the large cities it has become a big problem and maneuvering a large motor coach around can slow the tempo of the trip. Our itineraries account for this but we highly recommend traveling in the fall or late winter and early spring. Booking during these lower demand seasons is a great way to lower school trip pricing and get to see more with your student group. Read more about it here.
Tip 3 – GO Leaders
Make sure to have a GO Leader on your next school trip. Our team of young, energetic and dynamic tour directors known as GO Leaders take you along your journey with a smile. They manage the trip so you don’t have to. They maximize your time and prepare and engage the students during the trip. GO Leaders are with you for the whole trip and are a big part of a successful class trip to any destination. Above all, their energy, enthusiasm and smile make each day a fun, educational and memorable experience while keeping you on schedule and leaving you to enjoy your trip with your students.
