Helping schools, universities and music groups to organise exceptional learning trips in the UK and overseas
Opening the world to lifelong learners
At Travelbound, we provide worldwide educational school trips, university tours and music and performing arts tours. We support teachers before, during and after their trips to provide peace of mind and build itineraries that meet learning objectives.
We're the learning trip specialists with years of proven experience, knowledge and passion to organise safe, enjoyable and unforgettable trips that inspire young learners to build on their experiences long after they return home.
Our tours stimulate the mind and the senses, with each new experience a chance for students to learn more about their subject, the world and their own potential. We provide inspiring, safe and reasonably priced study tours that bring lectures and classes to life in so many exciting destinations across the world. Introduce Art and Design students to the collections of Paris, take Geography students to observe the volcanic activity around the Bay of Naples or tap into the talent on Broadway, NYC, with Performing Arts students.
School Travel Expertise
With well over 30 years in educational travel, we know what it takes to organise learning trips that are unforgettable and enriching. With a team made up of specialists in their field, we share your passion for your subject. Using our on-the-ground knowledge, we ensure you get the most out of your school or university student tours. We can tailor itineraries to suit your curriculum or learning objective requirements and suggest exciting excursions you won’t want your group to miss.
Travelbound further education and school trips are designed to balance outcome-focused learning with a bit of leisure and downtime. So for instance, Classics trips to The Peloponnese include time to enjoy the sandy beaches between trips to archaeological sites. And on school music tours, we include fun excursions such as theme parks and splash pools for students to relax and let off steam between rehearsals and performances.
School Trip Safety
Rest assured, our health and safety department is the best in the business, with stringent auditing processes used for all accommodation, excursions and transport on our residential trips. We are proud to be full members of the School Travel Forum and hold the Learning Outside the Classroom Quality Badge. Although we’re a small specialist firm, we’re backed by travel giant TUI PLC, so we can offer the highest-level financial protection. And of course, we’re fully bonded by ABTA and ATOL.
All The Support You Need
We’re always on hand to assist you, from helping choose your ideal trip, to advising you on how to complete risk assessments and health and safety paperwork or helping you promote your tour. Your dedicated Tour Co-ordinator is there to discuss any queries, while schools group leaders are assigned a Regional Account Manager for support with presentations and face-to-face meetings. While you’re away, you can access a 24-hour worldwide support network, a benefit of our parent company.
