Helping schools, universities and music groups to organise the best educational trip abroad
Outstanding Educational Trips Company
At Travelbound, we provide European and 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. All the while ensuring the highest levels of safety and security are kept to give you, your students and parents peace of mind.
We're the learning trip specialists with over 30 years of proven experience, knowledge and passion for organising safe, enjoyable and unforgettable trips. We want to inspire young learners to build on their experiences long after they return home. We want them to learn to travel and travel to learn!
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. We’re fully bonded by ABTA and ATOL.
