About Us

Expertise, passion, professionalism and support

Who can forget their first educational trip? That breathless sight of the Sistine Chapel’s ceiling, or the sense of achievement from shopping in French at a local market?

We want to bring that ‘first-trip feeling’ to every one of our tours. Which is why we organise tours that inspire and motivate students to a lifetime of learning!

We’re a team of educationalists AND travellers. We love to learn from other cultures and bring that learning into what we do day-to-day in our Brighton-based office.

We have 30 years’ experience supplying safe, high-quality, competitively-priced tours that support classroom learning. We’re here to make it as easy as possible for Group Leaders, because we’ve been there ourselves!

Experts with passion!

We share your passion for your subject. Most Travelbound staff are experts in one or more subject fields, fluent in more than one language, and are experienced travellers.

All our itineraries are designed to support your curriculum, so every part of your tour is relevant and engaging for students.

We also include the fun! We make sure sure there are plenty of leisure activities mixed with study-focused excursions. So music students will remember speeding down the flumes in a water park the day after they gave their finest performance in a prestigious cathedral.
