Frequently Asked Questions

We have adapted our booking conditions to meet the evolving situation caused by COVID-19 and its impact on a global scale. Our flexibility allows Group Leaders, their schools and students to receive a full refund for their booking due to advice from the Department for Education, the FCDO, or local and national government restrictions.  

The International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) – the UN body responsible for aviation – has set out comprehensive recommendations for airlines and airports, intended to minimise infection risks at every stage of the journey. From check-in to baggage collection, airlines will be focused on encouraging passengers to maintain distancing wherever possible while there will also be enhanced and frequent deep cleaning of the cabin itself as stated by the International Air Transport Association (Iata).

As with all our accommodation options, stringent health and safety conditions must be met by our chosen partners. Many of our preferred accommodation options have sought and implemented strategies to increase the frequency of cleaning while limiting the day-to-day impact on schools and students.

As Group Leader, you will have 24/7 phone support with a member of our Travelbound team while you are away. Steps are in place which will guide Group Leaders should a member of the group becomes unwell while away. 

Booking with Travelbound means you are financially protected with the backing of Travelopia – the world’s largest collection of specialist travel companies. With all tours protected by ABTA and ATOL, our team of school travel specialists will be able to work with groups to return to the UK safely.
