Expert staff for all the help you need
We understand that taking a young group away is a big responsibility! We’ve fine-tuned how we help educators for over 30 years to make sure we support you every step of the way.
From advice on how to complete your health and safety paperwork, financial protection and 24-hour phone support, to promotional tools and the deals you need to bring your trip in on budget – we have the expertise to make your tour safe and successful.
More and more local education authorities and governing bodies are refusing trips with companies that do not have the appropriate accreditation.
Health and safety first
Auditing processes are used for all our accommodation, excursions and transport services.
We are a full member of the School Travel Forum (STF), externally audited each year to demonstrate good practice and safety.
Help with the paperwork
We’ll give you advice on how to complete your specific risk assessments and health and safety paperwork. This will include any required by your local authority or governing body.
We can arrange inspection visits for trip leaders in advance of your group trip. This will cover the cost of two nights’ bed and breakfast accommodation (subject to availability).
Unrivalled financial security
Travelbound offers groups the financial protection they deserve.
You’ll have direct access to 24-hour support, constantly staffed by our team of professionals.
Resources include full emergency procedures and access to senior management, along with the most up-to-date information whenever it’s needed.
We offer comprehensive travel insurance that includes £5,000,000 party leader liability insurance. It is specifically designed for student trips matching most LEAs’ requirements.
When booking a tour, you’ll be assigned a dedicated Tour Co-ordinator who is there to discuss the details of your trip. Most Travelbound staff are seasoned travellers, are fluent in more than one language and have expertise in one or more subject fields.
Learning outside the classroom
We are proud to have been awarded full accreditation for the Learning Outside the Classroom (LOtC) Quality Badge scheme, demonstrating that we:
- Help our teachers to plan the learning experience effectively.
- Provide accurate information about our tours.
- Provide activities, experience or resources which meet learner needs.

- Have a safety management process in place to manage risk effectively.
Promoting your tour
