Five Steps to Take When Planning an Educational Class Travel Experience
1. Find out if there is any interest within the school.
Are there any students interested? Probably! Take a school wide poll!
2. Start a fundraiser.
After figuring out if there IS interest, the planning begins! Fundraisers can be the best way to cut costs for the participants. It is also important to market for the trip. ETC provides you marketing materials for students and parents!
3. Find a reputable student travel agency.
A reputable travel agent is the most important factor while traveling with students. ETC provides a 5 million dollar umbrella insurance policy that cover almost any mishaps that happen on the trip. We also provide an app that allows you to track every student while on the trip, this app also allows you to communicate with one student or the whole group. Parents can also follow from home! Safety is very important. Also, experience is something to look at. ETC has been specializing in student travel for over 30 years. We are a small company and take the time to get to know our clients wants and needs.
4. Customize your trip experience.
Customization is extremely important for student trips. If you are new to traveling we can suggest additional attractions that you might want to experience.
