What is the simplest way of making the overseas trip more about the country being visited than the journey?

Consider the school trip to an overseas destination.

A few days away and then…

Which is why some students tend to remember more about the travel than they do about the purpose of the trip. 

Thus anything that cuts down travel time and, indeed, anything that adds to travel comfort is a really good idea.  

It puts the emphasis fairly and squarely back on the purpose of the visit by reducing the hassle of the journey and increasing the time spent in the desired destination. 

The solution, of course, is to fly – a solution which in the past few years has become ever cheaper as airlines seek to utilise their fleets more comprehensively outside of the peak demand period of the school holidays. 

This is the area in which we specialise – finding flights that will offer you great convenience at a low cost. 

What’s more, at the German Travel Centre one person will process everything from the initial enquiry through to the production of tickets, making this a singularly smooth and stress free transaction. 

Indeed, given that it is normally possible to fly from an airport near to the school to an airport close to the final destination, such arrangements can add up to three more days spent in the desired destination. 

In short, our reservation technology enables us to give you the most up-to-date travel options, all the time. We book and issue our own tickets, enabling us to keep full control of your booking and ensure your journey meets your needs.  

Furthermore, as we are ABTA and ATOL holders you can be assured that you and your students are fully protected (as recommended by the Health and Safety Executive for schools) should the airline fail. 

Because we have so many locations to and from which we can fly, the best way to explore the possibilities is either to call one of our specialist group reservation advisors on 020 8429 2900 or email us at groups@germantravelcentre.co.uk with the details of your requirements. 

You can also go to our website for more information. 

Either way we’ll come back to you with our suggestions and prices.  You’ll be surprised how much time can be saved and how low group air fares can be.
