Financial Security

Financial protection for school travel

You'll have financial protection from the moment you book your school tour to your safe return with NST because we are fully bonded through through the Commission for Aviation Regulation, ABTA and ATOL, and are licensed by IATA too.

Booking with a school travel company is the best way for you to protect parents’ money and give yourself peace of mind. Don’t forget – if you book your school travel direct with the airline, you may not be covered.
