School trip destination advice for your group

With NST, you’ll get your own dedicated Educational Tour Co-ordinator who’ll use their unrivalled destination knowledge and experience to create an itinerary that’s tailor-made, perfectly timed and meets your exact school travel needs. 

First-hand, insider school trip knowledge

Members of our team regularly travel to key destinations to really get to know the ins-and-outs of the local area, from logistics and visits to accommodation. 

Teachers are always keen to share their experiences with us upon returning from their educational tour too. We use their feedback, in addition to our insider knowledge, to help you shape your ideal trip. 

How this benefits you and your students 

By chatting to one of our Educational Tour Co-ordinators, you’ll have access to a wealth of knowledge and experience. Not only will they be able to answer your questions, they might even suggest options you hadn’t already thought of. They’ll be able to tell you what other teachers have chosen to do on tour and give you an insight into the feedback they’ve given us too. 

Your tour itinerary will be well-informed, objective-focussed and budget-friendly so that your students will get the most out of their time away - without breaking the bank.

The complete school trip planning service

Your dedicated point of contact at NST will be a tour planning expert too, experienced and knowledgeable in every aspect of creating a school trip from scratch and getting your tour off the ground. Your Educational Tour Co-ordinator can advise on every aspect of the planning process, from gaining approval and promoting your tour to students and parents, to collecting deposits, advising you on risk assessments, and assisting with medical, passport and visa issues too.
