Government Travel Advice – Safe Travel
We continually monitor changes in local government advice for travel to destinations that we organise student travel to.
Monitoring this advice is part of our Safety Management System.
Before you travel we also advise that you do your own research and keep a track on government advice on the country you are traveling to. We do encourage all participants to eRegister in individual or group with MFA (Ministry of Foreign Affairs) for travelling to overseas as a safety precaution.
We offer teachers to risk assess a destination first hand, this is an investment on both our part and our ground handlers part. We understand that for some destinations and in particular those that are more far flung it is the ideal way to gain first-hand knowledge of what a destination can offer your students. Such recce trip can let teacher familiar with the places and determine the suitability of visit in order to maximise the learning objective of each trip.
