Statement on Paris Terrorist Incident
Equity would like to express our deepest sympathy and condolences to those affected by the shocking events in Paris on Friday night.
We are liaising with the Foreign Office and the French authorities to keep abreast of any restrictions which may impact on tours scheduled to depart for France in the near future.
Our team is also in close contact with any clients who may be affected by travel restrictions to keep them informed of developments.
Our 24 hr emergency helpline is in your travel documentation. This is for groups on tour and emergency use only. For other queries please call our office number, we will endeavour to answer any queries our clients may have as accurately as possible using the most up to date information available to us.
Who are we?
At Equity we are specialists who will work with you to deliver great learning experiences outside of the classroom for young people that inspire them back at school and in everyday life.
In 2014 we rebranded merging Equity with our sisters companies: School Travel Service (STS), Pavilion Tours, UK Connection and SkiPlan. With over 82 years’ experience, our rebrand was more than just a new logo, it was a commitment to ‘enhance the lives of young people through experiences that inspire’.
We are specialists in taking young people around the world for educational tours, music and performing arts experiences, ski trips and sports tours and we’ve been doing it for a really long time. That is why we are the best at what we do.
We have been providing groups with inspiring school trips for over 80 years, and learning is at the heart of our company. Every tour that is developed has this aspect as the core focus, but keeping that in mind, the fun never ends.
We work hard to know all about your chosen destination so we can provide you with all the little details you might not think about on your school trip. Just like we work hard to understand your subject so we can recommend excursions and activities to enhance your trip so students get a learning experience out of all your adventures, whether they know it or not!
Across the World
Where in the world do you want to travel on your school trip? We will make it happen. With learning opportunities in the farthest reaches of the globe let us help you create the perfect itinerary close to home or a long plane ride away.
We will create a special school trip experience for any subject. Whether you need to organise a school tour to cater to your History, Classics, Dance, Drama, Science, or Art & Design students, we can create the ideal programme for them.
