Top tips from Equity to help bring your trip price down
We understand that price can impact the number of students able to join a trip at your school, so therefore we are happy to work with you to develop an itinerary that fits within your budget. We have put together some top tips for you to consider when booking for your next school trip.
Low Season Travel Dates
These change per destination but can dramatically reduce the price. Consider travelling out of season and avoid local holidays such as Bastille day in Paris.
Maximize your group size
If you aim to get your total number of places up to 49 (including free places), this will keep your costs down due to the reductions of costs for buses. Equity can provide you wih promotional resources to attract interest in the trip!
Travel by coach
Travelling by coach (European resorts only) is more reasonable than air, so you can bring prices down and therefore, decrease the cost of your trip.
If you are doing activities that will require local transport, consider staying in the suburbs as opposed to city centres as this can reduce costs. Try to base adults in twins/triples and avoid singles. Bed-share for students in the US is the norm and halves the hotel bill. Balance the standard with your budget/itinerary. If most of the time is spent elsewhere, is an expensive high star rated hotel necessary?
