Equity is a preferred partner of British Airways and we are therefore able to offer you some of the lowest group fares available with a scheduled carrier. With British Airways you are able to enjoy the convenience of frequent schedules and centrally located airports.
British Airways fly from many cities throughout the UK to London on their domestic routes, allowing the possibility of onward connections to European and Worldwide destinations at economical fares.
Low Cost Airlines
The low cost airlines have revolutionised travel to many destinations. They operate from airports all over the UK, so in many cases there is no need to travel to London. However, to take advantage of really low fares you do need to book early.
We obtain the best scheduled airline rates available. For your tours we use British Airways, Virgin Atlantic, Continental Airlines, Air France, Lufthansa, KLM, Finnair, Emirates to name a few.
Travel by coach is still a popular way for many groups to get to cities such as Paris, Amsterdam and Brussels. Plus, today's modern coaches are more than suitable for destinations further a field, such as Barcelona & Berlin. The big advantage of coach travel for many is the fact that you are picked up from your university or college, taken to your destination and use the coach for excursions at no added cost to your students.
Many of our groups travel from Dover to Calais with P&O or Folkestone to Calais with Eurotunnel. But, if you are travelling from the North or the Midlands we have very competitive fares from Hull or Newcastle.
With the speed of the Eurostar it's the ideal method of transport for reaching your destination quickly. We negotiate very competitive rates for groups.
The Package Travel, Package Holidays and Package Tours Regulations 1992 require us to provide security for the monies that you pay for the tours booked with us. We provide this security by way of a bond held by the Civil Aviation Authority under ATOL number 2680. We are in addition a member of ABTA, number V5376.
This means that in respect of all arrangements including flights, in the unlikely event of our insolvency, the CAA will ensure that you are not left stranded abroad or will arrange to refund any money you have paid to us for an advance booking. Please note, the ATOL protection scheme only applies to arrangements which include flights arranged by us where the person who pays for the booking is present in the UK when the booking is made or the first leg of any flight we arrange for you commences in the UK. For further information, visit the ATOL website at www.atol.org.uk. The price of our flight inclusive arrangements includes the amount of £2.50 per person as part of the ATOL Protection Contribution (APC) we pay to the CAA. This charge is included in our advertised prices.
We are also a member of the Association of British Travel Agents (ABTA number V5376). If your holiday does not include flights, ABTA will financially protect your holiday in the same way. If you book your tour with an operator who is not bonded, your students money is at risk and repatriation could be at your own cost.
