Eight Good Reasons

Eight Good Reasons to book with the STC

We offer practical advice and assistance from start to finish, based on both independent and expedition travel in over 50 countries worldwide, with extensive experience of arranging trips in many more. Tell us what you want to arrange and let us do the work for you.

Tour operator search service

One of our most important roles. Through our knowledge of the industry we will find you the most appropriate tour operator or expedition provider for your requirements. We only deal with the best in the business - companies recognised as leaders in their field who have proven track records.

Bringing the destination to life

We specialise in helping create imaginative, tailor-made itineraries that enable you to get "under the skin" of your destination. Itineraries that bring a destination to life, inspiring, challenging and developing young people's understanding of our natural and human world. Where project work is included, it is highly rewarding for participants but, more importantly, highly beneficial to locals.

Comprehensive proposals and assisted trip launches

Comprehensive proposals including the reasons behind our recommendations, details of the tour operator's experience and expertise, the itinerary, inclusions and exclusions, pre-departure information and details of how to proceed are always provided. We will also create an A4 summary of the trip to help the launch to pupils and parents. We can also, often along with the tour operator, come to your school to give a presentation if required.

Free booking management services

If you decide to make a booking, then our service to you doesn't stop there. We are your first point of contact from start to finish, and will work on your behalf right up until you depart to make sure that all pre-departure considerations, planning and documentation have been covered and are correct.

50:50 Carbon Offsetting Scheme & Responsible Tourism

We will go halves with you on offsetting the carbon emissions from your flights. You can also be confident that any trip arranged through us will minimise your impact on the environment and culture of your destination, while at the same time maximizing the positive economic benefits.

Outstanding customer service

We provide a first class customer service from friendly, knowledgeable staff. We will respond to all emails within a maximum of 24 hours and will keep you informed of the progress of your enquiry or booking at every stage. There is no excuse for poor customer service.

140 countries, 7 continents, a world of possibilities

We help arrange a wide variety of tours (geography, biology, history, archaeology, cultural, religious studies, language and music), link-school visits, expeditions and community and conservation based project work.

We can cater for schools and colleges from aged 10, scout and guide groups, charity challenge events, overseas corporate team-building and personal/family holidays (small group adventures and tailor-made).
