Advance Booking

Planning an International Tour? Often planning a far-off trip can be almost as fun as taking it… Booking in advance allows you a greater selection options in your itinerary and the possibility of better prices.

It is also extremely important to allow enough time to submit paperwork to the Department of Education, formulate a payment plan and obtain/provide all required information & documents including passports and visa’s. 

So when it comes to booking early - the old rule of thumb… it is never too early to start planning!

If you don’t know, ask!

Ideas for promoting & fundraising your excursion within your school community

We understand the value and importance of a high student attendance rate for tours. In order to achieve this, there are a few things a school or teacher can do!

The first important step to take is be prepared.

If you haven’t already done so, lodge an enquiry through our website and take the first step to planning your tour. Our experienced Enquiry Coordinators will tailor a quote specific to your schools needs.

Make sure your principal approves your tour and put the dates straight into your school calendar.

Having strong knowledge about how your tour is going to be beneficial when approaching your principal, creating letters to parents and getting your students pumped about the upcoming tour!

Below are some great ideas that can assist you in getting your tour off the ground!

   -   Discuss the tour itinerary at staff and P&C meetings.

   -   Write and distribute a letter to parents outlining the tour benefits (ie outcomes), the type of activities, cost, fundraising opportunities etc.

   -   Start fundraising activities to support the tour (students individual fundraising or group fundraising)

   -   Organise a payment plan scheme so that families can pay weekly or monthly amounts towards their child’s tour

   -   Display photographs or video footage of previous years’ tours.

   -   Encourage students and parents to access our website www.awaywegotours.com.au and use the many links and resources.

   -   Make a classroom display of any promotional material (eg brochures etc) that we send to you.
