Soft Luggage:

If you need to buy luggage look for the soft bag,wheeled versions with pull-out handles. Look for wide, sturdy rollers with plenty of ground clearance. Check they're securely fastened to the frame of the bag, and that the bag is stable when sitting upright.

Handles with two horizontal bars are better than one, and ensure that the mechanism slides freely and doesn't feel flimsy in the shop – it won't be any better out in the real world.

Confirm that the handle sits at an appropriate height for the length of your arms.

These types of bags are easier to transport on flat surfaces, which makes it much easier to stack under the coach with a large group on tour and if you are a music group you will need to also carry your music instruments.  If you wish to have these added to your tour please let me know.

Assistance:
Your group will be looked after from start to finish personally.  While you are on tour, you will have assistance from our local expert operators as well as 24-hour phone support from us back home if needed.

Parents Contact:
Some school like parents travelling that helps lowing the over all costs. But some don't parents/other family members can hire a car and sometimes put them in another hotel away from the group. – If there is any question, please ask your school teacher.
Travel Insurance:
It is recommended that the entire group has insurance, however if you do your own, please let me know.
It is important that groups are insured on one policy, so that if there is an emergency, the group leader can make one phone call to the insurance company.  Put insurance in place as soon as tour deposits are paid for . Earlier protection the better.
