About Us

Who can forget their first student trip?

From the breathless sight of the Sistine Chapel’s ceiling to the achievement of haggling at a local French market – Travelbound brings that unforgettable first-trip feeling to every one of our educational tours.

With more than 30 years of experience, we provide safe, high-quality tours that support classroom learning, and help teachers and group leaders tackle the practicalities of taking a student group away.

Whether you want to inspire classics students with the relics of ancient Rome, or take budding performers to the bright lights of Broadway, you’ll find a wide range of subject-focused trips across an array of worldwide destinations.

Safe and reliable

The health and safety of your students is our highest priority, and auditing processes are used for all our accommodation, excursions and transport services.

We’re proud to have been awarded full accreditation for the Learning Outside the Classroom (LOtC) Quality Badge scheme, are a full member of the School Travel Forum (STF), and are fully bonded by ABTA.
