Organizing your group made simple:
We can assist you in providing your students and parents with all the information they need.
We will provide a customized flyer outlining the itinerary and trip details. You can handle sign-ups however you wish, or we can customize a website specifically for your group that will allow students to sign up and pay for their trip online! You may access the information online at any time.
We also have payment plan options for students who want to make a series of installments rather than a deposit and then one large balance. You decide the amount you wish to send each time, write your reservation number on the check, and mail it to us. Should you wish to pay by credit card, log on to your reservation via our website and post the amount you wish to pay.
