EA School Tours Newsletter July 2014

The year is flying by, with the team at EA proud to be putting more schools into the air and around the globe for educational adventures!

Holidays can be a great time to plan ahead. We specialise in providing teachers with specific information to assist planning and running a successful trip. There is a lot to think about with inclusions, costs, risk management and the due diligence your school will require to get your dream trip underway. The more time you have to get prepared the easier it will be!

It's snow time in New Zealand and EA has been helping many schools enjoy their New Zealand ski trip. Fresh snow is still falling and we love seeing all the great pics popping up on our Facebook page from their personal EA rep!

This year night skiing is an option for ski trips, which is proving very popular with teachers and students.

They've also loved the jet boating on the lake, pizzas at Winnies and building snowmen!

1. Exchange rates


For anyone outside of the USA these are favourable right now. UK schools are getting good deals for US trips and Australian schools are getting great deals anywhere. We can hold package prices while you advertise. This is a great opportunity and no one knows where the exchange rates will go.

2. Fuel prices

These are predicted to increase over time. This means all modes of transport will increase thus meaning your package price may also increase as a result.

3. Flight availability

Airlines have cut back the number of flights on many routes. This has meant greater margins for the airlines as they are filling planes. For groups this means it is becoming more difficult to pre-book group space at good fares. Through planning early with teachers we are able to hold pre-release seats in order to achieve the best rates for you.

We are here to help keep everything simple, and ensure all boxes are ticked from your school's perspective, from a safety perspective, and a fun perspective! Let us do the hard work for you.
