There’s something special about the start of the school year. The students are buzzing with tales of the summer, catching up with old friends and forging new friendships. Everyone is ready to tackle a new school year. Chances are booking your school trip is not top of mind. That’s ok, we’ve got you covered!
The 5 Reasons To Book Early
1. The early bird catches the tour… they want
When you book early not only do you have more time to plan on your end, but your tour company does as well. If you have your heart set on a specific attraction, chances are greater to guarantee that selection if you book early, before everyone else.
2. More time to recruit
Booking early gives you more time: time to plan, time to budget, and most importantly, time to recruit students! On average the group size of early bookers is nearly 50% larger than late bookers. Double the group size, double the amount of fun, and double the travel experience for your students. Who wouldn’t want that?
3. Make budgeting easier
Parents work hard for their money and the school year brings its own expenses. Booking early not only gives parents more time to budget for a school trip, but also allows them to make smaller payments over a longer period of time, thus ensuring their child an experience they’ll never forget.
4. Book hotel space before it’s gone
Hotel selection is a key element to any successful trip, and having a comfortable hotel to rest and recharge your batteries is paramount. Booking early offers you peace of mind in the ideal accommodations for your trip.
5. Receive the best travel deals - Two scholarships are better than one!
All Brightspark tours come with one Scholarship per motor coach, but by booking early your school may or can qualify for an additional scholarship! A scholarship is the opportunity for a student who may not have the financial means to participate in their class trip. More additional scholarships give you the ability to help even more students and families participate in this once-in-a-lifetime experience!
Overall it’s a win-win situation for teachers, students and parents by booking your student tour early. It opens the experience up to more students, allows you more time to prepare, parents are given more time to budget, and did we mention you qualify for additional scholarships! Who wouldn’t want to reap the rewards of an early booking bonus?
