Absolute Travel and Tours
With a wealth of specialist experience, our friendly team has been helping school groups to enjoy the very best sports tours, ski trips, educational trips and special interest tours at outstanding value for money, for nearly 30 years. Despite the growth and diversification of our business since those early days, we continue to deliver an unsurpassed personal service, treating each school as an individual rather than as a number. It’s about valuing relationships and exceeding expectations.
A family owned, independent company, our collective goal is to make the whole process of organising and running a trip as carefree as possible and our team is always on hand to help. We understand our products and customers alike. We facilitate inspection trips to give you the chance to experience a destination before you travel and help you with planning and risk assessment documentation in advance. For your total peace of mind, we’re members of ABTA and hold the prestigious LOTC Quality Badge. And while our experience and longevity mean your tour will always be in the safest possible hands, you have the assurance that all the monies you pay to us are fully protected via ABTA (for coach tours), or ATOL (for flight tour packages).
With a long history of working with high level sports teams, we are understandably proud of our outstanding reputation in this sector. Our annual school sports festivals in Spain, Holland and Italy combine coaching, competition and culture while tailor-made tours are uniquely designed to meet your budget and aspirations.
Our ski trip programme continues to expand with some wonderful destinations in Austria, Italy, Spain, Andorra, Canada and the USA. All our resorts are carefully hand-picked for schools with some real hidden gems at brilliant value for money.
New York city has quickly become our most popular study trip destination and our knowledge and relationships in the Big Apple make this an especially great choice for history, politics, economics, media, art and performing arts groups. Of course, Barcelona, Paris, Rome, Geneva and Washington DC continue to offer stimulating and exciting programmes to satisfy all ages and learning objectives too.
We’re proud that so many of our school group customers come from repeaters and referrals and thrilled when new groups choose to travel with us based on price sensitivity or personal service. What’s more, schools can benefit from multi-trip discounts and additional benefits when they book more than one trip in a year, whatever the discipline or destination. But above all, we share your passion for sport, ski, education and travel which means a better, safer, more rewarding experience for you and your students.
