Educational travel blog
July 21, 2016
In case you haven’t caught up on our recent blog, here’s a quick summary about why educational travel services are necessary for teachers traveling abroad with their students:
However, there are tons of other student travel companies offering similar services, so what sets Passports apart?
Passports offers the perfect balance of quality and price. We’re the least expensive of the quality student travel companies but we offer the same preferential flight routings, 3- or 4-star centrally located hotels and authentic meals at local restaurants as they do. We provide the same or better quality tours, with more inclusions, all for hundreds of dollars less. We’re a bit more expensive than the budget companies, but we don’t believe that fewer sightseeing excursions during the day and eating chicken fingers for dinner after a long bus ride back to the hotel the right way to fully immerse in the culture.
Passports is fully American-owned and we pride ourselves on our customer service. When you call passports, you’re not going to get an automated machine. You’ll talk with a tour adviser that will get to know you by name and remember how much you loved that restaurant in Paris the next time you travel to France. You’ll get the chance to join passports employees and other traveling teachers on a free trip overseas at one of our International Teacher Conventions. (This year we’re going to Rome!) The conventions are just our way of saying thank you and welcoming you into the passports family.
We’re less expensive than ACIS/Worldstrides while maintaining the same quality. Our high standards result in higher priced tours than EF/Explorica but you get so much more. We stay true to our commitment to provide teachers and their students with the trip of a lifetime.
