Book with Confidence


Since March 2020, students have sadly missed out on the opportunities and benefits of international school trips.

Select School Travel are more determined than ever to work with our party leaders and suppliers to ensure that students can look forward to enjoying these opportunities once again.

We understand that schools require greater reassurance and flexibility as part of a comprehensive programme, that offers added booking protection and further support, as well as promoting a safe environment for students and staff.

Bookings with Select, will continue to have financial protection through ABTA & ATOL, ensuring 100% financial security on all monies paid to us.

Additionally, we have now put in place a market-leading travel insurance policy, which provides the individual and school with ‘Covid-19 Cover’, both pre-departure as well as during the trip.

Our Benchmark

Select will continue to adhere to all official guidance implemented by the Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office (FCDO) and will follow the criteria set out by the UK Package Directive 2018.

Further Guidance issued by the School Travel Forum (STF) will be adhered to and audited regularly to maintain and constantly improve our health and safety protocols.

All domestic and overseas partners, including accommodation providers will be required to comply with local and national public health regulations.
