Transport And Accommodation

Coach

We book coach travel with a range of approved coach operators from across the country, negotiating on your behalf to get the best rates possible for your study trip or study tour in the UK or abroad. We use only executive coaches, equipped with air-conditioning and TV and DVD player, ensuring a greater standard of comfort on your travels.

If there is a particular coach operator you would like to use, perhaps a local company, please let us know and we will do our best to accommodate your request, within the realms of safety. Please note that this may incur an additional cost, as we would not have the preferential rates as with our usual operators.

All our coach companies are monitored on safety under our Safety Commitment Policy

Air

We book your air tour with a variety of airlines, from a number of regional airports. So that you know the real price up front, any quote based on a low-cost airline will include hand luggage, all taxes and charges and one piece of baggage for each passenger if requested.

When booking with an ATOL operator like FHT Group Tours, unlike when booking direct, your money is protected. Particularly with low-cost airlines, there is a great benefit in having the security of Further & Higher Travel and our emergency assistance number to help you in case of delayed or cancelled flights.

Ferry and Eurotunnel

Whether you want to travel Dover to Calais or take a longer sailing from Hull to Rotterdam or Newcastle to Amsterdam, we can help, booking with a number of trusted travel operators at the best prices.

Why not try Eurotunnel for a high speed connection? Journey time from Folkestone to Calais is just 35 minutes, leaving you with more time for excursions at your destination.

All our tours will be based on ferry – please contact us for a quotation with Eurotunnel, this may be at an additional cost at certain times of the year.

Train and Eurostar

Particularly useful for smaller groups, we can offer rail connections for many city destinations within the UK and farther afield.

Eurostar is now the fastest route to Paris and the continent for many groups, with journey times from London just 2 hours 15 minutes, and Brussels less than 2 hours away.

Travelling by train also helps to minimise your carbon footprint on your student trip away.

Accommodation

Whether you’re booking a budget hostel in Manhattan or a 4* hotel in Barcelona, you can rest assured that we will choose the very best student friendly accommodation available for students to get the best value for money on an educational trip in the UK or abroad.

Our accommodations are chosen for their experience with students, friendly staff, convenient locations and useful facilities. In these fantastic city destinations, you won’t be spending a lot of time in your room, but with our experience we’ll guide you through the options to choose somewhere that’s appropriate for your group needs. Students are usually in multi-bedded rooms to keep costs down, but if you feel that twins are more suitable, for mature students, for example, just let us know. Accompanying adults are all allocated single rooms, subject to availability from suppliers.

All our accommodations are audited in line with our safety commitment policy, so you can be sure that you and your students’ safety is taken care of whenever we send you away on an educational trip in the UK, Europe or Worldwide.
