Let us create an unforgettable travel experience for you and your school.
Service Travel specialises in educational travel and overseas experiences for a number of schools throughout New Zealand.
We provide customised tours as either fully inclusive packages or as stand alone components such as separate air travel or accommodation.
We provide both managed and unmanaged packages. You get to decide whether you want a hands on tour manager to assist you and your group throughout the duration of your trip or you may prefer the services of a locally based tour guide at your destination from arrival. Alternatively you may prefer an unmanaged package. Whatever your preference, we can create a package to suit.
Educational travel is a specialist area and requires a reliable and established travel provider who understands first hand the special needs and demands this can present. Service Travel is such a provider and has carved out a reputation as a solid performer offering great value for money and flexibility.
We appreciate and understand that every school dynamic is different – as are the policies and procedures that need to be observed. We also acknowledge that every travelling school group will have varying levels of requirements. Some desire a fully managed package with accompanying tour manager and others require assistance with the flight component only.
Quite simply . . . One Size Does Not Fit All, so we offer a range of flexible options.
Here is how we can help you and your school:
- Specialist school group travel advisors
- Full travel planning assistance
- Fully inclusive packages or ‘air only’ group travel deals
- Customised travel itineraries
- Special group concessions
- Contract negotiated accommodation and coach charter rates
- Certified airline and cruise group affiliations
- Fully managed / escorted or unmanaged packages

Michael’s two great strengths during the process of planning a school cricket tour to England were his clear communication and organization. He was always available and provided a tour experience that the boys will never forget. We simply would not have been able to make the tour happen without the knowledge and dedication of Michael and his team.
