We can arrange your group flights to suit any itinerary, even if you’re visiting Melbourne & Sovereign Hill or exploring Sydney before or after you visit Canberra. School-group flights have flexible booking conditions compared to booking flights on the internet (where full payment is required online at the time of booking and any changes at any time incur a fee). Special school-group flight conditions vary between airlines, but as a general guideline they include:
– A minimal non-refundable, per-person deposit with balance payable closer to departure date.
– Name changes permitted up until 48 hours prior to departure.
We’ll source quotes from different airlines to compare departure airports, days, times & fare prices. Flight quotes generally remain valid for 10 days.
Choose your preferred flights and pay the small, per-person, non-refundable deposit. We will advise you of the date by which this needs to be paid so we can secure your flights with your chosen airline.
We monitor your payment schedules making sure that you’re aware of due dates for payment & name lists so that you don’t risk flights being cancelled.
We understand that occasionally a student may need to split-away from the main group for the return journey if meeting up with family and extending their stay. We can amend group flights to suit these arrangements (conditions apply).
If your excursion includes an air or sea travel component (ie flights or Spirit of Tasmania passage) we recommend that all participants take out appropriate travel insurance.
