The small print in the literature of many student tour operators all too often conceals provisos, clauses and contingencies of which a group leader will be unaware at the time of booking.

Don't be fooled - when we read competitors' brochures and calculate the costs of their supplements, extras, lunches, admission fees etc, it is clear that their low lead-in prices are only the beginning. The hidden extras can add up to over £50 per person and the real cost to pupils becomes expensive and uncompetitive.
