We are Australian owned and focused
As an Australian-based and owned company, we have been and continue to develop our programs to align with the Australian curriculum (topics, key learning areas and outcomes).
We provide personalised service and tailor our tours to your school’s needs as we understand the Australian perspective.
We focus on Educational Study Tours
We continue to expand our programs into new regions and countries. We are not trying to wedge your group into the normal retail holiday tours. We are specialist in educational tours for Australian school students.
We have the experience
Our Team members bring a vast and diverse experience in the Travel and Educational fields. Our tours are carefully designed to bring the learning experience to life. We take the pressure off you.
We think differently
We think outside the box and have different ways to maximise the chances of your tour getting off the ground. Do talk to us even if you do not have the minimum number of students required for a group.
At TETC, we plan tours from the first moment you land to create engaging, fun, relevant and educational experiences for your students. You can have optional classes with fully qualified teachers which can incorporate your excursions (Outdoor Classrooms). We have done the research to create study notes for some excursions (Lessons on the Move). We look for relevant excursions for your subject, not just the usual tourist haunts.
The price quoted for your trip is based on the expected number of paying participants at the time of booking. If take-up numbers fall below the minimum requirement, the price of your trip may increase.
Please refer to our Booking Terms & Conditions.
Factors that affect the cost of your tour
School organisers are often surprised that the costs of tours are steadily increasing each year. There are unavoidable increases that can affect your budget, especially if you have based your forward estimate on a past tour quote that may be 2-3 years old. Here are the top 3 factors that affect the costs of your tour:
Exchange rates – the Australian Dollar can fluctuate significantly due to world events and political situations.
International Tourist Demands – every season the number of international travellers grows: it has doubled from 669mil to 1.235bil from 2000 to 2012 and continues to grow, so your group needs to book as far in advance as possible.
Why are airfares not included in the quote?
Teachers/organisers are entitled to cost visibility and clarity. To that end, TETC provides a cost for the land content alone.
We give you the option to shop around for flights and source airfares from your local retail agent. We can also provide flights to match your tour requirements with the best value and least travel disruption.
The choice is yours!
Baggage Allowance on airlines
Remember that an international flight includes one 20kg checked luggage item per person (except for music bands which usually have extra allowance for musical instruments). Please check your quotation carefully. Any additional luggage is charged by the airline at check in.
TETC is fully insured with QBE Business Insurance including cover for money paid by our clients. A Certificate of Currency can be obtained from QBE at any time. School payments are received directly into our Trust Account.
School groups must have travel insurance and if your school insurance does not cover your group, we can provide Group Travel Cover through QBE-NIB travel insurance.
We design quality Educational Tours which are delivered to Schools using a combination of services from Australian and overseas travel agents, Inbound Operators and airlines partners, all of them licensed and long established in their respective fields of expertise.
