Booking Information

Thank you for considering booking your trip with Kipling Tours.  On this page you will find the details you need to make booking a trip as easy as possible.

However if you prefer at any stage to call us instead, we’d love to talk to you.

Just call us on 01935 816920

Our opening hours are: Monday-Friday 08.30am – 5.30pm 


What to do now

Get in touch, either by email or phone and tell us what you want to do.  To give you a guideline quotation we need to know:

  • When you want to travel – month and year is enough to begin with
  • How long you want to travel for
  • Roughly how many students and staff do you expect to take
  • What is the likely age range of the students

Start planning early

It’s never too soon to start planning a school trip. For any trip costing under £1000 you can organise it within a calendar year.  For anything costing more than £1000 we strongly recommend you commence the planning and promotion stages between 12 and 18 months ahead of your travel date. There are of course always going to be exceptions to this rule, but from many years experience an approach like this has the best chance of securing a sufficient number of student sign ups to make the trip happen.

What we do next

We will put together an outline itinerary and an indicative quotation.  This won’t be an exact cost because a number of variables will influence the final price, but it will give you a benchmark by which to judge if your plans are financially viable.  At this stage we can always adjust the trip in order to work towards a specific budget.

Fill in the Booking Form

Once you have decided to go ahead, we send you a booking form to complete and return to us, along with the required deposit, either by cheque or by BACS.  Normally the deposit will be 10% of the trip price for each member. We don’t currently accept card payments.
