Venture Abroad Representatives
For the majority of the destinations featured in the brochure, the services of Venture Abroad representatives are included in the tour price. The representative will be on hand throughout your stay to help the tour run as smoothly as possible. All representatives are CRB checked and can provide as much or as little assistance as required.
Fundraising for your Trip
Fundraising is an essential part of planning a tour for many groups and can be a great team building exercise, not only helping the group to bond before travelling abroad together but also giving members a sense of achievement by knowing that they have contributed towards the holiday of a lifetime. It is also very beneficial if you are looking to apply for grants as it shows that you are being pro-active in supporting the funding for the tour.
Why not spend an evening letting the group suggest their own ideas for fundraising? Ideas could include washing cars, a jumble sale or even supermarket bag packing. It is important to note that all parents and guardians are both aware of and consent to the fundraising events and that all legal implications, such as insurance and the necessary licences, are in place.
