Helpful Planning Tips
BOOKINGS AND DEPOSITS
To confirm a quotation, a non-refundable deposit of $100 - $200 per student is required (depending on travel requirements). Deposits will be due within 4 weeks of booking accommodation, or 3 weeks where airfares are required.
TIME OF TRAVEL - CANBERRA
Canberra is very popular during Term 3, mainly due to the Snowy Mountains option that can be included for students. Remember though, if travelling to the snow is not a key driver of your school’s excursion, then there are considerable savings to be made during Term 1.
Contact us to get a list of the savings your school can make. Parliamentary sitting dates are also a key driver for schools, so if this component is a key reason for travelling to Canberra, be sure to check the dates and more importantly, accommodation availability.
All other destinations advertised are available for travel all year round.
We offer various types of accommodation—motels, cabins, bunkhouses etc—so when booking, try to have some idea of the type of accommodation that your school requires.
Also, most accommodation includes a meal package so be sure to enquire as to whether they will meet any dietary or religious requirements of students.
Have you ever wondered what would happen if a member of the school group fell sick or had an accident while away on a school excursion?
At Unearth-Ed we have negotiated an exclusive School Group Travel insurance policy with one of the top bus and coach insurance brokers in NSW and through one of Australia’s leading insurers.
For further information please contact our office.
There are no hidden extra costs. Our tours are fully inclusive and the costs are based on paying students and FOC supervisors. Tour prices may be altered at the discretion of the company due to external influences.
Be mindful of timing when sending or submitting your ‘wish list’ of attractions so that you are not disappointed if you are not able to fit everything into the duration of your stay.
Remember to also state if you are requiring ‘guided’ or ‘self-guided’ tours and ensure you book into programs at attractions that support your curriculum focus.
When planning your choice of destinations, remember to contact us should you need further details for any venues.
WHAT TO BRING
Ensure you pack accordingly—remember that each student will be responsible for their own belongings so they should be able to manage their individual luggage.
Be sure to check with our team if your accommodation supplies linen so you can advise the students if sleeping bags/towels/linen are required.
Finally, be aware of the time of travel with regards to weather conditions and pack to suit the extremes (refer to the temperature guide chart).
We can arrange whichever mode of transport you prefer, depending on your school’s location. We utilise Virgin Australia and Qantas for your flights (where possible) and various coach companies. We also offer bus or coach transport whilst in Canberra so as to meet your budget requirements.
When travelling interstate, we will always utilise seat-belted, fully air conditioned coach transport for your comfort and safety. Should your school’s excursion require flights, one baggage item of no more than 20kg can be checked-in and one carry-on bag per person is allowed – further travel details will be provided upon confirmation of your booking.
I certainly will be using your company again. I have organised many extended overnight excursions and find your operation excellent. I especially like the payment up front, this is a great option. When visiting anywhere you are not delayed in any way sorting things out.
It was fantastic. Thank you again for all of your help. We will definitely be booking with you again.
