An overnight trip often provides students their first true taste of independence—a chance to be away from home in a carefree setting. It can be a real eye-opener, a monumental event in a young person’s life.
But these adventures don’t just happen—even a short getaway involves considerable legwork, as tour planners know. Anyone organizing a youth trip will find tons of practical tips in the 2013 edition of Student Travel Planning Guide. Written by educators, the comprehensive 52-page guide is published by Premier Tourism Marketing, parent company of Leisure Group Travel.
