European Study tours was established in 1982 and since then we have become one of the leading educational tour operators specialising in tailor-made travel and subject specific conferences for students. Group leaders return to travel with us year after year because of the exceptional level of service we offer them.
European Study Tours are part of the Education Division of Holidaybreak, the education and activity travel group. Holidaybreak is owned by Cox & Kings Limited which is one of the oldest and most recognised travel operators in the world.
In the following pages you will find a selection of our most popular destinations for tailor-made tours. However, if you cannot find what you are looking for, give us a call and ask for a quotation, as we can operate tours to other destinations throughout Europe and worldwide. Our student conference packages can also be adapted to suit the needs of your group.
Our well travelled staff are chosen for their experience, knowledge, efficiency and language skills to enable us to provide you with the best possible service, advice and information. Meet the staff.
One of our most important responsibilities as an educational tour operator is ensuring the safety of our groups:
We are a Member of ABTA which means you have the benefit of ABTA's assistance and Code of Conduct. Many of the travel arrangements that we sell are protected in case of the financial failure of the travel company. Please ask us about the protection that applies to your booking.
All the flights and flight-inclusive holidays on this website are financially protected by the ATOL scheme. When you pay you will be supplied with an ATOL Certificate. Please ask for it and check to ensure that everything you booked (flights, hotels and other services) is listed on it. Please see our booking conditions for further information or for more on financial protection and the ATOL Certificate, please visit the Civil Aviation Authority website.
In line with DfES guidelines and after consulting with RoSPA (The Royal Society of Prevention of Accidents) we have developed a Safety Management System, which helps ensure elements of your tour remain of a high standard.
The Safety Management System covers the following elements of your tour:
• 24 Hour Emergency
