We prefer to be completely transparent in regards to this. The truth is, sadly nothing is free, and if travel companies quote “Teachers Travel Free,” it means that they have simply added the teacher’s costs on top of the student price. This is perfectly fine of course (for most), but as mentioned, we prefer to be as honest as possible in this regard. It is completely up to each school if they would prefer the teacher’s cost to be included or not (and it often comes down to whom is funding the program, the school or parents).
We do not make any profit on faculty costs. We simply quote the fixed costs such as the teacher’s additional accommodation and flight costs etc. We fully respect that teachers are part of the working team on trip (that they are not on a holiday), and thus we don’t charge extra for them being here with us.
