Our Transport Solution

Experience Education entrusted us, as a leading provider of educational travel services, with the responsibility of facilitating seamless journeys for their clients across Europe. Our dedicated account manager collaborated closely with Experience Education on a daily basis to coordinate tours and airport transfers, supported by our efficient administration and operations team. Regular checks were conducted to ensure compliance with operational and driving hour regulations, guaranteeing smooth departures and arrivals.

In managing contracts of this magnitude, we maintained close communication with our partner operators to ensure alignment with the client's specific requirements. Catering to schools of varying sizes, our services encompassed a range of vehicle types, from minibuses to high-capacity coaches. As a standard practice, our 24/7 operational team remained on standby to provide assistance whenever needed. Experience Education received comprehensive monthly Management Information (MI) data, detailing key metrics empowering them with valuable insights to optimise their operations.

This collaborative endeavour exemplifies our commitment to delivering reliable and tailored transport solutions, fostering unforgettable educational experiences for students and travellers alike.
