Travel Notes

Who needs a travel planner?

Mar 30, 2022

Every year, we meet student groups who swear they’ll never travel again.
Their stories are almost always the same:

There were just too many logistics.

We spent more than the trip was worth.

Our plans changed and we lost so much money.

Planning this trip was like a full-time job.


And we understand their frustrations. No one wants to go through months of planning for a trip that doesn’t measure up.

When Bob Rogers started BRT back in 1981, he’d been an educator for ten years and understood that teachers and their students had very specific travel needs. So, he set out to meet those unique needs and serve groups in a brand new way – one that would allow educators to focus on their students, not the travel logistics. Forty years later, we’re still giving teachers and their students worry-free travel experiences in amazing destinations. Here’s how:

We handle everything.

Whether your program is just getting off the ground or you’re rolling 200 students deep, we take care of every aspect of your travel experience from the day you pick your destination, to the moment your students return home. Transportation, accommodations, dining, attractions and performances are just the basics – we handle every last detail of your group’s experience so you don’t have to.

We keep you protected.

The groups we work with feel confident to travel the world with us, in large part due to the three-fold protection we offer. Our BRT Cares Program keeps students safe on the road, our Trip Assurance Program protects every group’s financial investment and the additional Trip Insurance we offer provides extra protection for groups who need it. 

We’re with you every step of the way.

There are a lot of travel planners out there – but few who will literally be with you every step of your journey. From our dedicated tour directors on the ground, to overnight security in hotels, to our office staff who are prepared for any and everything, you’re never traveling or planning on your own.

So who needs a travel planner? Everyone 🙂 Because everyone deserves to have an incredible travel experience with the right planning and support to make it seamless. Let’s talk about the travel possibilities for your group today.
