Travel 101 is a comprehensive guide and step by step blueprint for planning and executing a safe and successful experience for your students. The book covers a wide spectrum of travel related topics and is a valuable resource for either the novice or experienced group planner. Why travel? What are the benefits of a travel program? You’ll get the answers to these and other questions as well as advice and guidance on: Getting Started, Applying for major events i.e. Pasadena Tournament of Roses Parade and Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, Choosing a Travel Company, Creating a Budget, Planning Your Itinerary, Making Transportation Choices i.e. Bus, Commercial or Charter Air, Fundraising, Managing Student Accounts, Safety and Security, Travel Do’s and Don’ts, Liability Issues, Chaperones, Medical Concerns, Student Supervision, Dealing with Uniforms and Equipment, Public Relations, Meetings and Methods of Communication, Rooming Assignments, Packing Guidelines, Preparing for Your Performance, and Managing the Trip to name just a few. In addition I have included a resources section in the back of the book with links to various travel and event websites, a major events list, information on several travel associations and several sample forms and letters you can adapt for your own use.
