From meeting teachers and students, presenting destination proposals and attending parent evenings, to seeing you off at the airport or providing 24/7 support while you’re away – our aim is to make your trip run smoothly. We’ll handle all facets of your booking so you can focus on what you do best – teaching!

​Check out some of the key benefits of booking school travel with Orbit Groups & Events:

​Access to Exclusive Fares

Because Orbit World Travel is an appointed Travel Management Provider for All of Government (AoG), we’re able to offer eligible schools exceptional domestic and international airfares through Air New Zealand – unbeatable in the open market.

In addition, because of Orbit’s nationwide scale as part of the House of Travel Group, our resources and buying power are the largest in the country. You’ll benefit from our strong relationships with our suppliers and get access to the best rates for flights (across all airlines), hotels, airlines, ground transport and more.

Duty of Care

Student safety and well-being when travelling is an important part of what we do. We have an extensive duty of care programme, Orbit Response, that includes security updates, risk advice, traveller location reports, robotic incident detection and alert notification. It also includes our 24/7 afterhours calling service, run by Kiwi staff in our London office.

You can be confident that no matter the time of day you contact us while travelling, you will get hold of friendly Orbit staff who know your safety is paramount.

Expense Management

The Orbit Groups & Events team can help you in the planning stages with budgeting support, funding applications and multiple quote options. We've managed trips and tours of all sizes and budgets - so rest assured that everything will run smoothly and within your school's budget.

You’ll have access to Orbit’s Chargeback services while travelling, and after debriefing post-trip, will receive a fully reconciled and consolidated invoice and access to financial reporting.
