Financial protection for school trips

School tours value all the way

You’ll have financial protection from the moment you book your school trip to your safe return with NST because we are fully protected through ABTA and ATOL, and are licensed by IATA too.

Booking with a school travel company is the best way for you to protect parents’ money and give yourself peace of mind. Don’t forget – if you book your educational tour direct with the airline, you may not be covered.


NST is a fully protected member of the Association of British Travel Agents, the UK’s biggest travel trade association. Our membership number is ABTA V0550, and you can check our membership details by visiting ABTA.


The Civil Aviation Authority says: “It is important for schools to appreciate the protection they have under ATOL and ensure that they insist on ATOL protection every time they book.”

NST is licensed by the Civil Aviation Authority under Air Travel Organisers’ Licensing (ATOL), the protection scheme for air holidays and flights. Our license number is 3606 and you can check our details by visiting ATOL.


NST is licensed by the International Air Transport Association (IATA), an international trade body created over 60 years ago by a group of airlines. IATA represents, leads and serves the airline industry in general and has developed the commercial standards that built this global industry.
