Safety and Security

Safety is always our top priority.

Scholastica takes extensive efforts to ensure the safety of our travelers and the peace of mind for all involved.

24- Hour Emergency Assistance

Scholastica Travel is pleased to offer you 24-hour emergency assistance.  You will be comforted to know that you can receive the assistance of a real person any time – day or night. Simply call 800- 245-3511 and follow the directions. Our emergency assistance team will respond within a short time to offer assistance.

Tour Coordinator

Scholastica’s tour leaders are more than guides; they are on-site tour coordinators. Your tour leader will accompany the group for the tour duration, staying at the same hotel and often traveling with the group to and from their point of origin. Should an urgent situation arise, the tour leader is right there to handle it.  In an unfamiliar place, the presence of a knowledgeable tour leader can make all the difference.

Nighttime Supervision

Scholastica hires nighttime supervision to patrol the hallways from late evening to early morning for the safety and security of the students. Everyone, whether at home or on tour, can rest peacefully knowing that an adult will be supervising the students from the time they leave their school until the time they return home. Group leaders and chaperones can begin each tour day with a full night of rest, ready to explore.

Student Safe Hotels

Scholastica diligently selects hotels,  considering all aspects pertaining to the safety and  comfort of our travelers. Rooms are always requested to be non-smoking, on the second floor or higher, and without outdoor access.

Name Tag Lanyards with Emergency Contact Information

Name Tag LanyardsScholastica provides lanyards for every student on a school trip. The lanyards have a name tag attached. On the back of the name tag is contact information for Scholastica’s 24-hour emergency assistance team and space to write chaperone contact information. Students are to wear these lanyards while on tour so that they are never without emergency assistance information.
