School Language Trips to The Opal Coast
The perfect stepping stone for first-time tourers
A school French trip to the Opal Coast is a beautiful introduction to the enchantments of France. Its youthful, easy-going vibes and close proximity to the UK make it ideal for younger groups, offering plenty of lesser-known opportunities for students to speak the local language.
Named so for its ever-changing landscape of greys and blues, the Opal Coast is a beach-side haven with that authentic French feel. Pretty promenades and golden sands make the perfect backdrop when conversing with the locals. And the sugary delights of local chocolateries and confiseries only sweeten the deal.

Information is available from your Local Authority on what is expected from party leaders on a trip. In addition, we are happy to assist you in ensuring that you have all of the necessary information to successfully assess risks and ensure a safe trip for you and your group. Further advice and information can be found on the OEAP National Guidance website.
Do you provide risk assessments for the visits you offer?

What does our insurance cover us for?
Our insurance providers offer comprehensive cover to our groups for the duration of their tour and is tailored specifically for schools, with specialist insurance policies for individual tour types. As with any insurance cover, it is vital that you read through the terms and conditions and that you declare any relevant information as requested.

For groups opting to take their own insurance, we highly recommend that you read all inclusions and exclusions prior to departure.
Is all of your accommodation audited in advance?
Yes, all of our accommodation is audited prior to us offering it to a group. The criterion of these audits is governed by the School Travel Forum (STF). It is important to remember that each country is governed by their own standards and laws and these may differ from UK law. However, we require our accommodation to meet our standards as a minimum.
