FAQs about this tour

Find the answers to some of our most frequently asked questions.

  • Do you provide risk assessments for hotels?

    Rayburn Tours have individual audits which are completed on every hotel/accommodation centre which we use. We are more than happy for you to see this should you wish. Our audits cover fire safety, means of escape and general safety.

  • What support do you have in place in the event of a crisis situation?

    In the unlikely event that your group is involved in a crisis situation during your tour, you can be assured that Rayburn Tours have a Crisis Management System in place which is fully supported by ABTA, ATOL and Endsleigh Insurance Services Ltd. In 2010 our robust crisis management system was successfully implemented following the Eyjafjallajokull volcanic eruption in Iceland and 290 passengers were quickly and efficiently repatriated – this gives you the reassurance that support is on-hand in exceptional circumstances.

    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.
