• CHA Educational Tours Announces Early Bird Savings Plan for 2011 - 3/16/2010

Travelers Who Book 2011 Tours by August 30 Can Lock in Current Rates.

The world just became more accessible for teachers traveling with their students with the announcement of CHA Educational Tours' new 2011 Early Bird Savings Plan. Designed for ultimate flexibility while rewarding those groups who plan ahead, CHA's Early Bird Savings Plan helps put the rewards of educational travel more within reach.

"It definitely pays to think ahead when it comes to student educational tours," says Domenica Falcione, president and cofounder of CHA Educational Tours. "Traveling abroad is such a wonderful way to supplement classroom learning, and with our Early Bird pricing options, doing so is easy and affordable. Plus, our plan has many different savings options and the most generous enrollment deadlines available, offering teachers and students the most flexibility."

CHA's Early Bird Savings Plan offers students three great ways to save money on their 2011 trips. Travelers who book 2011 tours by Aug. 30, 2010, will take advantage of CHA's current 2010 prices, a significant discount off next year's rates. In addition, if a group books just three travelers by June 30, 2010, every subsequent student who enrolls by Sept. 30 will also enjoy the same 2010 rate. This gives tour leaders plenty of time to recruit more travelers once students return to school in the fall. Plus, CHA offers an additional $100 discount off 2010 rates for each student who enrolls by May 30, 2010. Finally, every student who takes advantage of the Early Bird Savings Plan will receive CHA's new Airport Organizer Pouch, a handy way to carry passports, airline tickets, credit cards and other essentials while traveling.

For group leaders, there's the peace of mind from knowing the Early Bird Savings Plan has built-in security and flexibility features, so booking travel ahead of time doesn't have to be a nerve-wracking experience. Educators who book early will reap other benefits as well, such as a free international cell phone and increased travel bonus points.

Educational tours serve as a "living classroom" and are particularly useful for foreign language, history and literature students who want to broaden their knowledge beyond textbooks. As a result, educational tour operators are as concerned with expanding knowledge and enhancing understanding as they are with recreation and sightseeing. In fact, CHA Educational Tours' co-founders were both high school foreign language teachers.

CHA Educational Tours offers over 130 comprehensive itineraries covering destinations throughout Europe, the Americas, Africa, Asia and the South Pacific. A large part of its success, Falcione says, is due to its commitment to quality and affordability for its student travelers and its network of professional, multi-lingual tour directors and expert city guides to conduct in-depth sightseeing.
