About

Teachers who book our trips will tell you that a Saffron tour is a far more relaxing experience....

The day to day management of the tour and the pressures surrounding this responsibility are taken away from you by the Saffron coordinator assigned to your group.
Saffron tours are fully escorted. We are literally with you every step of the way. This allows you to enjoy every single moment of the tour since you don’t have to try and plan the routes, the timings, the ticket collections, and the problems with the local language. Leave it to your coordinator and enjoy the fully escorted Saffron experience.

Saffron is the only company in Ireland to offer groups an ALL-INCLUSIVE group tour.

We don’t start by selling a trip and then adding on to fill the itinerary. A Saffron itinerary is planned with a final price to cover everything on the trip. Pupils will only need money for additional soft drinks with meals or for a souvenir. Parents have told us that they prefer this arrangement because there is no pressure around spending money and you won’t have to worry about students losing or running out of money for lunch, entrance charges, bus tickets, metro or underground tickets. Saffron students have everything covered. Spending money on a Saffron trip is normally limited to €100 for a 5-day trip, this ensures students on a Saffron trip travel as equals. We have never ever gone back to a group leader to tell them the cost of a tour has gone up. The price is the price. You will not be put in a position of having to ask parents and students for more money. That is a Saffron promise.

Saffron is fully bonded by the Commission for Aviation Regulation, (TA 0659). Saffron Tours are FULLY ESCORTED by professional Tour Coordinators.

Saffron Tour coordinators just don’t give you advice over the phone. No. Saffron Coordinators are with you every step of the way, literally. Saffron tours are “All Inclusive”, which when combined with your “In attendance” coordinator ensures a hassle free tour.

Saffron itineraries are planned with a clear structure that ensures the group is kept busy constantly throughout. Saffron trips are focused on the curriculum, helping students to pass their exams. An “All Inclusive” tour reduces the pressure on the students when it comes to the question of spending money and Saffron now offer a fund raising kit to assist student groups to pay for their tour and making “funding fun”. Please ask us for more details on your fundraising pack and finally Low deposit requests and a very flexible payment plan ensures a Saffron trip is a possibility for every student.
