    •  Name of the student
    • Dates and name of the tour
    • Accommodation details
    • Tour Manager’s name and phone number
  • The natural parents will also receive an email confirming the student has booked the tour and asking for them to give their permission.
  • The host family are sent an email confirming their student has booked on a tour.

What can you expect from NZET?

  • Unbeatable value with many activities included so your student does not need to dip into their own pocket while on tour.
  • Tour Managers  have current first aid certificates, are trained in dealing with teenagers and in running tours for a professional tour company
  • NZET have an appropriate adult/student ratio with all adults police vetted.
  • Students only take part in well-established and safe activities, and will have parents’ permission to do anything remotely risky.
  • Travel is in 5 star coaches with seatbelts and skilled, licensed drivers.

While your student is on the tour, they probably won’t be texting or emailing their parents as often. This is usually because they’re out of cellphone coverage, or they’re having so much fun with their new found friends. In the unlikely event that something goes wrong, we will notify the school. Remember, no news is good news!

Best of all you can be certain your students will have the time of their lives, make lots of new friends, improving their self-confidence and their English. They’ll remember the tour as the best thing about their time in New Zealand!
