The Brightspark team has been planning TRIO tours for almost twenty years. Our dedicated travel experts are standing by to create your custom, all-inclusive trip.
Many colleges and universities need advanced notice for campus tours, and these fill up quickly. Booking your TRIO trip early gives you the best chance to secure tours at your top schools while they're still available.
Some schools offer information sessions to discuss their programs, admissions process, and financial aid opportunities. These private meetings aren't always available, so planning ahead helps you get the most of your college visit.
We don't just plan campus visits; we like to inspire your students' love of travel by adding stops at must-see sites and attractions. Many of these popular stops are ticketed and will be sold out if you book late.
The more you delay, the more you'll pay. Airfare only increases as the departure date nears, and hotel and motor coach rates go up as demand increases. Help keep your costs low by securing your dates early.
Whether you've been planning TRIO trips for years or you're looking to build a travel tradition in your program, our panelists answer top questions regarding the advantages of working with a tour operator, health and safety in the current environment, our top destinations for TRIO groups, and the benefits of planning early.
We remain committed to health, safety, and flexibility in these unprecedented times. Our COVID-19 protocols are reviewed regularly. They apply to 2021 trips, and we'll evaluate them for 2022 groups and beyond, keeping them in place as long as they help mitigate the risk of contacting COVID-19 while on a Brightspark tour.
