Booking your Child's Voyage
Through experience in this field, we understand how difficult it can be sending your child away from home - be it for the first time or the fiftieth. Therefore we try to make the booking process for our voyages as efficient and as informative as possible.
There are essentially 5 main stages:
We do our best to be as informative as possible so that a young person (with the support of a parent/guardian) can find the right programme for them, know what it entails and what to expect and know how much money they need to raise.
We will send out booking forms to be completed and returned to us. These include personal details, passport information, next of kin details, medical history, dietary requirements, etc.
- We will provide every young person with a Fundraising Pack, which is packed full of information and ideas on how they might work towards raising the money for their trip. We find that they gain a real sense of self-achievement from this process. British Nationals aged between 16-25 can also apply to Quaystage Training for a bursary towards the cost.
This involves individually booking travel insurance for the voyage (which we are available to offer guidance on) and making sure that they have everything they need. We supply a Recommended Kit List. They will also need to make any travel arrangements such as travel and flights etc.
Ready to go!
With all forms and payments received and all preparation done, we will be waiting to welcome you on board!
We are here to help
We like to keep in touch with young people, and parents/guardians, to see how fundraising efforts and other preparations are going. We're always on hand to answer any questions or queries that may arise along the way.
