Tune in to learn more about S-Trip! and information about your son or daughter's trip.

Letter From The President - Alex Handa

At S-Trip! we understand that leaving your child in the care of someone else can be worrisome. This is why we pride ourselves on offering full-service parent support.

Dear Parents

I am very excited that your son or daughter is considering travelling with S-Trip! Each year we unite students as they develop their independence, celebrate their academic achievements and have fun with their classmates. I want to take this opportunity to tell you about our trips and I invite you to contact us with any questions.

S-Trip! has an award-wining reputation in the travel industry based on strong relationships with partners and a passion for great customer service. We focus on creating tours that balance cultural experiences and quality time with friends. Through our programs students will have the opportunity to discover ancient cities & pyramids, visit jungles & eco-parks, or swim & snorkel in exotic waters. We hope that students leave our tours with new friends, a stronger sense of independence and an appreciation of different cultures.

Student safety is paramount and that's why our programs are fully staffed by experienced staff who understand the balance between safe supervision and fun. Staff are closely involved in all aspects of the programs and are always nearby for both students and parents at home. We also include RBC Classic Medical Travel Insurance in all of our programs for added protection and peace of mind.

As student breaks are among the most popular time of year to travel we start the booking process early. Strong partner relationships afford us special early booking discounts, which we pass onto the students. Booking early allows payments to be spaced out over a yearlong period, making our trips easier to budget and plan for.

Our staff are knowledgeable and readily available to assist parents and students not only with the decision-making process, but with pre-departure guidance and 24/7 assistance while in-destination. I hope you enjoy reading about our programs, and I urge you to call or email us with any questions you may have. Better yet, join us and find out what makes Grad Trip so incredible!

Sincerely,
Alexandre J. Handa, President

Safety & Support System

Safety is our absolute highest priority! That's why for the past 35+ years we have been continuously developing industry-leading safety protocols that are tailored to the unique needs of teens.

  • Code of Conduct

    The Code of Conduct outlines rules for students including common sense rules for safety and conduct. The Code of Conduct can be viewed on our website, and must be signed by both students and parents/guardians prior to departure.

  • Sign In & Quiet Hours

    Students are required to sign-in with their designated Trip Leader 3 times a day. Sign-in must be done by the student and cannot be completed by a friend or roommate. Quiet hours are from 10pm - 7am. Final sign-in is 1am, at which time all students must be in their own rooms.

  • Insurance

    We want to make sure all our students are protected; that's why we include RBC Classic Medical Insurance in the cost of each program. This provides complete medical coverage in the event of an injury or sickness while traveling.

  • Travel With Confidence

    S-Trip! is a licensed Retail Travel Agency registered with TICO and Consumer Protection BC, operating in accordance with the Travel Industry Act and the Business Practices and Consumer Protection Authority Act. We are a BBB accredited business with an A+ rating. Students and parents can be confident their travel plans are safe with S-Trip!.

  • Full Service Parent Support

    We pride ourselves with offering full-service parent support. Our friendly staff will be available for questions and concerns from trip registration, through to travel, and even once your son or daughter returns home. During all travel periods there is a 24-hour emergency line available.

  • Medical Emergencies

    In the unlikely event of a medical emergency, our first priority is ensuring the injured student receives immediate medical attention. One of our staff members will remain with the student at all times until the situation has stabilized. We will then contact the parents/guardians and the insurance company. Each resort has medical staff on-site or readily available.
