What’s Teen Travel?

“Learn the Art of Travelling”

L&E Teen Travel

L&E Teen Travel is like no other experience…

Teens are in charge of their own experience.  Explore the UK in groups of 6-8 with other teens from across the world and the UK.  They will be accompanied by 2 L&E Travel Mentors but THEY are in control of:

  • their own Budget
  • their own Itinerary
  • their own Accommodation
  • their own Transport
  • their own Food

L&E Teen Travel will give teens and parents the skills and peace of mind for any travelling they do in the future.

We teach our children as much as we can and we want the world for them. There comes a time when they want to explore the world for themselves too. Learn & Experience is the first UK travel operator to offer a teen travel course where young people plan and undertake their own adventure, with a guide at arm’s length.  The focus is to prepare young people (aged 15-17) for any travelling they do in the future. It’s a chance for them to step out into the world and learn travel skills practically and safely, with freedom supervised by a ‘travel mentor’.  We have lots of exciting programmes planned for 2017…

L&E Teen Travel has 3 main objectives

1) To prepare young people (15-17) for any travelling they do in the future

2) To give Teens the chance to make their own decisions by giving them control of their own itinerary and budget.

3) To give parents the reassurance that their children are learning valuable life skills in a safe, secure but exciting and challenging environment.

How does it work?

They’ll have a total budget for their travels with a big focus on learning to manage their money and get the most out of it. They’ll learn from the travel mentors how to get the best deals on booking and about how to stay safe. This is as far removed from the prescriptive summer travel experience as you can get. The travellers will be encouraged to seek out and visit places that really interest them, research what’s on in the local area and challenge themselves to manage their own exciting adventure.  They’ll be supervised but our travel mentors are there to encourage and support rather than to hold travellers back, so the journey is for the teens to lead.

L&E Teen Travellers get to do what THEY want to do… Enjoy Art? Check out The Tate Gallery in London.  In to your History?  Hadrian’s Wall blow your mind!  More of Football Fan than an Art Buff?  Tour Old Trafford “The Theatre of Dreams” in Manchester instead! Prefer something a bit more active? Go surfing in South Wales!

Why does it work?

Seasoned Travellers recognise that unplanned activities often turn out to be the most memorable, which is why our Teen Travellers get to be flexible when there’s a local Music Festival or special Art Exhibition the Group is interested in seeing.  Our trips are organised into sessions lasting 14 days. The Group sizes can vary from 6-12.
