We understand the wanderlust of many of the teachers coming to the UK from New Zealand and how much of an attraction the ease of traveling in Europe from the UK is. So to help with your adventures we’ve teamed up with travel companies Contiki and Topdeck to be able to offer you a free holiday in Europe, for your first two years!


Easter in Amsterdam

Explore Amsterdam by land and sea! Travel with a Contiki group to explore the city’s famous canals with a night time canal cruise. Then in the morning visit the famous tulip gardens of Keukenhof and soak up the culture in Amsterdam’s world famous museums, trendy cafés and shops. You’ll also get the chance to hop on a bike and take a tour through the scenic village of Edam, famous for its windmills and cheese!


Easter in Paris

Fancy spending Easter in Paree? Qui, qui! Whisk away from London to Paris on this memorable three night jaunt, where you’ll experience all the City of Light has to offer and more. Cruise the River Seine, shop along the Champs-Élysées, ascend the Eiffel Tower and devour as many macaroons, crème brulees and pain au chocolates as you can handle.

Easter in Bruges

Bruges is calling. Join your fellow teachers on this four-day escape to the fairytale-like Belgian city, where cobblestone streets and medieval buildings are in abundance and getting around in a horse-drawn carriage is totally the norm. With a chocolate demonstration and a brewery visit to help wash it all down, this is guaranteed to be an Easter to remember.

Or you can get a £300 voucher for any Contiki or Topdeck Holiday!
Subject to availability and change. Terms and conditions apply.
