Are there college tours to Africa without international flights

YOU ASKED


Why do providers of college travel package to Africa insist on selling airfare as part of the package? We would want to take advantage of very cheap airfares to Africa from a consolidator on the internet but the eduactional travel planner will not separate flights to Nairobi from the ground package. How can we go around it?


ANNE HUYSMAN REPLIES


Travel agencies for college tours to Africa normally sell a package that includes flights, accommodation and itinerary related ground activities. The reason for this packaging, which by the way is to the best advantage of the college, is that the travel agency is then a one-stop-shop for the whole tour.

Grant it the college travel agencies are in a business to make a profit, but their profit margins come from different sections of the tour with every part bringing in a small percentage.

Your college tours agency is in all likely hood looking at a long term travel relationship with your college and he will go out of his way to get you much better flight deals than you possibly can get from a consolidator.

On the cheap airfares to Africa, it helps to check the terms and conditions for the airfare, especially on validity and flexibility of the ticket.

Booking your airfare to Nairobi via your college travel agency means that he will be there to sort out any logistical flight related issues that may arise with your booking.
