About Us

We are the specialist in group travel with over 25 years of experience

Our History

Established in 1993, we have considerable experience in organising cultural tours, active adventures and special interest breaks for groups.  Wherever you go, we will ensure you have a memorable travel experience. We have one simple objective - to ensure our customers are well cared for and have fantastic travel experiences.  We are delighted to have grown the number of groups travelling with us year after year.

With COGO Travel you are in safe hands

Our educational tours are accredited by the School Travel Forum and we are holders of the Learning Outside the Classroom (LoTC) Quality Badge and so you can be assured of our Health & Safety standards. You can book with confidence, as we are a member of ABTA, which means you have the security of ABTA’s assistance and Code of Conduct. Your school or college group trip will enjoy full financial protection from ABTA, or from ATOL if travelling by air. 

We set the standard for Student and Performing Arts Events at Disneyland® Paris

As one of a handful of key partners of Disneyland® Paris, we’ve developed great packages for school and college groups. We were the first to establish a student convention with Disneyland® Paris back in 1995 and this annual event now hosts over 1,000 Travel and Tourism students gaining exclusive insights into the Business of  Disney. Using this experience we've since launched our equally popular Business Lab student convention at Disneyland® Paris where Business students can learn directly from inspirational business leaders and entrepreneurs. 

Time to Shine is our exclusive dance event run in conjunction with the fabulous Performing Arts team at Disneyland® Paris. Every year we bring together dance schools for an amazing extravaganza of music and dance, Disney workshops and performances. 

The exclusive school trip partner for Butlin's 

As the exclusive partner for Butlin's learning adventures, we are able to offer Primary school residentials across all Butlin's locations throughout the UK.  Designed to combine fun, activity and learning whilst getting children outdoors, our brilliant residentials support educational attainment and mental health and serve as a fantastic rite of passage for year 6 primary school pupils.

We cater for all educational trips needs

As well as offering exclusive performing arts events and student conferences at Disneyland® Paris, we offer a broad range of exciting subject-specific tours for schools and colleges through our sister company, Voyager School Travel. Tapping into Voyager School Travel's own language and adventures centres across Europe, and their subject and destination expertise, we can offer a one-stop-shop for schools and colleges looking for high-quality educational and residential tours.  With every trip linked to the curriculum for each subject, we work with teachers and lecturers to ensure learning goals are met. 

We specialise in groups

Our leisure group tours for adults are designed to offer a selection of tested itineraries so that you get the most from your travels.
