School group travel survey 2023 results


Today we’re publishing the results of our 2023 survey of school group travel businesses.

Key findings

  • Between 2019 and 2022 the number of school children the business surveyed brought to the UK from the EU declined by 81%.

  • Recovery from these figures is starkly different between the EU and UK.
  • The surveyed businesses expect to recover their school group trips to the EU to 108% of 2019 figures in 2023.
  • In contrast, the businesses expect to recover their UK school trips to only 61% of 2019 figures this year.
