Financial Support for Travel Expenses

We all know the benefits an educational visit can bring, but we also know that rising travel costs and tighter school budgets are making these visits more unattainable. Therefore, please see the options below that may help to reduce the cost of your travel to the Gardens.


Coach Hire Comparison

Coach Hire Comparison puts you in direct contact with coach and minibus hire suppliers. The suppliers provide you with detailed quotations for you to compare, before you make any decisions about which supplier (if any) best meets your needs. You then deal directly with the supplier of your choice.
