School holidays aren’t just for the kids. Teachers deserve a break too. (And a discount.)

At the end of a long school semester there’s nothing like some time away to feel rested and refreshed. But holidaying can often leave you more exhausted than rejuvenated. Flights to book, buses to catch, language barriers to break, maps to navigate... Plus term breaks can be a time where crowds and prices are on the increase unless you have someone experienced to negotiate them.


So for your next trip away, why not leave the hassles of your holiday in the hands of a business whose business is travel.


For over 25 years, Intrepid Travel has been designing and operating trips that take the logistical headaches out of overseas travel without sacrificing any of the adventure. By using public transport, staying in locally owned accommodation and employing passionate local leaders, we ensure our travellers get off the beaten track and really under the skin of a destination. And because all the arrangements have been made in advance, you won’t find yourself spending precious travel hours haggling with taxi drivers or discovering that the museum you’d planned on visiting is closed on Sundays.


Spanning over 100 countries across the globe – from Mozambique to Mexico, Spain to Sri Lanka – our trips have a range of styles and themes, meaning there’s a holiday for every budget, preferred travel style and interest. So whether it’s French chateaux or the twisting trails of Patagonia you yearn for, we’ve got you covered. And with an average group size of 10 like-minded travellers, your adventure will not only be a social one, you will go to places other larger groups can’t get to.


We also organise private departures, so chat to us if you’re after a hassle-free private trip for your school.


Best of all, our special 10% Teacher Discount now makes getting away even easier. It’s available year-round and on almost any land-based trip. Just think of it as our way of saying thanks for those geography lessons back in the day.

Our travel styles


For travellers on a budget, our Basix trips keep inclusions to a minimum. They’re about value and lots of free time to choose the activities and extras that you want to do. Find out more


The classic Intrepid style. These trips come with some included activities and stay at more hotels than Basix trips. The perfect choice for those who want a taste of everything. Find out more

Ways to book and booking services

We’ve tried to make it as easy as possible to book you very own Intrepid group tour. You can browse our home page, find a trip you like and click the big ‘Book Now’ button to do it all online, or give us a call to chat to an adventure specialist in real time: get advice on a particular trip, or just brainstorm ideas based on your timelines, budget and interests.  


Our booking team can also find the perfect flights to synch with your trip, lock in travel insurance and airport transfers, organise extra accommodation, visas and anything else you might need. One phone call and you could be on your way, leaving you more time for the important things: googling your destination at work, imagining yourself with a tan, and making your friends jealous on social media. 


Browse by destination

With more than 1,000 adventures in over 100 countries, we’re now covering more of the globe than ever before – north to south, east to west. Mountains to the lowlands, cities to the seas. So whether it’s the Arctic’s apex or Antarctica’s underside, Africa’s wilds or Europe’s elegance you seek – we’re there. There to get you off the beaten track, behind the scenes and really in the thick of the destination that's calling you.
