and caring host families for our students. We
aim to find hosts who are genuinely interested in
making a difference to the experience a child has
whilst on short holidays in the UK. We have an
excellent choice of host famiiies in all the areas in
which we offer guardianship. We understand that

Cambridge, called Relax and Revise.

Polite drivers, clean cars and safe and efficient
journeys and timings are paramount to the
service we provide to our students. We work

screening process and sign our Code of Conduct
charter to ensure that students are transported
safely and securely to and from airports.
Commitment to safeguarding children

children and has been accredited by AEGIS (The
