Schools can pick and choose from an array of curated itineraries that can be further customised based on the curriculum needs.

Speaking at the launch event, Karan Anand, Head, Relationships, Cox & Kings said “As a leading education travel group, we have always emphasised on travel as a means to learn. Learning through travel exposes curious minds to new experiences that involve them.
