What We Do

Working with students

Blue Stamp Travel work with students and their parents/carers directly to arrange work experience abroad and language courses. Students enrol online, independent of their schools, removing the burden on schools to administer trips and complete laborious paperwork. We provide extensive support on the phone and via email prior to, during and after your travels.

We work with KS3, GCSE, AS and A Level Students, Gap Year Students, University Students, and Adults wishing to learn or improve their language skills. We also work with students working for their Scottish Highers, IB, Irish Leaving Certificate and Pre-U qualifications.

Many schools have small language classes and are no longer able to run trips abroad. Importantly, we ensure that, no matter how small your language class, you can have an experience abroad that will enhance your language skills and boost exam results.

Working with schools

We are the go-to provider for many school language departments who out-source the provision of school trips to us. We cater for students who want to travel but do not have access via school.

We also offer tailor-made work experience abroad trips for schools, putting together packages of work experience, language school, host family or hotel accommodation and transport. We aim to provide a package to suit your needs, working with you and offering our expertise to arrange the best experience for your students.

Working with groups

If you have a grop looking for support in delivering a trip or complete package, Blue Stamp are able to provide a bespoke tailor-made service working with you to provide an unforgettable tour for your group: Sports Tours, Music Tours, Competitions or anything else. We work with partners to provide transfers, travel, accommodation, meals, local transport and more. Contact us to find out more and have a discussion about how we can help.

My daughter had a fabulous time on a Blue Stamp Travel work experience holiday in Valencia. It was well planned and safe, with a person on hand through the week for any difficulties, as well as allowing them a lot of independence and free time. She got so much out of it. The work experience was well tailored to her study choices, and I think that was true of all the group. She loved every minute. The personal service was outstanding. My daughter had an accident before she went and I had several conversations with the owner Steve about whether the trip was still appropriate. He also rang me to discuss activities that were planned and whether or not she could do them and what the alternatives were ahead of time. He went above and beyond to make sure we were reassured. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this company and the holiday.

What a great travel company for schools! Nothing is too much trouble and they are always quick to respond. We had a delayed tram on a day trip and when we contacted Blue Stamp Travel they replied in minutes. Communication while we were away was excellent and staff are fab!

In the summer of 2023, I went on a work experience trip to Hamburg with a group of around 10 other students and 2 group leaders, which was organised/run by Blue Stamp travel. It was an amazing experience that I highly recommend. The first week consisted of language school at the Colon Sprachschule, which was a great way for me to learn German in a teaching style that I had never experienced at GCSE level. Then I had a work placement at Roncalli Cafe in central Hamburg, which again was an amazing experience - Timur and all the waiters were really friendly. Our group leaders Ali and Ben were also amazing and organised loads of activities, such as day trips to nearby Luneberg and Lubeck, as well as group trips in Hamburg. Although going away for such a long time might be daunting at first, you quickly get to know everyone around you and the time flies due to enjoyment you are having. Thank you Steve for organising everything, and I really recommend the trip to anyone hoping to improve their language skills and meet new people.

Had an incredible month long trip to Valencia, with one week at school and three at work. Our group leaders were extremely helpful and were happy to aid us in any problems that we had. Although we had lots of freedom to see the city and do what we want, we had group activities as well to check up on us, and provide a fun way to see even more of the city.

My daughter has just come back from Hamburg on the Turing Scheme. The organisation and quality of accommodation, language school, and work placement was exceptional. A very valuable experience for teenagers interested in languages, but also for gaining general confidence and independence. The staff at Blue Stamp travel were fantastic with their pre-trip organisation, and the staff in Hamburg very friendly and approachable (but still managed to herd a gang of teenagers effectively). Thanks all!

Tom has returned from France having had a really enjoyable trip. He seems slightly older and wiser. We have written to the host family and wanted to pass on our thanks to Jemima, who went above and beyond in her role as Group Leader.

I will have no hesitation in recommending your organisation to fellow parents.

I just want to say thank-you for the Blue Stamp Work Experience Abroad trip to Dortmund that Rebecca went on last month. She really enjoyed the experience and learned so much while working at the pet store and finding her way around a foreign city. She was very proud of her final certificate and, indeed, so were we! I’m sure it will be something that will stand her in good stead in application processes in the future. I really commend you for the efficient way in which the trip was organised and the excellent communications provided at each stage of the trip.

I just want to say thank you for everything you have done sorting out and organising work experience and langauge course for Bella and I. We had an amazing time at school, work and at the host family apartments. I would definitely recommend this to others and I have no doubt that I will return in the near future.
