  • Isn't it cheaper for me to organize my own trip?

    Many think that they will be saving money by organizing their own trips. Under normal circumstances, this is not the case. Super Holiday Tours has been in business over 40 years and receives prices that are only offered to us because of our long term relationships with vendors. Our annual volume also puts us in the top tier of pricing that groups direct cannot receive.

  • How safe is my child on this trip?

    Super Holiday Tours takes great care in planning the safest trips possible. We use only American Bus Association member coaches because they are held to the highest safety standards. We also offer the option of night time security dedicated to the group between the hours of 10pm and 6am. While no guarantees can ever be made, we do work the very hardest in ensuring the safest trip possible.

  • I found a lower price for our hotel or airline online, I thought you had buying power?

    We get this question often. All of the travel websites offer airline, train, hotel rooms and every other travel need. If you want one ticket, or one room, you can find it on Expedia, Kayak, or any other big travel website. However, when requesting 50 seats on an airline, 50 rooms at a hotel, or other large numbers for travel related services the prices will go up. Notice on Expedia that little box that says "2 at this price". When moving a group, these low prices do not apply.
