Information for Parents
For those of you whose son or daughter is looking into taking a gap year, internship or career development experience, or spending some time overseas on a Changing Worlds placement, trip or tour, we are here to help and answer your questions to ensure that your are safe in the knowledge that your loved ones are travelling with a reputable organisation offering a personalised service, genuine advice and complete in-country support, as-well-as value for money.
As an experienced and trusted organisation in the travel market, we have facilitated amazing trips abroad for people since 1999, and in this time we have learnt a lot about the key factors that influence a successful trip for both the travellers, and those they are leaving behind. If you are about to wave your son or daughter off to travel the world and experience the freedom that comes with it, we think it is important that you are involved in the preparation process. By involving yourself in the preparation for their trip, it will, in turn, help to prepare you for their departure; and through regular contact while they are away, they will be back on home soil within what will feel like no time at all!
It can be an incredibly daunting prospect to leave your home country for an extended period of time, and we understand that it can be equally daunting for a parent to say goodbye! That is why we have compiled a list of questions and useful information to help those who are a bit anxious about the prospect of letting a son or daughter travel overseas on their own and possibly for the first time.
