Claudia ZANGIEVA, the chief of department of tourism of Federal customs service of Joint-Stock Company Rostek - Novorossisk :

- Carrying out of summer children`s camps and programs of active travel for children of schoolboys - the basic and favourite line of activity of our company. You can choose the travel for children program on summer vacations in Moscow suburbs, on Volga, on Valdai, in Bulgaria, Czechia, Italy, on Ladoga and on Altai. The main thing that the camp program has approached on age and interests to your child. Cost of vacation packages from 12 thousand roubles.

rest in Bulgaria is very popular. It is the beautiful nature, the extensive excursion program, the warm sea, kindliness and hospitality of the local residents, saved from Soviet period. And here that has really changed, so it is repaired and freshened up the hotels, the improved service and, of course, grown up prices. But all - taki not so that this country became expensive direction inaccessible mass to the tourist. So Bulgaria and remains today to one of the best variants of rather inexpensive family rest - especially with children. Cost of ten-day tour in this country - from 10 thousand roubles.

the Weight of indelible impressions will be presented to you by rest in Kareliya. As it is known, at each medal two parties, and that circumstance that tourism in Kareliya till now has not risen on a stream has allowed this edge to save ecology, beauty and protogenic wildness the nature.   and it now the expensive costs. Therefore it is no wonder that every year here comes more and more the Russian travellers. Working in the tourist market, our company became not only the witness, but also the participant of growth of this popularity.   vacation package cost to Kareliya - from 5 thousand roubles.

Tatyana the FROST, the head of student`s travel agency STAR Travel   in Krasnodar:    

- the Russian tourist branch actively develops. Various tourist packages on training and rest both on territory of Russia, and behind its limits are ready to get the increasing quantity of parents for the children. Safety issues children`s and youth travel stand very sharply. How this problem dares?

Our company - the leader of branch of youth travel of Russia - initiated creation in Association of tour operators of Russia (ATOR) Committee on educational tours and children`s tourism. The main thing in activity of new committee is assistance to safety children`s and youth travel, and also protection of the rights and interests of Russian children and youth according to the Federal law About tourism .

At direct participation of committee the list of the companies giving financial guarantees at the organisation of nurseries and educational tours is prepared. It is important to remember that if you go abroad, using the firm registered in the Uniform federal register of VEILS of the Russian Federation, what with you happens abroad - an emergency situation, problems with a receiving party or quality of services, - always there is a possibility to come back home and thus to have guarantees of indemnification of means, thanks to the insurance financial deposit. It is very important component of security, but that the majority of the companies which are engaged in children`s and educational tourism in Russia, do not provide it very few people is informed.   now our basic efforts are directed on legalisation of activity of the companies which will organise travel for children and educational tours. In the latent form of tourist`s camera activity now are engaged to 70 % of the largest companies on which share it is necessary more than 65 % in the given segment of the market. And it means that under the threat there can be a security of rest more than 65 % of Russian children and youth.


Not casually STAR Travel has declared problems of security of granting of children`s tourist services.

STAR Travel - leading youth travel agency of Russia which is the general representative of the largest network of the international agencies STAR Travel in territory of Russia. The company in 1995 is based. Has representation in 14 cities of the Russian Federation and contracts about cooperation with more than 50 leading high schools of Russia. Representations of our partner STAR Travel are located on all continents of a planet: the company has over 2000 offices more than in 80 countries of the world.

the basic lines of activity and company services concern:

* sale of special air tickets on exclusive youth fares, students and teachers;
* development of the market of electronic tickets in Russia;
* development student`s and youth travel in the Russian Federation;
* distribution international student`s (ISIC) and teaching (ITIC) certificates;
* the training organisation on various language and to educational programs worldwide;
* the organisation of student`s rest under program Work and Travel USA.

Choose financial guarantees, planning training and vacation abroad

That it is necessary to know about educational tour programs? Where to receive the information and how is better to dispose and receive to it guarantees of what all conditions promised by the operator will be met and all services are rendered, and you save the finance and nervous cages?

is more detailed about the basic problems of the organisation of educational tour     Boris Samarjanov and the head of the Krasnodar division STAR Travel Tatyana Moroz have told the general director of Youth travel agency STAR Travel , the head of Committee ATOR of educational tours and children`s tourism.

- What companies are engaged today in the organisation of training and training abroad?

- Historically so has developed that in Russia, as well as in the majority of the countries of the world, in this market two types of the companies work. The first - large enough organisations, representations of the foreign language and educational centres or the domestic companies, whose efficiency and reliability it is checked up by time. Such structures specialise on work with schoolboys and youth, and, as a rule, have branched out enough network of representations.  

the Second type of the organisations - the small companies created by in most cases former employees of large structures or the family companies. A parity of a market share for these two types of the companies in each country a miscellaneous. In the western market the small family companies, with small staff and the turn, rendering specialised services, for example, prevail. In Russia trust large firms though judging by quantity of the small firms offering educational tourist services, demand while exceeds the offer more.

  - that it is necessary to learn about agency before to use its services?

- Until recently recommendations of friends were the most exact criterion of a choice of the company. But since last year there was one more starting point: Have entered the new form of company registration in Federal agency on tourism of the Russian Federation (VEILS of the Russian Federation), replacing licensing in the given kind of enterprise activity. Each company,   independently organising a trip for citizens of Russia or the foreign states, including visa support, purchase of tickets, the organisation of residing and other, with ANY purposes, including education, - to be obliged it to is brought in the Uniform federal register of VEILS of the Russian Federation. For such check in the company should provide presence of a financial guarantee of the state by means of bank or the insurance company which makes today 5 million roubles, and since June, 1st, 2008 will be estimated in the sum of 10 million roubles. In this case, clients of such organisations can be assured in   to protection of the rights and qualities of given services at the state level.

it is important to remember that educational tours - a version of tourist business. By new rules if you go abroad, using the firm brought in   the Uniform federal register that with you does not happen abroad   (the company was ruined, there were problems with a receiving party or quality of services), always there is a possibility   to come back home, having guarantees of that to you compensate means for not rendered or poor-quality services thanks to the insurance financial deposit. It is very important component of security. Unfortunately, now in the market of educational tourism only about 30 % of the companies are registered in the Uniform federal register, and all the others work with transgression, masking the activity under educational and consulting services. Thus they, upon, carry out tourist`s camera activity, but any guarantees it is not given to clients of these organisations.

- How much travel agencies in Russia offer today education abroad?

- By our calculations, in Russia now an order 60 - 70 companies on which share it is necessary about 95 % of the market and which independently make and sell educational programs as to clients directly, and by means of subagencies. Thus, only nearby 20 from them while are registered in the Uniform federal register and give financial guarantees to the clients.

But now in our market the positive tendency was outlined and actively there is a legalisation process: the state checks the companies, forcing to leave them a shade. That, undoubtedly, gives to the Russian tourists, students and schoolboys additional guarantees both own security, and quality of the services, after all not any small firm is capable to provide annually a financial guarantee in such large size.

- Exists   Leah an obligatory package deal which the agency is obliged to give to the client?

- At the educational tour organisation all rendered services can be divided into two types conditionally: standard services which the travel agency at the organisation of any tour (renders the air ticket order, medical insurance in a trip, visa registration, the organisation of a transfer and etc.) And specific services and procedures. They are diverse: all depends that of what purposes are pursued by the student or his parents and on what the accent - on rest, education will be put first of all and etc.

Depending on these requirements for large agency to you will recommend the suitable country, the program, residing variants, an educational program, national structure of groups, the list of additional excursions, playing sports and etc. But anyway, of course, it is necessary to read attentively the contract before its signing that there were no vain expectations and possibilities for unfair work.

- On what cost of services of the agencies offering education and training abroad depends?

-   Cost is defined first of all professionalnostju the companies. More often, if the company gives financial guarantees, the material aspect of their work is transparent enough. As they are obliged to correspond to the law completely. From the text of the contract with similar firm it is accurately visible, what sum goes on payment of school, the centre or camp, on agency compensation, how much is the ticket and etc.

And the small companies as we already spoke with you above, do not name more often themselves travel agencies, officially do not register the activity, and mask under masks of the firms rendering consulting or educational services.   such firms will suggest you to pay very often any consulting gathering, then will ask to go to bank and to pay school services directly .   Probably, will sell the air ticket, or will simply recommend to be converted into the next agency where the organizer of a trip also will receive subsequently the commission for the air ticket redeemed by you. At last, such companies can have arrangements with language schools that the client translates school the sum considerably exceeding cost of training, and the difference remains on a certain offshore abacus in favour of the company - the organizer of a trip. But even if training cost in the same language centre will be comparable at the different companies, think, a leah it is necessary to subject itself to such risks.

to be protected from similar firms, it is necessary to observe two major corrected. The first - attentively to read the contract. If it is made on consulting service, instead of on rendering of tourist services, speech, most likely, will go about the latent form of tourist`s camera activity, and will track structure of your expenses very difficult. The second - check, a leah enters the company to which you were converted, in the Uniform Federal register of Federal Agency on tourism - this list actively replenishes today, and its actual variant is accessible on a site of VEILS to the address: http:// www. russiatourism. ru/. If the company in the Register does not appear, it is possible, without refusing its services, to demand for the organisation of your training to involve officially registered tour operator, to have confidence of observance of all treaty provisions and financial guarantees of a trip. However, in this case, cost of your travel, most likely will increase.

- How correctly to be prepared for educational tour? What reefs it is possible to expect?

- By experience of the child and our clients I can tell that the most difficult trip - the first. The young man and furthermore, the child, feels powerful cultural shock. More often, in this situation to it not before serious training. And in this situation it is very important, that nearby there were professional teachers who will manage to reduce to a minimum of a consequence of a shock. Better for the first time to choose not so sated program, for example language & rest and it is exact at well checked up school.   thus,   the schoolboy   or the student can easily accept new mode of study and understand it,   and then further it will be already possible to plan effectively and serious educational   projects.
