    About Us

    Our History
    COGO Travel is the new name for The Travel Adventure. It all started back in 1993 with a simple objective: to ensure our customers were well cared for. Throughout the years COGO Travel hasn’t shifted its focus and we’re delighted to have grown to become an award winning group travel organisation.

    COGO Travel is now a specialist group tour operator offering tailored tours to the needs of school groups, college groups and adult groups from companies, clubs and societies. You can book with confidence. We are a member of ABTA which means you have the benefit of ABTA's assistance and Code of Conduct.  We provide full financial protection for your money and are bonded with ATOL for flight bookings.

    As one of the few preferred tour operators for Disneyland® Paris we’ve developed great packages for schools and groups to Disneyland® Paris and we were the first to establish an educational convention in 1995.

    In 2014 we joined forces with Budget School & Group Tours, (now COGO Travel also) Ireland’s leading school tour operator. This new partnership has enabled us to offer teachers a wide range of subject specific tours with visits linked to the curriculum. As a result we’re now members of Learning Outside the Classroom and the School Travel Forum, offering you maximum support and safety and minimum hassle.

    Our group tours range for adults is always being updated as we negotiate the best deals with suppliers throughout Europe and the world. We work closely with Asda, BT and lots of sports and social groups to deliver our personal, tailored service year after year.

    We understand that there are huge demands placed on Group Leaders today. Our team is driven by making things as easy as possible for you when you’re organising your group’s tour. We also like to keep things fresh by adding new attraction and destination ideas. We tailor every tour to suit your needs, so if you don’t see something that’s up your street on our website please get in touch and let us know what you’re after. If you simply need flights booked you’ll be covered by our Tour Operator bond, removing the risk if you did it yourself and keeping you legally above board. We’re here to help you and make things easy, so please get in touch and we’ll look forward to getting you on your way!

    The Team
    We believe it’s important to put a face to the name you work with over the phone. We’re a mix of tour advisors, tour planners, marketing and product development gurus and we all have at least one thing in common… a great love of travel!
