Company History

Next Generation Travel was founded in October 2010 and by November 2010 had acquired WST. This was followed by the acquisition of FHT in August 2013. In January 2017 NGT acquired Anglia Tours. In October 2018, NGT acquired Study Experiences, Sport Experiences and Remembrance Travel for Schools and Young People and in 2019 Galina International Study Tours became part of the group. Our highly experienced team has gone from strength to strength. Passenger numbers have grown from less than 5,000 in 2010 to over 70,000 passengers in 2018/2019.

In 2020, along with the rest of the world, we faced huge challenges and now in 2022 we are here and to support teachers, lecturers and group leaders with their plans to begin travelling again, however near or far.

The key to our success is having an experienced, dedicated and committed team who are totally focused on delivering high quality educational travel experiences backed up by the very highest levels of personal service.
