USIT School Tours is regulated by the Commission for Aviation Regulation and our Tour Operator license number is 0660. We’re members of IATA and the Irish Travel Agents Association. Our team is based in the USIT building on Dublin’s Aston Quay.
Just over 30 years ago, in 1985, we started out in business as a small company organising group tours, mostly for schools. Back then we were known as Budget School & Groups Tours (and more recently as COGO Travel). We soon became Ireland’s leader in organising school tours and in 2007, we were snapped up by USIT Ireland. Indeed, many of us have very fond memories of USIT from our student days as they are Ireland’s best-known student travel operator.
For many years we were asked why we didn’t just simply call our schools business USIT. So, this year, we have finally decided to simplify matters and rename our school brand COGO Travel as USIT School Tours.
Everything else about USIT School Tours remains the same, if not better, not least our continued commitment to offer the very best quality and best priced educational and cultural tours in the market.
Feel free to call, email or drop into us to discuss your group’s travel plans, we’re here to help get you on your way.
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!
