Kaleidoscope Adventures has been a leader in student travel for more than 27 years. We are leading the way again with #KASafe – a multi-level response to current travel challenges.
Kaleidoscope Adventures’ goal is always travel beyond expectations. We created the #KASafe campaign with exactly that goal in mind. #KASafe is a next-level approach to helping our travelers feel comfortable, confident, and cared for during their adventures.
Kaleidoscope Adventures is taking bold steps to help keep our clients safe. These include:
• Working ONLY with KA Approved Suppliers
-Kaleidoscope Adventures has the highest expectations for our industry suppliers. Hotels, restaurants, attractions, and transportation don’t make the KA cut unless they meet our strict, KA Approved standards for excellence:
- Demonstrate enhanced sanitation procedures that meet or exceed industry standards
- Helpful staff committed to your group’s well-being
- Flexible and friendly policies that make sense for groups
• KA Certified Tour Directors
-Fun, friendly and focused, KA tour directors deliver a first-rate travel experience! Each has completed rigorous preparation as part of the KA Certification Program. Our experienced directors are CPR / First Aid certified and trained in enhanced sanitation procedures for the health and well-being of travelers. They also conduct rapid, onsite supplier checks to be sure partners meet KA’s standards for excellence.
• KAre Kit for Each Traveler
-Kaleidoscope Adventures makes traveler safety its number one priority. KAre Kits are now included as part of your adventure! Each KAre Kit will have items like hand sanitizer, individual lanyards for tickets, and a drawstring bag for personal items. When it comes to safety, KA has it in the bag!
• Medical Professional Complimentary Package Included
-We understand that students sometimes get sick or hurt while traveling. Imagine the peace of mind of having a medical professional on your trip! KA is now including a Medical Professional Complimentary Package with each adventure (airfare not included).
You can designate one “medical chaperone” to travel with you at no cost. This may be a school nurse, parent physician or other health care professional willing to provide medical help when needed. It’s trusted medical care, chosen by you.
• Post-Departure Travel Protection is Included for Each Traveler
-As part of our commitment to customer well-being, KA will include for each traveler, post-departure travel protection. The benefits are outlined in a two-page highlight document that each traveler will receive. There is no trip cancellation benefit in this product.
Travelers may also purchase Cancel for Any Reason (CFAR) travel protection. Details will be provided prior to purchase. This benefit is not available to residents of New York.
• Online Registration and Payment
– KA now has a new online registration and payment system for each of its travelers. This new portal is designed to streamline the process of planning your adventure, making it quick and easy to make payments or find important documents. It allows for transparency in our partnership, so you always know where you stand.
