CHA's New Online Tools Make It Easier for Teachers to Plan Their Group Educational Travel Experience

PHILADELPHIA, PA--(Marketwire - November 22, 2010) - CHA Educational Tours puts the world within your grasp as it debuts new online tools to help teachers plan educational travel for the new school year.

CHA's website now offers "My Tour Quotes," a new online feature that allows teachers to calculate a complete tour quote for any of CHA's pre-designed educational tours. Trip planners choose their itinerary, U.S. departure city, and other criteria, and a complete tour quote specifically for their group is created online instantly to be saved for later retrieval. This simplifies the process of finding a tour and provides an apples-to-apples price comparison of prospective itineraries. To find a tour and create an instant tour quote, go to http://www.cha-tours.com/Tours/TourQuotes/SavedTourQuotes.aspx.

For the first time, teachers can also customize an itinerary on CHA Educational Tours' website. The Custom Tour Planner asks educators to enter their desired trip length, U.S. departure and foreign arrival cities, anticipated travel budget, sightseeing destinations, overnight cities and other details. An itinerary outline is then built automatically and submitted to CHA with the click of the mouse, cutting down the time it takes to plan and price a custom tour. To customize your educational travel experience, go to http://www.cha-tours.com/Tours/CustomPlanner.aspx.

"With these exciting enhancements to our website, comparing and selecting from among our extensive lineup of over 130 educational tours is easier than it's ever been. Plus, teachers now have more flexibility in planning their own custom tours based on their specific educational requirements," says Domenica Falcione, president and co-founder of CHA Educational Tours.
