Travel Places is the travel provider to the UK Contingent to the 24th World Scout Jamboree. They have seven amazing optional travel opportunities covering the USA, Canada and Mexico for IST to add as an additional package to whichever IST Option you select to attend the Jamboree.

Tell me more…
Additional Tours are available to IST taking any of the four IST Options. IST choosing Options B or C will have time between the Jamboree finishing and the Additional Tours starting and will need to make their own way to Washington DC, to join their Additional Tour. Further information about each tour is available at Travel Places website.
All of the additional 5 night tours depart Washington DC on Monday 5th August, after the UK Contingent IST Post Event. Please note that, following your tour, most US–UK return flights operate overnight, so please check your chosen tour itinerary to see how this may impact your travel plans (departure and arrival airports, dates of travel etc.), especially those IST who are considering organising their own travel arrangements to and from the USA.
How do I Book?
Members of the Travel Places team will be attending the IST Weekend in June and will be available throughout the weekend to discuss your travel plans, options and hand you a personal copy of their brochure featuring all of the exciting optional Additional Tour itineraries.
Following the IST Weekend, bookings will open through the Travel Places event portal and IST will have until 30th June to book onto Additional Tours, securing their place with a £100 deposit.
Places are offered on a first come, first served basis with limited spaces available for each tour. Once a tour is full, a waiting list will be opened. Once initial reservations close on the 30th June 2018, Travel Places will make a decision if there is enough interest to run an additional tour. If you have signed up to the waiting list and the tour cannot go ahead you will be offered an alternative tour or a refund of your deposit.
IST will be able to make payment contributions at any time through the Travel Places portal. The final tour balance must be paid by 30th April 2019.
The tours will be based on twin share – two people sharing a room (separate beds). You will be given the opportunity to pick who you would like to share with. However if you do not know who you would like to share with, you will be matched up with someone of the same gender and a similar age, where possible. Additional Tours are organised and managed by Travel Places, who will take responsibility for your booking.
Got more Questions?
Travel Places will be present at the IST weekend to answer any questions you have on optional Additional Tours or check out the FAQs for further information.
Following the IST weekend, prices will become available along with a telephone number for you to speak to the team at Travel Places should you have any further queries. Please note that all bookings will be taken via the Travel Places portal.
Although these optional Additional Tours are available to all UK Contingent IST, they are not organised by the UK Contingent and support and assistance for participants on the Additional Tours switches to Travel Places and their appointed suppliers. Please direct any queries relating to the Additional Tours to Travel Places, as the IST Support team will not be able to answer these.
