The British Educational Travel Association (BETA) was established in 2003 as a not for profit membership association and now represents some of the biggest and best-known businesses in the youth, student and educational travel industry.
Since then we have pro-actively created a platform and network for businesses engaged within the sector, to meet, network and trade. BETA’s role is to represent and co-ordinate the interests of this fast growing and dynamic industry.
In 2019 our members served over 38 million young travellers wanting to study, tour or work.
Our two long-term strategic aims are:
- to highlight the enormous value of youth, student and educational travel to, from and within the UK
- to create commercial opportunities between buyers and sellers of youth related products
