ACTS takes time to research each vendor, restaurant and hotel. There are a set of guidelines we go through when choosing places to include on our tour program that provide our participants with a high level of quality and safety. We look for hotels that have high standards of safety and request that all pay-movies be disabled. We also choose motorcoaches that provide trained drivers, safe and comfortable equipment, and we follow all government guidelines with regards to motorcoach hours and procedures.
Education and Travel Program Leaders
Our professional staff of Program Leaders have been background checked, licensed and trained to always be aware of their surroundings as they lead your group. Among other things, they will provide their groups with safety instructions, evacuation plans and make safe choices when crossing streets, using walkways, and unloading coaches.
At the beginning of the tour, our ACTS Program Leader will provide the group with an orientation that includes a number of important safety announcements. They will remind students of the importance of being in groups and with chaperones. Violation of that can be grounds for a student being returned home.
Each program participant is provided with an ACTS badge and lanyard that must be worn throughout the entire tour. It provides each person with our toll-free number and allows a participant to access our ACTS office and response personnel 24 hours a day.
Each ACTS student program provides a number of chaperones for every so many of students registered. The exact number varies with each program and the organizer, but always provides a responsible ratio of adults that will be assigned to groups of students.
ACTS hires bonded and licensed security chaperones to ensure the safety and security of our program participants at night in the hotels we use. These chaperones will monitor your hallways making sure that you have a good night of rest from evening until dawn the next day.
Doctors on Call
ACTS has worked to provide doctors on call that can come to our hotels, if necessary, to provide medical care. This service is available at the major cities that we visit. Your EPL is also provided with emergency contact information to hospitals, clinics, etc.
Your Money is Safe Too!
Choosing to make the investment to participate in a travel program is a decision that many take seriously. They want to know that their hard-earned money is going to be protected and not lost prior to experiencing all the program has to offer them. American Christian Tours takes this investment seriously. We are pleased to offer solid financial protection.
