Advice and information

Confirmation of the Visit – Full written confirmation of the arrangements agreed between us will be sent at the time of booking. When the programme has been agreed we’ll send a printed copy of it (together with travel and hotel details) to you and to your visitor.

Travel Arrangements and Payments – All your visitor’s travel arrangements will be sorted out by us and we’ll handle the payment of fees and expenses, as agreed, by sending you a single invoice after the visit. (The only thing we ever ask you to do is book overnight accommodation if it’s needed – for this local knowledge is vital…)

How Much Will The Visit Cost?


The service offered by Speaking of Books is included in the cost of the visit. The fees and expenses of your visitor will vary from individual to individual according to who they are, what they’re offering and the amount of travel involved.

Fees start from £475 + travel expenses. VAT is additional to all prices quoted, but many schools can claim this back.
