Our History

Over the past 3 decades, Breakaway Tours has become one of the largest student leisure group tour operators in Canada, taking thousands of travellers annually to destinations around North America. After being in the travel business for 30 years, and providing the ultimate Student Travel experience, Breakaway Tours was acquired by I Love Travel, Canada’s leading family of Student Travel organizations. With the acquisition, Breakaway Tours can now ensure travelers with the best service in the industry!

The best trip of my life! I would highly recommend to anyone. I met so many amazing people and made incredible memories that I’ll remember forever.
— Hailey Venedam, Bowmanville High School (Quebec City March Break 2016)
My overall experience with Breakaway Tours was amazing, from the Staff to the night events. My March Break possibly could not have gotten any better except if it was a week long instead of five days!
— Samiksha, Cardinal Ambrozic (Montreal March Break 2016)
One of the best weekends of my life. All the staff and people made it something I’ll never forget. I can’t wait until next year.
— Hailey McMaster, Samuel Robertson Technical Secondary (Big White 2016)
The Breakaway Staff are amazing. I talked with almost every one of them... very friendly, upbeat and made it a even better time!
— Cameron Stewart, Leaside High School (Tremblant Family Day 2016)
