Matt Taylor Profile


Matt has recently joined Burleigh Travel and is looking forward to working in the sports travel industry and having the opportunity to discover new destinations around the world.  He has spent the last 3 winter seasons working for a major tour operator as a chalet host in the French Alps.  Early starts and late nights were offset by the opportunity to be able to ski every day and Matt is now an accomplished and passionate freestyle skier.  Matt returned to the UK each summer to work in a local sports and leisure centre where his customer service skills were put to good use. 

Matt’s passion for travel was ignited when he joined a World Challenge expedition to Malaysia whilst at school.  After completing his A levels, he then embarked on a 4 month world tour, when he had the opportunity to go on safari, swim with dolphins, sky dive and walk on glaciers.

Matt has always been a keen sportsman, playing for his local football team from under 8 to under 16.  He has played cricket since the age of 8 and represented his school at football, athletics, cross country, hockey and badminton. Currently he still enjoys playing cricket, football, going to the gym, playing golf and of course participates in a number of winter sports.
