Rugby Tours for Armed Forces Teams

Rugby Tours for rugby teams from the Armed Forces of the British Military were amongst the first ever tours arranged by Burleigh Travel. We have since organised tours for Military teams to the worlds best rugby destinations, making this highlight of the rugby calendar, a memorable escape for many forces rugby teams. As such, our knowledge, experience and understanding of how to approach the organisation of Forces tours is unsurpassed and we would be delighted to be able to utilise this expertise and provide the best possible tour for your next Military rugby tour.

We will select accommodation specifically for your group; be it a hostel in the heart of the action for those working to a lower budget, hotels centrally located to the areas nightlife, or a hotel on the outskirts of a destination with excellent transport links for those looking for a quieter environment. We can provide a perfect match for your requirements and group composition.

Our rugby background and extensive contacts in some of the most hospitable rugby clubs around the rugby world will allow us to arrange the most suitable fixtures for your team. Be it a social end of season tour, where the rugby is merely a break from the drinking, an entertaining tournament or festival or a competitive pre-season test, we will use our knowledge, experience and long established contacts to find suitable opposition and ensure you achieve what you want from your tour matches. We will also happily work with you to integrate matches with Defence Force, or Military teams in your destination of choice should you have established links.

Our team have personally visited a number of the rugby destinations available to you and will be more than happy to provide detailed information and answer any questions you may have.

For that little something extra we can suggest and arrange those special tour moments, be it climbing the Sydney Harbour Bridge in Australia, visiting the Battle Fields of Northern Natal in South Africa or the War Cemeteries of Belgium and France.

Military Sports Tours

Our first Military sports tours left our shores way back in 1998 with REME RFC visiting Portugal and RAF Cottesmore RFC travelling to Spain. Since then we have organised numerous tours for military teams and have built up a vast amount of knowledge about what is required to ensure they run smoothly; both during the lead up to the tour and whilst you are away.
