Coronavirus - Covid-19 Pandemic

Firstly and most importantly, we hope you are and your family are all safe and well and we wish you all the best over these difficult times.

In view of the well documented implications of the unprecedented worldwide Coronavirus pandemic, we want to reassure you that that the safety and well-being of all of our touring groups is very important to us and that we are closely monitoring advice from the Government, Foreign & Commonwealth Office and ABTA.

We have been dealing with the repatriation of clients stuck in Spain and are supporting our staff who are in self isolation.

Our office is now in full lockdown and we have very limited email access but those who are able to work are working around the clock to ensure that we can assist our customers with the most urgent needs and our goal is to ensure that anyone due to travel in the next seven days has been updated on their tour and given a list of options available to them, we will not however have the resources to enter into conversations over these options at this stage.

We will continue to contact tour organisers whose travel plans have been effected.

Best wishes at what is a difficult time for us all and thanks for your understanding,

Isobel is a new member of staff at Burleigh Travel, joining us in June 2018. She contacted our company to do work experience whilst completing her last year of college studying for a diploma in Business Studies. Isobel really enjoyed her work experience with us, particularly as she had been wanting to work in the travel industry for several years. The work experience was successful and she was lucky enough to be offered a full-time job here at Burleigh Travel, in our administration department.

Isobel has participated in a number of sports since childhood, such as Gymnastics, Tae-Kwon-Do, Netball, Football and Swimming. She enjoys watching ice hockey at the Swindon ice-rink as the Wildcats are her favourite team. Whilst working in this industry, Isobel hopes to gain more knowledge about different counties.

Favourite Sports Tour Destination

"My most memorable travel experience had to be either Greece or Bulgaria. I enjoyed Greece because of the see-through blue sea, the views were outstanding and me and my family got to stand on an unerupted volcano! However, I loved Bulgaria’s culture and traditions which was exciting to experience as they are very different to England’s traditions. Also the food in Bulgaria tasted so fresh and it was filled with flavour."
