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,

Lucy Huggett Profile


Lucy joined Burleigh Travel in July 2005 as PA to the Director, Chris Kite.  After having two children over the last six years and two years of maternity leave Lucy now works part-time dealing with Credit Control and finance within the administration office.  Lucy is responsible for all payments due to Burleigh Travel.  You may receive emails from her from time to time reminding you a payment is due.  She also deals with other office duties.  Before joining Burleigh Travel she worked for The Bank of England for 8 years where she gained her financial background. 

Lucy has never been on a sports tour, but she has visited some of our touring destinations on familiarisation trips, such as Gibraltar and Biarritz.  In her (very little) spare time Lucy enjoys going for days out with the kids, running, socialising and holidays.        

Favourite Sports Tour Destination

"Biarritz is my favourite tour destination.  It has great shopping, good bars and restaurants, a beach and a warm climate at the right time of year." 

Most Memorable Travel Experience

"My most memorable holiday was to South Africa, staying on the edge of Kruger National Park and seeing the hippos in the river just yards from our lodge."
