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 in order to keep our touring teams updated on their forthcoming travel plans.

We have been dealing with the repatriation of clients stuck in Spain and are now arranging for staff to work from home together with supporting those who are in self isolation, so as you will appreciate our staff resources are fairly limited.

We are however working around the clock to ensure that we can assist our customers with the most urgent needs, and are focusing on groups who are due to depart in the next few days and then in date of travel order and we ask for your patience to enable us to achieve this.

We will be contacting tour organisers of tours who’s travel plans are likely to be affected, so please assist us where possible by not calling our offices as we will contact you if your travel plans are affected.

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

Assured Members of the School Travel Forum

Burleigh Travel is an Assured Member of the School Travel Forum (STF).

A very important factor when deciding who to travel with is the health and safety systems that are in place when travelling with young people. The School Travel Forum is the benchmark for these practices and as an assured member you can be secure in the knowledge that this has been done and that you can book your trip in confidence and reduce the amount of external paperwork required by yourself.

If you plan to book with a company who is not a member you would lose this security and checks would need to be done to assess what health and safety procedures they have in place to protect your pupils.

The STF was established to help schools and students travel with confidence, so you know that when you book a sports tour with Burleigh Travel you can be secure in the knowledge that we:

  • Understand and facilitate the needs of educational travel.
  • Have effective Safety Management Systems in place, specifically focused on travelling with young students.
  • Offer fair terms and condition and the best financial security.

Stf New 1The STF is much more than a simple membership organisation, all Assured Members of the STF are required to adhere to a rigorous Code of Practice and Safety Management Standards and be audited each year by Argent Health & Safety, the UK’s leading Health and Safety Consultancy specialising in Travel, to ensure continuing compliance.

This means that you can book your trip with confidence, meet your due diligence and reduce the amount of External Provider paperwork necessary.

STF membership is the benchmark for good school tour providers; consequently it is an Awarding Body for the prestigious Learning Outside the Classroom Quality Badge that commends and acknowledges the benefits of activities away from the classroom for young peoples personal development and we are very pleased that our sports tours have been awarded this prestigious badge.
