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,

The Burleigh Travel Team

October Half Term School Sports Tours

Don't let exams stand in the way of your tour!

October Half Term School Sports Tours

The October half term can be the perfect time to take your students away on tour, especially for those who will be sitting exams in the summer term. While the Easter break is often popular with younger teams to tour due to the time off, it can be hard for those with GSCE's and A-Levels to have a break from their studies with exams looming. By organising it in October they are able to have a wonderful experience without impacting their revision.

Ysgol Y Strade School Netball Tour To Canada

We have picked out a range of destinations in Europe that offer you an ideal October half term tour. Convenient, exciting to explore but safer for younger groups, with a range of sports on offer. But we also have a huge range of other destinations such as Australia, South Africa, the Caribbean and Canada. You can find out more about all of our destinations for school sports tours or get in touch with our team.

School Sports Tours to Holland

Holland is one of our most popular European destinations for sports tours. The country is very convenient to reach and its holiday parks offer a safe and secure accommodation option that have plenty on offer to keep your students entertained. The Dutch are also renowned for their hospitality, so you are sure of a very warm welcome. Great day trips include exploring Amsterdam and Efteling Theme Park, one of the oldest theme parks in the world. 

Bristol Cathedral School Hockey Tour To Holland

"We had a fabulous time! The accommodation was perfect; we all went swimming, played mini golf and bowling, hired bikes and made the most of all of the on-sight facilities. We were enjoying ourselves so much that the hockey almost got in the way! While we lost both of our matches the hospitality from the teams was brilliant, and one are even coming to visit us next year. Thank you so much for all your hard work." - Ryde School hockey tour to Holland

School Sports Tours to France

France has a huge number of cities to choose from such as Paris, Lille, Biarritz and Toulon. Similar to Holland it is a very convenient destination to tour to, and has a great deal to explore during your stay. Spend a day walking around Paris to see some of Europe's most iconic landmarks and museums, go white water rafting in the Pyrenees Mountains, take a stadium tour or watch a Ligue 1 or Top 14 match.

School Sports Tours to Ireland

Ireland is a country of outstanding natural beauty and has some wonderful locations to explore. The majority of our tours base themselves in Dublin or Cork. These bustling cities are a joy to explore, but you also have the options to get out into the countryside and coastline. A popular trip is to Blarney Castle to kiss the Blarney Stone, which according to folk lore will bestow the gift of eloquence!

School Sports Tours to Spain

Spain has a wonderfully unique feel due to its historic isolation from the rest of Europe and Moorish influence. Lloret de Mar is one of our most popular destinations. It has some of the best beaches in north-east Spain, and is only a short drive from Barcelona. The cosmopolitan capital of Spain’s Catalonia region, Barcelona is best known for its art and architecture. A visit to Camp Nou is a must on any sports tour to Spain or try to spot all of Gaudí's work in Barcelona

"I just wanted to express my sincere and overwhelming gratitude for what you have done in ensuring that we had an unbelievable tour experience. We chose you after we had an awesome time in Dublin last year and I am extremely thankful that we did. The communication throughout the planning process was faultless and always friendly and amicable; leaving me feeling reassured on many occasions. The location, hotel and coach transfers were all perfect. You have helped create memories that will last a lifetime!" - Park School football tour to Spain
