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

Gloucester head coach Dean Ryan is relishing the prospect of facing French powerhouses Biarritz, Welsh giants Cardiff and Italian side Calvisano in the 2008/09 Heineken Cup.


Fixture Focus: Gloucester RFC’s Visit to Biarritz RFCHeineken Cup Biarritz

On the weekend of the 23rd/24th/25th January, the Cherry and Whites will travel to the unique rugby climate of the French Basque region to take on the European rugby giants Biarritz Olympique RFC. To experience the electric atmosphere and hopefully witness Gloucester RFC topple the 2005/06 European Heineken Cup winners, why not travel with Burleigh Travel Supporters Tours for a weekend to remember.

While Gloucester RFC have never faced Biarritz in the Heineken Cup before, Dean Ryan, the Gloucester RFC head coach is quoted as saying: 

“Biarritz are a hugely powerful and organised side, have a history in the competition that would be the envy of a lot of clubs and contested a final only three seasons ago. Their threat, particularly at home, is an obvious one.”

“They have a tremendous pedigree and their home record is as good as anything in the competition. It will be a huge examination for us but one we will relish as we develop as a side.”

“Both games will generate huge interest from the supporters, the rivalry is fierce and I think it will be a great advert for the competition.”
