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,

During their senior rugby tour to Lille, the players of Rochford Hundred Rugby Club Veterans were able to visit Lille's historic features, and experience the mix of culture and modern living, combined with the typical strong tradition for rugby in France.

The location of Lille near to the Belgium border means that Brussels is also a sightseeing option, allowing tourists to visit two destinations in one tour should they wish. Upon arrival in France after the short journey across the English Channel, the players were soon frequenting the bars and restaurants in central Lille; just hours after leaving their rugby club in Rochford.
