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

A rugby tour on the beatutiful North-East coast of Italy


Lichfield RFC U16 Tour to Italy

Lichfield RFC U16s took a 4 night tour over to Lido Di Jesilo, Italy. The purpose built beach resort attracts thousands of people looking to catch some sun. This makes it a perfect destination for a rugby tour.  The 10 mile long yellow sand beach is the main attraction of the area. With a pavement that runs along the back of the beach, for those that don’t like to get sand in their shoes. 

The team assembled at Manchester airport on the Sunday morning. After a short flight over to Italy the team boarded the coach to get to the hotel where they will have the rest of the day free to use the hotels facilities. 

On the Monday after breakfast the team had a free day to explore the local area. The team took this free day to take a day trip to Venice where it was one of the highlights of their tour. Exploring the historic city and all that Venice has to offer.

The following morning was free to allow the group time to enjoy some of the hotels facilities, which included a private beach and swimming pool. After lunch they were picked up and taken to their first tour match, a game against local side Valsugana RFC. The players put in a great performance and sealed a victory over their hosts. They commented on the fantastic facilities of the club, and it was an amazing experience for the boys to play at a 10,000 capacity stadium.

On the Wednesday the team had the morning free to relax, before setting off in the afternoon for their fixture against FTGI Euganei ASD. The hospitality they received was "better than anyone could have expected" with fireworks, a red carpet and national anthems.
