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

Senior Rugby Tour to Algarve

Their rugby tour to Albufeira, on Portugal's famous Algarve coast, allowed the rugby players of the RAF Rugby Club to play rugby in an area justly famous for its endless expanse of clean sandy beaches. Their accommodation was ideally situated for access to the ‘The Strip’; a mile long street of bars, restaurants and discos and within walking distance of the beach.

Albufeira Portugal

On the pitch, the group participated in the XVII Tourneio Rugby International Loule complete with an evening meal put on by the host club Loule Rugby Club.

Rugby Tours Abroad

During the days where no match was played, they had the opportunity to indulge in one of the many excellent golf courses or a trip to a local waterpark or simply relax at the hotel pool or nearby beach.
