Will Brexit Affect My School Sports Tour?

In the wake of the results of the EU referendum, we understand that group leaders may be concerned about the effect on their school sports tour .

However, there should be no real effect in the short term and we are certainly expecting tours to proceed as normal.

In fact, if you’re currently in the process of arranging your next school sports tour, you’ll be pleased to know that now is actually a great time to book! That’s because *we can guarantee your quote if you are able to book by 31st July 2016.

Not in the position to book by then? Your quote will expire on 31st July, as per normal. We will then be able to reassess it when you get back to school in September. Unfortunately, because of the current climate, we’re not able to guarantee prices over the long summer period, and your requote will be subject to exchange rates at that time.

So, in short, if you are in a position to make your booking, we really do recommend that you do so by 31st July!*

Any questions about this, or anything to do with your school sports tour? Please don’t hesitate to contact us .

The Prime Minister has stated that there will be no initial change in the way people travel. Travellers are free to move between the UK and the EU as they were yesterday, European Health Insurance Cards remain valid and regulations such as Air Passenger Rights remain in place. People due to travel this summer will see little changes to their holiday. Once the UK formally notifies the EU of its intention to leave, the remaining Member States will have up to two years to offer the UK a deal for a future trading relationship and during this period holidaymakers will not see any immediate changes. i.e. trips for which deposits have been received, along with a completed booking form and passenger names list if travelling by air.
