Love sport and love to travel? What better, then, than to combine a trip abroad with the chance to see live cricket, a Grand Prix or world-class tennis.

ITC Sports Travel says

For more than 30 years, we have specialised in creating the very best sporting breaks so you can enjoy the thrill of live cricket, rugby, Formula One, horse-racing, golf and tennis around the world.

We’re passionate about sport and each of our breaks includes so much more than simply the best tickets to world-class sporting events. We add in opportunities to meet leading sports stars, social gatherings, gourmet hospitality, luxury accommodation, all transfers and flights.

What makes these breaks so special, too, is the guarantee that you will be amongst like-minded enthusiasts and an ITC Sports Travel host to ensure everything runs smoothly.

Our Formula One breaks range from Barcelona and Bahrain to Singapore and most points in between. As well as grandstand seats, we’ll also take you for a pit lane walkabout, a prized experience not to be missed.

The Six Nations, Dubai and Hong Kong Rugby Sevens and England’s summer tours are amongst the rugby tours on offer. Premium match tickets are included, of course, and we can arrange spa days or other experiences for “other halves”. We can also extend your stay to create a longer holiday.

Working with our sister company, Horse Racing Abroad, we offer the best possible range of breaks to see some of the world’s most prestigious horse races, from the Qatar Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe to the Dubai World Cup. Our trip to the Irish Guineas includes a unique visit to the traditional Coolmore Stud.

We also arrange flexible breaks to enjoy the world’s the major tennis championships and golf tournaments, including the chance to play a few rounds yourself on championship courses.

In a nutshell, our team will create the best experience possible. Discover more about our world-class sporting breaks – whether it’s for yourself or perhaps as the perfect gift for a loved one or client.
