Spectate says

Formerly known as ITC Sports Travel, we have more than 30 years’ experience crafting the perfect sporting holiday.

Each and every one of our holidays is completely bespoke and utterly luxurious. Whether you’re heading out to follow England on a cricket tour, enjoying a weekend at the Formula 1 or jetting off Stateside for a bucket list adventure, our Sports Sales Consultants will ensure every element of your Spectate holiday will be nothing short of exceptional.

It’s not just about premium tickets (though they come as standard). It’s about personalised holidays to dream destinations with your every wish, whim and request taken care of. We’ll arrange private transfers by road, water or air. We’ll organise all your restaurant reservations, tours and ultra-luxe excursions so all you need to do is arrive and witness sporting history.

Our team lives and breathes all things sport and has travelled to countless sporting events around the world, so we really are the experts. Our Sales Consultants can offer first-hand insight and insider tips to make your holiday the perfect experience.

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.

We’re very proud of our experience in offering 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. Then there’s boxing, US sports, motorsports and more; in short, tell us what’s on your sporting bucket list and we’ll take you there, in ultimate style.
