A new name in sports travel, Destination Sport Experiences, was launched in the market this week. The new operation aims to welcome athletes who want to… “Take part in the best cycling, running and triathlon events around the world. “
The new sports travel operation was created by Portman Travel Group, which has made strides in the sports travel industry in recent years by launching Clarity Sports, Sportsbreaks.com and Amaze.
Destination Sports Experiences is led by Managing Director Brendan Fox, who alongside his team has decades of experience in the global sports travel industry.
Destination Sport Experiences will offer travel packages and guaranteed entry to long-distance marathons, cyclosportives and triathlons around the world, as well as VIP access to many top professional cycling events, starting with L’Etape du Tour 2022.
The Etape du Tour is a cyclosportive event organized with mass participation which allows amateur cyclists to cover the same route as a stage of the Tour de France. Taking place on Sunday July 10, 2022, it will replicate stage 12 of the Tour de France 2022 starting from Briançon and ending in Alpe d’Huez.
Destination Sport Experiences offers guaranteed entry to L’Etape du Tour as a Gold Tour Operator, as well as airport transfers from Geneva and accommodation in Briançon and Alpe d’Huez.
Speaking of the launch, Brendan Fox said, “We couldn’t be more excited to launch Destination Sport Experiences to the public. As you would expect, a lot of hard work has been done behind the scenes, and continues to occur, to ensure our guests have a choice of world class events to choose from.
“Destination Sport Experiences will provide athletes with incredible opportunities to participate in some of the best events and experiences sport has to offer, while taking the stress out of finding travel and accommodation.”
Destination Sport Experiences is fully ABTA-linked with an ATOL license, in line with the consumer financial protection requirements of the UK Travel Act, and will launch travel products for new 2022 events in the coming weeks.
