We are aware that the UK Government advised UK Schools on 12th March against undertaking any International Schools Travel. The entire Tourism industry is seeking urgent guidance from the Government and ABTA on the consequences of the advice and length of time that this advice was intended to cover. We fully understand the concerns schools may have regarding any forthcoming tours and we will be in contact with all our customers as soon as a factual set of responses can be given. While we await that support and guidance, we also recommend that schools review their insurance policies with their provider, in case the outcome of the guidance determines that our normal cancellation terms and conditions would apply.

We thank you for your patience at this time.

We have been taking teams away to compete, have fun and explore other cultures since 1974. In that time, we’ve amassed a huge bank of knowledge and an unrivalled network of contacts that we use to create unforgettable sports trips. Our friendly front-line staff are touring veterans with a passion for their chosen sports. Their on-the-ground knowledge helps teams get the most out of their time away, whether that’s playing perfectly matched opponents or finding the best local restaurant for an end-of-tour meal

Well-matched fixtures

We build bespoke school sports tours to meet the specific needs of your group. So whatever your team’s level, they’ll play matches that stretch their capabilities and develop their skills, yet allow them a chance to shine. With overseas partners that are legendary ex-sporting internationals, Edwin Doran Sports Tours can offer access to world-renowned venues as well as grass-roots school clubs.

Unforgettable excursions

Making time to experience the highlights of your destination is an essential part of most of our tours. You can choose from our list of exciting excursions to let off steam, relax or delve into the local culture. You could zip line in the forest canopy after a cricket match in St Lucia, or see the awesome Batu caves after a hockey match in Kuala Lumpur.

Rewarding home stays

One of the key factors that makes us the market leading sports travel company is our easy expertise in linking up team members with suitable home stays. Socialising, eating together and enjoying excursions with your hosts enriches your trip, so you don’t just soak up the locals’ sporting style, but get a real sense of their way of life.

Support and safety

The safety of everyone on our tours is our top priority. We require that all accommodation, transport and excursions suppliers meet our high safety standards and we offer round-the-clock assistance in the event of any incident. We help you promote your tour to increase the sign-up rate with materials and presentations to parents. Although we’re a small company with a personal service, we’re backed by TUI Travel PLC, the world’s largest leisure travel group, so we can offer unrivalled financial security. All of our tours are IATA, ATOL and ABTA bonded, protecting your group against unforeseen events.
