Do I need to get permission to go on a sports tour?

This depends very much on obtaining the players’ permission to tour. We will provide you with all the details you need to make the ‘form filling’ as simple as possible. Make sure you allow plenty of time for the process.

Do we need travel insurance?

Yes. We provide travel insurance in partnership with Endsleigh Insurance which offers a policy specifically designed for your tour itinerary.

Do you help with visas?

Your specific passport and visa requirements, as well as other immigration requirements are your responsibility and you should confirm these with the relevant Embassies and/or Consulates. We do not accept any responsibility if you cannot travel because you have not complied with passport, visa or immigration requirements.

What support will I have from Edwin Doran whilst on tour?

A member of our team will be contactable 24/7 via an emergency number which can be found in your final tour pack. See our full list of accreditations to see how we’re committed to providing sports tours that adhere to the highest health and safety standards.
