It’s been another big summer of sport, with the World Cup in Russia having been the standout event that has enthralled people across the globe.

The event also provided thousands of people with the opportunity to visit a country that wouldn’t usually have featured on the top of the list for a summer holiday.

Although the main focus was understandably on watching a match, visitors to the World Cup were also able to discover some of the various delights that Russia has to offer – with many afterwards expressing surprise over the whole experience of visiting a country that isn’t renowned for its tourist scene.

Whilst they don’t come much bigger than the World Cup, there are numerous sporting events that take place across the globe every year so we thought we’d put together a list of some of those you might want to try and visit as part of your annual overseas adventures…


If you are a fan of the beautiful game then there are plenty of places that you might want to consider for a trip to foreign shores.

In some cases, a trip might be based around the activities of your favourite club but a city break is something that will hold huge appeal for those who simply love the sport.

The likes of Barcelona, Madrid, Amsterdam, Rome, Lisbon and Munich are home to some of the most famous clubs in world football and you can easily factor in a trip to iconic stadiums like the Nou Camp, the Bernabeu or the Stadio Olimpico whilst embracing the sights.

Many of those stadiums feature museums that tell the stories of the respective clubs that call them home, which are sure to interest general fans who want to factor a bit of footie into the time away from home.

You don’t even need to head for somewhere that is famous for football either. The island of Madeira for example isn’t known for housing one of the powerhouse clubs but is the birthplace of Cristiano Ronaldo and houses a museum dedicated to the Juventus forward.

If you want to book a city break during the coming season around a big match in one of the big European cities then give us a call…


Perhaps one of the top sports that people head overseas to enjoy themselves is golf, and you only have to see some of the options that are available to players to see why.

Whilst there are plenty of top quality courses on British shores, there is something special about the chance to tee off in picturesque surroundings whilst the sun beats down before heading for the pool or the beach later in the day to relax.

The Algarve is one area that is particularly popular with Brits who want to enjoy a golf break overseas but is far from the only option, with the likes of Spain, the Canary Islands and France also well worth considering if you only want to go short haul.

Head further afield and you open up the opportunity to sample some of the best courses in the USA, the Far East, the Caribbean and Australia – the choice really is yours…

We can offer a range of different destinations where you can easily fit a round of golf into your holiday – simply get in touch with your requirements and we’ll do the rest…


Motor Racing is another global sport that you can easily factor in to your annual holiday, with big name races taking place around the world every.

If you love the glitz and glamour that comes with Formula 1 then you might like the idea of a spending a weekend in Monte Carlo when the Grand Prix is in town, or might fancy booking a trip to Barcelona when the Spanish GP is on down the road at the Circuit de Catalunya.

Heading further afield, the bright lights of Singapore or Abu Dhabi are well worth a visit in their own right – but even more so when you could also add in a trip to one of the flyaway events towards the end of the season.

A motorsport themed trip doesn’t have to focus on F1 however. You might fancy a trip to France during the Le Mans 24 Hours or fancy taking a break in the USA during the month of May when the Indianapolis 500 is in full swing.

Alternatively, there is the chance for two-wheeled fans to follow MotoGP or World Superbikes to the far-flung corners of the globe.

One of the joys of cycling is that you can hop on your bike and head off to explore whenever you like and that freedom can also apply when you are away on holiday.

Perhaps you want to take your own wheels with you to explore the likes of Lanzarote or Gran Canaria or perhaps you are looking for a holiday where you can hire a bike if you wish to explore at leisure.

No matter whether you want to ride around the countryside or head off the beaten track, there are countless options available where you can quite literally get on your bike.

Alternatively, you might even want to try and plan your holiday around one of the major cycling events that takes place every year – like the Tour de France, the Giro d’Italia and the Vuelta.

If you’re a fan of cycling, then you can easily factor it into your holiday and it doesn’t have to be anywhere near as difficult as you might imagine either.

Should you want to take your bike along on your trip or are seeking a trip to the best cycling destinations around, give us a call and see what we can do…

Horse Racing:

Who doesn’t love a day at the races? Well imagine if you were to swap Glorious Goodwood or Aintree for somewhere a little more exotic as part of your holiday…

Horse Racing is just as popular overseas as it is back home in the UK and there are various top international events that you could base your holiday around – both within Europe and further afield.

The Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe in Paris in October is one of the biggest events on the calendar and can easily be twinned with a break in the French capital.

Head further afield and there are events such as the Melbourne Cup in Australia, the Dubai World Cup and the famous Kentucky Derby for anyone travelling long haul who has a desire to catch some action at the same time.

Fan of the horses? We can help you source the best accommodation around the big meeting that’s taking place whilst you are away. Just get in touch with your requirements…

Of course there are plenty of other sporting events that you might want to check out whilst overseas, ranging from cricket tests to the major tennis tournaments, and athletics events to rugby matches.

Head for the USA and you might even fancy taking a trip to see the stars of the WWE in action.

Should you fancy hitting the slopes to go skiing, then our partner Get Skiing is the place to go in order to sort a break in the snow.
