Quality control and health and safety
We operate a stringent supplier selection process and all our hotels, transport providers and other suppliers are checked by us and we will only work with reputable suppliers who operate in accordance with local laws.

We provide excellent value for money with our running and cycling tours. You will be hard pressed to find a better price and holiday quality anywhere else. The prices that you see on our website include all charges for the included elements as per the travel package like hotel taxes for example. Our 24hr open access online booking system shows you live availability so you get immediate confirmation. We will not charge you extra due to the Euro or Dollar exchange rate, fuel surcharges on flights if you book them through us. Those costs will be borne by Sports Travel International.
Join our group
We welcome all nationalities across our running and cycling events. Our aim is to take care of all the event related logistics so you can focus on realising your goals from setting a PB to just having a great time with some like-minded people. You can be as independent as you want to be. To ensure that you get the most out of the event our staff provide welcome meetings and/ or race briefings on many of our tours. These meetings also let you meet the other people in our group so our tours are ideal for anybody from single travellers to groups.
We encourage single travellers to join our tours. Rooms for single occupancy are available on all our tours but we also offer the opportunity to book a ‘Twin to Share’ option which means that we pair you up with another athlete of the same sex so you can enjoy the event without having to pay the single occupancy supplement.
Staff training and experience
We are proud to have an experienced, well trained and dedicated team working for us both in our office as well as on our events. All staff are first aid trained and drivers have received advanced driver training and many of our staff are multi-lingual. Our staff are committed to providing the very best customer service and to ensure that our customers have a brilliant time with us.
