Financial Protection

When booking with MasterClass Sports Tours you are fully financially protected through ABTA and ATOL and safe in the knowledge that we are backed by Travelopia – The world’s largest collection of specialist travel brands.

Our staff have worked hard during the pandemic to ensure our clients were treated the best way possible and we have either helped them claim on insurance, rebooked them for future years or refunded them if FCDO advice prevented them from travelling.

Don’t take our word for it but see what some of our clients have said about us:

"It was a pleasure to work closely with Masterclass to arrange an overseas sports tour in Holland for school.   Their professionalism & knowledge made the booking process clear and concise.  Sadly due to Covid-19 our tour was cancelled.  Masterclass continued to communicate regularly at this unprecedented time and assisted us in recovering all monies paid, putting our minds at ease.  I will definitely recommend Masterclass to others, and I look forward to working with the team again in the future."

Shrewsbury Academy

"As a school, we could not recommend Masterclass highly enough. When I speak to students as they leave school in Year 11 or Year 13 they will always stress that their sports tour was a highlight of their school careers. From an organisers point of view, the process of booking is clear and streamlined, with someone always on the end of the phone to answer any questions. When booking, I felt that they were flexible and always listened to exactly what we wanted and tailored their package to our needs. We will be touring with them again in 2021."
