Description

Spain and France are both among the best European countries to enjoy a sport tour. Both countries have a long rooted sport tradition as well as a wide offer of tourist must see spots and cities.

The two countries are only separated by the Pyrenees and the social, economic, cultural and sport exchanges between both countries are every day more frequent, especially between the regions closer to the border.

At Basketmon we offer packages for combined tours between the two countries. Enjoy the mediterranean sea, the atlantic coast and the Pyrenees on both sides of the border.

With our combined tours our clients have the chance to enjoy sport tours visiting Barcelona, Carcasonne, Toulousse, Biarritz, and San Sebastian, among other cities, on a single tour.

Accommodation and meals

We have a large portfolio of collaborating lodgements for all budgets, ranging from youth hostels to five star hotels. The meals are usually taken in the very lodgements facilities. Occasionally some meals may be taken elsewhere as either for facilitating the logistics of the tour or under the client’s request.

Practice sessions and friendly fixtures vs local opposition

We arrange the bookings in the best facilities of the chosen destination for practices and training sessions of our clients.
On the other hand, we also organize friendly fixtures against local teams of a similar competitive level. All fixtures count with qualified referees and assistants.

Excursions and visits to spots of interest

The excursions and visits to spots of interest, after the sporting activities, are the second ingredient needed for a sport tour.

Whether it is attending to a professional sport fixture, a guided cultural visit to a spot of interest, or enjoying free time in a city or village of the region, we will arrange it all after the client’s choice.

Tour manager 24h/7d

We provide a tour manager that accompanies the team all along the tour, from tha arrival at the airport to the departure. The tourmanager is bilingual and will coordinate the whole logistics and will help the group at all times.

The transport companies we collaborate with have a wide range of buses of different sizes, from 16 seat mini buses to double roof 85 seat buses.

Which airport should we arrive at?

Depending on the itinerary of the tour: Barcelona or Girona, Toulouse, Bilbao, Biarritz, Nice or Madrid are the usual airports used by our clients to take part in our Combined Sport Tours Spain-France.

Insurance

All the participants in our sport tour must have travel insurance. And in the case of the players they also have to be insured on medical attentions in case of injuries during the sporting activities.

Such insurance is obligatory. We work with several insurance companies but we recommend to hire any insurance in the country of origin.

Other services

We arrange and organize any activity demanded by our clients, besides the very services offered in our packages.

Our combined tours Spain-France are, as all our sport tours, tailor made and the length of them and destinations are adapted to our clients’ needs and wishes.
