Athletes targeted by new Portman Travel Group brand

Athletes wanting to participate in the best cycling, running and triathlon events across the world are being targeted by a new Portman Travel Group business.

Destination Sport Experiences will sit alongside Clarity Sports, Sportsbreaks.com and Amaze within the group’s sports travel portfolio.

Travel packages and “guaranteed entry” to marathons, cyclosportives and long distance triathlons around the world will be offered, together with VIP hospitality access to many top professional cycling events, starting with L’Etape du Tour 2022. 

L’Étape du Tour is an organised mass participation cyclosportive event that allows amateur cyclists to race over the same route as the Tour de France stage.

Taking place on July 10, 2022, it will replicate Stage 12 of the 2022 Tour de France starting in Briancon and finishing in Alpe d’Huez. 

The company is offering entry to the event alongside airport transfers from Geneva and accommodation. 

Destination Sport Experiences is Abta bonded with an Atol and will be launching travel products to new 2022 events over the next few weeks.

Managing director Brendan Fox (pictured) said: “As you’d expect, a lot of hard work has gone on behind the scenes, and continues to happen, to ensure our customers have an array of world-class events available to choose from. 

“Destination Sport Experiences will provide athletes with incredible opportunities to take part in some of the best events and experiences that sport has to offer, while removing the stress from searching for travel and accommodation. We want to encourage everyone to do something extraordinary.”
