Black Opal Travel Group Don't follow the crowd.

Update from the Black Opal Team


With the easing of lockdown in the UK, we thought it was a perfect time to reach out and let you know what the Black Opal team have been doing during the last 3 months and how we are planning to get you back out to your favourite countries very soon.

Although this time has been very worrying for the future of the travel industry we were determined to stay positive and look to the future. We have continued to plan our future sports tours for 2021 to include The British and Irish Lions in South Africa and The Ashes in Australia. We have been in constant communication with the official bodies for these events and all planning has been made flexible until we have official confirmation of the dates etc.

Thank you to all of you who have already expressed interest in these tours, we will keep you updated with any future developments.

If you would like to express any interest in any of our upcoming tours please contact us

One exciting success to come out of our time in lockdown is the At Home Social webcasts. We wanted a way to keep in touch with our client base but also provide some much needed entertainment while our favourite events have been cancelled. 

The At Home Social provides a great insight into some of the best sporting events from some of the legends who played them.

We have some exciting topics planned for July so keep a lookout for those. 

If you want to catch up on any of our past At Home Socials you can find them here 

We would like to thank all of our clients who have supported us in this uncertain and troubling time, whether that has been by joining us on our At Home Social webcasts, registering your interest for future sports tours or holiday ideas, referring us to a friend or just messages of good wishes. We really appreciate the warmth and support we have received and it has helped to keep us all positive and looking beyond the pandemic. As a small and personal business, family values are at our core and many of our clients are more like friends, especially those who we have been out on tour with. We can not wait to see you all again soon.

We are so pleased to see countries opening their borders again with France and Spain being the first European countries allowing UK travellers back into their country with no quarantine restrictions. We are also so pleased to see some of our favourite further afield destinations welcoming travellers or announcing plans for the borders to be open within the month of July. These include The Maldives, Dubai, Tanzania and many areas of the South Caribbean.

These positive steps are shining the light at the end of the tunnel and as soon as we can be sure we can safely get you back out on your holiday adventures we will begin to take bookings again.

For those of you who are unsure whether you will want to take your holidays abroad this year, we are very pleased to have introduced UK cottages to our accommodation offering. If you would like to know more about a luxury UK holiday experience you can contact Alex on

We are still working every day and will happily take any emails or calls with any questions or booking enquiries you may have.

We would like to take another opportunity to wish you all well, let’s continue to look after ourselves and each other, keep safe and most of all, keep dreaming of travelling the world again.

Best Wishes 

All of the team at Black Opal Travel Group
