Within the ITC Travel Group – parent company to Western & Oriental – are three top-end sports tour operators, specialising in holidays to the world's finest fixtures.
Established in 1989 after the ITC founder indulged his love for cricket in the Caribbean, ITC Sports Travel is a high-end holiday provider offering inspiring and bespoke itineraries and tours to the world's top sporting events; from the England cricket team’s Tests in the Caribbean, Australia and South Africa, to the Formula One in Abu Dhabi and Monaco, the rugby in Singapore and Italy, to the golf in the USA and UK.
ITC Sports Travel is renowned for the extra details and indulgences it creates around each sports tour, such as State of Play evenings with former international players and professional pundits, and private excursions away from the stadiums to see each destination's top attractions.
In 2016 Spectate Sports Travel was launched to offer affordable sports holidays and sports team travel as a sister brand to Western & Oriental. The Spectate team draws on more than 20 years' experience taking clients to the most exceptional destinations to watch their favourite fixtures.
Also within the ITC Travel Group name is Horse Racing Abroad (HRA), a specialist horse racing holiday provider which creates tailormade travel around the world's finest events; such as the Dubai World Cup and the Breeders' Cup. The highlight in the HRA calendar is the Qatar Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe in Paris, where the tour operator has a private Pavilion Grandstand at Longchamp.
