ON YOUR MARKS, GET SET, GO FOR BETTER
WIth the acquisition of Ventur Travel, Gray Dawes Group has created a winning formula for specialist sports travel management.
Do you want to be on our team?
Operating in elite and representative level sport since 1984, Gray Dawes Sports provides the ultimate in sports travel services.
Sports travel is like no other. We get that. Whether it’s mastering the complexity of arranging travel for dozens of umpires to cover county cricket over an entire summer’s worth of fixtures, or creating the perfect Caribbean holiday for the Premier League’s most demanding striker, we’ve got it covered.
We provide both team and individual athlete competition, out of season tours and training camp travel, as well as providing comprehensive business travel solutions to the lead organisation – bringing all travel procurement under one endeavour and maximising buying power, efficiency and visibility of costs.
WE HAVE EVERYTHING
IN THE LOCKER
Coordinating match officials’ itineraries and travel movements can be a logistical challenge. It’s a challenge we relish.
Ensuring your team arrives in peak condition to not only play, but to win, is what we see as our responsibility. It’s all part of the Gray Dawes Sports service.
A winning team is influenced and motivated by many things, not least the loved ones of those involved. We care for the ones you care about.
With a sensitive respect for the needs of less able-bodied sportsmen and women, our travel consultants ensure all the right boxes are ticked to meet their demands.
Pre-season Training Tours
We’ll get you off to a winning start by handling all your pre-season training tours and itineraries, so you can focus 100% on preparing your team, not your travel.
Moving your legions of travelling supporters safely and efficiently around the world takes tenacity, experience and understanding. We have all three.
VIP & Concierge Services
When the game is won and it’s time for a little R&R, our luxury leisure travel consultants will custom create the perfect solution to care for your sporting stars.
Meetings & Events
We believe that experience is everything, both yours and ours. Our MICE Team delivers a creative combination of logistics, administration, inventive flair and negotiation.
Promotional & Sponsorship Tours
Managing the travel of people is one thing, coordinating the global movement of promotional activities and kit is something else. We do both, perfectly.
EXPERIENCE IS EVERYTHING
SPORTS TRAVEL CONSULTANCY
Knowing the best hotels that are closest to the stadium is one thing. Understanding if they’re suitable for your player’s unique demands is quite another.
That level of knowledge only comes from decades of experience working with some of the biggest and most discerning names in sport, including Arsenal’s Arsene Wenger and Denis Bergkamp to Sebastian Coe.
Our Sports Consultancy Team work with you to fully understand your team’s strategic objectives for travel management. We’ll then put in place policy proposals designed to meet and exceed those goals, including budget control, VIP treatment, policy adherence and duty of care solutions. In light of the current COVID-19 pandemic, keeping players and staff safe has never been more important. Creatively managing travel during these unprecedented times is just part of our innovative service.
