About the employer

23% of the British population have at some point watched a football match abroad. However, in a market place flooded with fake or dodgy football tickets, sub-standard hotels, tourist-trap bars, overpriced taxis and complicated transport systems, organising such trips independently isn’t as easy as we might think. Football Road Trips is a UK based company ran BY football fans FOR football fans and was set up to provide an experience that you simply cannot find anywhere else. Having been to over 100 countries ourselves and watched football in close to 50, the team is highly knowledgeable about both football and travel, meaning the experience will be enhanced greatly. At Football Road Trips they take all the stress out of organising a trip to watch European football by supplying an English guide for the duration of your holiday, helping to gee up the group and take you to the bars and pubs that tourists just don’t know about. Not only does this save money but also gives the chance to meet locals and have a more genuine experience when in Europe’s finest cities. In addition, the fact they also provide a driver the whole time means you never have to get on local transport or pay expensive taxis whilst away, saving precious time and cash. Their relationships with clubs also mean that clients will ALWAYS get great seats inside the stadiums they visit and you’ll never have to worry about getting turned away at the turnstile, something which sadly happens when buying from certain unregistered and uninsured websites. They are fully protected and licensed by the Protected Travel Services who hold your money until your trip is complete, giving peace of mind and protection financially.
