On behalf of the Exeter Chiefs I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone at Venatour for all of their help and support in making our trip to Clermont for last weekend’s Round Five Heineken Cup match versus ASM Clermont Auvergne run so smoothly. Not only was it an occasion where we were all made to feel very comfortable, but it was great to have all our requirements for a travelling group of 48 met with such ease.
On past European trips we have made travel plans of our own, often leading to exhausting and extra travel plans both in this country and overseas. By working with Venatour on our Heineken Cup away trips, it was a first for the Exeter Chiefs and a huge step in our development and progress in Europe to date.
With experienced and reliable staff on the ground to collate and distribute all details and requirements to flight companies and organise overseas travel and accommodation, we as Chiefs staff could spend more time organising the finer details needed to get the best performance out of the players and our time in Clermont.
I know the board members and management staff who attended the trip with the squad were also highly impressed with Venatour’s service and have expressed that the club will definitely use the company on future European excursions. The service we received throughout our time in France was first class and we would have no hesitation in recommending Venatour to other travellers in the future.
Thanks to Gareth Chilcott and his team, and we look forward to our next adventure with Venatour.
