Yes, teams are responsible for their own air travel. Our tour planners will work with you to arrange transportation from your destination airport to the lodging in your destination city.
We offer a range of lodging options based on the budget of your group. We’ve partnered with local university dormitories, business class hotels, budget hotels and sports clubs.

This is up to your club, however, most tours allow parents and siblings to travel as well. We understand a soccer tour to Italy is something the whole family would want to experience! Parents often enjoy watching the training sessions and interacting with the academy coaches. In addition, because of GIS’ expert chaperones parents are free to leave the group from time to time and explore the city on their own.
