Volvo Ocean Race

Let us take care of the intense logistical requirements involved in getting your team through the huge challenge of a Volvo Ocean Race. We help to look after shore crew, race teams and sponsors through every leg of this challenging event.

The 2014-15 round of the Volvo Ocean Race is the 5th edition that we have worked on here at Travel Places. Most of our sailing team have worked on each of these editions, having a huge amount of experience on things like in-port knowledge, issuing round the world tickets and providing genuine 24 hour support both in the office and on the ground at stopovers. We also understand that, for this event in particular, you have to expect the unexpected which is why we work with so many teams that are involved with the sport.

As well as playing a key role in the Volvo Ocean Race over the past five editions, our yachting experience includes working with teams taking part in the America's Cup World Series as well as the main event in Weymouth for the 2012 Summer Games. This specialist approach makes us one of the leading sports travel management companies for yachting in the UK.

If you're part of a team, sponsor or corporate group attending the Volvo Ocean Race, please contact us to find out more.

As Operations and Logistics Manager for Emirates Team New Zealand, I would be very happy to endorse the services and experience provided by Travel Places. At all time, they displayed speed and efficiency with complete understanding of our needs at all team levels. Travel Places’ service is offered unconditionally, 24 hours of the day for any emergencies which has proved invaluable. Not only do they deliver results, but vitally keep in line with budgets set. We would not hesitate to work with Travel Places again for any of our needs.

During the last 2 editions of the Volvo Ocean Race, I’ve been using Travel Places’ services. The agency has been a supplier of great support on travel management and accommodation bookings. The organization and their staff always met the team’s requirements on both operational and financial levels. I will certainly work with Travel Places and the team in future projects.
