Depending on your nationality you may need to arrange a visa to enter the UK and we will help you do this. If you live in the Philippines and only have a Filipino passport then you will need to apply for a UK visa. We will help you process this and an organised trip to the DFA in Manila, including collection and drop off will take place at an arranged time where all visas, biometrics etc. will be completed.
Can I travel with my child?
Yes of course you can. The package price will remain the same as you will also be staying on site at Bisham Abbey and you will also enjoy all the activities too. We will even arrange a few 'parents/guardian nights' where the adults can enjoy an evening out together.
What happens if I can't travel with my child?
Then we will make sure your child in safe hands. Your child's safety is of utmost importance to us and we take this very seriously. We always have a minimum ratio of 1 adult to 5 children at all times and all the relevant DSWD forms (Philippines only) and approvals will be completed departure.
We will all meet at the airport where Zenith Soccer Tours staff will be present and we will then take responsibility for the care and protection of your child for the duration of the tour.
We will provide the children with access to call home every day via skype should they wish to.
Do you provide travel insurance?
We strongly advise you to arrange this yourself as getting the right cover for your child is something personal to you. One parent may want additional cover in a certain area so this is why we recommend it be dealt with by the parent/guardian, however if necessary we will of course help you with this process if you wish.
It is a requirement of Zenith Soccer Tours that all children be fully insured and all travel insurance be in place before we travel, otherwise the child will not be allowed to come.
As company director I am fully DBS (formerly CRB - Child protection Bureau) cleared. All our coaches currently work in academies so they are also fully checked and cleared to work with children, adhering to the UK's strict child welfare policies. Any additional staff members will also go through a rigorous screening process to ensure they meet the high standards set by Zenith Soccer Tours.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Please find below a list of our most frequently asked questions. If you cannot find the answers you are looking for then please contact us via the CONTACT page and we will answer you questions as soon as possible.
Are you insured?
Yes. The company is fully insured with public liability insurance cover. We use a reputable flight agency when booking flights who are ATOL protected meaning that all money used to pay for flights is fully protected. The child's personal travel insurance will also cover each child individually which is why it is a requirement of Zenith Soccer Tours that all children attending our tours have travel insurance in place before we travel.
How will we know what extra activities will take place and how much will they cost?
The day excursions and activities are constantly changing, sometimes due to outside influences such as club timetables etc. Prior to departure, your welcome pack will provide a list of the possible activities and how much they will cost. You will need to check which activities you would be happy for your child to attend and we will endeavour to accommodate this, taking into account the preferences of the other tour attendees. If you decide that you did not want your child to go along to the extra activity then we will aim to arrange something else either on site at Bisham Abbey or off-site that does not involve additional cost.
Why don't you publish the tour cost on the website?
Our tours are bespoke and will vary from one tour to the next so it is difficult to post exact prices online. We also have clients that come from all over the world, for example, some from Europe and some from as far away as Asia. There are many variable costs involved such as travel and visa expenses etc., so this is why we will tailor your package to suit your needs.
Please feel free to contact us and we will happily build your perfect soccer tour.
