Attracting half a million tourists each year, Barbados offers a real escape into island life, complete with lush scenery, vast crop plantations and a fascinating colonial history. Believe us when we say the landscape is the stuff of fantasies.

Whether you’ve got an appetite for sport, relaxation or history, a school sports tour to Barbados has something for everyone and can also be visited on a multi-centre sports tour to St Lucia – giving you the perfect blend of beach paradise and tropics. Play competitive fixtures against local opposition in netball, basketball, hockey and cricket and enjoy the very best of Barbados in our hand-picked excursions.

With a unique mix of exciting activities and some of the friendliest people you’ll ever meet, you’ll be surprised at how inclusive yet cost effective your sports tour to Barbados can be.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Is insurance included with my trip?

    Yes, insurance will be included in your trip quotation as standard unless it is requested not to be. Make sure you check the list of inclusions in your quotation and/or confirmation.

  • Is all of your accommodation audited in advance?

    Yes, all of our accommodation is audited prior to us offering it to a group. The criterion of these audits is governed by the School Travel Forum (STF). It is important to remember that each country is governed by their own standards and laws and these may differ from UK law. However, we require our accommodation to meet our standards as a minimum. We work with the hotels and agents to endeavour to ensure that our standards are met.
  • What happens if flights are operating but we decide we do not want to travel?

    If there has been no official advice against travel, yet your group has opted to cancel, then your cancellation is totally subject to our booking conditions. However, we will always work with you to try and minimise the financial effect and find the best solution for you.

    Period before departure within which written notification is received by Rayburn Tours Ltd:

    70 – 29 days before departure: 75% amount of cancellation charge (expressed as a percentage of the total holiday cost)

    28 – 15 days before departure: 90% amount of cancellation charge (expressed as a percentage of the total holiday cost)

  • Do you provide risk assessments for hotels?

    Rayburn Tours have individual audits which are completed on every hotel/accommodation centre which we use. We are more than happy for you to see this should you wish. Our audits cover fire safety, means of escape and general safety.
