Years of training, relationship building, flexibility, agility, and a never-say-die mentality have enabled Stage and Screen to take a major sporting association from lockdowns to touchdowns.
To succeed, you need passion and determination. Throw in elite travel management that puts you in a winning position. From Olympic athletes to grass-roots squads, our team is highly skilled in developing specialised itineraries for travellers that need to arrive in great-shape and ready to play. From planning one-off international sports tours, to year-round competitions, our experienced travel managers are the best team to have on your side.
We’re on your side, on and off the field
The intention to win, starts long before you take to the field. The same goes for successful sports travel. It’s the many hours of planning and preparation the Stage and Screen team put in - to perfect every aspect of your travel including tour logistics that makes all the difference. With our small and experienced teams, we take a hands-on approach to tailoring seamless tours and itineraries.
Thirty years is a long time to be at the top of your field, whether you’re in sports, entertainment or travel. Stage and Screen are long-term legends in sports travel and over time we’ve handpicked and trained a team to get results clients want. Years of experience, relationship building, agility and a can-do attitude, have allowed us to support athletes, management, coaches and their whole entourage - from lockdowns to touchdowns.
Choosing Stage and Screen to manage every aspect of your travel program, is a bit like playing with a home team advantage. As your travel management partner we can manage:
- All bookings across air travel, accommodation, ground transport, transfers
- Best fare/rate of day for domestic and international travel
- Travel policy development and deployment
- Credits on hold
- Online bookings
- Supplier negotiations / group travel negotiations
Your personal support crew
Because Stage and Screen lives and breathe sport, we understand the difference between achieving a good result and a personal best, can be found in the small details. Like booking international flights that cause the least disruption to athlete sleep patterns. It’s this kind of specialist knowledge that only comes with many years of managing sports travel and complex itineraries.
We also appreciate that many sports events have their own unique timeframes. Meaning a late-night match, or an unexpected injury, often requires access to travel support 24/7. That’s why our after-hours team is staffed by in-house Stage and Screen travel managers, right around the clock.
We can also provide support for:
- Freight and logistics
- Event and group travel
- Last minute or emergency bookings
- Visas and passports
- Waivers and favours
- Duty of care and global traveller security
