School Trips Operator Activ4 Adds Malta to Its Portfolio

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM–(Marketwire – Dec. 1, 2010) – Specialist School trips tour operator Activ4 adds Malta to its growing portfolio of sports tours destinations from 2011.

Activ4 is a leading UK sports tours and educational travel provider, with its head office and call centre based in Shrewsbury, Shropshire Activ4 work with many schools and clubs across the UK.

A key contributor in driving the business forward is the company’s efforts to ensure its offering is not only appealing to its target audience, but as importantly is that its offer constantly evolves; allowing schools and clubs the opportunity to take their out of class room activities to new and exciting destinations.

Activ4 believe the dedication and hard work it applies to developing its product offering, alongside its outstanding customer service will ensure customers keep returning. The company’s expertise in arranging safe and successful trips for school children to relish, enjoy and learn, undoubtedly leads to satisfied customers. Adding countries like Malta can only further enhance its offer.

According to Steve Scott, Activ4’s Managing Director, Malta is the perfect sports tour destination for schools and clubs, and he explains why, “Malta is our latest destination for sports tours and it is rapidly becoming one of our most popular. Not only is Malta a small historically rich Mediterranean island, where the Maltese hospitality is legendary, but it is also the perfect destination for sports groups to travel to, as it has a Commonwealth heritage, which means that sports such as football tours, netball, hockey, rugby and tennis are readily available through the local club structure”.

Scott continued, “This means we can organise local opposition for UK schools and clubs to play their preferred sports against, which is not always so easy when you look at other destinations. Malta therefore takes away those hurdles. It also has a great climate, plus it is a destination where we have a fantastic product that is very affordable, which is what we need to be promoting even more given the current economic climate”.
