At Riviera Travel, we appreciate just how hard it is for charities and organisations to continuously raise the ever-increasing funds needed for their vital work each year. However, even the most loyal supporters of any good cause reach a point where they cannot donate more money or sponsor another event – however they may still want to go on holiday!
As part of our Affinity scheme we have partnered with a number of organisations and charities, and you are able to support these simply by booking your holiday with Riviera Travel. We offer this on a wide range of holidays from our luxurious river cruises to new UK breaks, cultural European tours or city breaks and long-haul trips of a lifetime without any additional cost to you.
