  • We will advise on availability and hold the necessary allocations off sale for around four weeks (depending upon the tour).
  • We will send you a pack containing booking forms and itineraries for you to circulate for completion.
  • You can then choose to send the completed booking forms and deposits back individually or as a group, and we will send the confirmation/invoice directly to your group members – the travel documents can come to  you to distribute or again be sent directly to the members, whatever is easier for you.

Group Sizes and Your Options

If a larger number of people are travelling together we could operate your chosen tour as a private group and at no extra cost to the brochure price on most occasions.

Smaller groups could travel as a shared tour, where we would also have other individual like-minded Riviera Travel passengers on board. This would in no way detract from the quality or content of the programme and your group would still travel and stay together throughout, but it would mean you would not have to reach a minimum number of people for the tour to operate at the lowest price, thus taking away the risk factor sometimes associated with group travel planning.

Finally there is the option of a tailor made tour, following your chosen itinerary or allowing us to tailor one to suit your particular interests.

Whatever you decide, whether to travel by air or Eurostar, on a touring holiday or single/multi-centred break, all of our tours are fully escorted throughout by an experienced Riviera Travel Tour Manager, and with low deposits starting at just £50pp to secure places, there has never been a better time to book a group holiday!

Group Offers


We price our holidays at the lowest possible rate for all our passengers, and as a company we never discount our holidays. However, as a thank you for bringing your group to us, we would like to offer you a commission payment based on the total holiday cost. This would apply for any groups of 10 people or more travelling together and is valid on all of our holidays. As this is a commission, the payment will come to your group the month after travel, for you to do with as you wish. We will contact the group leader to request an invoice to be sent to us after travel for the agreed amount (plus VAT if applicable to your group). This is not valid for bookings made through a third party. Please contact us for further details.

Testimonials from Group Holidays with Riviera Travel

"Well, I know I speak on behalf of the rest of our group when I say what a thoroughly great time we had in Bruges.  We are all totally delighted with Riviera Travel and will definitely be using you again. Our tour manager was Kay and she was brilliant. So knowledgeable and informative as well as being good fun. A real asset to your company. Sadly, one of our group was unable to go because of illness but she told me you were so helpful when she contacted you. We felt that the excursions were very well organised and enjoyable without “taking over” the holiday."

C.Whyte, Inner Wheel Club of Wolverton

"I would just like to pass on our group’s thanks to all involved in making our break a very memorable one. Everyone had a fabulous time in Paris, the weather was very kind and Andy, our Tour Guide was superb! He was very knowledgeable and went just that little bit further to make sure everyone was happy and knew where they were going.  He is certainly a fabulous ambassador for Riviera Travel! I must add that the arranged tours were brilliant, especially ‘Paris by Night’. Andy gave a great running commentary on all the tours – he’s like a walking encyclopaedia!! 
Well done Riviera Travel !! Many, many thanks again"

H. Saunders, Ringway Circle, Catenians

“We have had a wonderful holiday on our recent  Blue Danube Cruise. The ship was very well appointed, comfortable and would say quite luxurious.The food was excellent, with a very good choice. All the staff were so welcoming and friendly, nothing was too much trouble for them. The cruise manager Leslie was absolutely great, very funny, very well organised, and super-efficient, again nothing was too much trouble for him, one of the best. All in all a wonderful holiday. Would certainly recommend it. We are already thinking about the next one, so thanks to all at Riviera.”
