SA Rugby Travel forms part of the sports and leisure division within Tourvest Destination Management and began trading in early 2014, with its inaugural event being Rugby World Cup 2015 England, when we were appointed as the exclusive official travel agent in South Africa. SA Rugby Travel has since been appointed as an Official Travel Agent for the Rugby World Cup 2019, Japan, and the Rugby World Cup 2023, France.

SA Rugby Travel is a joint venture between SA Rugby and Tourvest, specializing in rugby travel, tours, and incentives. We create a range of unique and exciting travel packages based on domestic and International rugby events with a specific focus on Springbok test matches, Global Sevens Rugby, and Rugby World Cup products throughout the world.

SA Rugby Travel manages all official SA Rugby supporters travel requirements, from basic entry level packages to tailor-made specialist itineraries required for corporate incentives and rewards programmes. According to SA Rugby CEO, Jurie Roux, “SA Rugby Travel have been providing world-class rugby travelling experiences in and out of South Africa since 2014.”

If you are a rugby fan, local or global, wanting to be part of a memorable once in a life time experience, we make it happen.

  • I would like to say “many thanks” for the Rugby Championship 2016 experience in Pretoria & Durban. It was my first time to witness a Rugby Championship event live in a stadium. It was a huge crowd and the expectators were lively as ever. The hotel accommodation was better. Overall, it was meaningful event there in South Africa.
