At Bowling Abroad we are passionate about organising and managing group bowling holidays abroad and have been doing this since 2009.
All our packages for the tours are tailor made for bowlers because they are designed by bowlers for bowlers who love bowling abroad in hand picked destinations.
Return flights from regional airports with popular airlines to your selected destination. We cater for most UK airports.
Private coach transfers from the airport to your hotel and back again for the return flight.
Top quality hotels that have been hand selected to suit bowling groups.
Pre-arranged matches against local bowls clubs inclusive of coach transfer, green fees, welcome gifts and daily top rink prizes.
Our Tour Managers collect you from the airport and are then with you every step of the way from bowls matches to excursions.
