LIBOR TOURS OF REMEMBRANCE

Remembrance Travel is trying to find all surviving veterans of WWII to participate in funded LIBOR Tours of Remembrance to where they served.

The Royal British Legion has been running LIBOR funded tours for Normandy veterans for the past four years and thanks to additional LIBOR funding is now able to widen the tours to all veterans of WWII.

The Treasury are enabling a series of tours which are being funded by the LIBOR fines, allowing a WWII veteran to return and pay their respects to fallen comrades. In addition, a family member and a carer would be able to accompany the veteran to support and share the experience.

The tours will take place from spring to autumn as numbers demand and will give WWII veterans – now mostly in their 90s - the chance to meet up with fellow veterans, visit significant battlefield sites, cemeteries and memorials. The tours will be led by an official Royal British Legion guide and the tours will include:

  • Overnight B&B accommodation pre and post tour (as required)
  • Accommodation on a dinner, bed and breakfast basis during the tour
  • Air, rail, ferry or executive coach travel as per the itinerary
  • Visits to war memorials, cemeteries and significant sites
  • Entrance fees
  • Medic
  • Up to £50 per person allowance for travel to and from the tour departure point

Tours do not include lunches, travel insurance and items of a personal nature.

These tours are also open to organisations and associations. If there is a group of 10 veterans (30 passengers) or more, we will operate a coach at no charge from a local departure point to join an existing tour or operate a separate tour. Please note the group would not qualify for the £50.00 travel allowance.

There is no database of veterans from WWII who are still alive today, therefore if you are a veteran or know of a veteran who would like to benefit from these tours, please contact us on 01473 660800 to register your interest or download the registration form and send it to Remembrance Travel, C/O Arena Travel, 2 Betts Ave, Martlesham Heath, Ipswich, Suffolk, IP5 3RH.
