The Abel Tasman Team understands the needs of visiting sport groups and was able to handle everything the team was greeted at the airport, taxis arranged and check-in was fast and efficient no delays and no fuss.

Travelling sport teams need the best preparation possible, the right accommodation, and an understanding of the needs of visiting athletes can be the vital difference between a great trip and a wining performance and a tough tour with players not performing at their best.
