TEAM Unlimited, the owner and producer of the XTERRA World Tour, has announced Nirvana Europe as the Official XTERRA European Tour Travel Partner. The Nirvana travel team, which boasts more than 15 years of experience in triathlon travel, will ‘provide all the necessary services to ensure XTERRA competitors and spectators enjoy their trip’.
“It’s a complete and cost effective service for our athletes,” said XTERRA President Janet Clark. “From airline flights and airport meet-and-greet, hotel bookings and ground transfers, to providing bike mechanics and masseurs, this team has every detail of travel covered so athletes can simply enjoy the experience and focus on their race.”
According to XTERRA, there are many benefits to booking with Nirvana, including a fully protected flight booking service and world-wide bike shipment arrangement.
“We are extremely proud to be joining the XTERRA family as the Official European Tour Travel Partner,” said Nirvana’s Managing Director Ken Morris. “Our primary aim is to enhance the experience of all XTERRA competitors and spectators by combining our vast triathlon-related travel knowledge with the personal approach that matters.”
As part of the agreement, Nirvana will thoroughly inspect each of the destinations on this year’s XTERRA European Tour to find a range of properties that will suit various budgets, including host hotels. The Nirvana team can also arrange to take athletes on pre-rides and runs of the course, and be on-site to assist throughout the trip. The team will also service European athletes who are traveling to Maui for the XTERRA World Championship in October.
“We are very happy to have Nirvana as our Official Travel Partner in Europe,” said XTERRA European Tour Marketing Director Kostas Koumargialis. “It’s a great service and I am sure our athletes and organizers will benefit from their knowledge and expertise in sports travel.”
