2017-18 Magellan Ashes Series in Australia
England Cricket Tours

The 2017-18 Magellan Ashes Series in Australia will be Howzat Travel's fourth Ashes series down under, and our biggest and most comprehensive offering to date!

Howzat Travel directors Ian Kerr and Steve Eatherington outline why this series is a must for every cricket fan, and why every cricket fan should travel with Howzat Travel...

The Ashes in Australia –
The ideal time to join the Howzat Travel family!

"The Ashes Urn, contested between England and Australia, is the greatest sporting rivalry in cricket and one of the greatest in world sport. With a wonderful blend of rich history, tradition and competitive banter, it is the cricket tour that every England cricket fan aspires to witness first-hand in their lifetime at least once.

We feel lucky to have witnessed an England win first hand in the 2010-11 Ashes Series, and those memories will live with us for the rest of our days. In fact, it’s one of the very greatest sporting achievements we have ever witnessed… and that includes Leicester City's recent Premier League triumph!

So, after a successful home series in 2015 (the less said about the 2013-14 series down under, the better) we - and the rest of the Howzat Travel team - are looking forward to taking hundreds of happy Howzat Travellers to Australian shores again this winter – to hopefully witness a competitive and entertaining series in the baggy greens’ back yard!

This will be Howzat Travel’s fourth visit to Australian shores and we have been working tirelessly in recent months to make sure our 2017-18 packages are our most detailed, adventurous and best tours we have ever put together.  In fact, with every nights' accommodation covered, our ATOL-bonded tours offer something for every budget and have also included every sightseeing opportunity that any Australian visitor could ask for!

In late 2016, we visited every Ashes host city to view each and every hotel available within the program, and we have used our extensive experience to choise the best value match tickets for our various tour options. We have already even confirmed our Christmas lunch venue and special guest entertainement for the special day in 2017!

Howzat Travel has come a long way since our first Australian Ashes tours in 2006-07. We firmly believe that - as well as our valuable travel experience, extensive destination knowledge and love of cricket - the secret to our growth and success since then lies in our personal service, treating our customers like family. And we want to welcome more of you!

Our 2017-18 Magellan Ashes Series tours are the biggest, most comprehensive offering we have ever compiled. We are sure there will be a tour option to suit a wide range of tastes and budgets – with several different set tour packages taking in one, two, three or five tests - all of which being offered with four different standards of accommodation and match tickets.

All of our tours include every night’s accommodation from the moment you land on Australian soil to the point you return home. We have several fantastic sightseeing options on offer between the Adelaide & Perth, and the Perth & Melbourne tests… or you can fly directly on to your next destination if you prefer.

To give our travellers the widest range of options, for the first time, we have created two new full categories of tour to sit either side of our much-loved Red and Blue standards, to make sure every cricket traveller is catered for. Here's the rundown...

Platinum Tours - Our new Platinum tour standard encapsulates the best-of-the-best of an overseas cricket tour. We have selected what we believe to be the best, first-class hotels in each destination. Add to this Platinum tickets throughout, a dedicated Howzat Travel Tour Manager and exclusive access to Howzat Travel special guests throughout the tour, this tour option will see you enjoy the Ashes in first-class luxury.

Blue Tours - Our well-loved and established Blue tour standard is our high quality cricket tour option. With excellent hotels on a B&B basis, superb match tickets and experienced tour managers. The Blue tours are the perfect blend of class, quality and value.

Red Tours - There is nothing quite like the camaraderie created on a Howzat Travel Red tour. Whether it's at the cricket, enjoying a drink after the game or going out for dinner in a group, you'll be sure to have a great time. With great hotels and match tickets, our Red tours are the best-value tour on the market.

White tours - The Ashes on a budget. We have stripped down our White tour to make it even more affordable for cricket fanatics. Stay in comfortable hotels, knowing that your international and domestic flights and the all-important cricket tickets are taken care of. There will of course be the option to buy into some of Howzat Travel's famed events, and our Tour Managers are just a phone call away. You won't find prices as low as this anywhere else!

Testimonials from previous Ashes tours

Despite the disappointing display on the pitch, the England fans who travelled to Australia in 2013-14 with Howzat Travel had a fantastic time. Here are a few examples of the comments we received after the tour.


"Absolutely amazing - very well organised and nothing was too much trouble. Well done - something to be proud of... The holiday and hospitality was second to none."

"There were so many companies to choose from, but from the very beginning we were so happy that we chose Howzat Travel.
From the initial booking to being waved off in Sydney, it was a memorable holiday. Thank you all for the attention to detail, friendliness and helpfulness. A travel company to be recommended.

"I had a fabulous time in Australia with Howzat Travel. I will certainly only travel to overseas cricket with your company in the future. I have previously travelled with one or two of your rivals, and I find there is no comparison with the professional service that Howzat Travel provides."
