Daffodil Cricket Tours

Daffodil Cricket Tours 2018

Tour Calendar for 2018 will be published shortly after the release of fixtures by the ECB. Anticipated December 2017.


The Balconiers are the only supporters group to arrange trips to Championship matches on a regular basis, a point which makes most visiting counties very envious – and us very proud!

The Balconiers have been arranging stay-away trips for the best part of 40 years and over the four decades have gained an excellent reputation for offering the best value with regard to executive travel and accommodation. This is something we are proud of and it is a testimony to the popularity of our trips over all these years. You will find that, once again, we have booked hotels that we have been using in previous years as we find that it’s a good policy to support those hotels that are tried and trusted.

Please note the following:

  • Trip bookings have always been taken on trust but members are strongly advised to take out annual travel insurance to cover any unforeseen cancellations.
  • Following pre-season discussions with many regular participants of the Daffodil Tours, it has been decided that we will travel the
    day before on some of the long-haul trips.
  • Nearly all hotels these days ask for formal contracts to be signed for Group accommodation and this involves sending them a deposit with the contract −as you are aware the Balconiers have never insisted on a deposit with your booking as such bookings have always been taken on trust, with the exception of the Premier Inn at Canterbury.
  • Be mindful of the fact that when we do book a hotel (and in order to secure a booking this often has to be done up to six months in advance) we enter into a contractual arrangement with them. Obviously, there are rare occasions when members have to cancel due to unforeseen circumstances and in these instances we will do our utmost to persuade the hotel not to penalise the customer. Much depends, though, on the individual hotel and how strictly they adhere to the terms of the contract.

If you would like to join any of the trips please download and complete the daffodil-tours-2018-booking-form when it is published and return to John Williams. More information will be available soon.

All supporters of the Glamorgan team are most welcome to join these trips including those supporters that live away from South Wales who have the option to join us on a hotel-only basis.

The trips are always great fun and the continued support on the Balconiers’ travels is always gratefully received.

Thank you for all your loyal support over the years. We look forward to your continued presence on the 2018 trips, which is always greatly appreciated by the Glamorgan team.
