Kick off Euro 2016 with up to £280 savings on Anglo Welsh holidays

The ‘Anglo’ in us will be supporting Wayne Rooney and his England Lions at Euro 2016. Our ‘Welsh’ half will be cheering for Gareth Bale’s Red Dragons. And though Anglo Welsh has yet to venture as far as the Emerald Isle, we’ll also raise a glass to Ireland’s two contenders in France this summer. After all, when was the last time England, Wales, Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland all reached the final stages of the same major football tournament? The answer is simple: never!

In fact, the Anglo Welsh team are so excited by France’s soccer showdown we’ve decided to spread the joy with exclusive Euro 2016 discounts**. That means a sharp shooting, tough tackling, goal busting 15% off all canal holidays departing during the Euros (from June 10th to July 10th), even if the home nations revert to type and slide out of the tournament at the group stage. And in the interest of fair play, we’ll even offer you 15% discount if football bores you to death and a peaceful narrowboat cruise along a quiet canal seems like the perfect antidote to footy fever!

If you are a football fan why not enjoy the best of both worlds by combining an Anglo Welsh waterway holiday with the Euros? Whichever canal circuit you choose, from Trevor in North Wales down to Bradford on Avon in Wiltshire, you’ll rarely be more than a goal kick away from a canal side pub and a big screen showing the action from France. And with savings of up to £280 on your booking, you can treat yourself to a few slap-up meals while you enjoy the games.

Alternatively, you could put your feet up and follow the whole tournament from the water. Every Anglo Welsh narrowboat has a TV so you could bring your own crate of French wine and watch all 51 games on board. And if the gentle rocking of the canal means you nod off and miss the final, don’t worry we already know who wins. To quote Gary Lineker: “Football is a simple game. Twenty-two men chase a ball for 90 minutes and at the end, the Germans always win.”
