Oliver's Travels thanked for removing bullfighting lessons
10 December 2014

London-based travel company, Oliver's Travels, has been thanked for removing from its website a suggestion to take bullfighting lessons with a professional bullfighter.

The lessons to learn how to use a bullfighting cape and how to "move in front of the bull" were deleted following an appeal by ICABS in which we highlighted the cruelty of bullfighting.

A company spokesperson stated: "We have removed all mentions of bullfighting and will make sure it is not mentioned on any new properties we add."

Oliver's Travel's response is a big help to our ongoing campaign to encourage holidaymakers to reject bullfighting.

We thank them for this compassionate move. Find out more about their travel offers at
