We understand you might have lots of questions about the acquisition of the Shearings brand by Leger Holidays. We’ve collated some useful information below that should help answer your queries.
On 23rd June 2020, Leger Holidays purchased the Shearings brand. This includes the Shearings website, social media sites and customer lists. Only details of those customers who had opted in to receive information from the Shearings brand was transferred across. Everyone who receives marketing information from us will have the opportunity to opt out of any further communications.
Shearings will now operate as a sister company to Leger, offering brand new fully escorted tours to the UK and Europe.

All staff who were employed by the SLG Group were unfortunately made redundant due to the Group going into administration on the 22nd May 2020.
We sympathise greatly with those who have lost their jobs, and whilst former employees were not part of the acquisition, we hope that as we begin to operate tours again, and as the business grows, we will no doubt have requirement for additional resource and it may create many more jobs.
We will be operating a fantastic selection of brand new tours to the UK and Europe. Whilst they won’t be exactly the same, you’ll see similar destinations, hotels and excursions, along with some exciting updates and additions.
There will be different price ranges to suit all budgets, giving you plenty of choice to find the holiday that’s right for you.
Yes, as we build our product range, self-drive breaks will be part of the Shearings collection of holidays.
