WORLDLY We are an international company that attracts travellers from all over the world.
AM I STOKED? Your feet are loose and your cheeks are rosy. Everything you own is stuffed into a dusty, overflowing backpack and your only worry is where you’re going to get your next kicks from. You’ve been doing things that would freak your parents out, that your friends back home just wouldn’t understand. Your tastes have changed since you were last back there, and now you chase your fun on a global scale and find it in the most unlikely places; running with bulls in the north of Spain, getting pounded by the sea off the coast of the Sahara, or smashing beer glasses with locals in Munich.
You’ve developed a thing for being Stoked. Stoke is about having the time of your life, the relentless pursuit of smiles, living in the moment, and paying the price later. Being Stoked is found surfing, it’s found partying, it’s found feeling at home in foreign places, and realising that your comfort zone wasn’t all that comfortable after all. Stoke occurs when an adventurous attitude collides with a golden opportunity. You’ve got the attitude, and we are providing the opportunities.
THAT IS WHY THIS IS GOING TO BE A BEAUTIFUL RELATIONSHIP

WHAT IS THE STOKE TRAVEL
More information at stoketravel.com/passport
The Stoke Travel Passport gives full flexibility to the open-minded traveller, so you can experience Europe’s biggest cultural festivals, surf trips, adventures and city breaks at your own pace. Stoke’s Passport is for travellers, not tourists. We know that you want to see Europe your way – that you don’t want to be herded on and off buses, tied to an inflexible 20-countries-in-two-weeks itinerary – but want to reap the social benefits of group travel. The Stoke Travel Passport allows you to create your own Europe trip while guaranteeing your place at the biggest and best festivals.
PS I TR FOR THE PRICE OF
Stoke Travel is Europe’s biggest festival travel operator. We take you to the best parties with large groups of like-minded travellers. Our campsite parties are legendary, fuelled by our unlimited beer and sangria option, at only €10 extra per day. Last year over 90 different nationalities participated. Nationalist tour groups are a thing of the past. Meet someone from somewhere else ! The Stoke Travel Passport allows you to choose four destinations from more than 20 options. Your place is pre-reserved – just let us know if you’ll be joining us one week before you arrive. Stoke Travel is an “all inclusive” company, with your accommodation ready on arrival, including bedding, meals included, and new best friends from all over the world. Your Euro trip is yours to create, we’ll just help out with the parties.

THE BEST PASSPORT IN THE WORLD The Stoke Travel Passport wins by unanimous decision over all Passports
STOKEPEDIA FILE #1089172 Travel knowledge, stories, facts and insights from fellow vagabonds... Not all passports are created equal, kind of like men. Harry Styles is way hotter than Harry Connick Jr., but Prince Harry is hotter than them both. Just like men. Passports are ranked by power, and power is determined by how many countries the passport can enter without a visa. An Australian passport is worse than a French passport but better than Uruguayan passport, and so it goes. Now we have our own passport, a Stoke Passport, and it’s a pretty slick piece of official documentation. We love it; think just the world of it. It’s currently waiting to be recognised by the United Nations General Assembly as the travel document of the spiritual state of Stokemenistan. We thought we’d pit the Stoke Passport against some of the world’s other great travel documents.
WHEN YOU TRAVEL WITH STOKE Some Stokies like to tick off the flags they’ve, ahem, gotten freaky with. How many flags have you claimed?
CIRCLE YOUR FLAGS
STOKE TRAVEL PASSPORT VS THE UNITED KINGDOM
STOKE PASSPORT VS AUSTRALIA
Yeah, sure, a UK Passport will allow you visa-free entry to 147 countries, and the Stoke Passport zero, but with the Stoke Passport you won’t be in a French bistro whinging about the lack of bacon, eggs and good baked beans and you’re less likely to suffer crippling sunburn in Ibiza/Spain than you would if you were a UK Passport holder.
While the Aussie passport lets you cross the borders of all the countries of the EU visa-free, this is only for 3 measely months of the year, the Stoke Passport can be used at any time and destination over 24 months. Plus all you Aussies are about to move to London anyway, get cultured, go continental.
esult: Stoke for the R baguette & bronzed win
Result: Another tent swapping victory for the Stoke Passport
STOKE PASSPORT VS NEW ZEALAND Yes yes we all know you Kiwis have a better passport than your hotter, (but perhaps more brash) cousins across the Tasmin, but is it better than the Stoke Passport? If you are reading this you’re already in Europe so make the most of your time here, and plan your summer in Spain! Get a Stoke Passport and enjoy your ridiculously good visa laws. Result: Stoke edges ahead with our classic lack of presumptuousness.
There are obviously many other nations that we could compare against the Stoke Passport, but what would the point be? We’re not the bragging kind who wants to go around dissing other Passports, pissing on their pages like a proud polecat. Nah fuck it, we totally are.
STOKE PASSPORT VS YOUR PASSPORT Look, the Stoke Passport won’t get you in and out of countries, but it will get you into festivals and parties and out of restrictive travel plans, and while the Stoke Passport won’t save your arse in a third world prison, it will save you piles of travelling cash and tone up that arse through dancing, so that it’s prison ready. Unlike your Passport, the issuers of the Stoke Passports won’t request that, abroad you act in a manner befitting your government, just in a manner that befits whatever the heck-darn hell you want it to befit. The Stoke Travel Passport doesn’t judge you like your passport does, it lets you be you for you, because you’re perfect just the way you are, baby. The Stoke Passport is three nights at four of your chosen festivals or trips, with more than 20 to choose from! The Stoke Passport is guaranteed to lead you to the best times of your life. It is obviously the best passport in the world.

WELL S S IF IT
Because surfing is a part of our DNA, the first trip we ever did, our lifelong hobby and the one activity that makes our board meetings considerably cooler than everyone else’s. Stoke Travel has been surfing up and down the French and Spanish coasts since 2006, and in that time we’ve found an array of surf spots for all levels of surfers, the best beachside towns for brews and babes, and everything to keep you entertained when the sun sets and the city starts to swell.
From sunbathers to shred dogs, we bring our relentless pursuit of funto the sea with Stoke Travel’s surf trips. All lessons, equipment hire, accommodation, meals, good times and best friends are included in the cover price; combine that with €10 all you can drink, open bar of beer and sangria and you could safely say we’ve got the apressurf activities covered too. All you have to do is kick back, go with the flow, and maybe swallow some seawater.
San Sebastian Surf House
Located in the rolling green hills behind the surf beach of Zarautz, the San Sebastian Surf House is the picture perfect place to wind down after a day of wrestling the waves, kicking back with a sangria as the sun slinks into the Bay of Biscay. The surf house offers another level of comfort for our weary surf adventurers, while immersing ourselves in the countryside of one of Spain’s, and the world’s, most beautiful regions. Think of the rolling foothills of the Pyrenees making their way into the North Atlantic, the prehistoric Basque culture unfolding around us and the fresh produce that comes from living in this gourmet region. The surf camp is for beginners and legends alike, and is the perfect place to unwind between festivals.
Van Surfari Spain + France Channelling the adventurous spirit of surf exploration, the Van Surfari is Stoke’s mobile surf camp. The Surfari is for the more adventurous surf traveller, but not necessarily the more experienced. We take everythxing you love about the San Sebastian Surf House and throw it in a van, while we drive to where the waves will be their best each day. The Surfari cruises the coasts between southwest France and northern Spain, ducking into whichever cove is receiving the best conditions for the surfers in the van.
We party and play in different towns, all the while watching two beautiful countries unfold outside our van’s windows. Fancy having breakfast in France and lunch in Spain? Having your itinerary determined by which way the wind blows and the waves roll in? Then the Stoke Travel Surfari is the surf trip for you.
The Zarautz Surf Camp
Stoke’s Zarautz Beach Camp opens specially over the Running of the Bulls period to give you the best of the surf and turf, in our little slice of paradise just 20 minutes outside San Sebastian.

Stoke Travel’s campsites are like nothing in the world. Our own twisted fairytale lands, with carnivalesque atmosphere, elements of illusion, live bands, DJs and nightly entertainment. Our staff are crucial to our image, with each Stokie contributing to the open-minded vibe as part of Stoke Travel is not just the party.
WHY IT’S DIFFERENT
We see ourselves as fun merchants, creating festivals within festivals at campsites you won’t want to leave. Helped of course by our unlimited beer and sangria. We might not be sexy, but we’ve got plenty of booze and rock and roll.
live music, strippers, drag queens, & more.
trying to erase our guests of any trip anxiety, organising budget travel for international young people. We’re different because we have our own personality. We promise to make this a trip you won’t forget, with nights you won’t remember and memories to last a lifetime. We don’t patronize you, herding you on and off buses like school kids. We balance organisation with spontaneity, no 2 Stoke trips are the same. Our guests aren’t observers, but necessary participants to the whole she-bang.
