We have a large fleet of vehicles that can each transport between 16 and 70 people. This variety means we are experts in moving large groups of people, having transported up to 4,500 people at a time in the past. Even though the tour you have in mind is likely to be considerably smaller, maintaining this variety within the fleet still pays off. We’ll be able to provide you with the most suitable and cost-effective mode of transport for your tour, taking into account your budget and requirements to find the vehicle that your tour needs.
Embracing modern technology
The location of all our coaches can be monitored in real time using our Samsara operations platform. This same platform can also receive a feed from the forward and rear facing dash cams that have been fitted to the vehicle, and it can display current traffic conditions. This allows our office team to monitor our progress, identifying and avoiding any issues that could disrupt your tour.
Finding a way
We love to take on new challenges. If you have an obscure tour destination or challenging route in mind – contact us and we’ll discuss it with you to see if we can make it work. Because of the size and varied nature of the vehicles in our fleet, we can often handle jobs that other companies would struggle to manage, making us the ideal partner for ambitious tour operators.
Using our experience
We’ve worked alongside other operators in the past to deliver successful tours to tourist groups and language schools. As a result, we understand what’s expected of us and we know how to handle the logistical side of the operation. You can relax knowing that we will transport your customers safely, efficiently, and affordably, allowing them to focus their attention on your tour.
Preparing for success
We spend time preparing all our tours ahead of their dates of travel to make sure that they run smoothly. This gives us a chance to check the route and schedule and to identify any potential issues in advance. To date, we have never missed a transfer or left passengers stranded at the side of the road, unable to continue their tour.
Focusing on safety
Our vehicles are maintained above and beyond the required standards – we carry out inspections every six weeks. These rigorous inspections ensure that our coaches are safe, reliable, efficient, and extremely unlikely to break down. If you’re planning to take children on one of your tours, you’ll also be pleased to hear that we require all our drivers to pass an enhanced DBS check.
Minimising our impact
We invest in modern, fuel efficient vehicles that are full of technological features such as idle engine cut offs, minimising the impact of our journeys as much as possible. Our experienced drivers are also well-versed in fuel-efficient driving techniques and have been instructed to monitor their engine usage. All in all, we celebrate the environmental benefits of coach travel.
