Measures we're taking to safeguard your holiday

Throughout the Coronavirus pandemic, we have been closely monitoring Government guidelines. As of today, there are no specific restrictions around the number of people on coaches, however, in order to make your journey as safe and comfortable as possible, we’re putting the following into practice:

  1. It is recommended that you bring your own face covering and to wear it throughout your journey on the coach.
  2. At your joining point, each customer will be temperature checked before entering the vehicle. Any customer who has a temperature above 37.5 degrees will be advised that they can’t travel. They will receive a full credit to be used against another holiday, less a £20pp administration fee.
  3. We will provide hand sanitiser on board the coach that must be used upon entrance and exit of the vehicle.

General advice

All customers should follow sensible guidance to reduce their risk of exposure to Coronavirus while this outbreak is ongoing. Viruses can easily be passed from person to person, however, the best preventative measure to stop the spread of infections is to wash your hands frequently and thoroughly with soap, then rinse them well under running water. Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands. Always cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in a bin and wash your hands with soap and water.

We will update this page with further information as guidance from the Government changes. The latest information and advice on travel to specific countries can be found at
