Following the Governments announcement last week about social gatherings being limited to six people, we would like to confirm this does NOT affect any day trips or holidays you have booked with us.
Exemptions cover what businesses such as ours are allowed to
safely and legally offer compared with informal and private events.
Businesses and venues following COVID-19 secure guidelines are able to host groups larger than 30 people although individual groups should still not interact with anyone outside of the group they are with.
In other words, group events are permitted when professionally organised by businesses who have made
risk assessments and put in place good practices for COVID safety. We have robust secure risk assessments in place, and there are risk assessments in place at all the hotels and venues we are using.
Our holidays and days trips for the remainder of the year will only be operating at half of the normal carrying capacity and your seat(s) will be socially distanced from other passengers. Couples or families can of course sit
together and single travellers will occupy a double seat.
We are also requesting all passengers wear a face covering (unless medically exempt)
and wash/sanitize their hands regularly.
Private organisers are being advised that hire of our vehicles will also be subject to the above guidelines.
We do hope this provides reassurance and helps you to understand the distinction
between what is legally permitted privately and what is permitted within a business setting.
**UPDATE 10th JULY 2020**
Our holiday tours will re-commence from September - the first one to operate being The Gower Peninsula on Thursday 10th September.
We are currently in the process of checking with the hotel and attractions that all is in place to take us and therefore ask anyone who has booked on this tour (or any another in September) that you kindly pay your balance now.
We also intend to operate 2 day excursions in August....
Skegness on Thursday 27th August
Stamford & Springfields on Friday 28th August
Social distancing measures will be in place on board and there will be a limited seat capacity.
Face coverings/masks must be worn on board the coach
Please see all price information on our website.
Your valued patronage will be especially welcome after what has been a very long and difficult time for us all.
We do hope you are able to join us and look forward to seeing you!
**UPDATE 30th JUNE 2020**
We are pleased to advise we are now starting to slowly resume normal operations and our office will be open from Monday 6th July mornings only (0900 1230) for telephone enquiries.
The majority of our bus services should be operational again from Monday 6th July. There are a few minor alterations to some timetables so please see our website for details. We are hoping the 227 Edwinstowe Service will resume in a few weeks time. Telephone bookings for outlying villages will also re-commence from this date. Please ensure you ring our office by 12 noon the day before travel if you require the bus to pick you up.
Moving forward we are working on a new day excursion list, with a view to resuming these late August/early September. Social distancing will mean we can only operate on a limited seat capacity and we understand passengers will need to wear masks and use hand sanitizer when boarding the coach.
All holiday tours have now been cancelled until 22nd August but we are remaining optimistic they can resume again late August/early September. We are currently in the process of contacting hotels and visitor attractions to check they are open and able to accommodate our bookings. If you are due to travel on a holiday tour late August/early September, we will contact you in due course to confirm it is definitely operating and about paying the balance.
The lockdown has meant the majority of our vehicles have been off the road but we are now taking steps to slowly get them operational again with deep cleaning and servicing. If you have a private hire booking from July onwards we would be grateful if you could email us to confirm whether it is required so that we can ensure a suitable vehicle and driver are available.
Thank you again for your patience and understanding during these past few months it is still a long road ahead but we are looking forward to taking you out on trips and holidays again. Your patronage keeps us all in a job and so we look forward to getting back to some sort of normality soon!
As a small family business, we are deeply concerned the impact this dreadful pandemic is having on the country: the leisure and hospitality industry in particular seeming to be the worst affected. We are of course equally aware that our customers and passengers are being affected financially and would like to re-assure everyone your holiday payments are safe and our aim is to offer a fair and empathetic approach to refunds where requested.
Thank you again for your patience and understanding
PLEASE NOTE - FROM SATURDAY 21ST MARCH OUR OFFICE IS LONGER OPEN ON A SATURDAY MORNING UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE
