Coaches & Drivers
Our drivers are one of our greatest assets. When selecting them, we pay particular attention to their driving skills. They will take responsibility for travel documents such as ferry tickets and admission. Our coaches comply strictly with all EU driving regulations, paying particular attention to drivers’ hours and we are well ahead of seat belt legislation. While abroad we only use coach operators who conform to the same stringent regulations.
We encourage and can help with preliminary inspection visits, especially to new destinations. Such visits help group leaders to properly risk assess all aspects of the proposed tour in advance. We can of course provide relevant information on location, accommodation, ferries and transport if you decide that an advance visit is not possible.
We will be happy to supply information for your Risk Assessment Forms. All our coaches are fitted with seat belts and are regularly inspected.
