Some people think that coach holidays are exclusively for older, retired people, but that couldnt be more further from the truth. Coach holidays are for anyone who wants to travel in the style of a road trip, but without the headache of arranging it, arranging stops, routes etc and want the freedom of being able to head for almost any destination of their choice. There are a multitude of companies offering coach holidays throughout the UK, which include, Grand UK Holidays, Gold Crest Holidays, Leger Holidays and Shearings Holiday, just to name a few.
Now that youve made up your mind that youre going to take a coach holiday trip to and around the UK, you probably want to know what to expect, especially if this is your first trip away via coach:
There are plenty of advantages to taking a coach holiday trip as opposed to travelling some other way. People who are travelling by way of coach experience the convenience of not having to plan out an entire trip on their own; this is often the first ‘stress reducer’, taking away the initial hassle of planning and arranging.
Another advantage of travelling by coach is the fact that you can sit back and enjoy your trip, while socialising with a whole group of people instead of driving yourself and having to be focused the whole journey. People who have travelled by way of coach love the comfortable, spacious seats, the entertainment provided by way of cable T.V. and radio and just the fact that they dont have to worry about getting lost or finding their own way around.
It also gives you a chance to see where you are going. You don’t need to focus on traffic, road signs and directions. You can just look out of the window and experience the changing scenery of your journey. Within the UK, being a small island, you can see wonderful shifts in scenery in short spaces of time; from mountain / hilly ranges, to rambling rivers, beaches and peninsulas and of course the beautiful and traditional English villages.
Some popular destinations in the UK are:
