Full size touring coaches for large groups

If you have a large group then that is not a problem either

The largest coaches are 50 seat coaches but we also have access to vehicles half that size.

With large groups if your average passenger is bringing more than one large case and a small item of hand luggage it might be the luggage capacity of the vehicle rather than the number of passengers that drives the correct size of vehicle required. The point being that estimating the amount of luggage you will be bringing is just as important as knowing how many people in your group.
