Full size touring coaches for large groups

Cruise Shuttle Bus From London

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

The largest coaches are 50-72 seat coaches but we also have access to vehicles half that size.


With large groups on cruises the capacity issue is not normally passenger numbers but luggage.

 

UK coaches are built to European traveller requirements, where one large case is perfectly adequate. A typical 50 seat coach will be able to accommodate around 60 large cases in the luggage hold.

 

For a group travelling with North American flight allowances a 50 seat coach will typically only be able to accommodate the luggage of 35 such passengers maximum.


With large groups just as small groups multi- drop and pick-ups from hotels is routine and if required we can arrange a guide.
