Advantages of coaching holidays

By: Keith Barrett

If you've not taken a coaching holiday in recent years then you can be forgiven for picturing an old coach, cramped conditions and a poor quality holiday.

Such trips were once firmly aimed at the budget end of the market - often low on quality but with equally low prices.

The major tour operators have faced competition from a number of areas and have to look at the way in which they operate. As a result, many coach tours now look to provide a luxurious way of travelling.

One of the biggest advantages of these types of holiday is that they now offer the opportunity to travel in comfort and style.

The coaches used will generally be of an executive standard, meaning that they will often have toilet facilities, drink facilities and some form of entertainment onboard.

The increasing range of destinations served by such tours means that you are no longer restricted to trips within the UK.

Popular new destinations include the US, Russia and the Far East.

Many of the tours are operated by specialists who have spent a lot of time, money and effort on research. As a result, you can expect to find that accommodation is of a high standard.

Itineraries have been tailored in such a way as to ensure that they are considerably more interesting. Want to visit Prague, Budapest and Vienna within a single holiday? Not a problem - such itineraries are now far more common.

Coaching holidays have improved beyond recognition. They now offer a comfortable and enjoyable holiday experience.
