One question that we are often asked, with regards to travelling to more distant destinations such as Barcelona or Venice, is whether we think it’s better to travel by coach or by air. While jumping on a plane might be quicker, it might not be the best option for your group. Take a look below at some of the reasons we think coach travel is great.
The benefits of coach travel

There’s no denying that it is a long journey, but throw in regular comfort breaks and a chance to have a good walk around while on the ferry during the channel crossing and it’ll fly by!
We use comfortable executive coaches, most of which are equipped with a DVD player, W/C and reclining seats.
We all know how restrictive some airlines can be when it comes to luggage – both hand-held and checked in. Coaches are much more accommodating.
Knowing your suitcase is in the coach’s luggage compartment means you won’t arrive at your destination to find your bag took a detour at the airport!
Get picked up and dropped off at your school, saving any hassle getting to and from the airport.
Time spent travelling together enables the group to bond on the journey.
A much cheaper way to travel, especially if your group is around 35+ students!
You don’t have to share your coach and it stays with you all week. This gives you the added benefit of being able to get to activities which are located outside of the resort!
That’s right! With coach travel you get a 1:8 free ratio, compared with 1:10 for flight!
