We try and make sufficient stops to ensure comfort for passengers). The high vantage point from your coach’s window means you can take in all the glorious scenery, whether it’s a vast rural landscape or an urban city centre.

    On rare occasions your coach may not have a W.C. facility on board.. We have a strict “no smoking and no alcohol” policy on all our coaches. During transfers we may use an alternative vehicle (and smaller coaches) which may not have the above facilities.

If you need assistance in identifying what currencies you would need whilst travelling, please feel free to ask us.

You may also need your passport for identification as you would for traveller's cheques. Even though in Europe credit and debit cards are widely accepted, keep in mind the exchange rate may be poor and commission will be charged.

    A: In Europe it’s fine to drink the water from a fresh-supply tap. We suggest that you should always ask the locals or the hotel reception if in doubt.


    Q: Can I smoke on the coach?
