Joining your holidays

(N.B. These are correct as of 1 January 2016 - from time to time we may need to change our pickups. Please refer to the copy of our latest brochures for the most up-to-date information)

PARK & RIDE 

Choose to park at our Head Office which is staffed and secure 24/7 for an additional charge (please see below). Located just off the M1, junction 26.

We have now changed the way our customers can use our Park & Ride, still the most convenient way to start your holiday, it will allow us to make our services much more efficient. From 1st January 2016 our Park & Ride services will now only be available for 4 or more day tours.

However we will be offering *free Park & Ride services to our customers travelling with us from Sheffield, Chesterfield and Leicester postal codes.
*Subject to availability, address confirmation is required at the time of booking. Full terms and conditions apply.

Taxi from your front door - for the ultimate in convenience and relaxation we will arrange to collect and return you to and from the Departure Lounge. There is a modest, additional charge for this service based on your postcode location, please call us directly for a quote. Terms and conditions apply.*

*Price quoted is per person based on a minimum of 2 persons per taxi from one collection point as per the lead name on the booking. There is a charge of £10 for each additional pick-up / drop off. For single travellers wishing to take advantage of our taxi pickup service a 50% supplement may apply. Prices subject to change.

We reserve the right to pick up additional holiday makers en route and may substitute another vehicle if appropriate. Taxi pick-ups must be booked and paid for no less than 28 days prior to departure.

Taxis which are used on a Bank Holiday will incur a 25% increase to the cost per person.

 

PICK-UP INFORMATION

Our pick-ups points are designed to provide as many local connections as possible without creating long, drawn out journeys for the first passengers on the coach. We have 6 regular pick-ups for shorter tours and an additional 5 are added for longer holidays. Each pick-up has convenient parking nearby - please call for more information.
