As a Group Travel Organiser (GTO) for your own group, we invite you to explore our inspirational coach travel ideas and find tour itineraries & holiday destinations based around your preferences.

All itineraries can begin in your local pick-up location around the UK or, if you are an international group, at any airport or sea terminal in mainland Britain.

Our aim is to exceed your expectations and create that perfect coach tour package for you to enjoy as much as your fellow travellers.

Get involved in the planning but let us do all the hard work, such as booking hotels, filling in forms, ringing attractions etc., for you. Simply look forward to your holiday and, once you are on the move, sit back and relax - we'll take care of all the small details for you.

Looking for something completely different for your group? Want to arrange a tour around a theme? Interested in a specific part of history? Love railways? Are you part of a church group and would like a religiously inspired group tour?

We have you covered - our special interest tours are designed with YOU in mind! A hand-crafted special interest holiday is created specifically for you & your party as a private group tour, personalised to your individual tastes, giving you all the freedom to make your own choices.

Our philosophy for Group Travel Organisers is simple: Give us the theme, topic or interest and we will begin the process of arranging the perfect tour for you and your group to include your theme, not only as a static piece within a puzzle, but as a flowing storyboard throughout your holiday to your chosen region.
