Adventure Coachlines restoring confidence
Adventure Coachlines, the new name for the coaching arm of NAT Group, has launched a series of day trips to coincide with the upcoming half-term. The move aims to restore confidence in coach travel while providing travellers with a low cost and convenient way to sightsee across the UK.
Adventure Coachlines is to run two excursions to Bath and the Cotswolds in October following the easing of travel restrictions and what it describes as a public appetite to explore UK destinations. Both journeys will comprise of two coaches and prices start from £8 for children and £11 for adults. Across the entire NAT Group fleet, stringent cleaning procedures using premium antiviral products have been introduced to ensure that all Welsh Government regulations are adhered to and passenger safety is preserved.
Additional measures include maintaining space between seats, the issuing of PPE for drivers and the availability of passenger ‘COVID Safety Kits’ which include antibacterial hand gel, antibacterial wipes, gloves and a face mask. Temperature checking for everyone onboard is also being rolled out across the coaching division.
Adventure Coachlines Sales Executive, Lauryn Tunnel, said: “The last six months have seen immense change within our business including streamlining services, extending routes, the launch of a brand new depot in Taffs Well and the introduction of new safety and cleaning measures – all of which have helped to ensure our passengers’ journeys are first rate – however, the coaching arm has been slower to show signs of recovery.
“The introduction of our Adventure Coachlines daytrips is a significant step in our ambition to return to some kind of ‘business as usual’ and we look forward to welcoming individuals, couples and families aboard to visit some beautiful parts of neighbouring England.”
