Anderson Travel turns 25
London based Anderson Travel is celebrating its 25 years in business this year and marking the milestone by replacing the majority of its fleet with 19 new coaches. This is part of a £4m investment programme, which brought together each of the Anderson Group of companies under the main banner of Anderson Travel earlier in the year. This year also sees the launch of Anderson Travel’s newly developed website.
Anderson Travel started with one coach in 1988, which Director, Mark Anderson, drove himself. It now has over 25 vehicles, two Tower Bridge premises and more than 45 staff. The CoachMarque firm offers coach travel, airport transfers and a wide range of excursions and short breaks within the UK and across Europe to 85,000 plus passengers a year. Highlights of recent years include being the chosen mode of transport for guests attending the royal wedding in 2011 and chauffeuring Team GB around to various promotional and social events during the London 2012 Olympics.
Mark Anderson said, ‘Anderson Travel is proud to be one of the longest standing independent coach firms in London. Over the years we have seen various coach operations come and go but it is through our focus on professionalism and high quality, customer friendly drivers and staff, expert in-house technicians, first rate service and our team’s incredible wealth of experience and knowledge that sees us here today celebrating 25 successful years of business. It’s down to this that we have built up a fantastically loyal customer base over the years and therefore been able to extend our offering and services to the extent that we have. We’ve enjoyed the journey every step of the way and look forward to the next 25 years.’
