Coliseum Coaches’ ‘unprecedented demand’
Southampton based Coliseum Coaches has seen ‘unprecedented demand’ for its trips to the Channel Islands. An extra coach has had to be laid on to deal with the numbers of people wanting to travel to Guernsey, after tickets for the day trip sold out just a week after the new Summer Day Excursions 2014 brochure was published. The operator became part of the Lucketts Travel Group in 2012 and since then it has been able to expand the number of excursions that it offers. The £38 ticket to Guernsey includes coach travel to Poole and a foot passenger’s fare on the ferry.
General Manager at Coliseum Coaches, Mark Pitter, said, ‘It’s clear that despite signs of an economic recovery people are still looking to get the most for their cash. Our trip to Guernsey offers amazing value for money, getting passengers to the Channel Islands and back in safety and comfort for less than £40. It’s this kind of offer that makes coach travel increasingly popular, with deals that just can’t be beaten by other forms of transport.’
