Jones Holidays launches day trip package
Jones Holidays, part of Llandudno-based Alpine Travel, has launched an all-new programme of day trips called Day Excursions by Coach.
The Day Excursion programme operated by Jones Motor Services ceased to operate in late 2017 following the acquisition of Jones Holidays by Alpine Travel earlier that year.
The Day Excursions programme previously operated by Jones Motor Services enjoyed many years of popular service for its customers. Alpine Travel now believes that the time is right to relaunch a new series of day trips and excursions under the Jones Holidays brand.
The package starts in May and includes day trips to what it describes as ‘new and exciting destinations as well as many old faithfuls’.
The additional product portfolio joins the Jones Holidays coach holidays programme. The operator reports it has seen much growth in this in recent years.
Chris Owens, managing director at Alpine Travel, said: “With so many in our local communities across North Wales having been told to stay at home for much of the last 12 months, we felt that as the vaccine roll out was now bringing this awful virus in check, that now was the right time to launch this brand new programme of day tours and excursions by coach, enabling local people to get away and enjoy a great day out with friends.
“Since we’ve been in lockdown it’s given us the time to reassess our product portfolio for our successful Jones Holidays brand, and also given us the opportunity to consider business development opportunities moving forward. We know our customers very much enjoyed the Jones day trips and we were sadly not able to acquire these when we took over Jones Holidays in early 2017.
“The landscape has now changed and what better time to launch our new day trip programme than as we come out of a pandemic and people are not only keen to get away, but also looking for something different to do. To offer day trips once again under the name of Jones Holidays is something we have wanted to achieve for some time and are very excited to be launching the programme for day trips for 2021 and beyond.”
This news follows the launch of the Jones Holidays 2021 holiday departures and its most recent brochure. The operator plans to soon launch an array of new holidays for 2022.
