Adventures near & far – holidays by coach from Forfar, Dundee, Perth & Edinburgh

Post Thumbnail

If you’re the kind of person who loves to travel but could do without the hassle of planning routes and booking hotels along with the stress of wrong turns and honking horns as you drive on unfamiliar roads – then a coaching holiday just might be the perfect answer.

Coach travel is very much in vogue these days and you may well have watched the popular Channel 4 series, Coach Trip and wondered if this is the kind of holiday for you. Coaching is regarded as a greener, safer, more economic and enjoyable way to travel – especially in times of ever-rising fuel costs and concerns about fossil fuel usage.

Coaching presents the opportunity to discover places both in the UK and abroad that air travellers often miss.

Explore ancient castles, sink your toes into a sandy beach, visit iconic cities, stroll through history in medieval towns, relax in leafy countryside or be awestruck by glorious cathedrals and natural wonders.

Window gazing as you travel.

Coach travel has come a long way since bygone days of bone-rattling buses with no facilities and the dubious pleasure of sharing a room with a stranger! Nowadays, you step aboard a state-of-the-art vehicle with comfortable reclining seats, generous leg room, climate control and panoramic windows as well as an onboard restroom should nature call.

Then there is the convenience of joining your holiday locally with pickups in locations such as Forfar, Dundee, Perth & Edinburgh – saving you both time and money

Itineraries are well planned to make the most of your well-earned holiday and with the coach’s satellite navigation on screen; you can follow the route and know where you are at any given time.

Some tour operators even provide an onboard welcome pack with refreshments and travel items to make your journey even more comfortable.

Then there is the convenience of joining your holiday locally with pickups in locations such as Forfar, Dundee, Perth & Edinburgh – saving you both time and money.

Coaches also take you right to your hotel, avoiding the additional expense of taxis from an airport or train station.

Relaxing on a coach holiday.

What’s more, the buying power of a reputable coaching firm like Glenton Holidays means that great deals can be passed on to readers of The Courier so you stay in excellent hotels and visit landmark attractions for a fraction of the price an independent traveller would pay.

Hotels are carefully chosen and range from family owned seaside ‘home from homes’ to four star properties from well established chains with superb leisure facilities. Overall, coach holidays offer outstanding value for your holiday pound.

Travelling with like-minded people who bid you a friendly good morning, chat about the day’s events over dinner and soon become friends is another huge tick on the coach holiday checklist.

As is knowing your travel, accommodation, food and excursions are all taken care of leaving you free to relax and take in the sights.

Simply put, coach holidays are stress free and convivial with a tantalising slice of adventure thrown in. Little wonder this type of holiday grows in popularity every year.

Join us in 2020 for a coach journey of discovery.
