Try a Coach Holiday with luxury, laughter and lingering memories!

Gone are the days where travelling by coach was in an old cramped rickety vehicle on a day trip to the seaside.  Coach holidays have developed significantly in the choice now on offer and the facilities available on board. In fact, in the current economic climate, it provides a cheaper alternative to car, air, boat or train travel.  Never considered travelling by coach before?  Why not make this the year that you do.

Here are just a few more benefits to consider:

Door to Door.  Collected from your front door by taxi, taken to your holiday destination in comfort and style by luxury coach and delivered back home at the end of your holiday with no hidden extras, as all travel, hotel accommodation and excursion tickets are included in the price.

Money Saving.  Divide the cost of the coach by the number of passengers and the cost per passenger is far less than many other modes of transport.

Environmentally Friendly.  Coaches produce six times less pollutant than a plane and consume less fuel per passenger than a fully loaded car.

Stress-Free.  A professional driver/chauffeur to handle the pressures of traffic, navigation and luggage handling allowing you time to relax, meet new people and enjoy the views.

Safety.  Coach travel is seven times safer than travelling by car, with all coaches fitted with seatbelts and a full health & safety briefing given by drivers before departure.

Comfort.  Comfortable, reclining seats with more legroom than most planes and trains and the best views as you travel above hedge height.  All our luxury coaches now have air conditioning and on-board toilet and refreshment facilities.

Organised Itinerary.  Experience an array of well-planned and varied excursions, encompassing some major tourist attractions and tours arranged around specific interest groups (ie. steam trains, historic cities).


Don’t just take our word for it, here are some recent comments from our customers:

“We really enjoyed our recent New Year break to Ironbridge. The coach driver, P, and the courier, S, were attentive throughout and he proved his driving skills at least a couple of times manoeuvring the large coach around narrow, bendy Shropshire roads.  It was a lovely weekend and I would definitely think of booking another Woods holiday. This was the first time for us both.”


“We have just returned from the Shropshire and the Dee Valley tour and it was quite delightful. The scenery was wonderful, the hotel and our bedroom were first class, the visit to Shrewsbury and the boat trip were great. We enjoyed the train, and the cruise along the Llangollen Canal was superb.  The coach was very comfortable, and the driving was smooth and safe.  Many thanks for a lovely holiday and we look forward to receiving the brochure for next year and making our choices.”


“Thank you so much for a lovely holiday. Your organisation skills were wonderful, and nothing was too much trouble for you to make sure our needs were provided for.  The coach was so lovely and roomy, compared to the other coach holidays we have been on.  This was our first time with Woods, and will not be our last.”

“Having only recently “discovered” that Surrey came in the area for door to door Woods travel, our first trip was to St Agnes for Tinsel and Turkey and we have now returned from a really enjoyable Easter Holiday, Easter Lakes & Dales, to the Shap Wells Hotel. Our driver was first class, very friendly, helpful and informative on excursions. The hotel location was spectacular and the content of day trips very well planned. We are right now perusing the 2018 brochure in the hope that there may still be availability on Summer month holidays as we very much hope to enjoy many more travels with Woods.  Finally, a big thank you for the Easter Chocolate, a lovely surprise and very much appreciated.”
