Coach Transport for Incoming Tours to the UK
It’s not surprising to know that both coaches and minibuses play a vital role throughout the UK and Europe.
They help to transport millions of visitors around the country each year; showing tourists from here and far destinations and attractions they might not otherwise see.
At Coach Hire Plus, we work with various other travel operators in other countries that send groups to the UK to promote the already thriving tourism industry.
As best mode of transportation, the coach especially plays a vital role in carrying tourists and visitors to destinations, attractions and hotels throughout England and Europe each year. Minibuses are seen to be one of the most important elements to building a buoyant local tourism economy and making visitor attractions successful.
During 2012, over 2.4 million overnight trips were taken by domestic residents as part of an organised coach tour in Great Britain. This accounted for on average, 8.6 million overnight stays, contributing a whopping £617 million to the domestic tourism economy. Not surprisingly, when overnight road trips using regular coach and bus services, this figure then increased to £1.4 billion. (VisitEngland/Great Britain Tourism Survey).
It’s not surprising to know that hotels throughout England depend on coach groups for a large part of their business. With the number of tourism visits to the UK set to grow for years to come, one thing is certain that coach and minibus transport is a necessity for the tourism industry.
There’s no denying that coaches especially, are one of the cleanest and efficient forms of transport which reduce congestion and transport costs. A coach that is carrying up to 50 passengers is said to take the place of more than 20 cars, freeing up space in car parks and on the roads.
There are so many benefits of using coach transport in the UK, including the easy transportation of hundreds of people at any given time. Not only this, coaches are environmentally friendly, convenient, and allow all passengers to relax in comfort. More so, coaches are proven to be seven times safer than travelling by car.
