The start of each new year is always accompanied by ambitious resolutions and good intentions for the 12 months ahead – we are going to eat healthier, watch less TV, go to the gym once a week, and, of course, travel more. These are all great goals, and we might keep them up for January, but, all too often, the pressures of work and home life (and our bank balance!) cause these ambitions to fizzle out. Well, if your New Year’s resolution is to travel more, we want to show you why coach hire is the perfect solution for your travel needs.
Coach hire is affordable
If there is one thing that shouldn’t hold you back from travelling, it is money: if you really want to see a place, there is always an affordable option available.
While flights can be hugely expensive (even if you are just going to Europe), coach travel is significantly more reasonable – mainly because it is much cheaper to run a coach than a plane. As well as helping you to justify your trip financially, the affordability of coach travel might mean that you have more money to spend on fun things while you’re there. It may even enable you to tick off more of the places you promised yourself you would visit in 2017! Check out our day trips and see where we could be taking you this year!
Travelling by coach is a chance to meet new people
A great thing about coach travel is that it always offers opportunities to meet new people. If you are travelling on your own, then it can be reassuring to know that you can stick with other people on your trip; or, indeed, if you are part of a group, it can be fun to hang out with new faces. Even if you prefer doing things on your own, it is always nice to be able to talk to someone who has shared the same experiences as you.
Coach hire enables you to truly explore a place
When you travel by coach, or hire a minibus, you are often able to visit places that would not be accessible by plane, train or boat. If you go to Austria on a ski trip, for example, you might go on a day excursion to a natural beauty spot in the mountains – something you would not otherwise be able to do. There are some truly amazing coach journeys that you can take, and hiring a coach or going on a prearranged coach trip opens up a whole range of activities that enable you to explore a place properly and experience everything it has to offer.
