This ensures that the kilometres covered each day by our vehicles from the tour starting points to finishing in the evening are at an absolute minimum. Compared to other operators this equates to a minimum saving of 20 kilometres per day per coach. Operating on a 361 days per year that’s a saving of 7,220 kilometres per year per coach.
