Category: UK Coach Holidays
Travelstyle specialises in taking the hassle out of arranging a holiday by taking care of all of the travel and accommodation for you. If youâ€™re trying to organise a group coach holiday then weâ€™re the ones for you â€“ with a single booking you can eliminate all the stresses of chasing up hotels and transport. Not only that, but with larger groups youâ€™re eligible for discounts and even customised trips! As always, our partnering hotels provide dinner, bed and breakfast, and there are private bathrooms and tea and coffee-making facilities in all the rooms.
Superb Prices for Flexible Breaks
Groups of 10 or more receive a 5 percent discount on the list price, and if youâ€™re organising a holiday for 20 people or more then you can specify your own pick-up point â€“ making it really convenient and easy to take a big group away with you. If youâ€™re booking for 30 or more, then we can do you some really outstanding deals, since we can dedicate a whole coach to you alone. As well as a low deposit on your tour and a contact number for 24-hour peace of mind, you can put together a tailor-made trip that takes in the destinations and highlights that you want! You can specify particular hotels, excursions, travel dates and pick-up points â€“ all to suit your budget. Group organisers even go free of charge.
Booking a Group Coach Holiday
Signing your group up is easy. For smaller groups just use our handy smile finder as normal to browse all of our deals by location and month (and donâ€™t forget to check out last-minute section for other bargains). Weâ€™ll apply the discount for you, and you can let us know about designated pick-up points, if applicable. For assistance with regular booking you can also call us on 0844Â 682 7000.
For groups of 30 or more contact our Groups Coordinator Vicky MacDonald on 0844 288 1106 or message us on our group coach holiday corner!Â We offer cut-price travel insurance (discounts of up to 20 percent) and if there are single travellers then we always try to keep the single supplement down â€“ or even remove it altogether.

Then there are the Victorian resorts of Llandudno in Wales, Brighton or Scarborough. If you want unbeatable value, fun for the kids and loads of entertainment laid on, why not take a look at a break at one of the five Pontins camps scattered around the country?
Alternatively, you might prefer to holiday further afield. We have some great sightseeing tours to Scotland, Ireland and the continent â€“ so if youâ€™re tired of the British weather you can head for the Costa Brava, the French Riviera or Venice!

In its heyday after the war there were some 30 Pontins resorts scattered around the UK. Although most have now closed, there is still enough demand for traditional seaside holidays that five remain: Camber Sands in East Sussex, Ainsdale Southport in Merseyside, Prestatyn Sands in North Wales, the original Brean Sands in Somerset and Pakefield in Suffolk. Each offers the same chalet accommodation, swimming pools, a massive range of more than 70 free activities â€“ with a special emphasis on keeping your children busy so you can have some time out â€“ and the helpful â€˜Bluecoatsâ€™ who make sure everything runs smoothly and provide much of the entertainment. Each is set in stunning countryside, with great beaches on your doorstep as well as nearby theme parks and other attractions, picturesque cliff-top walks and little towns to discover. In the evenings, thereâ€™s plenty for the grown-ups too, with pubs and entertainers of various kinds â€“ a number of famous actors, singers and comedians started their careers as Bluecoats and youâ€™ll often find household names dropping in to wow the crowds.
