Blog – Why Coach Holidays Are Increasing In Popularity

Rover European run coach holidays across Europe

Once deemed for more senior travellers and retirees, coach holidays have taken on a new identity in recent years. Some coach tour companies still only cater for the very mature age bracket, however most others including Rover European have seen an increase in younger travellers, both baby boomers aged 45 to 68, and young professionals. Why? Because traveling by coach is stress free most importantly. Coach travel allows you to have your very own chauffeur who knows exactly where they’re going. Guests don’t need to worry about hiring cars, planning their journeys and navigating themselves on new, and sometimes challenging roads. Plus, there’s the little things like filling up with fuel and finding suitable places to park which is left to the driver, allowing you to make the most of your trip away.

Besides being a stress-free way to explore, guests on coach holidays have the benefit of their own expert tour guide on board with them! Our staff at Rover European have many years’ experience providing outstanding coach travel and memorable holidays to some of the best cultural destinations across Europe. They know the history of the locations they tour and are familiar with the tourist hotspots and cultural gems. Our dedicated staff go above and beyond for their guests and in many cases are more than just ‘the coach driver’. Previous guests who have travelled with us tell us our drivers have a great knowledge of the regions visited and are a go-to source for local information often giving recommendations for the best experience or un-spoilt views!

In an increasing digital and isolated world, coach holidays give like-minded people the opportunity to explore new areas together and, in some instances, have been known to be the catalyst to the beginning of new relationship or friendship. Coach travel is fun and travel is exciting. Guests enjoy socialising with one another whilst they kick back, relax and enjoying the comfort of quality coach travel, good food, adventure, culture and scenic views.

With the price of fuel soaring, driving, especially to Europe, holds even less appeal to those keen to explore the cultural delights that the continent has to offer. As an established tour company, we’re often eligible for discount at many of the tourist attractions we visit throughout Europe and the UK. Besides these savings being passed on to our customers, using our brilliant  negotiation skills, our guests can sometimes benefit from extra little perks that wouldn’t be available to individuals travelling without an organised group.

As well as this, people tell us they like the idea of coach travel because it’s safer than traveling by car. Statistically this is true. Here at Rover we take the safety of our guests very seriously. Our stylish fleet of coaches are designed to the highest specifications, with the latest environmental emissions controls and are maintained in our own workshops by our experienced engineering staff. Our spacious, modern and air-conditioned coaches are fitted with antilock braking systems and speed limiters and benefit from having large, tinted windows offering panoramic views which ensures our guests safety and comfort. Rover also have the benefit of a full back up service 24hrs a day, 365 days a year both in the UK and Europe.

With interesting and customized itineraries, exciting destinations and home-to-home departures, our UK and European 2018 tour programme offers fantastic holiday opportunities for everyone. Whether you’re a thrill seeker looking to escape the daily grind in pursuit of action and a cultural adventure or you’re looking for a trip that can provide rest, relaxation and picturesque views, we have the coach holiday for you.
