A big thank you to all our loyal and regular customers, without you we would not be here. We would also like to extend a warm welcome to new travellers. Travel with C&J Tours and travel with friends. As usual we have tried to put together a varied mix of holidays to suit all tastes. All our holidays have an included excursion programme, so there are no hidden extras to pay, and are planned so they are relaxing, with interesting itineraries so you get the most out of your holiday.
Travel in style on our luxury mercedes coach, fitted with luxury seats with extra padding, seatbelts, armrest, adjustable footrests, fold down tables and usB charging points. there is also complimentary wiFi onboard. our luxury coach also features a toilet/washroom, hot and cold drinks facilities and is air conditioned with a state-of-the-art air filtration system. For your safety the coach is fitted with cctv, secondary braking systems, lane departure and collision warning systems and is maintained regardless of cost by Mercedes.
travel By coach and travel green. Our coach like most modern coaches in the country is powered by a low emission, highly efficient Euro 6 engine. Per passenger kilometre, our coaches’ greenhouse gas emissions are lower than cars, trains, and planes (Dept for Transport’s Transport & environment statistics, Oct 2022). Plus, travelling by coach is one of the safest ways to travel, it is user friendly, efficient, and affordable (busandcoach.travel). Let us do the driving, no need to worry about which route to take, where to park and the cost of fuel. So, join us on one or more of our holidays, sit back, relax, travel with friends, make new ones and enjoy the scenery, all in the knowledge you are in safe hands, you are doing your bit for the environment and supporting a local company.
we don’t use Feeder coaches, taxis, or interchanges on our holidays, so there is no need to make your way to a central point laden with luggage and no hanging around for ages at a service area or layby waiting for the feeder coach or taxi to arrive.
we don’t have countless pickup points, only ones that are local, and convenient. This way we are not stopping at every other bus stop, and you are not on the coach for ages going around just collecting or dropping off people. It does mean that for some we pick up close to your house, sadly for others it may mean that we go past your house, we appreciate it is frustrating, your understanding is appreciated.
reserved seats. When you book your holiday with C&J Tours you are allocated a seat, giving you the opportunity to select a seat to your liking. You keep this seat for the duration of your holiday. Seats are offered on a ‘first-come first-served’ basis from the front of the coach. We do not pre-sell seats before our holiday brochure is launched and everyone on the mailing list is sent a brochure in the post at the same time.
we don’t use Fancy sales gimmicks to get bookings and get you to part with your money, just good old fashioned customer care.
we don’t do constant cancellations. We may have to cancel the odd holiday, but we will try and operate holidays even if bookings are low that way you as our customer have the confidence to book with us.
we don’t operate our holidays on a shoestring. This may mean we appear to be expensive. We are the first to admit that on the face of it our holidays do appear expensive when compared with those from other companies. But are they? All our holidays have an included excursion package, meaning there are no optional extras to pay for. When comparing the price of our holidays with those of other companies, please compare like for like, also compare the price if you were to travel independently, then judge the price of our holidays. Also, we put a great deal of time and thought in the planning of the excursions to ensure that where we are going is suitable, what we planning to do is achievable and the holiday will run as smooth as possible. We don’t always get it right, but we do try. Please bear in mind as well that hotel prices have rocketed over the last couple of years, and we are now paying on average close to £90.00 per person per night for dinner, bed, breakfast and visits. We have tried to price our holidays for 2024 to be affordable. We are proud to provide you with great value whilst maintaining the high standards we have become known for.
Financial security. your money is saFe with us! In accordance with the UK Package Travel & Linked Travel Regulations 2018, all monies paid to C&J Tours for our holidays are fully protected by Financial Failure Insurance arranged through International Passenger Protection.
single travellers. We feel that it is unfair that because you are travelling on your own, you have to pay more for a room at hotels. Unfortunately, that is the way it is. The single supplement stated on our holidays is what we are charged by the hotel, we do not mark up this price. On the coach single travellers are offered a double seat to themselves unless they wish to have someone sit with them.
Many of our regular passengers have been travelling with us for years, have become friends and make new travellers with us feel welcome and part of the family. So, if you have not travelled with us before give us a try. Travel with C&J Tours and travel with friends. We look forward to welcoming you aboard and having the pleasure of your company on one or more of our holidays.
