We are delighted to present to you our 2022 Holiday Brochure. Our apologises for the brochure released later than normal. This is a result of issues we have faced due to the pandemic and completely out of our control. Thank you for your patience and understanding. The issues have been resolved, though the implications may mean that we will only be able to release future holiday brochures in January. The brochure this year is not in its usual format in a bid to keep costs down.

As usual we have tried to put together a varied mix of holidays to suite all tastes and pockets. Our prices not only reflect the quality of service you expect from C & J Tours, and the fact that all holidays have an included excursion programme, but also the fact that hotels have had to increase their prices for 2022 in order to cover their costs. The average hotel price for 2022 is just over £80 per person per night, that is over £300 for a 4-night, 5-day holiday, before we add the cost of the coach and any visits! Like most companies in the leisure and tourism industry, C & J Tours have taken a massive financial hit as a result of the pandemic. The money we have lost over the last 2 years we have written off. We will never get it back and will not inflate our prices in an attempt to do so. Our holidays are not cheap and as a company we are aware of the wide choice of operators available. As a husband and wife run company, operating just the one coach, our tours are not repeated every week and we do not have the buying power of the big coach companies and as such we cannot complete with them on price. Nor will we compete with some of the more ‘cost conscious’ companies as we do not want to lower the quality and standard of service that we have become renowned for and are proud of.

With regard to COVID, we will continue to follow government guidelines, which may mean that face coverings will have to be worn whilst on the coach. We politely ask you not to travel if you have any of the following symptoms – a high temperature, a new, continuous cough a loss or change to your sense of taste and smell. If you have to cancel your holiday, please check with your insurance company if you have COVID cover and can make a claim. For the foreseeable future on boarding the coach we will continue to monitor your temperature, request that you sanitise your hands before boarding the coach and offer single travellers a seat to themselves. With the exception of the Floriade and possibly the Isle of Man holidays, we are not asking for it, but hotels, venues and ferry companies used on our holidays may require you to provide evidence of your COVID-19 status, so it may be idea to have this with you on your holiday just in case.  You can provide evidence of your COVID-19 status by either 1) demonstrating a full vaccination either by a COVID Pass or NHS COVID Pass Letter or 2) demonstrating a negative PCR test/LFT completed within 48 hours of your visit either by a COVID Pass or showing a NHS email or text message received after a negative PCR test/LFT.

We try but are the first to admit that we do not get things right all the time. However, we care passionately about what we do, how we do it and you, our passengers. We have made a couple of changes in the way we operate and what we do for 2022. The biggest change is that we no longer offer travel insurance with any of our holidays. It is no longer viable both in terms of time and money for us to continue to offer this insurance. On a positive note, we have added the bus stop in Halstead Road as an extra pickup point in Gosfield to help the passengers living on that side of Gosfield, and we will once again pickup in Manor Street, Braintree. We will continue to review this because as far as we are aware, no provision has been made for coaches in the new development in Braintree. Another positive change is that from 2022 refreshments on the coach, on both our holidays and excursions, will be complimentary (refreshments will be offered only when safe and legal to do so).

A big THANK YOU to all our passengers who have who have stayed with us and supported us over the past 2 years, persevering with holidays and excursions being cancelled and rescheduled. Your continued support, loyalty and generosity has meant a lot to us and kept us going on our darkest days during the pandemic. We say Travel with C & J Tours and travel with friends, the support from our loyal passengers we have received during the pandemic shows we as a company certainly do travel with friends.

Let us put the past 2 years behind us and look forward to 2022. Whether a new or regular traveller with C & J Tours, we hope that you find something of interest in our 2022 Holiday Brochure. We thank you for taking the time to browse our brochure and look forward to welcoming you on board and having the pleasure of your company on one or hopefully more of our holidays.

Many thanks,
Tina, Dave & Bethany.
