Scottish Coach Holidays with Caledonian Travel
Coach travel in Scotland started to take off in the mid 1980’s with a growing demand for an alternate way to travel across the country. Before this the only viable option would’ve been to take a train but thanks to the rise in bus tour operators there was also a growing competition between the two industries. Since trains were fairly expensive at the time, the bus tour operators provided a vital service for younger people and lower income families that wanted to travel over a large distance within Scotland.
Long before this Caledonian Railway was a large railway operator in Scotland. Even though they were operational during the century change between the 1800’s and 1900’s the name Caledonian is still relevant when it comes to travel in Scotland.
Coach Holidays Scotland with Caledonian Travel is one of the most popular ways to travel through the country. It also offers its customers the opportunity to visit the rest of Britain via coach trips and for the ones wanting to go even further they also have routes going down in to continental Europe.
Coach Holidays have been around for quite a while but before the latest recession they were mainly something that senior citizens would travel on. Because of the lower incomes and lack of jobs people are now looking at Coach trips as a great alternative to get that well deserved break during the summer or winter.
The reason why this industry has long surpassed the train as a long distance travel method is mainly due to financial aspects. Trains can cost around £40 from Scotland all the way down to London while some coach operators offer one way tickets for less than half of that. If you go further in to Europe the price gap between Coach Holidays and train holidays will only increase.
Travelling with a reliable coach operator also means that they can sort out your entire trip. The transport, hotel and anything else that your trip might include will all be taken care of as soon as you pay for your trip.
