Interchanges

The majority of our holidays operate using interchanges. Clients are collected from their local joining point and taken by feeder coach to a central interchange. Here they transfer to their tour coach. The same procedure operates in reverse at the end of the holiday. For more information on interchanges, look at the area from which you intend to start your holiday.

Select your interchange from the list below
North West – Burtonwood
North East – Bowburn
Yorkshire – Woodall
Midlands – Tamworth
South East – Reading



Holidays from North West England, North Wales and West Yorkshire

All clients are conveyed to our purpose built Coach Interchange at Burtonwood Services on the M62 near Warrington. This facility is part of the Welcome Break Motorway Service Area and clients are able to use all the facilities of the Motorway Service Area. The coach station is provided with dedicated coach bays, seating and shelter.

Approximate timings are as follows:

Outward:
Arrive: 10.00amDepart: 10.45am

Please note: Pick up times for all tours are finalised approximately 14 days prior to departure and will be indicated on your travel ticket. Clients booking less than 14 days prior to departure may be offered a restricted choice of pick up points.

Special Note: Please consider the relative locations of your joining point, the interchange point and your eventual destination. It is possible to get from any joining point to any destination but some combinations are not advisable. For example, it is possible to go on the Northumbria and Beamish tour from Kendal, but to do this you would travel down to Burtonwood first which makes a very circuitous route to Newcastle.
