Regular guests will know how invaluable a knowledgeable and helpful driver is and how it makes all the difference on a coach holiday. What’s more, a coach driver with real character and personality puts the WOW factor into a holiday or short break.
With drivers having such a key role to play in the delivery of outstanding service to our guests, it is only right that your feedback provides significant contribution to judging our Driver of the Year award. In addition to this, a range of other driver related skills are taken into account, ensuring the award recognises the drivers who perform to the pinnacle of their profession throughout the season.
This long running award always generates a lot of excitement and competitive spirit amongst our driver team.
