Coach tourism improves among the British

Published on : Friday, March 17, 2017

Coach tourismNew research shows that millions of British are choosing coach holidays instead of cruises and jet-setting. More than 5 million people from United Kingdom opt for coach trips with £1.4 billion every year. Single decker trips abroad cause more than half of coach journeys and 40% of coaching holidaymakers are under the age group of 65 years as per a recent research.

The survey goes a long way in laying assumptions about coach travel to rest as conferred by CTA chief executive Chris Wales. To quote Wales, ‘’ as you might expect, coach travel is most favored by the over-65s but almost 40% of our respondents are below that age. More than a third of over-65s see coaches as a luxury form of travel, which any coach traveller knows, and almost a quarter of those who don’t use coaches nevertheless regard them as luxury.’’ Wales added, ‘’ As well as giving us such valuable insights, the survey shows how coach tourism is on the rise.


It is tremendously popular among existing users, approaching half of non-users plan to give it a try within five years and as the UK population ages the market for coach holidays is growing significantly. The chief reasons, in fact, were that coach holidays take the hassle out of travel and they’re a sociable way to travel,” continued Mr Wales. “Value for money came third and price wasn’t in the top five.’’
