Groups are a significant market and for many businesses bring in regular income or advanced bookings.
Coach & Tour Operators, as well as membership associations and independent group organisers play a vital role in bringing millions of visitors to South East attractions and hotels.
Passengers travelling by coach help the local economy, by £1.4 billion by through organised day trips and overnight stays).
Coaches are also one of the cleanest forms of transport and reduce congestion. For ever coach carrying 50 passengers, it takes the place of more than 20 cars, freeing up space in car parks.
However, it is not just the more obvious coach group/travel trade that falls into this sector. Organisations such as U3A, Probus Clubs, retirement associations. special interest groups and social groups are a firm contributor to business income. Group sizes are often smaller and they may even travel in car convoy but are still a fantastic group opportunity.
Our aim is to simply ensure we promote South East England as the perfect
the destination for group travel and provide plenty of inspiration, and signpost to partners involved in our activities.
Our group travel programme includes
Direct Mail Opportunities - not currently available
