Familiar and Unfamiliar

If you travelled with us over the busy summer period you may have come across a member of staff whose face is familiar, but you couldn’t put a name too. Well, Eamon has returned to the fold to help us out over our busy period, and if you want a chat, he still supports Manchester United, but has swapped his land rover for a motor bike! Also joining us is Steph (Eamons partner), who is a very, very rare but talented lady in the driving world, holding both HGV and PCV licences plus a motor bike licence ! She also has in an interest in gardening when not behind the wheel of a vehicle.

The Twins

On passing our depot at Sandbeds you may have thought you were seeing double, (unless of course you had been in the Airedale Heifer next door, in which case you were!) as we now have two smaller 34 seat coaches, which externally look identical ! Our latest coach is in fact 6 months younger than its “twin”, and they are certainly not identical. One is red inside, one blue, and one has a toilet fitted, the other not. Plus there are many smaller differences which have surprised us considering such a small age difference. Both vehicles take their turns in the mix of work we do, and are proving very popular and comfortable vehicles not only on our own excursions and tours, but with private hire groups as well.

It Shouldn’t Happen to a Coach Operator

This is the title of Alan’s new presentation which he does for group meetings, and is becoming very popular with tales of what coach drivers hotel rooms are like, bizarre questions we get asked, and how Alan managed to find himself shut in a prison with the coach party awaiting his return ! If you think this may be of amusement and interest for a group you are a member of, please contact the office on office@jaktravel.co.uk or telephone: 01274 566200 for further details.

Travel Insurance

From 1st January this year we will no longer be offering Travel Insurance on our holidays, as we have taken the decision not to renew our authorisation given by the Financial Conduct Authority for the direct sale of travel insurance. The process was becoming extremely time consuming, bureaucratic and expensive to operate for just the one insurance product we sold, so we have said enough is enough.

We will now recommend an insurer for you to contact, as we believe it is extremely prudent for you to be insured, though of course, you are free to make your own decision whether you take the travel insurance through the company we recommend or go elsewhere. It is not compulsory to take out Travel Insurance (though recommended) for tours within the United Kingdom, but it is compulsory for tours outside mainland U.K. and we do need proof of adequate insurance being in place before travelling to destinations outside the U.K.
