HOLIDAY QUESTIONNAIRE RESULTS  

We're thrilled with our Driver and Coach scores from our 2019 holidays, thank you to everyone that took the time to complete our questionnaire.

We asked you to rate our drivers on their 'willingness to help', the 'information' they provided to you, their 'driving skills and safety' and their 'punctuality and efficiency'. We are proud to tell you that the average score across all four criteria was 98%.

We asked you to rate our coaches on their 'comfort' and 'cleanliness'. We are proud to tell you that the average score across both criteria was 96%.


OUR COVID-19 UPDATE (AS OF 13.10.20)

First of all, we would like to thank our customers – and our staff - for your continued kind words, and support in these strange times. We are pleased to say that the office is up and running and Steph, Dee and some of our drivers have been working since the start of September, we hope that it won't be too long before they're joined by the rest of our wonderful team. Phones will be open from 09:30-16:30, Monday to Friday, but we are working with a smaller team than usual so if we don't manage to answer your call please leave a brief message with your name and number and we'll get back to you as soon as we can. Alternatively, please email enquiries@shawscoaches.co.uk. Our office remains closed to personal visitors for a while longer, but we look forward to seeing you soon.

In the meantime we will be releasing day trips via our eNews, social media and website. We are also working on our 2021 holiday brochure and happy to answer any questions you may have about specific dates and destinations, this will be released in November.


Our local Wednesday service between Peakirk-Newborough-Peterborough is currently suspended but we will let you know when this is back up and running.
