National Express has launched National Express Leisure, a new business focusing on the UK holiday and leisure travel market.

National Express Coach

The transport provider has brought together a number of existing businesses and brands, including Lucketts and Woods Coaches of Leicester, under the new banner and will offer both tailor-made and ready-made packages for holidays and leisure travel by coach. The new venture will enable groups to design coach holidays “from budget to boutique” to hundreds of destinations across the UK. 

Build-your-own packages via the Holidays by National Express website are dynamic with the ability to upscale according to demand. Group organisers will be able to design a combination of National Express Coach travel, hotels and attractions to hundreds of destinations across the coach operator’s network, packaged together with the company’s ‘Lowest Price Guarantee’ which promises to refund ”double the difference” if you find the same deal cheaper elsewhere.

Coach holiday short breaks for 2022 include coach and hotel bundles to Tenby, Cardiff and Blackpool, and coach holidays to Scotland include historical highlights and major attractions in Glasgow and Edinburgh from a range of departure points in the UK.

Pre-packaged deals with partner operators will offer set itineraries, from seaside breaks to countryside retreats, with pick-up points across the UK and door-to-door service on selected holidays. Coach transport will be provided throughout the duration of the holiday including hotel transfers and to planned excursions.

John Boughton, commercial director at National Express said: “This is a very exciting move at a time when more people than ever are looking to take a break in the UK.”

He added: “National Express Leisure will offer the best in convenience and choice along with the great value and high standards of customer service and safety we’re already well known for.”
