Our first trip out since March!

On 11th August 2020, our first day trip departed to Highclere Castle (Downton Abbey).

This is the first time our wheels have turned since March due to Covid. All safety precautions were in place and the trip was a huge success.

Thank you to those that travelled with us and for the excellent feedback we received.

We have some Exciting News….

We are happy to announce the following trips are going ahead. We cannot wait to get our wheels back on the road. It has been a long time since we came to a halt back in March.

Day Trip – Highclere Castle “Downton Abbey” – Tuesday 11th August 2020 – £40.00 per person Limited seats available

Holiday – Coastal Yorkshire, Whitby – Monday 7th September 2020 – £440.00 per person, 4 nights dinner bed and breakfast.

We shall continue to monitor our other upcoming tours and advise you accordingly. We are working in tour date order and the safety of our passengers and staff is our main priority.

We hope to see you on one of our trips soon and thank you all again for your continued support.

“Honk for Hope”

Robin Hood Travel Ltd, Warrington’s of Ilam and Aimee’s Travel pictured in London on Monday to support the “Honk for Hope” convoy to Parliament Square. After an early 5am start from the depot they started their journey to London where they met up with another 420 plus coaches from around the UK en route to form miles and miles of coach convoy into the Capital, each honking their horns in the hope that the Government will listen to the plight of the coaching industry.

Bus, rail and air transport have all received funding, coaches don’t fall into any of those categories and do require more help. We do have the Furlough scheme which ends in October and can access a number of loans – but these do need to be paid back.

It is such a serious issue and Team Robin Hood did us proud representing us on Monday, which David and I are extremely grateful for – and on a lighter note, I think they enjoyed their day out, it gave them chance to catch up with everyone and I’m told they never stopped eating and drinking, as each of them took snacks and sandwiches and cake and cake and more cake!

Here at Robin Hood Travel, we are in a very privileged position with having the best clients ever, as most of you have allowed us to transfer your holidays and day excursions to next year, many coach operators are not that lucky and therefore do require support.

We can’t wait to get the wheels turning again and hope by September we shall have a few holidays and day trips running, but we do need to be confident that our coaches, attractions and hotels can keep us all safe and well.

Take care everyone

Christine Rose and David Eyre
