Coaches

All coaches are fitted with arm rests, TV, DVD/CD and toilet facilities (on occassions). Toilet facilities on coaches have limited capacities, and are only capable of handling liquid waste and therefore we advise passengers to use them only on an ‘emergency’ basis, as the tank can only be emptied at regulated areas due to the nature of the waste.

 

All coaches are either air conditioned or air cooling systems, lowering to a maximum of 8-9ºC from the outside temperature. Only food which is dry and cold can be taken onto the coach. Curries, chips and other hot food are not allowed to be consumed on the coach. In addition, chewing gum and ice , burgers, ice cream and other greasy foods are not permitted on the coach.
