Coach holidays to Europe are a thing of beauty. While our travel wings may be somewhat clipped at the moment as nations around the world take precautions to get the spread of the COVID-19 virus under control, there will come a time to explore some more. So, if you are currently doing your bit to flatten the curve, and find yourself with a little extra time on your hands, we believe it’s a great time to dream up and plot out future trips.

After all, if there’s one thing that keeps us positive over here at Expat Explore, it’s the thought of far-flung destinations, new cultures and inspiring experiences. Which brings us to the topic that’s been getting quite a bit of airtime of late – coach holidays and why this type of trip should 100% be on your radar right now if you’re considering future holiday options.

First things first – what are coach holidays? Let’s define that before we move on. Coach holidays are trips that include bus transport, and, when you travel with a company like Expat Explore, it includes accommodation and excursions as well. Some are short, some are long, most are awesome. Here are a few reasons why this type of trip is so popular with travellers from all around the globe at the moment:

The benefits of travelling with a group

Many people have a yearning to travelling, but may not be in a relationship, or have a partner who wants to, or can, travel with them. This is why coach holidays for one person and singles over fifty are very popular. However, coach holidays for families and groups of friends are just as great. See, travelling in a group has a whole bunch of benefits. Whether you’re a solo traveller or travelling with your team, it’s a great way to make new friends and become acquainted with other people who are passionate about travelling. In fact, many of our tour participants go on to become lifelong friends and meet up for more journeys along the way. 

The safety of coach tours

Coach holidays are also great if you’re concerned about safety while you travel. Since your transport is built into the structure of your trip, you don’t need to worry about getting lost, or using public transport between cities or towns. While most of our travellers get to grips with the trains and busses in the cities we visit pretty easily, and use it to get around cheaply, the fact that our coach is on hand to cover larger distances takes a lot of pressure off. After all, it’s a lot simpler (and more enjoyable!), to sit back and watch the scenery roll by while a seasoned driver navigates the road than to rent a car or figure out long-distance public transport yourself.
