New UK and Europe tours from Shearings
by Jessica Pook
Agents are able to secure a UK or European tour with a £1 deposit when booked by January 31, 2021.
The escorted coach tour company has expanded its UK offering with over 200 holidays, in anticipation for another ‘staycation’ summer.
UK coach holidays start from £219, whilst coach pick-up points and self-drive breaks are priced from £99.
Further afield, clients have over 70 coach, rail and river cruising options to choose from as part of the operator’s new Discover the Very Best of Europe brochure.
As part of the £1 deposit scheme, clients need not pay the remaining balance until 42 days before departure for coach and river cruise holidays, or 28 days before for self-drive breaks.
Clients booked on a Shearings’ tour before February 28 can change the dates or tour without an admin charge and anyone booked who contracts the virus, or has to self-isolate, up to 14 days before travel, can re-book for another date free of charge.
Shearings’ Head of Retail Sales, Ashley Dellow said: “Travel agents have had it really tough, but despite the ongoing pandemic there is optimism, thanks to the vaccine programme. The two new Shearings’ brochures are excellent selling tools and combined with the low deposit and covid guarantees agents can sell with confidence.
“Shearings has a very loyal, repeat booking, customer base and I believe pent up demand will fuel a surge in bookings for holidays this summer, with clients even booking a few trips this year - something to look forward to and to make up for lost time. With just a £1 deposit there really isn’t anything to lose!”
