Modern and Luxurious Coach Travel 

 

When travelling with Shearings, you can enjoy stylish surroundings and ultimate comfort whilst on-board any of our coaches. We pride ourselves on having the best facilities and features, making your travel as enjoyable as possible. All our coaches have ample leg room, total seat pitch of up to 91cm, reclining seats, air conditioning, hot drinks facility, on-board toilet and much more.

In recent years, we have invested over £22 million to ensure our coaches are one of the most safe, modern and comfortable fleets across the UK. Most recently, we added 29 brand new Mercedes Tourismo Euro VI  coaches, offering the highest quality and service to our customers. We also pride ourselves on customer safety. We've recently invested in the Lytix DriveCam Programme, in order to add an extra element of safety to our fleet and we have a mobile engineering team to ensure our fleet remains the best in class at all times.


Travel in Ultimate Comfort 

Each seat on our coaches has been designed with customer comfort in mind. The luxury cushioned fabric and reclining back allows you to relax throughout your journey and take in the magnificent views along the way.  What's more, the total seat pitch, which comprises the distance between the back of your seat and the back of the seat in front, is between 84cm and 91cm, compared to the 74cm - 81cm seat pitches on most standard economy class flights. This means we offer extra legroom and more space than airlines such as British Airways and Monarch.

Environmentally friendly travel 

Coach travel is one of the greenest ways for you to go on holiday, with six times lower carbon emissions than flying and four times fewer emissions than driving. It's also a great way to sit back and take in the surrounding scenery, while enjoying a relaxing, hassle-free journey with like-minded passengers on board one of Shearings luxury, environmentally friendly, coaches. Our experienced drivers will also keep you entertained and informed about the local areas as you pass by.
