Our Coach Interchanges

All you need to know about our interchanges

Our Coach Interchanges


On our coach holidays, we offer free coach pick-ups from over 650 convenient joining points nationwide. 

If your holiday is travelling via an interchange, at your joining point you will join a "feeder" coach. These coaches travel to a small number of joining points near to you (usually no more than six) before heading to one of our interchanges or a motorway service station. Here you'll find a place to sit, relax and enjoy light refreshments before joining your holiday coach. 

This type of network is often referred to as a "hub and spoke" system, with the interchanges or service stations acting as "hubs" and the joining points feeding into them the "spokes".

Shearings Coach


Our complete luggage handling service is included free of charge. We'll load your cases onto your feeder coach, and you won't see them again until we bring them up to your hotel room for you – everything's taken care of.
