Coronavirus (COVID-19) Statement - 26 March 2020

Dear Customer

Due to the recent government announcement to stay at home during the Covid-19 outbreak we have reluctantly made the decision to suspend the operation of all day excursions and holidays until further notice, to protect our drivers and customers.

We hope you understand that this decision has not been made lightly and we will be back up and running as soon as physically possible. In the meantime if you have a booking with us, we will hold the booking on account for you to be able to spend on another excursion with us in the future. Please also note at this time you cannot amend or change any bookings online.

At present our offices are closed to protect our workforce and therefore we ask any communications made are in writing to the following and we will endeavour to get back to you as soon as possible. Please contact the emails below

We would like to thank you for your understanding of this matter which is completely out of our control and we hope to see you onboard very soon.

 Acklams Coaches 


British Coach Tourism Awards 2020 finalist

British Coach Tourism Awards 2020 finalist

We are pleased to announce that Acklams Coaches has been shortlisted for the British Coach Tourism Awards 2020 in the following categories:

  • Holiday Programme
  • Coach Tour Operator – Medium Fleet (6-15 Coaches)

Holiday Programme - This award is open to entry from any UK-based tour operator that undertakes a programme of coach holidays. Judges will be looking for a current programme that demonstrates innovation and creativity, in a brochure that is easy to navigate, online and in print if required, with clear price points and an easy-to-understand summary of what the tour and price includes. With so many brochures now meeting these criteria, the judges will be looking for something that makes the winning programme stand out from the crowd.

Coach Tour Operator - The judges will not only be looking for a coach tour operator with between six and 15 tour coaches that demonstrates a commitment to quality, innovation and training, customer service and has an excellent industry reputation, but also examples of how it has developed and enhanced its product over the last year.

**Fleet size for this category is dependent on the total number of tour coaches operated, not overall company fleet size.

We wait to find out the result in Birmingham on Wednesday 25th March 2020.
