e Dear Friends,
Welcome to our 2013 Brochure, we expect that you didnt think that you would be seeing another one of these this year, and to be fair neither did we!
But after many demands to keep Golden Holidays trading and a change of heart with regards to retirement, we have decided to carry on with a new and very much improved business. We have taken over the coaches of Burtons of Alfreton and are continuing with their business, as it would have been too much for the area to bear if two quality operators were lost in the same year.
The introduction of better value holidays has been most successful and we are keeping the same format for 2013; late availabilities and short breaks have also proved to be popular, so it is our intention to provide more of these during 2013.
The Old Faithfuls which we all know many of you enjoy such as; Eastbourne, Llandudno, Great Yarmouth etc, will continue as before, but if you really want to try something a little more exciting then we can highly recommend our themed holidays, many of which have admissions and excursion costs included in the price.
We look forward to your continued support and providing you with the same level of service that we always have.

EXCURSIONSAll excursions are carefully planned to offer a balance of organised and free time. The coach travel on all excursions is included in the price; however, entrance fees, admission charges and show tickets are not included in the price unless otherwise stated in the itinerary. We reserve the right to alter, adjust and amend advertised itinerary times and days depending on the weather, hotel meal times and other influences outside of our control.
EXPERIENCED UNIFORMED DRIVERS/COURIERSOur drivers/couriers have been selected not only for their high standards of driving, but also for their caring, enthusiastic and friendly manner. You will find them willing to listen to requests and special needs, also to answer questions and queries throughout your tour. This is the Golden Holidays policy as we value our customers and wish you to come back time after time.
FINANCIAL SECURITYGolden Holidays operate a client trust fund account to comply with EU Directive 30/314. In the unlikely event that we should cease trading you are guaranteed repayment of all monies paid or the completion of your holiday if it has already commenced.
LATE AVAILABILITY HOLIDAYFrom time to time we are offered late availability holidays at short notice at some very special prices. If you are able to drop everything at short notice, then you might like to have your name added to our late availability mailing list or your mobile number so that we can text you with special offers. Please telephone now and ask for Pam.
GROUPSIf you are a group or party organiser please allow us to help, we have a wealth of experience in organising all aspects of coach travel and accommodation. Be it to organise a holiday, short break, outing or to see a show, we are available to arrange a package tailor-made to suit your individual requirements. Please telephone and ask for Pam or Tim.
HOTELSAll our hotels have been carefully selected with your comfort in mind. Accommodation is based on bed, breakfast and evening meal, unless otherwise stated, leaving plenty of time for the inclusive full and half day excursions, enabling you to enjoy the surroundings, scenery and places of interest. All bedrooms are en-suite with colour TV and tea/coffee making facilities. Many of our hotels offer regular entertainment which includes dancing, live music, bingo etc.
LUXURY COACH TRAVELYour safety is of paramount importance to us and our vehicles are maintained to the highest standards. This together with our fleet being fitted with road speed governors and conforming to the legal legislation safety measures, ensures our commitment to your peace of mind. Coaches are equipped with seat belts, reclining seats, tinted windows, curtains and some with toilet and drinks machine.
DOOR-TO-DOOR PICKUPYou will be informed of your pickup time 7 days prior to departure. You will be collected from your door by one of our feeder mini coaches or by taxi and taken to meet the main holiday coach at a suitable central location at Tibshelf. This eliminates hours of travelling around various pickup points and enabling the coach to commence its journey immediately after loading, the reverse applies on return.
LUGGAGEYour driver will take care of your luggage (you are not expected to carry your own suitcase), but the company cannot accept responsibility for loss or damage unless it can be proved that it is due to negligence on the companys part. We have now put a maximum limit of 15kgs (33lbs) in weight and no larger than 26ins x 8ins x 15ins in size. If the weight or size is exceeded there will be a 15 surcharge payable.
NO SMOKINGAll coaches are designated NO SMOKING zones. Passengers are reminded to refrain from smoking until the regular comfort stops.
Due to Health & Safety, please adhere to our Luggage conditions below, if you require any guidance please call us and we will gladly help.
