All our Coach Trips depart from the Garden Centre, there are no pick ups on the way, so we get to the destination more quickly. You are welcome to leave your car in our car park for the day FREE!
Bookings are made on a first come, first served basis and seats on the coaches are not reserved. Payment for the majority of our coach trips needs to be made in full when you book - due to the nature of booking shows and events we cannot offer refunds (unless we have to cancel - a full refund will then be made with as much notice given as possible).
If you change your mind : Please let us know as soon as possible. If the trip is full with a waiting list, we may be able to re-sell your ticket & give you a refund. If this is not the case, unfortunately we will not be able to refund any monies paid. PLEASE NOTE - Any coach holidays run by Pennywood Tours, our travel partner will be subject to THEIR terms and conditions.
