Hunts Coaches Temporary Site Closures

📌Update –This COVID–19 crisis is new to us all and we are working hard to ensure that all our decisions and actions are focused on looking after our customers, our staff, and our suppliers. This has led to the decision to close all our sites by the end of this week. Our Depot will close today and Travel Office on Friday. We intend to re-open on Thursday 16 April 2020. Customers with bookings that have been cancelled due to this crisis have been informed. Should further cancellations be required customers will be contacted when we return to the travel office.

We are extremely grateful to have such a wonderful team that are clearly highly regarded by everyone as we have received messages of support and best wished for which we are thankful.

This is our 90th year in business and we are looking ahead to brighter times with many tours available for later in the year and into 2021. Although we have minimal staff available at this time our website is still active www.hunts-coaches.co.uk. If you have an emergency, we will try to help 01507 463000.
