PROVIDING TRANSPORT SINCE 1974
Five new vehicles will enter service on May 24, designed for even greater comfort.
The JG Travel Group is introducing brand-new deluxe ‘JG Explorer’ coaches, with five new liveried vehicles set to enter service in May 2024. Supplied in co-operation with several of the group’s long-term coach operating partners, and built by Scania and Irizar, these new versatile, high-end touring coaches will be exclusive to JG Travel Group.
Each Irizar I6S efficient, Super-Hi 13.2m Tri-Axle coach will have a stand-out design with a range of features for those customers looking for an extra level of comfort. Each vehicle will feature just 44 superior luxurious seats, providing extra legroom for everyone.
The modern layout also includes an easily accessible floor-level, rear-mounted toilet and a kitchen, plus an onboard Nespresso coffee machine enabling customers to purchase a coffee which will be dispensed by the driver during comfort breaks. The coach is also fitted with a unique, fresh filtered cold water tap which customers can use to fill complimentary water bottles, thus cutting down on the need for disposable plastic onboard.
Entertainment will be available throughout the journey as all JG Explorer coaches will have access to Azimut, the wireless media system, providing films, music and quizzes. Each seat is fitted with a USB charging port and Wi-Fi is free, so customers simply need to bring along their smartphone or iPad and plug in.
The coaches will operate a range of tours with both the Just Go! Holidays and National Holidays brands in Britain, Ireland and Europe, offering a choice of over 250 departure dates annually.
New branding has been created which will be used on the exterior of the coaches, encompassing both the National Holidays and Just Go! Holidays brand signatures, it will be used in the brochures and on the websites to mark those tours where a special JG Explorer coach will be available.
In keeping with their business model of working with a range of coach operator partners to provide the transport element on tours, the group has secured the support of five long-term partners who were eager to get involved in this new project. These include Alpine Travel of Llandudno; Crosskeys Coaches of Folkestone; Hunters Coaches of Leeds; Prospect Coaches of Stourbridge and Taylors Coaches of Somerset.
Paul Mason, director of operations at JG Travel Group comments: “This is such an exciting development for us, which builds on the demand we are seeing from our customers to spend a little more on a deluxe experience. The name ‘Explorer’ was chosen as we felt it was an extension of our long-term vision for our customers to ‘Get more out of life’.
“Before embarking on this project, we undertook extensive market research with our customers and spent time with both manufacturers and coach suppliers to come up with the ultimate, thoughtful touring coach design specification. These new vehicles mean that we will be able to offer the option to travel in even greater comfort and style.”
Lee Wale, Scania UK Sales Manager adds: “We are delighted to partner with JG Travel Group on this exciting new project. These new coaches will take a customer’s coach journey experience to another level, and we look forward to getting them on the road on May 24.”
