Rabbie’s Puts Britain Back In The Saddle

Coach touring company, Rabbie’s (www.rabbies.com) is back on the road with tours departing from Manchester, London, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Inverness and Aberdeen.

And the operator has implemented a range of enhanced hygiene and social distancing measures to allow for a worry-free holiday option to explore the hidden gems of home.

Brits are keen on domestic holidays with a majority (45%) expecting to travel in the UK in the next six months*.

Rabbie’s tours provides itineraries that are different to most competitors, planning destinations and attractions that are open with a supporting driver-guide to fill in the miles between stops with lots of stories and anecdotes.

This time round, Rabbies’ expert team has put together new procedures that go further than Government guidelines and don't get in the way of discovering incredible history and heritage. These include face-mask coverings on board, temperature checks at departure points and allocated seating to comply with one-metre indoor social distancing rules.

Robin Worsnop, Founder, and CEO of Rabbie’s said: “We are pleased to re-instate our scheduled tours in addition to private tours. We have always seen the advantage of travelling in small groups because of local communities and environmental footprints, however, in these strange times our mini-coaches are the perfect way to enjoy the different parts of the country in a safe manner.

"We’ll always be up to date with the latest Government advice and only take passengers to trusted accommodations and attractions.”

TOURS
Isle of Skye

You will explore the iconic 13th-century Eilean Donan Castle; be moved by the stunning geological formation that is Quiraing Mountain Pass; and go looking for the elusive mythical monster at Loch Ness – which holds more freshwater than all of the lakes in England and Wales combined.
