Coronavirus Update 17/03/20

Important information regarding our holidays, short breaks and day trips programmes

In light of the recent government statement on Monday March 16th, we have taken the difficult decision to cancel all of our departures with immediate effect up until the end of April 2020.

This has been an extremely difficult decision for us, but given the latest government advice we feel we have no choice. The safety and wellbeing of our passengers is our immediate priority.

Whilst we find ourselves in very difficult and unusual times, we are confident that this is a temporary situation and we believe that we will soon be back up and running. With this in mind, all May departures are currently operating as planned.

We are asking you, our valued customers to support us as much as you are able to, by transferring your holidays and day trips to later dates in the year.  

We will be contacting all passengers booked to travel during March and April, in departure order, to assist you with rebooking your breaks. We are experiencing a high volume of calls at the moment so you may experience a delay speaking to us, but please be assured that we will be contacting everybody booked in the coming days.

Our office is currently closed to the public, to protect our staff.

May we take this opportunity to wish you well during this extraordinary situation and thankyou for your understanding and continued support.

Coronavirus Update

We would like to reassure all of our much-valued customers that Woods Tours is taking the current COVID-19 outbreak extremely seriously. We have additional hygiene measures in place to ensure that our coaches are thoroughly clean and sanitised throughout your journey with us.

We will continue to monitor government advice and follow the guidance given. We are committed to ensuring that our passengers stay safe,  informed and enjoy their trip with us.

There are currently no restrictions on travel to any of the UK destinations we offer, and all our tours and day trips are operating as normal. We will of course be in contact with our customers should the situation change.

We recognise these are unprecedented times and therefore, if you are worried about travelling or concerned about booking a holiday, please call us. We will work with your individual circumstances as best as we can.

We can’t always promise that refunds will be able to be issued but we will wherever possible transfer deposits or hold credits providing we haven’t ourselves incurred any costs.

To help you book with confidence we have also implemented a temporary change for you.

During March and April secure your 2020 holiday with a £1 per person deposit

We are confident that we can work together through these challenging times and we thank you for your cooperation.

A Cheese Ploughman's Lunch will be served, followed by Gateaux. Onboard, you’ll also take part in bingo where there will be great free prizes to win.
