Galloway has always taken great pride in the quality of its operations, tours, vehicles, drivers and level of service, and has gained a first class reputation amongst the public and industry alike for the high standards it has set and continues to meet. The Galloway Group, established nearly 40 years ago, includes one of the UK's leading educational study tour operators, together with one of East Anglia's major luxury coach operators, offering its popular door-to-door holiday programme from a large area of Norfolk, Suffolk and Essex.
Our head office and vehicle depot is in Mendlesham, Suffolk, where we have a well-equipped workshop with a top-class engineering team to carry out preparation, maintenance and repairs on our fleet of over 40 vehicles. The fleet comprises the highest quality touring coaches, buses and other vehicles. We have four Sapphire Stars that were developed for our top of the range coach holidays utilising 4 star hotels, with many enhancements to increase the quality and luxury feel still further, such as extra legroom and luggage space, leather inserts to seat backs and head rests. Over recent years, the company has opened four sales offices in Stowmarket, Ipswich, Colchester and Felixstowe, where coach tours and excursions can be booked, as well as the company’s European and Worldwide Air Holidays, Cruises and Disney Paris Breaks.
Galloway is a member of the Confederation of Passenger Transport, the main organisation representing and advising the coach and bus industry. We are also one of the founder members of the Consortium of Independent Tour Operators, who are a collection of high quality companies who work together to maintain and improve standards. Galloway is accredited by both CoachMarque, the only universally recognised kite mark of quality in the UK coach industry, and The Guild of British Coach Operators that represents some of the UK's top coach travel, hire and bus companies.
As well as the reassurance of travelling with a long-established, well-respected and sound company, clients’ money is protected through the Bonded Coach Holidays financial protection scheme. This scheme is approved by the Department of Trade and Industry as satisfying the requirements of the Package Travel Regulations, and is recognised by ABTA. If your holiday includes air travel, financial protection is provided through the Air Tour Operators Licensing scheme. (ATOL number 6268)
Galloway is fully aware of its responsibilities concerning the safety of its passengers. We have a Safety Management System that details what steps we take to check the reliability and safety of each element of your trip, and we can provide a Generic Risk Assessment that identifies and evaluates any hazards.
