Joining Points

Convenient coach joining points

Join your feeder coach at your nearest joining point – we’ve over 510 to choose from throughout England, Scotland* and Wales** and to make sure your journey to the port is as direct as possible we guarantee this will be a maximum of five stops to pick up other passengers† – then travel to Dover or Folkestone to meet your tour coach.

On Silver Service tours, for operational reasons, your feeder coach journey may be by Executive coach. Your tour coach, which you will join at Dover or Folkestone, will be a Silver Service vehicle.

Please note:
Tours departing from ports other than Calais and Folkestone offer a limited number of joining points, please call for details.

Door-to-Door service

On coach holidays of 9 days' duration or more and Single Traveller coach holidays, you don't even have to think about getting to your local joining point. If you live within 20 miles of one of our free joining points, we'll pick you up from your home and take you to meet your feeder coach, then return you back home at the end of your holiday. On European coach touring holidays of 9 days or more, the cost of this is just £30 per booking each way (up to 4 people per booking). For Single Traveller holidays, it's free of charge.



Crossing the Channel

For most continental holidays we use the short sea crossings from Dover to Calais or Eurotunnel from Folkestone to Calais.
