We were delighted to hear the details from the governments roadmap out of lockdown as we can now look forward to doing what we do best once again. As part of our commitment to helping the UK move out of a covid world, we have been issued the 'Safe Travels' stamp from the World Travel & Tourism Council in recognition of the changes we have made to reduce to the transmission.

We are delighted to announce that we have been shortlisted for the Route One Awards for Small Coach Operator of the Year 2018.

Earlier this month, Bob & Darren took the lovely people from Capita Social Club to Port Lympe Wildlife Park in Kent which overlooks the Romney Marshes and also gives you spectacular views over the English Channel.
Port Lympe is home to many species of animals and you can see plenty of them on their safari trucks which take you around their different reserves. We had the pleasure of seeing a 2 day old baby Giraffe! On foot, there is plenty to see and do, not forgetting the splendid gardens of Port Lympe House.
I think we may organise a day excursion next year. Port Lympe is owned by the Aspinal Foundation who also own Howletts which is also in Kent.
Organising these trips can be quite a chore, so if you are part of a social club, school or any other kind of group, then let our experienced team do it all for you (after all, that's what we do). Not only can we supply you a coach, but we can draw up an itinerary, make all your group bookings for attractions and accommodation anywhere in the UK or Europe so you can sit back and let us do all the work.
We are very proud to announce the completion of a quarter of a million pound investment with the delivery of our brand new Mercedes Benz Tourismo tour coach from Evobus UK as part of our continued commitment to providing luxury executive travel on our award winning holidays and day excursions.
This continued investment into our fleet will provide a positive contribution towards the four nominations we have received for this years British Coach Tourism Awards which include Best Holiday Programme, Best Day Excursion Programme, Coach Tour Driver of the Year and Coach Tour Operator of the Year (medium 6-15 coaches).
Fitted with a Euro 6 Mercedes Benz engine, this meets all of the emission standards set by the EU and its high quality spec will ensure you will all enjoy a safe and comfortable journey, near or far.
This coach is the perfect addition to our modern current fleet alongside our other Mercedes Tourismo, VDL Futura's and Setra 416GTHD's.
Eastons Coaches have taken delivery of a brand new VDL Futura 2, which will join our exisiting VDL Futura 2 luxury coach delivered in the later half of 2013.
The coach is one of three brand new vehicles being introduced to the Eastons fleet for 2016, signifying rapid fleet turnover and significant investment of around £1 million.
Once again, the vehicle boasts a Euro 6 emission standard engine meaning that the EU emission regulations are met and the output of harmful particles are reduced significantly when compared to the previous Euro 5 standard.
On the inside, the 52 seat coach hosts a range of features to make your journey with Eastons as comfortable as possible and has been specified with smart black, cream and red trimmed interior style.
Our third brand new coach for 2016 is due in the summer, expected to be around July.
Introducing Norfolk's newest coach, a brand new built-to-order Mercedes Benz Tourismo tri-axle. The coach is built by one of the most trusted car and commercial manufacturers in the world and was chosen by us for its sound reputation, excellent facilities and outstanding passenger comfort.
Turning Purple Coaches Green
Though purple on the outside, our new Mercedes Benz Tourismo meets strict EU Euro 6 engine emission standards. Coaches with Euro 6 emissions produce around 75% less Nitrogen Oxide emissions than the earlier Euro 5 standard, the new legislation sees emissions brought down to around 0.46 grams per kilowatt hours of these harmful particles being emitted.
Passenger Comfort and Facilities
Eastons have always had a careful eye for which vehicles we choose to add to our fleet. A large part of this decision is made based upon the passenger comfort and facilities on offer. The new Mercedes Benz Tourismo boasts reclining Luxline seating with three point seat belts.
On order for delivery in the first half of 2016 are two brand new executive coaches to join our fleet. Eastons will take delivery of a second VDL Futura 2, alongside a Mercedes Benz Tourismo. Both are produced by some of the most prestigious coach manufacturers in the world and are due for delivery in March and April.
