I write to express my thanks for providing the coach and, especially, the driver on our recent residential trip - both were outstanding. The driver was great, which has not always been the case with other drivers we have had from other coach companies over the years. He was helpful, friendly and always willing to be flexible. He knew the boundaries to maintain with the children but was never stand offish. We could not have wished for better, so many thanks to your company and to him.

We’d just like to thank you for the service you provided on our Wedding Day. Your coaches were clean, well appointed and punctual, your Drivers were courteous and friendly - even when we were rather slow on leaving the venue! Thanks again.

Gardner Travel have been absolutely marvellous - from the initial request for a quote to the moment we get off the coach at the end of our trip. Their drivers are friendly and polite and we have never had a moment's worry from their driving!
Everything went brilliantly on Saturday and the coach turned up right on time. We managed to get everyone aboard quickly and were away on time too. I'd just like to say thank you to the helpful, friendly office and to the driver, he was lovely and so friendly considering it was quite late. Perfect end to a perfect day :)
We have been using Gardner Travel for our Annual Holiday and Conference for a number of years now and always find the coaches very comfortable, the drivers very helpful and obliging. The back up staff are also very helpful including the office and maintenance department. A joy to work with.
