News - Grand UK boosts range and quality for 2013

Our sister company Grand UK Holidays has reviewed and enhanced its range for 2013, introducing better quality hotels and adding 40+ new options.

The upgraded 2013 programme includes escorted coach tours in the UK and Europe plus river and ocean cruises.

Group tour organisers can use the brochure for inspiration, or work with Grand UK’s sister brand, just for groups!, to tailormake their own group holiday. 

Harold Burke, sales director at just for groups!, said: “Our groups always demand good value from their holidays without compromising on comfort, so we’ve added more hotels in the three- and four-star bracket.
“The introduction of our new ‘Grand UK Gold’ tours in 2012, with more spacious and luxurious coach travel, demonstrated how customers want pampering and to feel special on their holidays, so more of our hotels offer higher standards for 2013.
“Having a fresh range of new choices each year means we keep our loyal customers contented, and attract new ones too.” 

New UK holidays include a ‘Let’s Go Racing’ break to Great Yarmouth (£329pp for five days) and ‘Adam’s Farm and TV Footsteps’, visiting the farm featured in Countryfile, as well as sites associated with Cranford and Lark Rise to Candleford (£339pp for five days).
The hugely popular ‘Lark Rise to Downton Abbey’ holiday appears again (from £349pp for five days), demonstrating the growing demand for trips to see sites associated with TV serials.
The operator also features a range of activity breaks, offering cards, bingo, bowling, dancing and rambling, which will appeal to groups.

New European tours added for 2013 include ‘Dubrovnik Riviera & a Taste of Montenegro’ (from £499pp for eight days); ‘Valkenburg and Highlights of Three Countries’ (£549pp for eight days); and ‘Alpine Panoramas’ (£649pp for eight days).
‘Around the World in 80 Gardens’ offers escorted holidays to Hamburg’s 2013 International Garden Show which will showcase gardens and landscapes within seven ‘worlds’ of experience (from £399 for six days).

There is a new river cruise, ‘A Taste of the Rhine & Moselle’ (from £489pp, six days); and new tours to visit National Trust country houses and gardens.
Short breaks start from £99pp for four days, and there are magical mystery tours from just £149pp for four days.
