Summer 2016

The New Year has once again seen us extremely busy with the constant arrival of cruise ships into the port of Tauranga. The cruise ship industry is flourishing and with over 80 ship visits this season, the Bay of Plenty tourism revenue intake must be of great satisfaction to all of the local operators. Royale Coachlines vehicles are in great demand and we are pleased to announce the latest addition to our fleet – a 5 star+ Scania 51 seat touring coach which provides extraordinary comfort and presentation to our valued present and future clientele. Already this coach is heavily booked for the remainder of the summer season with customers realising how fortunate Tauranga is to have a coach of such quality. This coach brings our number of vehicles to 8, enabling us to cope with groups ranging in size from 22 passengers, to 200 plus passengers and the only 4 and 5 star coaches available in Tauranga. You can view photographs of these vehicles here. Several of the coaches are booked for nationwide tours this summer, so whether it be for day trips or longer excursions, we can cater for your needs at very competitive prices. School trips are core to our business with many Probus groups, Garden clubs, local firms and industry based operators availing themselves of our services.

As indicated in previous newsletters, Royale Coachlines owner/operator, George Oliver also owns and manages Luxury Airport Shuttles, which provides the added bonus of having a fleet of smaller high quality vehicles (4 to 19 seats and everything in between) available if you have a smaller group wishing to travel. Many of these vans can be dry hired – i.e. drive yourself which cuts down the cost of having to pay for a drive as well. Look on the luxury airport shuttles website for details of these vehicles.

We hope that your summer travels go well and please don’t hesitate to request a quotation from our office for your next trip away – be it near or far or for large groups or small.
