Award winning coach holidays

Over the years we have been extremely proud to have won many awards, including Coach Holiday Programme of the Year for its innovative and creative programme with a good mix of holiday destinations, Tourism Director and Coach Operator of the year.

We were delighted to have won two awards at the prestigious British Coach Tourism Awards 2018. These were for Coach Driver of the Year (Michael Blowers) and Coach Tour Operator of the Year, Large Fleet.

At Group Travel Awards 2017 we won the Winner of Best Coach Operator award for Groups as voted for by readers of Group Travel Organizer magazine and reflects the highly-valued opinions of our customers.

In 2020 we won a top National Award for our coach drivers after they volunteered to help the ambulance service when lock down struck. The driving team was name national winners of the Road Haulage Associlate (RHA) Heroes Award after spending 14 months with Bristol Ambulance’s Emergency Medical Services. Many of our drivers spent more than a year with Bristol Ambulance, whilst the country was in lockdown which in turn prevented the company from running holidays and day trips.

What the Judges had to say:

Coach Tourism awards “One of the oldest coach operators in the country demonstrates how modern and up-and-coming it is – including a clear investment in both new vehicles and new technology”. We were particularly impressed by our dedication to safety, personal service and professional marketing. The judges also appreciated that we are a business that goes above and beyond the coach industry standard, which helps to raise the profile of the industry as a whole”.

We would like to say a huge thank you to everyone at Bakers Dolphin and all our customers who have enjoyed travelling with us.
