COVID-19 Update - National Lockdown 5th Nov to 2nd Dec 2020

Date Added 03/11/2020

NATIONAL LOCKDOWN AND HOLIDAY/DAY EXCURSION DEPARTURES IN NOVEMBER...

Following the government announcement of the second national lockdown on Saturday 31st October 2020; and as the safety of our customers and staff remains our top priority, we have had to make the unfortunate decision to cancel all holiday and day trip departures from Thursday 5th November up until Wednesday 2nd December 2020. On a positive note, we have had 17 holidays carrying 420 happy customers since we relaunched our programme back on 7th September, scoring us 4.7/5 for our COVID-19 Safe Operating Procedures which has been fantastic! In addition since we relaunched our excursion programme back in early August we have carried over 1400 passengers on our Express Excursions and 230 on our Day Excursions, it really has been amazing! It is a sad situation that we have had to cancel our November departures but it is in the best interest for your health and safety that we do so. Our Reservations Team are contacting all customers who are affected; prioritising by departure date. Please note, Our Reservations office will also be closed to visitors from Thursday 5th November until further notice, for booking or enquiries please call 01564 797000 or email Reservations@johnsonscoaches.co.uk.

We’d like to remind our holiday customers that your money is protected by Bonded Coach Holidays (BCH), a government approved financial protection scheme for consumers of package coach holidays. All Johnsons holidays are covered by the BCH scheme as standard.
