Travel and Logistics

In association with our parent business, KLM Travel, we can offer a number of options and transport combinations providing cost-effective and time-efficient transfers throughout the UK.

Our policy is to customize the best possible travel solution for each customer in accordance with the following criteria:

  • Group location / pick-up point
  • Travel budget per head
  • Transport preference - road, rail or air

For challenge events including rail and/or air transport our charges include free collection within the challenge corridor and drop off en route at the end of the challenge at a designated rail terminal or airport on our direct route back to base location in Keswick.

Alternatively, we can also provide a complete turnkey travel option with return transfer door to door by road, rail and/or air.

  BMI Airways

For pre-arranged challenge events we can also offer travel only packages for groups of six upwards using quality MPV's,

minibuses and coaches including on-board entertainment, air conditioning and toilets on selective larger capacity vehicles.

Fleet vehicles include:

  • MPV's - Capacity 6, 7 or 8
  • Minibus - Capacity 16
  • Midi Coach - Capacity 24
  • Executive coach - Capacity 33, 39, 49, 53

All vehicles are rigourously maintained and supplied with experienced drivers and operate in strict compliance with PSV and Coach Operators driving regulations ensuring the highest standard of passenger safety.

  Virgin Rail

For the increasingly popular National 3 Peaks Challenge and especially for groups based in the South of England and the Midlands we favour a south - north routing with the option of a return flight at the end of the challenge.

  • Birmingham
  • Bristol
  • Cardiff
