Quality UK & European Coach Holidays

Welcome to our Holiday selection. Over the years we have strived to give the highest quality of service and we have been fortunate to meet some wonderful people along the way. We have enjoyed giving people great times on our holidays, laughing with them and seeing them smile. We are proud that we still offer the same quality service that we set out to do back in 1991.

We hope that you enjoy browsing through our range of tours and trust that we can tempt you to join us on board.

All of our hotels have been personally chosen for their locations, quality and value for money. All tours include excursions and along with our increasingly popular Door to Door Home Service on all tours of 5 days or over we continue to maintain the highest standards on all our holidays. Some of our destinations are so popular with our customers that we return to them year after year.

When you book a Chandlers Holiday you will have peace of mind that 24 hours a day you be in safe hands. Our experienced Tour Drivers, Hostesses, Tour Managers and Guides are supported by our Operations Team and we all work together to ensure that you have a trouble free and enjoyable holiday to remember.

The Chandlers Holiday programme has gone from strength to strength with an extensive range of holidays to suit everyone. Many of our customers have become friends over the years and there’s no friendlier way to see the UK and Europe than on a Chandlers Coach Holiday.


We are proud to have achieved the strict membership criteria required for membership of CITO, The Consortium of Independent Tour Operators, a select, nationwide organisation committed to the continual improvement of quality coach holidays.


A proportion of our holidays have met the criteria for the CITO Quality Award. These tours are of a high standard and include, at no extra cost, features not always found on coach holidays such as, entrance to featured places of interest, door to door service, all excursions, a high specification, air conditioned coach and on over 2 night stays a minimum of 3 star destination hotels with a choice on the dinner menu, a full cooked breakfast in the UK and a buffet breakfast in Europe, porterage and much more. (There is not generally a choice of menu on river cruises).

We’ll look after you…

Whether you’re travelling alone, your nearest and dearest or with friends, we’ll take care of all your holiday needs, every step of the way.

You’re in good hands…

With over 25 years’ experience in operating coach holidays to Europe, you can sit back and relax, secure in the knowledge that your comfort and safety is our number one priority.

Chandlers welcomes all passengers, and your holiday is very important to us. We are, however, aware that some of our visits may not be suitable for everyone. Some tours may involve a great deal of travelling or venues which are not best suited to those with reduced mobility. Should you have any concerns, our reservations staff will be happy to offer advice and answer questions with the regard to the suitability of a particular holiday.

Quality coach travel…

Our coach holiday tours include luxury coach travel with individually reserved seats. All our touring coaches are modern, air conditioned and designed for the purpose of touring. Our drivers and supporting crew members are fully trained and qualified to ensure you have a safe, relaxed and enjoyable holiday.

Platinum Service

Most of the departures in this brochure will be on board a vehicle with extra leg room.

In addition all tours marked with Platinum Service will have lots of little extras included. A Host/Hostess service on board will be provided to serve refreshments and ensure your holiday is as comfortable and relaxing as possible.

Door to Door Holidays…

Our Door to Door Home Pickup service is exactly what it says, your holiday starts from your own door step and is included in the price on all our holidays of 5 days duration or more within our designated pick up area.

A taxi or mini-bus arranged by Chandlers Holidays will collect you from your own front door and take you with your luggage to your tour coach. At the end of your holiday we take you home again so no more worries about being met or what to do if delayed, we take care of all that for you.

This service is also available on tours of four days or less for a small fee.

Total Financial Security…

For your peace of mind and security all monies are held in a designated client trust account under EC Directive 90314 until after your holiday. This means that all pre-paid monies to this company are held completely separate from the day to day business account.

In the unlikely event of financial failure by this company your money would be immediately reimbursed in full from this trust account.
