Holiday & Excursions Covid-19 FAQs

1. Will I need to wear a face covering on board the coach?

The government recently announced that England will return to Plan A on Thursday 27th
January 2022 thanks to the success of the booster programme. This removes the legal
requirement for face coverings in any location (including on-board) and greatly reduces the restrictions in buildings. It will therefore be a personal choice for customers to wear a face covering onboard our coaches.

2. What is classed as a face covering?

A face covering should cover the mouth and nose while allowing the wearer to breathe comfortably and can be as simple as a scarf or bandana that ties behind the head to give a snug fit. It should remain in place of its own accord.

3. What about face coverings in Wales and Scotland?

The rules in Wales and Scotland have not changed; it is still a legal requirement for face
coverings to be worn on public transport. Drivers will manually advise customers travelling
to or from locations in Scotland and Wales that they are required to wear face coverings as per the Government guidance.
