March News Letter
Spring is here and the clocks go forward this weekend, so don’t forget to make the change. I expect you’re wondering what’s happening with chauffeurhire, well we’re here and ready to go. I think this lockdown has been the hardest for all of us. We have all had our first jabs at chauffeurhire and we expect the majority of our clientele have had theirs too, so this will undoubtedly make travelling in a group safer.
We’ve been planning for the summer with lots of day trips and new holidays have been organised. A new summer edition holiday brochure has been produced (which is attached for you lucky lot on our e-mail list, so you’re the first to receive it) for those of you for whom we hold an address, we’ll be mailing out a copy as well, or as many as we can (afford). If you don’t get one in the post and would like one, please give us a call on 01454 319047. You’ll be able to down load a copy from our web site www.chauffeurhireplus.co.uk . We’re opening the shop on the 12th April and are planning some road shows with a coach and our drivers will be handing out leaflets and brochures around the area, so look out for one of our coaches parked up as they will have up-to-date day trip lists and brochures on board. Paul and myself will be in the office and we are hoping that with the cold miserable weather it’s made you all long to get out and enjoy some sunny days (always guaranteed with our trips) so spread the word we up and running from 17th May .
With the uncertainty of holidays abroad we have concentrated on staying in the UK and these start from June. All our holidays will have our free door to door service (within our local area) interesting day excursions, quality hotels and of course smart helpful drivers who are there to make your day as enjoyable as possible (you never know you, might even see me driving I could do with a day out too).
Day trips will start from the 17th May and for the first month we will mainly be visiting interesting outdoor places, seaside’s and towns giving you plenty of room to socially distance, as we reach mid June we will start to introduce some more interesting places, NT properties, boat & train trips and gardens that you have all enjoyed in the past. Hopefully the Theatres will start to open and Glenda will be able to start the Theatre trips and special trips like Tea at the Ritz etc. after speaking to her this morning I know she has had a lot of enquires for up and coming shows.
Bookings will be taken from the 12th April for Day trips and holidays, if you have a question ring me on 01454 319047 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will do my best to answer your enquiry. If you’re already booked on a holiday that’s shown in the brochure, don’t worry, we’re still holding that place for you and will be in contact with you when we get back in the shop.
The one thing I have really missed is our open days, meeting and having a chat with you all over a cup of tea and cake. Lyn, Glenda, Paul and the drivers have said the same, it’s been a long time since we have had a social day and we all hope it won’t be too long before we can do it again.
The 12th of April can’t come quick enough for us, so get planning everybody, let’s get travelling
And we’re off. Great news this week, it’s really given everyone at Chauffeurhire a boost. IF ALL GOES TO PLAN, we can start work again.
From the 12th of April We will be opening the shop for bookings
From the 17th May Day trips can start and we have lots of trips planned. Our first trip of 2021 will be one of our famous mystery day trips, so call into the shop and book a seat. We really can’t wait to start seeing you all again.
PICK UP POINTS
We’ve revamped our pickup points and split these into 3 separate routes. The routes run on specific days, when booking your day trip, check the route number and the day that it’s scheduled to take place. It may be a bit confusing to start with, but if you’re not sure, give us a call and we’ll talk you through the new routes and how it works.
|Route Number||Pickup Points||Days|
|Route 1||Downend, Emersons Green, Coalpit heath, Yate, and Chipping Sodbury||Tuesday, Thursday, and Sunday|
|Route 2||Chipping Sodbury, Yate, Winterbourne, Bradley Stoke, Almondsbury, Alveston and Thornbury||Wednesday and Friday|
|Route 3||Chipping Sodbury, Yate, Winterbourne, Bradley Stoke, Patchway, Filton and Henbury||Saturdays|
There will be some exceptions to the new routes, for example special dates or visits, but we will try to accommodate everyone so nobody feels that they will miss out. The new routes will enable us to plan more day trips and allow us the flexibility to run 6 day trips a week through the summer and autumn period. To start off, and to take advantage of the glorious summer weather, we’re going to visit outside venues first. I’m sure like us, you all want to get out and do something different and see something outside our locality.
At the moment our aim is to operate in the same way as we did last year in September and October observing the tier three conditions, so the wearing of masks/visors will be mandatory (unless you have a medical certificate of exemption) along with disposable gloves and hand sanitiser. We will only lift these measures as and when the government guidelines permit us to do so. We will continue to make the safety of our passengers a priority and want to reiterate that all our coaches have been fitted with Hispacold Eco3 & Pepa-F Air Purifier Filtration Equipment, 99.9% effective that purifies the air before circulating it, every coach will also be fogged daily .
