Halsbury Travel is available, able and willing to assist at any time of day and night with all the necessary resources:
we have contacts to arrange replacement coaches in Europe 24 hours a day. We will not leave our coach operators or breakdown services to deal with a mechanical problem on their own. We will liaise with your driver and the operator to monitor progress and we will be making contingency arrangements to send you a new coach in case they cannot fix your vehicle in a sensible time scale!
- we can re-arrange channel crossings at a moment's notice if one network is closed, on strike or blockaded because we have accounts with all major ferry operators.
- we can find accommodation at short notice for staff and pupils delayed because of illness, accident or getting lost and we can usually arrange for them to return to the UK at no extra charge on one of the many coaches we have in the resort.
- we have multi-lingual staff who can help 24 hours a day in the event of emergency Hospital admissions or situations where passports have been left in the hotel safes or lost / stolen.
