After the last 18 months, and Summer 2020 by and large being one to forget, make Summer 2021 that much more special, with a Personal Class Travel Summer 2021 Day Trip.
Foreign holidays and travel are still a risk, both in terms of the pandemic, and the seeming ever changing Green, Amber & Red traffic light system for quarantines. After 2 years of holidays being cancelled, many people are choosing simply not to bother booking holidays abroad this summer, instead choosing to spend there time off in UK. Either with a Staycation somewhere in the UK, or staying at home, and opting for Day Trips, instead of a Holiday.
To help those choosing to stay at home and go on Day trips, we have put together a number Day Trips we can take you, so you can leave the car at home, and still feel like you are on Holiday.
Don’t see a day trip that appeals to you? Get in touch with us, let us know what you would like to do, or where you would like to go, and we will put something together just for you. As with everything we do at Personal Class Travel, every single Day trip we have put together, can be customised, and adapted to your requirements
