CPT rewards coach friendly attractions

The Confederation of Passenger Transport UK (CPT) has recently launched the Coach Friendly Attraction status that is to be offered to tourist attractions that are making an extra effort in welcoming groups travelling by coach.


Alf Scrimgour, CPT’s Coach Tourism Executive said, “CPT is delighted to add visitor attractions to its extremely popular and well respected Coach Friendly status. This new status provides the ideal platform for the coach industry to showcase visitor attractions across the UK that do their utmost to welcome and provide a comfortable and enjoyable trip for coach groups and parties. It has also been designed to help raise levels of awareness and standards across the coach tourism industry for the benefit of coach operators, passengers and the attractions themselves." 


Actors from the coach tourism sector are encouraged to propose nominations and attractions are also free to nominate themselves. CPT officers are judging the candidates against strict criteria. Exceptional coach, driver and passenger facilities, dedicated and adequate coach parking and clear directional instructions and signs for visiting coaches and their parties are just some of the “must-haves” of the Coach Friendly Visitor Attractions.


The status has a validity of three years after which a revising process is undergone.
