We are looking to start excursions during the month of August. This will start with our usual Newcastle or Metro Centre on the first Saturday of the month. We then have a shorter easy going excursion to Keswick - a chance to get out of the house for a few hours, visit Keswick and then return. See 'Excursions' for our full list.

All excursions must be pre-booked and paid for in advance, all money will be refunded if excursions are cancelled by Sim's Travel or due to COVID-19 restrictions.

Passengers will be allocated to window seats, except where travelling together with family or bubble passenger.

A face covering must be worn, except when not possible.

Please use hand sanitiser which is fitted in all coaches.

Only use the seat which has been allocated to you.

Please do not travel if you are feeling unwell with Covid-19 symptons.

We’re Good to Go!

As we prepare our business & vehicles to return to work, we have been awarded the 'We're Good to Go' Industry Standard mark.

This is a scheme that has been designed by Visit England and other national tourist organisations to provide a ring of confidence that we have clear processes in place and are following industry & government COVID-19 guidance on cleanliness and social distancing.

It is with regret that all of our day excursions are going to be cancelled until the end of July. We will review things after this date as we go along.

Please bear with us as we are trying to contact each individual to sort refunds etc.

We thank you for your patience on this matter.

Day excursions past this date will be reviewed in the coming weeks.

For any other questions please contact us through Facebook or give us a call.
