Skinners have been operating a programme of coach holidays and short breaks since the early 1980s, and have included a door-to-door service since 1999: we pick you up from your front door to start your holiday and take you safely home at the end.

Our door-to-door service is available free of charge within the area specified in our holiday brochure if you live outside this area, just call us for a price.

At Skinners all excursions described in the holiday you choose are included in the price you pay… we don’t add any extras later and expect you to pay more.

5 Reasons to holiday with Skinners…

  1. We pick you up at your front door, so you don’t have to worry about your luggage
  2. The coach won’t go without you
  3. You can sit back & admire the scenery/chat with friends/have a snooze
  4. You’ll meet interesting people & probably make new friends
  5. The coach will make comfort stops, so you can stretch your legs & not suffer from that well known Easter complaint…“Hot Cross Bum!”
