Volvo is ‘winning formula’
for Travellers Choice

Carnforth-based operator Travellers Choice, has placed a repeat order for seven Volvo B11R vehicles with the latest generation Jonckheere bodywork, which will be the next additions to its predominantly Volvo fleet.

Set for delivery in spring 2019, the coaches are destined for use on incoming tourist work throughout the UK and Ireland. The Carnforth-based operator was the first in the UK to take delivery of a B11R with the new JHV2 bodywork when it was first launched in 2016.

John Shaw, MD of Travellers Choice, says: “We’ve been using the Volvo/Jonckheere combination for more than 35 years now – since they first came to the UK – and we’ve always found it to be a ‘winning formula’ for us.

“We were delighted to be the first UK operator to take the B11R JHV2 when it was launched two years ago and have ordered nine more Volvo/Jonckheeres since then. 

“In addition to them being great looking coaches, we have found the operational performance, fuel economy and passenger comfort levels to be exceptionally good. We had no hesitation in ordering another seven to meet our forthcoming requirements for 2019 and into 2020.”

The latest order is comprised of one JHV2 126 53 seater, four JSV2 134s with 57 seats and two JSV 140s with seating for 65 passengers.
