ABOUT US

98 YEARS OF EXPERIENCE - WE CARE

All holidays are crewed by our own specially selected drivers and we pride ourselves on having the most helpful, courteous and knowledgeable drivers in the industry. Based on customer feedback, we know our crew play a key role in making your holiday extra special. Our crew express immense satisfaction from making you happy. 

We own and operate our own fleet of coaches, maintained in our workshop to the highest standards and boasting all the facilities you need to stay safe and comfortable whilst you are on-board.

Our great range of destinations and itineraries are carefully planned along with a programme of excursions to make sure that your holiday is the relaxing, fun-filled break you deserve.

All accommodation used has been stringently checked, from family run hotels to national chains and are tailored to the needs of each holiday. Chosen for their location, style and service, many are old friends that we have been using for years; others are new and we believe will become real customer favourites.

EST 1919

Skills Motor Coaches originated in Radford, Nottingham in 1919. It became a limited company in 1958. Founded by Arthur Skill, the current chairman’s (Nigel) and financial director’s (Simon) grandfather, began by using his only lorry to collect fish from the early morning market and for light haulage during the day. Soon, he began carrying local miners to Bestwood Colliery, and in 1921 he purchased a Crossley Charabanc - Skills’ first true bus. Read the full story of our heritage at www.skills.co.uk/heritage
