Owen’s Travel, based in Oswestry, Shropshire, has introduced a new Panther Executive Coach to its fleet of luxury vehicles.
The 12.8m, 57-seat B8R joins the extensive fleet of high specification vehicles operating under the Travelmaster brand, a marque that has sustained Owen’s reputation in the vanguard of the industry.
Like all of the company’s holiday and tour coaches the new Panther has a superb finish, including full air conditioning, climate control, washroom, fridge, drinks facility, reclining seats, foot rests, all-age safety belts, radio, CD and DVD systems, and tinted windows.
Owen’s, which includes a series of travel agencies, is a name synonymous with the provision of local transport services in Shropshire, Mid and North Wales. In addition, it operates school contracts and runs a wide-ranging programme of excursions, day trips and short breaks across the country.
Significantly, as part of the Worldchoice Travel Partnership, the largest travel consortium in the UK, it is respected internationally by tour operators, airlines and hotels.
Company owner Mike Owen commented: “We have worked hard to build a business that plays a meaningful role in the local community, while also attracting and looking after foreign tourists arriving into the UK and who play a vital part in stimulating our national economy.
“A critical factor in achieving our objectives is having a fleet of modern, environment-friendly vehicles that are stylish, perform well and are liked by both passengers and drivers. The Plaxton Panther fits the bill perfectly.”
