The General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”) is the new legal framework that will come into effect on the 25th of May 2018. 

It  is a new EU law about the protection, collection and management of personal data, (i.e. data about individuals) and it applies to all businesses who hold or otherwise process personal data.  

The GDPR requires that we only send information to those who have agreed to receive it.

In the past we automatically added the names of ticket holders to our mailing list, but we now need your specific authorisation to do this.

When you next call our office, or travel on one of our trips, ‘you’ may be asked if you wish to continue to receive information about our trips by post.

If you don’t wish to receive this information tell us ‘no’ and we will remove your name and address from our records.

Alternatively, you can use the e-mail link here to send us your name and postal address to confirm inclusion on our mail list. 

Please note we only add names to our list when clients make a booking.

You can call us and ask to send a brochure by post, but your address wont be added to the list unless you book a trip.

Text Box: The Time Has Come ...
Yes, the rumours are true, Richard and Kathy have decided to retire. 
It seems a very long time ago that we started Swiftsure Travel with Brian Kershaw in 1992, but we have decided that 27 years is long enough and it is time for us to escape from the stresses and worries of running a small business.
We have offered the business to some respected and trusted friends in the coach trade, but, for a number of reasons, they don’t wish to take on our programme of day trips and tours. We have therefore decided to close our business in an orderly way; our final trips will be at the end of January 2019.
Until then, we will continue, almost as normal, and look forward to your support in our final few months.
We are truly thankful for the support of our many loyal customers over many years. 
Arranging our day trips and holidays has always been a pleasure and I am sorry that we have to bring it to an end, but we know that now is the right time for us to step back. 
Our best wishes to you all!
