Text Box: Coach Holidays from Derby, Ilkeston, Heanor and Ripley.Felix Holidays are arranged by Swiftsure Travel — a family business based in Burton on Trent, with friendly service and good quality products delivered by a small team of professional people!
We select quality hotels which offer comfortable accommodation with good food, and we have included a variety of excursions. Our coaches are smart and comfortable, and our drivers pleasant, helpful and informed. 
Our coach will collect you from a convenient point along a route between Derby, Chaddesden, Oakwood, Stanley, West Hallam, Ilkeston, Heanor, Codnor and Ripley. There are also additional pick-up points at Cotmanhay and Kirk Hallam. This generally takes no more than 1 hour 20 minutes. We do not normally use feeder coaches on weekend tours, but may do so if we think it will improve the pick up and drop off arrangements. Some departures are shared with Swiftsure and Afton Holidays—in this case you may be picked up by a feeder coach and taken to join the main tour coach at a convenient local interchange point.
We hope that one or more of these holidays might interest you and look forward to taking your booking. If you would like to join one of our friendly and relaxing holidays please call our office:- FREEPHONE 0800 019 0047 or 0115 9325332  Ring today and ask us to post you a copy of our Holiday Tour Brochure — the call is free!
