If you enjoy exploring new places, and meeting new friends in a relaxed and happy atmosphere, I know you’ll love one of our holidays!
It’s over a quarter of a century since I started the company, and over that time more than one million mature holidaymakers have travelled the globe with us - enjoying the time of their lives, at a time in their lives when it’s so richly deserved.
Whether it’s a few days beside the sea, or sailing the high seas, you can be sure that Grand UK has taken good care of everything. I’m proud to say that no other organisation can look after your interests in quite the same way, and this is why such a huge percentage of our customers return with us year after year after year.
If you’re one of our many old friends, or joining us for the very first time, we really look forward to meeting you in the coming months. And don’t forget to drop me a line with your holiday tales, it’s always great to hear from you.
Founder and Managing Director
Affordable holidays for everyone
Whatever your budget, Grand UK has a holiday just for you! Our five day coach holidays start from an unbelievable £99, and our eight day Summer Superdeals from just £259! Trusting one of the largest and most
respected leisure companies means that you always get more for your money.
A company you can trust
We remain a privately owned, specialist company that puts all its energy into just one thing - ensuring you get the best from your well-earned holiday. And because we are members of ABTA and licensed by the CAA, you can be sure that your holiday money is totally safe and secure - and that’s a promise!
Tried, tested and respected!
We work tirelessly to perfect the art of making holidays extra special. Our team is the best in the business, and no-one knows more about finding the best hotels, planning the best itineraries, and securing the best service.
Free local departures
Most of our holidays include a free courtesy travel service at the beginning and end of your holiday - from hundreds of locations throughout southern and central England. But if it’s more convenient for you to join at our Interchange area or directly at your holiday destination, you’ll qualify for a discount of £25 per person. Page 192 has all the details.
No single supplements
If you’re on your own, you’ll be in great company on a Grand UK holiday. We are the leaders in holidays for mature single people, and we have never charged additional supplements for single rooms on British
mainland holidays. We also feature special Friendship Club holidays which are ideal for making new friends.
No luggage worries
Enjoy your coach holiday without having to worry about heavy suitcases. Simply arrive at your chosen local departure point, and the next you’ll see of your luggage is in your hotel bedroom! It’s all part of the service with Grand UK!
Friendly tour managers
Our tour manager escorts will help you make the very most of your holiday, and our team of coach drivers have years of experience behind the wheel. You simply couldn’t be in better hands!
Our unique Price-Back insurance offer on mainland coach holidays means that essential protection doesn’t have to cost you a single penny! It means that when you take out our specially tailored UK insurance cover we’ll give you your money back in Holiday Vouchers. It’s all part of Grand UK’s unique commitment to Customer Care.

We are constantly reviewing all aspects of the service we offer in line with the suggestions and comments made by our customers. More than 40,000 Holiday Questionnaires are returned to us each year, and the holidays you see in this brochure reflect the continual feedback from our customers. Your views really do make a difference!
