David Ogden Holidays
A David Ogden Coach Holiday offers a personal service from a family run company, who have been providing memorable holidays to their wonderful customers for over 35 years.
David Ogden's team love holidays and love to travel and more than anything they love to show you the very best of the UK, Ireland and the European Continent. In 1975 Joan and David Ogden bought their first mini bus and now over 35 years later they have an enviable fleet of executive coaches carefully driven by their friendly drivers. You will still see David and Joan travelling on board their holidays (and in David's case occasionally driving), whilst back in the office their daughter Carol is busy arranging the holidays with their team of long standing staff.
At David Ogden Holidays they aim to offer the very best in service, quality and affordability. Unlike other operators, they don't choose cheap hotels – as they think you deserve better, so their hotels are chosen taking many factors into consideration such as, location in relation to the tour itinerary, quality of service, range of facilities, comfort, entertainment and food quality to name some. And although avoiding cheap hotels, a high emphasis is still placed on providing affordable holidays.
The team are extremely proud of the selection of holidays they offer and are certain that you will find something that takes your fancy within their holiday programme, whether you are looking for a weekend city break or a pamper weekend, a holiday or short break to the seaside or visiting stately homes, castles and palaces, a jaunt to the emerald isle for some Irish craic, or hopping across the Channel and relaxing on one of their spectacular continental holidays. There is also a great range of family breaks including Legoland, The Harry Potter Studio's and much more. David Ogden's try to offer the very best in service, quality and affordability.
