Another new Scania Irizar Coach for Laguna Travel

Laguna Travel, Bournemouth, has added another new Scania Irizar coach to its fleet. Handed over recently in readiness for the summer season, this latest vehicle is an executive specification Century Club. Based on a Scania K360 EB4x2 chassis, the 12-metre overall length vehicle features a 360 horsepower Scania engine and the fully automated Scania Opticruise gear selection system.

According to Laguna Travel Partner Richard Gwynne,  a prime reason for continuing to choose Scania is the aftersales care provided by Scania (Great Britain) Limited's Poole branch,  which manages the repair and maintenance package included in the vehicle's purchase price.  The coach will be used primarily for Laguna Hotel guest collection and local day excursions.

Originally starting in business as the operator of Bournemouth's Laguna Hotel, Laguna Travel diversified into coaching in the early 1990s in order to provide its customers with a door-to-door holiday experience.  Over time, the company further developed the transport arm of its business and today operates a fleet of nine coaches, eight of which are Scania.  In addition to its own programme of holiday packages, the company is also involved in private hire and schools' contracts.
