Twenty-nine Mercedes-Benz Tourismo Euro 6 coaches will join the operator’s existing fleet

Shearings Holidays announced it has added 29 brand new Mercedes-Benz Tourismo Euro 6 coaches to its existing fleet.

Twenty-two out of the 29 new coaches are already in service, with the rest expected to be phased into the fleet over the coming weeks.

The new Tourismos are part of Shearings Leisure Group’s 2017 order for 43 new vehicles, 29 three axle Tourismo M 16 RHD for the core Shearings fleet and 14 Tourismo 14 RHD for National Holidays.

The announcement comes on the back of further growth in customer volumes, which earlier saw the company expand its UK & European holiday programme and add a range of new destinations.

Richard Calvert, CEO of Shearings Leisure Group, commented: “We are delighted to welcome the new vehicles to the fleet. This represents a major investment for us and is a testament to our commitment as a business to provide customers with the ultimate comfort and safety while on tour.

“The Euro 6 Tourismo coaches are very popular with our customers and the latest interiors will add even more luxury to their overall experience.”

The vehicles feature an array of luxury features, such as full air-conditioning, arm and foot rests and dual 19” monitors paired with Bosch Professional Line audio/visual systems. Power to all the new Tourismos is delivered by a Mercedes-Benz OM 470 engine.
