Welcome to ICT Coaches Ltd. – Norfolk’s newest coach company!
ICT Coaches Ltd. are Norfolk’s newest coach company with over forty years combined knowledge and experience in the industry.
All aboard as Norfolk’s newest Coach Company takes to the road! Following the success and growth of local day trip and excursion company IC Travel, sister company ICT Coaches Ltd has been formed with 3 brand new vehicles making up the fleet.
IC Travel Managing Director, Ian Colman MBE along with Alison Fenton and Simon Spencer are co-directors of the new company and are delighted with the rapid progress seen after it commenced operating in early 2019. As company owners and drivers we take great pride and care in providing the best possible service to you our customers and our reputation means that where additional drivers are needed we are able to attract and select those we consider best to deliver our company ethos.
With increasing business and the 2019 environmental regulations coming in to force in London ICT Coaches decided that the best option was to acquire a new ‘Euro 6’ executive Coaches, the fleet comprising of 16, 33 and 53 executive Mercedes coaches.
So what is Euro 6?
Euro 6 is the type of engine fitted specifically designed to reduce NOX emissions by a staggering 66% compared to it’s predecessor – Euro 5. On a typical trip to London the CO2 emissions are about 75% less than a car over the same journey. London is the first city to levy charges on non-Euro 6 vehicles and this will be adopted over time across many other towns and cities. In 2019, non-compliant coaches are subject to a £100 levy to travel in central London!
Who are we?
Alison and Simon formerly worked for Richards Coaches which ceased trading in November 2018 and previously worked closely with Ian and the team at IC Travel for all their excursions. Lisa Colman provides much of the operational support in the office.
Too many coach companies focus on the vehicle and not the customer. At ICT Coaches we approach our business by putting the customer first, with clean, modern and comfortable coaches being a given. We strive to give all customers the best experience possible, with the travel recognised as being just as important to the client’s day as the event or location they are going to. Our new coaches provide the best comfort and have added extras such as USB charging ports at each seat, with toilet facilities and fridge on the 2 larger vehicles and hot drink facilities on the largest coach.
The vehicles are used to provide the transport for IC Travel but are also available for private hire to groups, schools, businesses and clubs for both UK and European excursions. The two companies are able to provide a wide range of travel options from a 7-seater Private Hire vehicle for Airport transfers expanding to over 100 passengers across the fleet. The company is a member of the Confederation of Passenger Transport (CPT) emphasising the professional approach to business.
Understanding the needs of groups is key to our success and the team works closely with customers to ensure the entire process from booking to travelling is as easy and flexible as possible. When you contact us one of the team will be pleased to help you at every stage of the process. We try and be as flexible as possible with office hours and often we will be talking to customers during the evening or at weekends to help with their planning.
Our feedback from customers is second to none and a selection of comments can be seen on our ‘Testimonials’ page on this website. We may not always be the cheapest option but we can guarantee the best possible service with the newest clean modern coaches and top class drivers.
