Skills Holidays – 90 years on the road

Skills Holidays has launched its 2009 UK and continental holiday programme and there’s much to mark the company’s 90th year in the business of pleasure.

Founded in 1919 by Arthur Skill, the current managing director’s grandfather, the family firm has pulled out all the stops to offer the best ever choice of stylish holidays for travellers from the East Midlands, South Yorkshire and further afield.

According to managing director, Nigel Skill, there are 40 new holidays on offer with over one hundred other choices developed around popular and long established near and distant favourites. “Over half the programmes will be operated using our top class Premier coach fleet including our latest arrival, a £235,000 fifty three seater coach.
“In 2009, we’ll be offering everything from 13 days in South Africa to weekend breaks on the Malvern Hills. New additions include luxury ladies’ and gents’ three day weekend breaks at a Lincolnshire spa resort; Mothers’ Day at the ‘Pudding Club’ in Gloucestershire and a spooky tour to York to explore the city’s ghostly haunts.

“Alongside a full complement of continental tours to places including the Med, France, Germany, Belgium and the Czech Republic, I am delighted that we are able to offer one of the best ever ranges in our 90 years of service,” {smartads}says Nigel.
