Exceptional reliability, Aftermarket service and resale value were the key reasons behind Ardcavan Coach Tours ordering the new Volvo B11R Euro 6.

Philip O’Leary, Company Director at Ardcavan Coach Tours, explained: “We needed a new 53 seater for our fleet, to work on our increasingly busy incoming tour programme.

“This is our fifth new Volvo and the first B11R Euro 6 we’ve added to our fleet.  Our previous experience of Volvo, based on reliability, quality and operational performance, meant we had no hesitation in selecting them once again.

“Passenger wellbeing and safety were also important in our decision making process and our new vehicle provides ample leg room and a range of features offering today’s seasoned traveller the highest quality and comfort they now expect.

“Working with our Volvo Retail Bus & Coach Sales Manager, Dave Porter, meant the whole process was as smooth as ever from order through to delivery. In addition, we also know that we will get the aftersales service we require from our local Volvo dealership, Irish Commercials in Dublin.”

Dave Porter added: “The Volvo B11R Euro 6 chassis is very well known with operators for its quality and overall performance. We are delighted that Ardcavan Coach Tours chose to add this new Volvo to their fleet.”

Ardcavan Coach Tours is a family run business, in operation for more than 45 years, and is one of Ireland’s top coach companies.
