Andrew Bliss, Director for Bliss Travel Limited, said: “We specialise in discreet, unbranded coach hire and rental in central London, and were looking for a small coach which is easier to navigate in the narrow backroads of London, and the Volvo B8R SC5 was a perfect fit for us.”
Volvo Retail Bus & Coach Sales Manager, Jo Standbridge, said: “The Volvo B8R Euro 6 chassis combined with the Sunsundegui SC5 bodywork, offers the best in fuel efficiency and versatile operation.”
Volvo describes the B8R SC5 as being the perfect tourer for both UK and continental travel. Available with 38/41 seats and being just over 10 metres in length, its superior manoeuvrability makes it highly suitable for both inner city use as well as in the open countryside and more challenging terrain.
Jo Standbridge continued: “Although classed as a midi, the Volvo B8R SC5 offers extensive luggage capacity and an optional rear saloon toilet as well as a range of executive level specification features expected by today’s coach passenger.
Volvo Buses is also reinforcing its safety position with the B8R and B11R models by incorporating a new Driver Support System (DSS) which includes lane keeping support, a forward collision warning and emergency braking system.
The vehicle also includes reclining seats, three point seat belts and leather headrests and along with the internal styling and Volvo chassis reliability, it makes an impressive and adaptable coach for drivers and passengers alike and is designed to keep operational costs to a minimum.
Andrew Bliss added: “Jo Standbridge, has been great throughout the purchasing process. She is extremely helpful and we look forward to working with her again in the future.”
Bliss Travel was formed in 1993 as a service to chauffeur drive business in central London. It has since increased the fleet to include coach hire and rental with garage premises in central London, bringing maintenance in-house and increasing productivity, keeping repair time to a minimum.
