Assisi Travel brings another Volvo B8R to the streets of Salisbury

Assisi Travel’s distinctive and patriotic livery can be seen on the roads of the south of England once again in the shape of a Volvo B8R Plaxton Leopard, the company’s second new B8R purchase from Volvo Coach Sales in just 18 months.

Assisi Travel Director Kevin Tedd said: “Being a third-generation operator, and one of the largest and last independents in the Salisbury area, we were looking for value for money with low running costs, excellent residuals and the back up that our customers and us expect.

“The Volvo B8R on Plaxton body means that parts are readily available, either through our local agents MC Truck and Bus, Volvo coach parts in Loughborough or the Plaxton parts network.

“The B8R I-Shift gearbox is quiet, smooth, comfortable and economical. The customers like these vehicles which is why we went for a second new 57-seater taking our large capacity coach fleet to six.” 

Volvo Retail Bus & Coach Sales Manager, Sam Prothero added: “Assisi Travel is one of the cornerstones of the coach industry in the South West and it’s a pleasure to do business with them. I’m confident that their new vehicle will fit into their operation perfectly.”

Assisi Travel is a family run business which operates airport and seaport transfers, corporate hire, school contracts, private hire, UK-wide tours and Stonehenge group tours.
