New Tourismos join Shearings fleet

Shearings Holidays is taking delivery of 29 new Mercedes Tourismos as part of Shearings Leisure Group’s 2017 order for 43 new vehicles, including three-axle Tourismo M 16 RHD and Tourismo 14s for National Holidays. An initial 22 coaches are already in service with the balance due shortly.

The latest coach order includes air-conditioning, arm- and foot-rests and dual 19in monitors paired with Bosch Professional Line audio/visual systems. Power to all of the new Tourismos is delivered by a Mercedes-Benz OM 470 engine. 

“We are delighted to welcome the new vehicles to the fleet,” says Richard Calvert, CEO, Shearings Leisure Group. “This represents a major investment for us and is a testament to our commitment as a business to provide customers with the ultimate comfort and safety while on tour. 

“The Euro 6 Tourismo coaches are very popular with our customers and the latest interiors will add even more luxury to their overall experience.”

The announcement follows growth in customer volumes, according to Shearings, which has expanded its UK and European holiday programme with a number of new destinations.
