Kee Travel - Offering one of Wakefield's largest varieties of Day Excursions

 

Welcome

Kee Travel is a family run coach company.

To all our valued customers  -  July 2020  -  restarting excursions:

With the continued easing of the lock down restrictions, we have now restarted our Day Excursions programme.  The planning work with venues, tourist destinations, town councils and other visitor organisations, including the "We're Good to Go" scheme, will continue so that we can give you a safe and enjoyable day out to places that will offer you a warm welcome

Some of the ways that we have always looked after you are now becoming standard practice for others in the coach industry, for example taking a pride in our cleaning regime and allocating your seats at the time of booking.  Additional measures that we are taking include: increased frequency cleaning of touch-points; introducing aerosol based disinfection using a certified high performance anti-viral solution (for effective use against Coronavirus); provision of hand sanitiser on board; screens to protect our coach drivers; limiting the capacity of our coaches and changing the way we seat you to minimise contact with when boarding, alighting and during the journey; plus we are communicating relevant health messages and safety advice.  We are confident that you can trust our industry and use coaches to enjoy travelling again.
You can help us by following the same travel advice as you do for wider public transport: regularly cleaning your hands with soap or hand sanitiser; wearing face coverings; observing social distance rules whilst waiting to be picked up; look after your litter; and most importantly if you are showing any of the symptoms of Coronavirus you must stay at home and do not travel.

One big change that you will notice is that we have altered the way that we will do our pick ups for each excursion.  We have used a second coach to collect passengers and bring them to the main coach for many years, which allowed us to offer all of our pick up points on every trip. This feeder coach helped to keep the pick up times down to a minimum and saved everyone time at the start and end of the day.  As a result of the pandemic we have limited the seating capacity of all of our vehicles, and to reduce the contact with our staff and other passengers we have taken the difficult decision not to operate the smaller feeder coach at this time.  You will now join the main coach and take your seat directly from your chosen departure point, with no need to change between coaches. 
To minimise the time taken collecting passengers each day we have created two pick up routes, each with a reduced number of departure points.  You will see that you now have a choice between:
Route A (serving Wakefield, Rothwell, Oulton, Castleford, Airedale and Pontefract) and
Route B (serving Wakefield, Normanton, Castleford, Allerton Bywater, Kippax and Garforth).
Both routes serve Castleford Bus Station and Wakefield city centre and we advertise the pick up route for each of our excursions on the website and in the latest brochure.  On the Day Excursions page of our website you can choose to search all of our trips by departure point, or by route - the page will then only display those excursions where we will pick up from your selected usual local departure point.  Our pick up points are for your convenience, and should you wish to board at the last departure point on any excursion please enquire and we will be happy to advise.

Keep safe and well, all of us at Kee Travel look forward to seeing you on board or online at our new Facebook page.



Welcome to our website. We hope that you enjoy browsing the wide variety of trips that we have on offer. We started operating our own Day Excursion Programme called "Destinations" in 1998, offering a variety of days out 12 months of the year.  We celebrated our 22nd Anniversary in February and once again we raised funds for the Prince of Wales Hospice. This year we were pleased to generate over £850 on our anniversary and we express our thanks to everyone that helped us reach this target.  Unfortunately the months that followed haven't been so good, and the same will be true for the Hospice so please don't forget about your local charities this summer.

Our excursions vary considerably throughout the year and include Scenic Drives, Historic Properties, Popular Market Days and Christmas Markets, Meal Venues, Towns and Cities, Antique Fairs, Crafts, Gardening and Flower Shows, Railways, Coastal Venues, Special Event Days, River, Lake and Canal Boat Cruises, Airshows, Food and Drink Festivals, Wildlife Parks and Zoos.  During the school holidays we have a choice of days out to suit everyone's taste, including the kids.

Our aim is to always provide a warm welcome and a friendly service to all our passengers, with allocated seats, discounted fares for adults over 60 and children under 15, and an on-board no smoking policy for passenger comfort. Where possible, you will also have the services of an on-board hostess.
We pride ourselves on being able to offer you a wide choice of day excursions on clean, comfortable coaches fitted with air conditioning and an on-board WC.

With a choice of free local pick up points around the Pontefract, Castleford, Wakefield and south Leeds area of West Yorkshire you should find it easy to join us for an enjoyable day out. A full list of the places where you can board the coach is on the Pick Up Points section of our website and on our printed excursions brochure called "Destinations".  Our latest brochure has been printed with a yellow cover, and it shows with details of all our excursions up to December 2020.  The Coronavirus pandemic has led to many changes being made to our planned excursion programme so the brochure has taken some time to get ready, but we are confident that we have a good selection of trips available for you to choose from. Our website is always maintained with the latest up to date information so you can also see current details of all of our trips here

All of the Kee Travel team look forward to welcoming you on board.
