Hi,
 
I would just like to extend my thanks to your company for many years of quality service and would especially like to mention your driver, Sammy.
 
He has driven the coach on a few of our trips (for example to Malham and Hartlepool Power Station) and each and every time he is polite, welcoming and helpful.  At Hartlepool he went out of his way to make sure the students could get around easily from the power station, to the field centre, to Seaton Carew and was incredibly accommodating.
 
He is safe and courteous as a driver, he engages with our students, enjoys a laugh and joke with them and nothing is too much trouble for him - the students want him to be the driver for every trip they go on!
 
Thanks once again for the great service and please pass on to Sammy the best wishes and thanks from the geography students at Swallow Hill Community College.

 Good afternoon Gill
I just wanted to pass on a message from our staff about their visit to Filey yesterday. They said that their lady driver ( sorry, they didn't get her name) was very helpful, dropping them off exactly where they needed and was very good with the children. They just wanted me to pass this on to you.

Kind regards

Hi Gill,
Just a quick thanks to you and your driver(s) for your wonderful efforts. The coach was wonderful and smooth, the driver(s) were courteous, efficient and helpful. Both on the journey there and back. They were prompt to the timetables too, just brilliant! In fact they actually went out of their way to accommodate everyone's needs. We will be using your coaches in future. Thank you again.

Good afternoon Gill.
Don't know if anyone ever say thanks you, but I just wanted to drop you a note on behalf of our party of happy tourists to say a big thank you.
We had a great weekend, the coach was excellent as was you driver, who was more than accommodating and friendly towards us as a party.
Anyway, thank you again.
Best wishes.
Darren.


I would just like to take the time to thank your fabulous drivers who were excellent on our trip to London on 29 October 2016.
They were very accommodating and easy to get on with which is very important when you have a group of children with you on the trip. They stopped twice when requested with no problems. We arrived at exactly the time we wanted too and we came straight out of the venue to find the coach waiting for us ready to set off home.

Hi,
Could you please pass on this email of thanks to J & B Travel with regards to their driver Chris and leave a positive review on their site?
He was absolutely fantastic on the Psychology trip to London and really helped it all to run smoothly. He was road safe, conscientious that the kids were always okay and really friendly towards us and them. He was a pleasure to be on the trip with, and we would highly recommend himself and the company again.
Thanks!

Please would pass on my thanks to Jason the driver of the Meadowfield School trip to Cornwall.
I happened to be on holiday in Cornwall and met up with the party at the Minack Theatre.
The school had nothing but praise for Jason. I also witnessed him being extremely helpful to the group in getting them safely walking to and from the theatre, latterly in the pitch black!
Thank you,

Dear Gill,
I'm writing on behalf of the entire Year 6 team at Meadowfield and the 46 children we took with us. Jason, our coach driver was absolutely wonderful and we really want to say thank you to him. He was kind, knowledgeable, courteaous and thoughtful. He knew exactly where he was going at all times and responded to the needs of the children with patience and care. Jason is a credit to your company. Next year when we book a coach we will definitely be using your company and hopefully getting Jason!!
Thank you so much for everything,
Catherine Dalziel, Richard Evans, Naomi Sergeant, Helen Bray and Sharon Duncan

We went on a holiday booked through National Holidays and were served by yourselves. We went from Leeds to Oxford and Stratford leaving on 14 September for four days. We feel we must compliment your driver Craig who looked after us. He was most polite and helpful far beyond what we have experienced in the past. He went out of his way to assist me a disabled person along with the others on the coach with mobility problems.Please pass on our thanks, you have an invaluable employee there.

I have been asked to email you to thank you and your driver for helping to make our trip to the Yorkshire Wildlife Park an enjoyable adventure.

Dear Gill,
I am writing to express my deep gratitude for how you and your company helped us out today.
When 60 of our Year 4 pupils were evacuated from Scott Hall swimming pool today, it could have left them waiting in the cold and near a road for more than 30 minutes. We genuinely appreciated the way you managed to get an alternative bus to us so quickly, allowing us to alleviate the situation.
Please pass on out thanks to the rest of your team.
Yours truly,
Mr Jude Rivers

Hi Gill
Just wanted to say a big Thank You to Mike who drove 60 7 year olds to Filey along with the staff. Everyone had a great time and this was partly due to Mike who was very punctual, friendly with the everyone and made the day run smoothly. He also went to help another school who had broken down on their bus..great work Mike!
Thanks again from Woodlesford Primary School.

Hi Gill,
Many thanks for providing a coach for our Reception class trip yesterday to Nell Bank.
I have some feedback for you – (I was on a course yesterday so unfortunately wasn’t here, but the class teacher informed me)-
The coach arrived nice and early, ahead of the class being ready and the driver was extremely helpful and professional. The coach had side doors which he opened to allow the children to get into the coach safely and not via the roadside. The class teacher was very happy and wanted me to pass on her thanks.
Please email me an invoice and I will send out a cheque today.
Many thanks again
Kind regards

Hi Gill,
Just to say thank you so much for the service you provided in taking three of our teams from different parts of Yorkshire over to Lancashire to play in our annual War of the Roses competition.

The coaches were all punctual and arrived at their destination at the stated time as this was a rollover system it was important to have the teams there at the correct time which they all were so once again thank you for all the work you did to make this happen.

Hi Gill
Just wanted to put in writing how fantastic our driver was for our visit to Cober Hill last week.

NOTHING was too much trouble for him. so lovely to such an accommodating guy and to have him for all three journeys. Makes a real difference to the whole tone of the visit.

He was brilliant!

Many thanks

Hi Gill,
Just wanted to let you know that the teachers and the children had a wonderful day today and great emphasis was made towards your drivers as to how nice and considerate they were with everyone especially the children. The children loved the coaches and felt very special today! The teachers asked me to convey these comments to you.

Please pass on our comments to your drivers as they are a real credit to your company. Nim

Dear Gill Just wanted to thank you for getting my Wigton Moor party safely to Huddersfield and back. The wedding went off very well and everyone was so glad to be there and part of it so thank you for part in its success. If I ever have to book a coach again I will come back to you, though I can't imagine when I would! Still, I can recommend you to other people, can't I, and I'll be happy to do so.

Thanks again, Alison Devlin

THANK YOU!

Gill and all at J&B Travel,

Thank you for being so helpful and understanding when we were faced with problems for our Class 2 trip. Without your flexibility with the coach we would have not been able to go on the trip and Gill, you have been very understanding, so thank you!

Dear Gill,

On behalf of the staff and the students at King James's School, I would like to pass on my thanks and gratitude for the fantastic service we received on our trip to Paris. The drivers, Jason and Pete, were professional, friendly, enthusiastic, helpful and engaging. Nothing was too much for them and it felt as though we had extra members of staff with us on the tour. They made the whole experience and visit run very smoothly from start to finish and the students appreciated their efforts. J&B, and in particular these drivers, will be at the forefront of our minds when we plan our next trip.

I would be grateful if you could pass on this message to the drivers concerned and look forward to using J&B again.

Regards

Hello Gill,

I just wanted to say thank you very much for the services provided on 14 August 2014 for the booking made to beamish living museum.

Your driver Chris was very prompt and professional throughout the journey and was a pleasure to have met. A real credit to the company.

It is because of this service that should we need coach hire again you will be my first and only coach company I choose.

Thank you once again for a fantastic service delivery. And I shall very much look forward to speaking with you again.

Kind Regards,

HI Gill

It was lovely to speak to you in person this morning, and thank you for the invoice! I was going to ask for it today at the end of this email and you beat me to it!

I felt I just had to put in writing how grateful we are for the fantastic service we got on Saturday from J and B coaches.

You have always been our best and only choice for transporting our young people to trips and performances but on Saturday 5th July 2014 you outdid yourselves! Leeds was packed with people and shut down for the Tour De France but you and your driver Paul had planned a route which missed the crowds and road blocks and got us safely and on time to our venue for the show. Our own Grand Depart courtesy of J and B coaches!

What could have been a frustrating and disappointing day was a triumph! Thank you so much

Best Regards (love)

Hi Gill

Just a quick note (as we are off on honeymoon today so busy packing!!) to say a HUGE thank you to you and our drivers on Sunday. The whole day ran so smoothly, and everyone loved the buses!! We travelled in them from the coach house to Leeds for the evening and were very impressed - the drivers made sure we were on the first bus - and when we actually fell behind the other bus we noticed that it stopped and waited to ensure that we were the first to arrive at the venue. Thank you!! We've attached 2 pics but our official photographer also took some of us in the bus which we will send over once we are back in a couple of weeks and have the photos!!"

Best regards,

Hi Gill,

I would like to say a big thank you for all your help and support in our service booking you for the trips this summer....

I would also like to say yesterday was fantastic the driver brad was amazing with the young people and staff and allowed for a lot of laughter.. he was understanding to the needs of the young people and helped if needed... it was also good to know that when we believed we was going to be late as some young people had got stuck on a broken ride he was understanding and didn't pressure us re the leaving time.

Again I would like to say a big thank you to yourself and brad and also request if possible that we can have him on the family trip as I do like to try and keep the same driver that the staff and young people know."

Thanks again

Amanda Bennett and the Bradford young carers team.

"Hi Gill,

I would just like to thank you so much (and I mean that sincerely your company should be awarded the best bus company in England) the way you handled the sale of the tickets. You made me feel so welcome and comfortable both on phone and in person (We could do with a lot more companies like yours) I would give you 120% thumbs up for your customer care, I feel like I have known you all my life. And I certainly would recommend you to anyone that asks me if I know of any bus companies (in fact I tell everyone about you even if they don't ask about bus companies). You certainly go that extra mile to help. Once again Gill a big big big thank you from me and all my family,

Best Regards"

"Just wanted to compliment you on the driver we had on Friday night in to the early hours of Saturday morning, (Pete), the conditions were terrible, however with his whit and cheeky personality he made what could have been quite a terrible experience, (blizzard snow conditions, etc), pass in no time. Well done to Pete, (were were the ones who gave him the sarnie)."

Dear Gill,

Thank you very, very much for the friendly and professional way that you and all your drivers have looked after us at St Andrew's during our Partnership week from 17th to 24th October 2015. I particularly enjoyed chatting to Jason as he drove us up and over the Buttertubs twice!

Our guests from Germany all enjoyed their experiences driving through Yorkshire.

Thank you for your attached bill. I will send it through to our Church Treasurer, Willie Duncan and he will be in touch with you shortly.

Many thanks once again,
