The Original Tour has broken sales records for 2013 and for the first quarter of 2014, crediting the support of agents as it introduces its most high tech fleet to the capital’s roads.
The company's managing director, Colin Atkins, said: “We broke all our records last year and have already beaten our targets for the first quarter of 2014 and with all the signs pointing towards a very healthy summer for London’s tourism we look forward to doing more business with our trade partners than ever before.”
The company offers competitive commission rates backed by a dedicated account manager, plus training and promotion support. A choice of flexible ticketing options includes the purchase of pre-printed vouchers in advance, production on demand by the agent, or a web affiliate programme.
At the same time the company is celebrating its recent 62nd anniversary with the introduction of its most modern, high tech, low emission fleet of 32 buses at a cost of £40million in time for the summer season.
The new fleet exceeds requirements for the London LEZ standards and features the latest exhaust treatment systems to reduce admissions. In addition, all older buses have been fitted with new low emission engines. The revamp also marks the rollout of the company's new wheelchair restraint system which is less intrusive and quicker and easier to fit for wheelchair customers.
