Operator, Brent Thomas Coaches, is a long-standing Volvo Bus customer and has purchased the 9700 after buying two of the same in 2015. The new vehicle has a 57-seat passenger capacity and includes all the latest features expected by today’s seasoned coach traveller. It will be used on the company’s UK and continental holiday programme.

A long-standing relationship

“We’ve worked with Volvo Bus for a long time now and it made sense to continue this successful relationship,” said Neil Grubham, Operations Manager of Brent Thomas Coaches. “As ever it was important to us to purchase the best possible quality coach and the Volvo 9700 is head and shoulders above its competitors.  We have been delighted with the 9700s we have been running, with impressive fuel efficiency as well as high specification and quality finish. It was an easy decision to make a repeat purchase as our tour programme expands.”

“We look forward to continuing our long standing relationship with them for many years to come”

“Brent Thomas Coaches has been a loyal Volvo customer for many years and we’re pleased that they’ve gone for the 9700 again this time,” Jo Standbridge, Volvo Retail Bus & Coach Sales Manager, added. “We look forward to continuing our long standing relationship with them for many years to come and will work hard to remain their manufacturer and service provider of choice.”

Brent Thomas Coaches has been established for more than 25 years and continues to be a family owned and operated company.
