Halpenny Travel goes for Volvo again with new B11R

Destined for a wide range of tourist work, the Dundalk based company chose the B11R SC7 due to its combined aesthetic appearance and operational performance.  With 53 seats, the full executive facilities include USB ports, WiFi, CCTV and forward facing camera, making the coach well positioned to meet all driver needs as well as the requirements and expectations of today’s coach traveller.
   
John Halpenny, Owner and Director of Halpenny Travel, said: “We particularly like the styling of the Sunsundegui bodywork, which is very impressive, while at the same time we wanted the fuel efficiency and low emissions offered by the B11R chassis, which played a key part in our decision making.
   
“We’ve included all the best interior features, as many of our tourist customers come from countries such as the USA, China and Germany, who are experienced travellers who want and expect the best in passenger comfort and convenience.
  
“Our Retail Sales Manager, David Porter, was extremely helpful throughout the whole purchasing process, as were Sunsundegui, and as our fleet is 90% Volvo, we’ll have no hesitation in going to them for our future vehicle requirements.”
   
David Porter said: “The B11R is an excellent proposition for operators all around Ireland and the UK.  It is proving particularly popular in the strong Irish tourist market with many operators placing orders for it this year.  We believe this is down to the excellent fuel efficiency, low emissions and overall operational reliability the vehicle offers.  We are delighted to be working with Halpenny Travel again and to be supplying this excellent coach to meet their needs and those of their passengers.”

Halpenny Travel has been established for more than 90 years and is family owned and run, with the third generation currently responsible for its operation.  The company specialises in the provision of high quality coach travel for overseas visitors to Ireland.
