Hams Travel welcomes new premium arrivals from Volvo

Hams Travel of Kent and Sussex has taken delivery of two new Volvo integral B11R 9900 coaches as the latest additions to its almost 80% Volvo fleet.

Volvo B11R 9900

One of two new Volvo integral B11R 9900 coaches for Hams Travel’s almost 80% Volvo fleet. This vehicle is named Jacqueline Anne in memory of one of Hams Travel’s employees, who passed away earlier this year.

The family run company prides itself on offering quality and luxury to its customers, who turn to Hams Travel for their school trips, days out and extended tours, both domestic and continental.  The addition of two 9900s to the fleet ensures drivers and passengers alike can enjoy a premium coach experience.

These new 9900s follow the delivery of a long line of new Volvo B11Rs with JHV2 bodywork over the last few years for the operator.

John Ham, Director at Hams Travel, said: “We are excited to be taking delivery of these two new 9900 integral Volvo coaches – their new flagship vehicle.  In addition to the proven operational performance of the B11R chassis, the highly impressive aesthetic appearance of the 9900 is already turning heads among our customers.  In particular, the ‘Z’ shaped window line and theatre flooring really does convey a premium experience for passengers.

“After sales support is also extremely important to us and we have a great relationship with our local dealership MC Truck and Bus. They always go the extra mile so we’ve used them for many years and this was also a key factor in our decision to go with Volvo again.”

Richard Mann, Volvo Retail Bus & Coach Sales Manager, said: “It’s always a real pleasure working with Hams Travel and it is great to see them including our new premium coach, the 9900, in their fleet. In addition to the impressive appearance, I’m confident the coach will be a great addition from an operational perspective, bringing more fuel efficiency, safety and comfort for the benefit of their customers and drivers.”

Hams Travel in Flimwell was established in 1963 by Donald and Patricia Ham.  More than five decades later, is run by the next generation of the family, including brothers Paul and John.
