'Dear all at Woods Travel,
I'm writing to thank you for the excellent service provided by Woods Travel for the coach I hired for my birthday party last weekend. The coach itself was clean, obviously well maintained and very comfortable for my guests. It arrived promptly for the journeys to and from the venue, and the driver M was both professional and courteous.
Overall the coach journeys really added to the party experience, and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Woods to anyone who is thinking of hiring a coach for a similar event.
With kind regards'
AB of Westergate, Chichester, West Sussex
'Just to let you know, our children arrived home on the Angmering bus at approximately 11pm last night!
The note is a thank you to the bus company, whose driver must have been exhausted from both the drive and having a dozen kids on the bus for five hours! Although the kids phone batteries were exhausted, we were thankful they were in safe hands.
I was hoping to meet at the bus stop and pass on a couple of bottles of wine to the driver as a thank you, but unfortunately we could not get there and the kids were collected via a friends landrover!
Please pass on our thanks to Woods.'
IJ, parent of two students at a local Private College
'Could you pass on our grateful thanks to the bus-driver of the Fontwell bus last night, please. He did a magnificent job getting home at all.
From the college messages earlier in the day (thank you) we knew the buses would be running, and as the road conditions here were not as bad as on the Downs we realised too late to collect 'R' ourselves how bad the conditions had become: When 'M' came he found Duncton Hill blocked and returned home.
From evening local radio reports, we thought the bus would have to return to the College to board, so it was marvellous to see 'R' home safely and it was very reassuring that he was in safe hands throughout.
LB, parent of a student at a local Private College
'Just a quick note to say thank you and well done on behalf of the College for the way your drivers dealt with the tough conditions last night. We have also received several thank you from parents, Please pass on to your team.
GB of a local Private College

Please pass on our thanks to him for his prompt, reliable service and his friendly, cheerful company. He was particularly helpful and courteous in his assistance to one or two of the less mobile passengers which was greatly appreciated.
I shall be in touch again quite soon to confirm arrangements for our next trip. Let's hope that is just as successful and enjoyable a day out.
Thanks for all your help with the arrangements.'

'Thank you so much for the service that we received from you and your driver yesterday for our trip to Paulton's Park, your driver was excellent.
It cannot be easy driving a coach load of young and very excited children, but your driver went out of his way to ensure that the Rainbows and Brownies had a safe and hassle free journey to Paulton's Park and back home againl He also let us stay in the dry and warm of the coach until every child had been collected from the coach to be taken home at the end of the day.
Your driver remained cheerful and helpful throughout the day, so a very big thank you for the whole of the service that we received from your company yesterday.'
JM District Commissionaire of a Local Guiding Group

CD a Group Organiser for a Local Twinning Association
'Just settling back into the normal routine of work, but thought I should drop you a quick line to say how pleased everyone was with the Woods Travel coach I hired for our cricket tour.
I must also place on record our thanks to T (our driver) for a job well done. He was courteous and helpful throughout the week and despite the lack of cricket due to the bad weather (and reduction of midweek journeys), Twas an important part of our trip. I hope he enjoyed our company and that we were not too demanding of him. Please pass on our gratitude.
At some point, we will start the planning process for the 2013 tour. I would imagine Cornwall will again be the venue; and if the players would like coach transportation, you can be sure we'll be back in touch with you.'
NC Chairman of a local Cricket Club, West Sussex
'Just a note to say how well we were looked after by our driver R, on our visit to France last week. He was cheery and helpful, throughout our "tour". He even joined in with some of the various activities... and was learning some French at the same time!!!

'Please can you say a huge thank you to your drivers - they were fantastic on the day. I know there were a few problems with school locations and roadworks but the drivers were great throughout. They didn't show any signs of frustration with the staff from the schools and did their best to accommodate us.
We couldn't have run the day without them all and we really appreciate it. We had great coverage on South Today and The Herald are producing an 8 page spread about the event on Thursday.
Everyone of the 2000 pupils who took part went home with a certificate with your company's logo on the back along with a thank you for your support.
I look forward to working with your company again in the future.'

L was invaluable in helping me to plan the day which went without a hitch thanks in no small part to her professionalism.
Our driver, R was one of the best we have ever had the pleasure of being driven by and his pleasant manner and willingness to help our elderly members was very much appreciated to the extent that I have had request to secure his services for our next outing with Woods travel.

Praise must go again to PS for safely driving us - this time it was over 1000 miles. I had many comments from those on board regarding his excellent driving skills - careful and calm throughout.

Again many thanks for your hard work, looking forward to getting the next one off the ground later this year.'

I have had many congratulatory emails on the tour which many consider the best every in the history of 'Chevaliers'! R was an excellent driver who was most paitent, courteous and professional throughout. 'Gerrytours' are usually a survival of the fittest endurance test, but on this occasion the three days passed in a relaxed enjoyable manner. Each venue reached on time without detour or loss of way and in the comfort provided by the excellent 40 yr of Woods celebration coach!'

The holiday went like clockwork and his level of service, aid, thought and general help to the group was remarkable. We thought that it was important to let you know how we felt following this recent trip to Alsace and without hesitation we would be very happy to have E take us on future holidays.
Thank you very much indeed.'
