To Chris and everyone at CI,
Thank you for the excellent care during the our "dash to the snow" on the 28th February.
I think if there's a phrase that I'd use to describe the coach crew on the day it would be "goes the extrs mile" (hey, pretty good slogan for a coach company don't you think?).
Anyhow, my daughter Evielyn and I had a marvellous experience in Gerardmer, out on the piste by about 9:30 and a very full days skiing. The whole day seemed 48 hours long and a real adventure!
Please thank all the team on the day for their contribution

On behalf of Chris Tye and myself (seats 7 and 8), we would like to thank Coach Innovations and our 2 wonderful drivers / hostesses for a wonderful skiing trip to Gerardmer yesterday.
For people who generally ski in North America, we had a wonderful time in France, and the fact it was snowing ALL day whilst we were there made it even better.
The coach was well kept, the drivers very friendly yet professional (Mike and Pete), the seats were comfortable with enough leg space for adults – we were very impressed that they were leather. The trip itself was planned to the last detail, even down to us receiving text messages as the coach was late to our pick up point. The cross ferry journey was fine, the delay was beyond Coach Innovations control, and then sleeping all the way to the resort allowed us to recharge any batteries ready to hit the slopes. It was amazing to wake up and see snow everywhere, and to be able to park slope side, get changed in ‘pop up tents’, grab our skis and spend the day playing on the slopes.
We enjoyed spending time in the evening in Gerardmer itself, and would recommend Grizzly a nice place to eat.
The whole experience was a wonderful and value for money trip. Would we do it again, well either that or Disneyland, or a Christmas market or……
We would highly recommend you to anyone who is thinking of making a ‘sneaky’ trip to the ski slopes as this was a genuinely painless way to do it.

Following this weekend’s trip to Geraldmer, I thought it was a fantastic trip and a great idea for snow addicts like me to be able to get away without having to take time off. Despite colleagues saying I was crazy to do a day trip snowboarding, it was worth it. I was very surprised on how nice the resort was. Great conditions and I will definitely be recommending Coach Innovation to friends and family. It was nice to have 3 hrs after a day on the slopes to recharge and see a bit of the town. I thought 3 hrs was the perfect amount of time to visit a few shops and get some dinner and drinks.
The staff were very pleasant and helpful.
I am now extremely pleased that I had already booked a groupon deal to come this weekend too. It is a shame that the groupon deal is not running as several of my friends would have loved to come this weekend. Are there any more spaces on the coach?
Look forward to hearing from you and seeing the team again on Friday.
We all had fun thanks coach innovation and look forward to repeat the experience.
Can you arrange two day stay ie one night stay basic accomadation.
I have just returned from the Dash to the Snow this weekend (15-17th January 2016). I wanted to say such a huge thank you! I bought this as a gift for my other half for Christmas, and he is over the moon. The staff on the coach could not have been anymore helpful and friendly. They kept us up to date the whole way, served and offered drinks often and made everything so smooth. The actual ski area we were taken to was fantastic, great runs and because it is not a tourist area, we didn't have to wait more than a few minutes for lifts. We only paid €16 for a full day ski, boot and pole hire, which I think is great value. I hope to be able to book again this year with some friends as we had such a great time! Thank you so much Coach Innovations!
I was a member of the group (Southampton Property Association) that travelled to Gerardmer, leaving 3/3/16.
Firstly, just a big thank you to the coach crew, who were flawless in their service, good humoured and converted me to more travel by coach! If you could let the coach guys know would be really appreciated.
Many thanks - look forward to another trip soon.
Thanks for a fantastic trip!
You guys were great, couldn't have been more helpful and welcoming.
We had a great time!
I know you’ve been speaking to Nella with regards to putting together the ski trip we’ve been on, but I just wanted to say a big thank you to you and Mick and Pete.
I have just had one of the best breaks I’ve had in a long time. Mick & Pete were really decent guys, genuinely friendly and they definitely added to the enjoyment of the trip. I went skiing in Verditz, Austria, back in 1993, I wasn’t as tall as I am now, 6’3’”, but I did have some trepidation about this trip. I was actually pretty comfortable, yes it was a little cramped, but no more than going on a train or flying to los angeles for 11 hours, that’s just a flaw of being too tall. I managed to sleep, the coach was comfortable, good quality and quiet.
The hotel was good too, I would definitely go back there. Ok, so it’s not the kind of place you’d take your wife to as a treat, but it was perfect for a ski trip, it was quirky, with character, but that’s what you want. I wouldn’t want a travel lodge faceless type hotel for a ski trip. The rooms were clean, staff were friendly, all good. Thank you for sorting this out.
I think we were really lucky with the snow, we were a little nervous prior to leaving due to the height of the resort, but the snow we had was great, and it was the first time I’ve been off piste in deep powder.
All in all, I had a really good time, and coach innovations were an integral part in making it an awesome trip, please can you pass on my thanks to all involved.
I hope to repeat this trip next year.
Dear coach innovations,
I just wanted to write to say what a fantastic time my daughter and I had this weekend on our "dash to the snow". The coach was great, the resort was really enjoyable but most importantly Mick and Pete (drivers) were absolutely outstanding.
Thanks for a great adventure, we will see you again next year!
Dan & Bella
I just wanted to email to say thank you to our drivers Pete & Mick, as well as coach innovations for such a wonderful ski trip at the weekend, we really enjoyed ourselves, the service was amazing and we still can't believe how great everything was especially for the price!
We are already waiting to plan our next trip with yourselves, after looking on your website I noticed it does say "Spring Dash to Amsterdam" but it doesn't state any dates or information on when it might be, we are interested in booking this as our next trip with yourselves.
Thank you again for everything, this is two amazing trips we have had with yourselves now! (Paris overnight stay & Disney in August).
