Hi. Has anyone here been on a Shearings holiday recently, and can tell me about the front seat? I have been allocated modest board no. 1 and fear it won’t give me enough room. If it’s a solid board that is it, game over. I spoke to someone in the company and she seems to think it may have a bit of room at the bottom for the feet, but I’m not so sure.
Also, I have a 5.40am pick up. Worried I can’t cope ‘toilet’ wise. If I cancel now, I lose 70% of the holiday.
Are you paying exactly the same as everyone else Jazzi or are they offering you a discount?
I looked here https://www.leger.co.uk/pdfs/Seating-Plan-Executive.pdf and it says Modesty board seats have slightly less legroom and may not have footrests. If you’re paying the same as everyone else you might want to get in touch with citizens advice and ask whether you can claim a full refund? \
How long is the trip? I’d probably not be happy either if I was paying the same as everyone else tbh - can’t they give those seats to children instead?
ask them to change your seat Jazzi ,Tell them you are not happy with a front seat as you will throw up being so close to the front , and Most Coaches have Toilets on board usually to the middle so if you need the toilet a lot ,maybe get one close to the middle …
I looked at their site and it says for a small supplement you can book 1st or 2nd row seats .So have you?
aYou must get in touch with them to say you don’t want that seat ,it’s not suitable . If you didn’t request it and they just gave it to you they’re out of order surely if they won’t change it ?
Ask to speak to Head Office if you get any aggro.
I used to go with Shearings on a regular basis, until they went bust a few years ago. Since their resurrection, prices have doubled, no doubt in order to pay the creditors, and to test the market of staycation people. You even had free drinks vouchers previously on some trips, but sadly them days are long gone. When I look at their latest offerings, with eyewatering prices, one tends to give them a very large swerve, As for front seats, a charge of £10 used to be levied on these, not sure if that’s still the case. I used to pick seats near the back of the coach, namely because you had more options to spread yourself out with empty seats. The only problem with that, was it took ages to get off the coach with the people in front faffing about getting off. Even other coach companies are very expensive, so that unfortunately, is the end of my coach holiday travails!
