Why we don't drive on some days

EUROPEAN UNION (EU) DRIVERS' HOURS REGULATIONS & 'NO DRIVING DAYS'

Throughout the European Union (EU), drivers of passenger carrying vehicles above a certain capacity and drivers of goods vehicles above a certain size are regulated by EU Drivers' Hours Regulations. These regulations, among other things, are designed to promote greater road safety; we are governed by them and we wholeheartedly support them.

Broadly speaking these regulations govern: the hours we may drive on a daily, weekly and fortnightly basis; the periods of daily and weekly rest drivers must take; and how all of this information is to be recorded. The regulations do not overtly impinge upon our operations, save only that, because drivers may not drive for more than six consecutive days, there will be the occasional 'no driving day' on those tours lasting longer than six days.

On such days we will either hire transport, or a driver to drive our minibus, or the day will be a 'free' day like, for instance, the free day we have in Bath, on the Cornwall & Bath tour.
