Attract more coaches and groups

A passion for coach tourism

“Welcome to Stuart Render Tourism. As former editor of coach tourism trade magazine Coach Monthly, former chairman of the judging panel of the National Coach Tourism Awards, and past Board member of the Coach Tourism Association, you won’t be surprised to learn that I have a passion for coach tourism.

“Having written about visitor attractions and tourism destinations across the UK and continental Europe, and interviewed tourism professionals from all parts of the sector, I have a unique overview of the industry.

“I set up Stuart Render Tourism at the start of 2016 to offer consultancy, writing and PR support to those who wish to attract more visitors, customers and guests by developing their coach and group-friendly credentials.”
