"Coach holidays currently face a difficult trading environment as the 2009 ‘staycation’ boost fades and a return to the pre-recession level of overseas breaks remains unlikely. The UK’s ageing population may present opportunities, given operators’ experience in catering to this group, however, as with the wider travel market much depends on the pace of economic recovery and subsequent improvements to consumer spending intentions."

A coach holiday is defined as any holiday (eg at least one night spent away from home) that involves coach transport. There are two basic types:
