Our Story

It all started with a fancy hotel, a couple of sharks, the grand canyon and a pandemic.

We offer a great range of short breaks and holidays by coach, initially to customers across the South West of England and South Wales but with more pick-up routes to come.

We’re loving our journey with Toureasy and hope you’ll join us by coming on one of our trips and finding out why coach holidays can be such fun for anybody who loves sharing their experiences with others. It is a real pleasure to be able to do what we love to do – and even better to do it in a way that protects the planet that we all love exploring…

Our Founder, Sean Taggart, Has Always Loved Travelling

His first job was working the front desk in a fancy hotel in central London and over the last 30+ years he has run and owned travel agents, tour operators and tour wholesalers in the UK, USA and Australia, serving hundreds of thousands of customers over the years. He has travelled around the world, swum with sharks and flown The Grand Canyon – lucky man!

In the UK he served as Chair of the Coach Tourism Association for 10 years, during which time he learned a lot about why people love holidaying by coach along with some of the challenges the industry faced.

During 2020 he and the entire world were in the grip of COVID-19 and like so many others in our industry he had time on his hands. So, he started thinking about the opportunities that might emerge once the crisis passed and what that might mean for coach holidays.

Those thoughts led to more thoughts and conversations with friends, colleagues and family – many combined with a good glass of wine or pint of beer just to help the creative process – and shared over Zoom, of course!

As the months passed, a new coach tour operation started to take shape that would put sustainability at its heart
and try and to do things a little differently. He even managed to find a name everyone liked – Toureasy.

In fact, a number of his friends liked it so much that they decided to invest in Toureasy and that gave Sean the backing he needed to turn his idea into a business.

They are a great bunch of people and it feels good to have owners like Sean and his friends that really ‘get’ what we’re trying to do.

Early in 2022 Toureasy acquired the established Leisuretime brand in South Wales and Leisuretime by Toureasy was born!

Since then, the Toureasy team has loved bringing great value sustainable coach holidays to the people of South Wales – and we’ve gone from strength to strength. Our latest move has been to bring our remaining English pick-up points under the increasingly strong Leisuretime by Toureasy brand, something that we hope makes our customer holiday experience even better.
