Alfa Travel takes further batch of Tourismos

Since it began ordering Mercedes-Benz vehicles in 2011, Alfa Travel has stayed loyal to the brand and has now taken delivery of seven new Tourismos, adding to six taken in 2016.

The latest coaches for this year’s touring season each seat 49 in Travel Star Eco upholstery, and feature arm- and foot-rests, air-conditioning, centre toilet, boon kitchen and fold-out trays. 

“The recent delivery of seven new Tourismos represents our enthusiasm for a continued partnership with Mercedes-Benz,” says Paul Bull, operations director, Alfa Travel. “Now, with a total of forty-seven Tourismos in the fleet, we are delighted to offer our passengers the highest standards in reliability, comfort and quality on our tours. At an operational level, regular use of Fleetboard telematics ensures us of maximum driving efficiency and safety for all on board.” 

Supplied by Mercedes-Benz Coach Sales at EvoBus (UK), power to the seven new Tourismos is provided by OM 470hp, 290kW engines  paired to 8-speed Powershift automatic transmissions.
