Well to say that we Welcome 2022 is yet again an understatement. The last two years have proved to be very difficult years for everyone but here we are, looking forward to a better future. We would first of all like to thank you all so much for your kind words, support, patience and understanding in these unprecedented times. It means so, so much to us all here at Aberfeldy Motors.
We really do value all our customers and, as a small family firm, you must also be aware that these current times are not standard and the worldwide pandemic has been challenging to put it mildly. Things are still different for the start of the year and we will continue with our rigorous approach to maintain passenger safety. Last year a few of the attractions in our Itineraries were either closed or numbers were restricted, we would hope for this year this will be resolved but we will keep you informed. As this Brochure is printed in December we have no idea of the guidelines which will be in place but we will notify you of any with your Travel Tickets. Of course, if you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to call us.
HOW TO BOOK

Travel tickets and Luggage Labels are sent normally ten days before departure.
