Following the Government's announcement of Monday 23 March 2020, we are now closed until further notice.

Please be assured that we are monitoring all bookings and will be in touch with our valued customers as and when further decisions are made.

Stay safe and we hope to see you all back on the road very soon.


We all find ourselves in extremely unusual and difficult times. And in light of events evolving daily, the Motts Travel / Crusader Holidays Management Team has taken the extremely difficult decision to cancel ALL day trips* / tours and suspend operations with immediate effect until 30th April 2020.
(*except for The Tutankhamun Exhibition on Friday 17th April 2020, which is to be reviewed at the end of March).

Despite our very best efforts to keep trips running, we now feel that the current situation leaves us with no choice at all.

To date, we have adhered to all official Government directives and will continue to carefully watch the situation as it unfolds. It is our sincere intention to resume normal operations on 1st May 2020, provided circumstances allow.

Please be assured we have always had, and always will have, the very best interests of our customers at heart. We are truly sorry to cause disappointment with this drastic action as we know many of you have been looking forward to your Spring trips. Please bear with us as we contact all affected customers in departure date order, starting with this weekends trips. We ask you not to call us as our phone lines will be extremely busy.

Sadly, our staff have had to endure some unpleasantness, so we do ask for your patience and understanding during this unprecedented situation.

We would like to thank you very much for your continued support and understanding and look forward to seeing you on board again very soon.
