Welcome to Athena Holidays

We like to think Athena Holidays is a family business. Providing UK coach holidays from our base in Berkhamsted – Hertfordshire, we remain truly local by not using major interchanges and have joining points in convenient locations from Hemel Hempstead to Oxford.

We say family, as that starts with our name. Gordon, our Tour Organiser and primary driver’s daughter is called Athena, and like the meaning we believe we are a ‘wise choice’.

Family also works the whole way through the company. Partnering with TravelTime World, an independent family run travel agency in Berkhamsted, and also our guests, many of whom have made friends on our tours and we welcome you as part of our family with top class personal service.

Our holiday collection features tours all over the UK from Devon and Cornwall, to Wales, the Lake District and the South Coast. We also have holidays to suit all budgets, with simple family run hotels to Warner Leisure Hotels with their vast entertainment programme. On the majority of our holidays we have at least five rooms with no single supplement to help those travelling on their own.

The collection of day trips are also extremely popular. Starting with our Ladies Day at Ascot trip five years ago, we have now expanded the programme to Christmas Markets, Day Cruises, Railways and Seaside trips in the summer, starting from a very reasonable £23 per person.

Each of our holidays is hand crafted to make sure you have the best experience possible, from the comfortable hotels we stay at, to the carefully planned excursions included.
