Last Thursday Visit Isle of Wight attended a group travel information session at Daish’s Hotel Shanklin.  Daish’s brought various group travel organisers to the hotel to talk to the islands leading attraction managers. English Heritage IW Steam Railway and National Trust were in attendance.  Group travel has always been important to the Islands tourism economy. Coach travel helps reduce traffic congestion by avoiding the need for multiple private motor car trips, so is supported by the DMOs Drive Less See More campaign.
