Barnsley firm Gee Vee Travel has received a six-figure finance package from Yorkshire Bank.
The travel company, founded in 1984, has used the funding to support the purchase of a new, executive standard coach with on-board facilities including a television and coffee machine.
Gee Vee provides a luxury escorted holiday experience for customers from all over the UK. Popular trips include Blackpool and Torquay, with European travel stretching to Spain, Italy and Austria. The new coach will enable Gee Vee to expand its offering and upgrade its fleet. The family-run business, which already employs around 25 members of staff from the local area, will look to hire more over the coming months to keep up with increased demand.
The transaction was completed by Sarah Gwynne, sales manager, asset finance, Yorkshire Bank.
Nick Leatherland, relationship manager, commercial banking, Yorkshire Bank, said: “We’re proud to have worked with Gee Vee Travel for many years, and are delighted to have been able to support them with their growth plans. This new purchase will enable them to continue offering high quality holidays and boost the economy with new jobs.”
Gordon Clark, Owner, Gee Vee Travel, said: “Yorkshire Bank has always provided us with great service, and this time it was no different. We are thrilled that they have assisted with the purchase of this fantastic new vehicle and we can’t wait to make the most of it over the upcoming summer months.”
