Trips and Excursions

Trips and Excursions

  • We arrange door-to-door social outings for elderly and disabled people using a hired 15-seater minibus via our Community Bus.
  • In order to attend our trips and excursions you must complete and return our VASL Car Scheme registration form.
  • The administration time to organise these trips is very high and it’s  very frustrating to have to change the planned route when a cancellation is made. We would appreciate commitment to the trips that you have booked except in an emergency.
  • We will only be able to offer a refund if we fill your cancelled seat. We  reserve the right to cancel at late notice but will try to rearrange the trip.
  • Passengers must be able to manage on their own.
  • As this is a larger bus small fold up walkers can be taken but you must tell us when you book a seat as only 2 allowed per trip but some of the destinations have got a Shop Mobility scheme.
  • We’re only allowing 10 passengers per trip because of walkers, shopping & Covid
  • Payment should be made within 14 days of booking seats for the trips.
    You can pay online: CAF Bank Ltd Sort Code: 40-52-40 Account No:  00015262 (put your “name” & “trips” in reference)
    You can write a cheque (made out to VASL) and post it or drop it in to Torch House.
