Solent Coaches is now part of the Lucketts Group, a family coach firm based just down the road in Fareham. Nothing will change for customers. Youll get the same great service, from the same faces youve got to know over the years and its very much business as usual.
Lucketts is an independent and family owned coach provider operating a fleet of around 160 vehicles across five core brands Lucketts Travel, Coliseum Coaches, Worthing Coaches, Mortons Travel and now Solent Coaches. It was established in 1926 by Harry Luckett and is still owned by the Luckett family today, with his son David the current chairman.
Lucketts is the biggest independent coach travel provider in the South and has ambitious plans to grow even more in coming years. Solent Coaches will play an important part in this and we look forward to building on the existing success of Solent Coaches and growing the business with Lucketts backing.
