Third i6 joins Olympia Travel fleet

Third i6 joins Olympia Travel fleet

Wigan-based Olympia Travel has taken another i6 Integral, thanks to Irizar UK’s aftersales service.


The 12.9-metre Euro 6 coach with 53 seats joins two Euro 5 12.9-metre i6s which, says Director Shaun Lewis, have performed well. But key to the decision to get another was the back-up, which he says beat the service offered by another supplier.


“I wasn’t happy with the back-up from the supplier of last year’s new coach, so I went back to Irizar UK,” says Shaun. “In all likelihood, they will also be supplying next year’s fleet upgrade, too.”


The coach has a DAF MX-series engine coupled with ZF’s popular auto-select AS-Tronic gearbox. The saloon has a toilet, drinks machine, two-screen media system and is carpeted, while the driver has the benefit of a reversing camera and modern safety systems such as AEBS and LDW.


A family-run company, Olympia Travel offers private hire, touring services and other transport with its 25-vehicle fleet.
