Director Steve Jenkins tells us more…
I’ve driven coaches now for 17 years, taking passengers on sightseeing tours in Scotland for a well-known tour operator.
Not long after moving to Doune from Loch Awe, I found myself planning a night out for my family and I soon realised there was little to no taxi service in the area.
I’m not one to shy away from a challenge so when I spotted a gap in the market for a reliable taxi service in Doune and surrounding areas, Doune Travel was born. We started four years ago with an eight seater minibus and within two years had won a Scottish business award, really showing the quality and professionalism of our young firm.
Since then, we have expanded to having multiple vehicles and now offer taxis for single travellers going for a night out, all the way up to 50 seat coaches for any occasion from local weddings to holidays anywhere in the country.
We also run bespoke guided tours for both the foreign and domestic market. This caters for everyone from families from America to day trips to Northern England and short breaks which are bookable as single persons or in groups, with several already planned in 2021.
We have worked hard to ensure all of our services adhere to regulations and are COVID safe, so much so that we have been awarded “Good to go recognition” from the Scottish Tourist Board and “safe travels” from the World Travel and Tourism Council.
As well as leisure taxis, Doune Travel has also been offering airport transfers. If these are business transfers, we are flexible in that the cost can be invoiced directly or via a corporate account to assist in local travel for meetings/hospitality or events in appropriately sized vehicles.
Our ethos is to “Why drive when you can make the process stress free”
