Welcome to Oates Travel

Oates Travel is a professional, family-run coach and tour operator, established for over 30 years in the heart of the beautiful Duchy of Cornwall, on the south western tip of Britain.

St Ives

From our base in the picturesque fishing port and artistic centre of St Ives, we offer a range of services, with the majority of our work being in the specialist areas of touring and excursions.

With a wealth of experience and knowledge, our staff provide a quality service and our fleet of modern touring coaches offer every comfort, all having at least the minimum specification of seat belts, reclining seats and air conditioning.

We operate an extensive series of day tours throughout the year all over Cornwall and beyond, with a wide range of pick-up points available around the local area to make your trip as comfortable and convenient as possible.

Our own holiday tour programme also operates year round and covers both Britain and Europe, ranging from short weekend breaks to long distance touring holidays, direct from the Duchy.

We also offer a comprehensive range of services from basic coach hire to full tour planning, group travel, corporate hospitality, port and airport transfers and incoming tour handling.

We are members of the Confederation of Passenger Transport and the Coach Tourism Council.
