Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles is to supply 41 Transporter-based Caravelles to Acromas Travel, the parent company of Saga Holidays, Saga Cruises and Titan Travel.

The vans – which are fitted with the firm’s Bluemotion technology – will be used for VIP door-to-door holiday transfer services.

Acromas already runs more than 150 Volkswagens, but the company said the investment in the new vehicles would make it easier to operate the fleet 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. It claims the fleet covers more than seven million miles a year.

“The Volkswagen Caravelle delivers excellent reliability and outstanding residual values,” said Andy Creba, head of transport at Titan Travel.
