Great Days Out is a service operated by Arrowline Minibuses Ltd. We have been serving the local area since 2000 and since 2015 we have been providing an excursion program for those who enjoy getting out and about, but may not have the means to do so or who wish to have a more social day out with like-minded people with similar interests.

Our Great Days Out 2024 brochure is out now!

We look forward to welcoming new and existing customers to this year’s trips.

By using 16 seater minibuses we are able to take routes through narrow lanes and roads not accessible to larger buses, enabling you to see more of our beautiful countryside. Once at your destination we can usually drop you right at the door, again not accessible to coaches, also 16 passengers getting on and off is a lot quicker than waiting for 50 or so passengers attempting the same. The vehicles are modern with three-point seat belts, low steps and grab-rails for easy access and air-conditioning for passenger comfort.

We offer a door-to-door service, if geographically possible, and achievable within a reasonable time frame, we will pick you up and drop you off at your door. This is a service only available to passengers living within Salisbury City limits. For those living further afield we will suggest the nearest pick-up point to your home on our pick-up route where we could meet you, having made your own arrangements to get to that point.

The service is for individuals and groups alike. Mums and Dad’s why not take the kids on one of our outings to the seaside? Sons and daughters why not take Mum or Dad out for a change of scenery without you having to drive? We welcome enquiries from WI Groups, Bowling Clubs, Socials Clubs, Church Groups, Sports Clubs and Gardening Clubs.

Organise “Your Own” Day Out

As you can see, we cover a wide range of destinations and interests in our program. However, our itinerary is not exhaustive. Should you wish to visit somewhere we are not advertising and you have 16 likeminded people we will happily quote for a bespoke day out tailored to your exact requirements.

If you would like to be kept informed of any additional trips we may offer, please provide us with your address and contact details and you will be the first to hear about them. You will also be the first to receive the new brochure when they are published.
