If you like something, then stick with it — that’s the approach taken by cruise holiday company Titan Travel, who have just taken delivery of their 500th Volkswagen Caravelle.
Titan’s current fleet of 140 Caravelles is used to take transport customers in comfort between their home and their cruise departure points.
The vehicles typically cover 50,000 miles a year each, making the total annual mileage of Titan’s fleet around seven million miles. They are all silver and replaced every three years at around 150,000 miles, while this year Titan expects to increase its fleet to 200 Caravelles.
“We use the Caravelle exclusively because it provides our clients with the best possible levels of comfort and space, as well as being a stylish and reliable vehicle,” said Dan Whitehouse, Titan’s Marketing Director.
With twin sliding doors to ease entry and exit, the Caravelle is a no-compromise people carrier with space for up to six passengers. The two middle seats can swivel to face the rear to create a sociable lounge environment in the rear compartment, while all rear seats slide on a runner system to offer the flexibility to increase space for passengers or luggage as required.
Alastair Hemmings, National Fleet Manager, Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles, said: “The Titan fleet is a great testament to the image, durability and affordable quality of the Caravelle, and we have been delighted to work in partnership with such a loyal and happy customer for so long.”
