Happy Days Coaches

Happy Days Coaches have been operating for over 100 years and specialise in coach travel. The Happy Days Coach business was started around 1922 by the Austin family. They operated originally as coal merchants and later began to arrange coach trips at weekends when the coaches were cleaned, furnished with seats, and then used for day trips. In later years the Austin name merged into the Happy Days business. Happy Days originally had depots in Woodseaves, Stafford and Bronington.

Happy Days Holidays

They were one of the first coach companies to operate holidays into Europe after the Second World War and have now carried over 20 million passengers throughout Europe. Around 1951 Leon Douglas started a taxi business and adopted Leons as its trading name. Happy Days became part of Leons during 2012 and moved from their site in Greyfriars, Stafford, to a new purpose built base for Leons Holidays at Paton Drive, Beaconside, Stafford, while still retaining their Whitchurch depot. 2023 marks a very special milestone for Happy Days as they relaunch their holiday programme from an all-new purpose built headquarters in Whitchurch.

Happy Days Holidays will be operating under the trading name Leons Coach Travel and for 2023 will include all new pick-up points including Chester, Nantwich and Crewe.
