Travel in Safety & Style
DATTCO our Motor-coach Partner - Travel in Safety & Style
Some say that getting there is half the fun… and that is surely the case when booking a group excursion with Tours of Distinction. Our professional team curates every aspect of each tour itinerary with the enjoyment of our clients in mind right down to the motor-coach company we contract. The comfort and safety of our clients is paramount to our philosophy…to make every journey with us the best that it can be, and that’s why DATTCO is our motor-coach partner.
We like the fact that DATTCO is not only a Connecticut company, but one that has been family owned since 1924 and is now third generation strong. Today, DATTCO has over 2,400 employees and 29 offices, terminals and service facilities located throughout New England, to ensure customer satisfaction and safety.
DATTCO is a sanctioned carrier for the Department of Defense, an approved carrier recognized by the Transportation Safety Exchange, and has been awarded the esteemed TRAX Insurance Risk Control Award of Excellence. President and owner Don DeVivo is the current chair of the prestigious American Bus Association, the largest tour operator, and motor-coach trade association, nationwide. DATTCO, as a company, is widely respected as a “rock-solid” operation according to Metro Magazine.
Most importantly, DATTCO takes maintenance and safety seriously. The DATTCO Motor-coach Safety Department is overseen by a Senior Safety Director and staffed by a full-time Motor-coach Safety Director, Training and Compliance Supervisor, Driver Trainer and Assistants. Drivers undergo a rigorous 40-hour classroom session, evaluation, and extensive road training prior to being placed in service. DATTCO is one of the few companies that has a driving simulator as part of all new driver and refresher training. The simulator is housed in a full-size motor-coach within a mobile classroom. The entire fleet is equipped with an accident event recorder surveillance system to monitor driver behavior, operation and response to changing road and traffic conditions.
DATTCO has one of the largest and most state of the art motor-coach fleets in the country including more than 100 luxurious motor-coaches manufactured in Belgium by Van Hool. The DATTCO fleet offers a variety of motor-coach sizes and seat configurations enabling Tours of Distinction to choose the motor-coach that is perfect for your group and one that fits your budget.
