About Us

Based in George V Avenue, Worthing Coaches is part of the south coast based Lucketts Travel Group.

Lucketts secured the long term future of Worthing Coaches in 2005 after the previous owners decided to retire from the business. The move has been good news for Worthing Coaches customers who now enjoy a wider range of holidays and day trips thanks to the strength of the parent company.

Lucketts was started in 1926 by Harry Luckett, the current Chairman's father. The business was predominantly a haulage and storage business but other activities were entered into, including keeping chickens and other farmyard animals.

David Luckett joined the company in 1963 and took over shortly after in 1966 when Harry died unexpectedly. The company's haulage business continued and went from strength to strength in the late 60s and early 70s, working for major names such as Ready Mix Concrete and Schweppes.

  David purchased the companys first coach in 1976, choosing to drive it himself. It proved a very enjoyable and successful venture and the second coach was soon on its way. By the mid-80s the coach fleet had outnumbered the haulage fleet and it was clear which way the company was proceeding.

The 3rd generation of Lucketts joined the company; Steve in 1983 and Ian in 1985. Since then the Lucketts Travel Group turnover has grown to over £12 million per year and employs more than 140 people. The latest venture has seen the start of a 12 vehicle per day contract for National Express running out of Portsmouth via multiple towns throughout the South of England to London, making Lucketts the largest National Express operator in the South.
