To Milford Sound In Safety
To Milford Sound in Safety
Milford Sound Select sets the benchmark for bus safety on the beautiful though remote Milford Sound Road. We cover the whole safety gamut specifically covering communication, first aid, breakdowns, driver education, road and weather events, service and quality standards.
The Milford Sound Select coach is one of the few on the remote Milford Sound road to carry a satellite phone for emergency use. The Fiordland National Park has very limited cell phone reception, in most cases a satellite phone will be the only means of communication with emergency services.
Qualmark is New Zealand tourism's official mark of quality and the world's first integrated quality assurance system.
