Sacked by the bus company Stan and Jack get jobs as drivers ferrying punters to and from a holiday camp and arrange for the rest of the family to come and stay. Blakey is there as the chief security guard and manages to get caught in accidental compromising situations with the camp's nurse. The Butlers head for one disaster after another as Jack and Stan,still chasing women half their age,take two girls for a bus trip on the sands only for the bus to sink in as the tide approaches. Olive gets into bed with someone else's husband when she makes it back to the wrong chalet in the dark and 'little' Arthur sprays the chalet with ink,requiring a re-painting job. The holiday over Arthur's sidecar combination manages to come apart on the way out as it did on the way in. Written by

The British Rail ferry shown as a close up in rough weather is the MV Vortigern (1969-2005). See more »

Third and final spin-off from the popular ITV sitcom "On The Buses", in which busman Reg Varney, Bob Grant and Stephen Lewis are sacked from the local depot and find work at Pontins holiday camp in Prestatyn. As another imdb user pointed out, you either love these films or you hate them. I personally love it, partly because I'm a fan of the series, having collected a number of episodes on video and because the charm is still there. This is thanks largely to all the series regulars being present, for instance, in the second movie from "Till Death Us Do Part", "The Alf Garnett Saga" (1972), Warren Mitchell and Dandy Nichols were retained but Anthony Booth and Una Stubbs had been replaced by other actors and the effect was disastrous.
