Some 2,500 jobs were lost and 64,000 bookings cancelled when it collapsed into administration in May.
CPT policy chief Alison Edwards said: “Allowing the coach travel sector to collapse would be a dereliction of duty from the Government. The sector is vital to continued growth of UK tourism by ensuring that millions of people can visit attractions across the UK each year.
“Without support for coach travel we are risking not just the future of the sector but jobs across the tourism industry as people struggle to travel to days out.”
Kurt Janson, a director of the Tourism Alliance added: “Coach operators are a large and vital component of the UK’s world-class tourism industry.
“Whether it be taking overseas visitors on tour, students on educational trips, transferring conference delegates, bringing sports fans to games or providing day trips for people to visit attractions or see a West End show, they bring revenue and jobs to every destination they visit.”
