Hiring a coach isn’t something you do everyday (unless you go on a LOT of group tours) so when it comes to coach travel there are some things you need to know. We’ve put together three essential things you need to know when it comes to coach and minibus hire. Are you ready? Let’s get started…
Cheap coach hire services exist
Yes, cheap private coach hire really does exist. It is often cheaper than expected, especially when you consider a per person price. Plus cheap coach hire has so many other benefits in addition to competitive prices and money-saving rates. Let’s give you an example…
Bob says he wants to go away for his 30th and you’re in charge of getting everyone to the airport for a weekend away in Spain. Bob and all of his mates live around 50 miles away so that is a lot of expensive airport transfers. Our first tip would be to forget about the multiple taxis and get everyone in one vehicle. Less vehicles = less stress.
Reputable coach companies have plenty of vehicle sizes to choose from to make sure everyone can travel in comfort. Plus you get door-to-door pick ups so Bob’s oldest (and most unreliable) mate from school won’t be forgotten about!
Group coach hire also allows you all to have a cheeky drink on the way to kickstart Bob’s 30th birthday in style as no one would be driving there or back. Oh and did we mention your luggage is also included which leads us nicely on to our next point.
Your luggage is included in the price
As mentioned above, all of your luggage and bags are included in your hire price. That’s right, Bob can bring along an extra bag for those ‘just in case’ outfits – we see those speedos, Bob!
Unlike most cheap airlines we don’t believe in hidden costs so your overall price includes all of your luggage. You can stow bags in the baggage department in addition to a carry on bag to store above your head. That’s another thing you don’t need to worry about.
Coach hire is good for the environment
Last but certainly not least, it is good for the environment. When you and your group hire a coach you’re removing a fair few cars from the road and in turn that means fewer emissions being pumped into the world. Bob may not show he cares for the environment but you know that deep down he’s an eco-warrior so hiring a coach will definitely put you in his good books. Group travel has never been so environmentally friendly!
So all in all coach hire is cheap, good for the environment and has no hidden extra costs. What more could you want? Actually good customer service also helps which we’ve got covered.
