Safety is paramount at all times and Coach Hire Booking is at the forefront of efforts to ensure this. As a member of The Confederation of Passenger Transport UK (CPT) Coach Hire Booking fully endorses the guidelines and principals of the national transport safety company BUSK (Belt Up School Kids), providing school organisers, pupils and parents a guaranteed standard when booking coaches.
All our vehicles are fully compliant and undergo stringent safety checks prior to each journey. Our drivers are put through selection criteria that go far beyond the mandatory passenger carrying vehicles (PCV) licence and are regularly Criminal Record Bureau (CRB) checked – we leave nothing to chance.
We launched our own initiative in 2012 to great success. Bright at Night has been rolled out across many of our local schools to encourage children and teachers alike to be road safety aware. It is a strand of Coach Hire Booking that we are extremely proud of and will continue to push and grow for as long as we are in business.
Coach hire prices are very much driven by supply and demand, and fluctuate. By building good relations with our approved operators, and by working with a huge UK wide network we know what is a fair rate for a journey and we can get it for you. We promise you a competitive price from a reputable coach hire company.
We know how important it is that everyone, particularly children, get where they are going on schedule, and we do everything possible to ensure this happens. Booking with us you have the reassurance of knowing that, in the event of an accident or breakdown, we have a huge nationwide fleet of vehicles nationally to call on if you need us to come to your rescue. Which is a reassurance that local independent operators, working outside the group, cannot provide.
Reassurance from booking to safe return
When you make a booking with us we will send you a confirmation e-mail that includes a unique reference number for that booking. Our customer line is manned 24 hours a day, 365 days of the year. So making and checking your booking, and getting in touch with us in an emergency, should you need to, is never a problem.
The complete package
In addition to transport, we can book venues and admissions, organise hotel accommodation and even arrange refreshments. If your trip is overseas, leave it to us to book and manage the ferry crossings – we’ve been doing it for years and can often secure great discounts. If you’re planning an outing for a treat we can provide special packages available for major theme parks. We also like to help your pupils enjoy the lighter side of life and therefore we are keen to share some great ideas for educational visits with you. Take a look at our Educational Visits page to see some great suggestions.
