There’s nothing like the joy of the open road, the endless possibility of travel.
Imagine you’re on a family holiday. When you’re travelling with a large group, suddenly the stresses start multiplying. You’ve lost your travel companions somewhere down the road, and the kids are screaming in the back seat.
Or maybe you’re on your way to a business event. Wouldn’t it be nice to discuss strategy on the way? All of your colleagues are travelling separately, so unfortunately that’s not an option.
Luckily, we’ve got a failsafe solution to all of your group travel woes: hiring a luxury motor coach.
The motor coach offers a comfortable, stress-free solution to eliminate the pressures of group travel. With a trusted driver at the helm, you can sit back, relax and enjoy the ride.
Read on for our six top tips for travel by luxury motor coach.
1. See the World from the Comfort of a Luxury Motor Coach
Motor coaches are ideal for school and university trips, corporate outings, athletic club events and family holidays.
When planning these events, the sheer challenge of simply keeping the group together can be enough to trigger a full-blown panic.
In a luxury motor coach, however, everyone can stay together. You don’t have to worry about travelling in separate cars and arriving at your destination at different times.
Not only that, luxury coaches offer a far more comfortable standard of travel than you can get in any car. With cushioned, reclining chairs, you can arrive at your destination feeling relaxed and refreshed.
Even better, travel by coach gives you a real flavour for the area you’re travelling through. All the while, you’ll be sitting in plush seats, and can even opt for onboard entertainment if you get tired of looking out the window.
Unlike travel by plane, you’ll see great views and will also have much-needed opportunities to get out and stretch your legs.
2. Choose Your Route
Luxury coaches offer a range of versatile travel options. Whether you’re planning a long-distance trip or a short jaunt to a neighbouring city, we’ve got the perfect coach options for you.

If you’re looking for something a bit more exotic, you might want to explore the possibilities of coach travel in Europe.
From our base in the UK, the whole European continent is right on our doorstep and beckoning to be seen. Whether you want to see castles along the Rhine or relax in a Parisian cafe, our flexible travel options open up a whole world of possibilities.
3. Know Your Coaches
When you’re planning a coach trip, you’ll want to think about the size of your group and the amenities that you need while travelling. If you’re taking a longer trip, for example, you might want to make sure that your coach has a lavatory. Some coaches even offer basic kitchen facilities.
With a wide range of sizes and amenities, we’ve got the perfect luxury coach to suit any coach hire needs.
We offer large coaches that can carry up to 60 passengers. For your maximum comfort, these coaches also come equipped with lavatories and storage for luggage under the coach.
If you’re travelling with a smaller group, we also offer two different sizes of mini-bus. These are suitable for up to 35 passengers, and provide a great alternative to carpooling.
4. Play by the Rules
As with any form of travel, luxury coaches come with a certain set of rules to make sure that everyone has a good time.
Food and alcohol are allowed on most coaches. You’ll just want to make sure that you clean up after yourself. If you’re partaking in alcohol, make sure that you keep things respectful.
Unfortunately, pets are not allowed on most motor coaches, though the Equality Act guarantees that assistance dogs can come on board.
It’s also a good idea to speak with your driver at the start of your trip to go through the safety features on the coach.
5. Meet Your Driver
Your driver is an important part of your coach journey, and we make sure that all of our drivers are friendly and knowledgeable. If you have questions or concerns at any point in your ride, our drivers are there to help!
Our drivers are highly trained and hold the appropriate licences for driving a motor coach. Your driver is there to make sure all aspects of your coach journey go as smoothly as possible.
It’s important to remember as well that drivers have to abide by certain laws and regulations.
According to EU rules, the driver cannot drive more than 9 hours per day. If your trip requires more than 9 hours of travel per day, there will need to be two drivers on your coach. Drivers are also required to take breaks every 4.5 hours.
6. How Do I Hire a Coach?
It’s quick and easy to hire a luxury motor coach. All you need to do is provide your contact details, date of travel, pick-up and drop-off details, and number of passengers.
If you’re unsure of which type of coach you need, our friendly and professional team will be happy to help you with your selection.
You can also let us know if you need any special amenities for your trip, and we will do all we can to accommodate.
