Mini Bus Hire

Whether its a short excursion to the seafront for the elderly or a stag night night out for the gentleman, mini buses are a great alternative to coaches or having the whole group travel in separate cars.

Mini buses can also be used on longer distance journeys where there’s not enough people in a group to fill up a whole coach. We have catered for all types of passengers from the rowdy to the sleepy.

We are happy to provide assistance in planning your outings:

  1. Calculating journey times and distances
  2. Help with on-site and/or off-site parking and arrangements
  3. Group discounts to attractions
  4. Information about facilities available on the journey and at the destination such as disabled toilets

Airport Transfer

The journey to your holiday destination doesn’t need to be stressful. If you choose not to drive to the airport, consider a coach or minibus as a great alternative to public transport and expensive taxis.

Also the cost of hiring a minibus is cheaper for groups than it is to hire a car. Whether you’re travelling for business or pleasure, you can save a lot of money compared to a hiring a taxi. It’s even cheaper than travelling by train for larger groups.

Our fleet is always modern, new and safe.
