College Coach Hire

Cost is always a factor when dealing with colleges and students, which is why we’ve made sure all our coach hire services are competitively priced and efficient. We can transport up to 80 students per vehicle and have a variety of coaches and minibuses available, which ensures flexibility for your college. We work with a network of colleges throughout the UK to provide regular coach hire services and have a team of dedicated school and college liaisons to deal with your queries.

Why colleges use our coach hire services

There are a range of benefits of coach hire that go beyond cost. Our drivers know the UK’s roads like the back of their hand, which means delays when travelling by coach are incredibly rare, especially compared to travelling by train. Better still, they keep your students together, which means you need not worry about chasing students through the London Underground, for instance.

Features, you say? Our coaches have many. Most of our coaches, particularly our larger models, come with on-board entertainment such as televisions and audio systems that your students can plug their headphones into. By selecting a coach with plug-in facilities, you can rest assured that your students will be relaxed and occupied for the duration of the trip. We also have coaches with on-board toilet facilities, meaning no need for stop-offs, as well as drink-making facilities.

Sports team transfers

Nothing shrieks support for your college quite like a sports game. That’s why we provide coach hire for sports teams, including football, cricket, athletics and more, so that your college is represented at key competitions throughout the country. By participating in these well-known events, you give your students the opportunity to shine. Better still, by bringing a handful of your students not involved in your sports team to cheer those competing on, you help to provide encouragement.

Day activities and workshops

Traditional day trips such as college trips to London to the theatre as well as museums, galleries and similar sights are second nature to us. They’re a fantastic way to engage and educate your students for next to no cost, and they’re within easy access which, for schools based in the South and Midlands, could mean just a couple of hours on a coach. Better still, some of London’s top sights, such as the Natural History Museum and National Gallery, offer tours for groups and provide student discount, which means you can save further when booking a tour for your college in advance.

Our drivers can pick you and your students up from your college building, take you to your drop-off point, which you’ll agree with your travel specialist upon booking, and then leave you to it. If you’d like to leave possessions on the coach, that’s not a problem – we can meet you at lunch, so you don’t have to carry your things with you, and then at the end of your trip for the return journey.

Residential trips

Taking your students further afield on residential trips has all kinds of benefits. Not only will your students get to experience something they might not see or do every day, such as an activity holiday compromising outdoor adventure, but they’ll also get time away from the day-to-day of college life. Residential trips are also a brilliant way to improve communication between students, which is why these trips often include problem-solving activities that encourage team work and leadership skills.

There are hundreds of college residential centres throughout the UK that boast a range of activities and we can provide coach hire for every location. Whether you need to travel 20 miles down the road or 200 miles to another part of the country, your driver will pick you up on the first day of your

trip, transport you to your centre and, if you wish, provide travel for the duration of the trip, too. However, most residential centres have on-site activities, so you may just need a return journey.

Our best coaches can carry up to 80 students, plus luggage for no extra cost. However, we can also provide a fleet of coaches to transport more students, or an entire year group, or smaller vehicles for specialist subject groups.

End of term trips

College trips don’t all have to be about education. Sometimes, celebratory trips at the end of a term is a brilliant way to keep students engaged for the following year or to say ‘thank you’ for all their hard work that year. We work with a host of colleges to provide AS and A-level trips, including everything from European adventures, for which we can provide coach hire or airport transfers for, to at-home exploration to cities such as London and Edinburgh. With our services, you’ll have a dedicated driver for the duration of your trip that will take you wherever you want to go.
