Coach Hire for Religious Groups and Events

We often provide coach hire services to religious groups and for religious events. Our drivers are mindful of other religions and cultures and will support your group on your journey and ensure you’re not rushed when at your destination. We understand that it’s important you allow for enough time for a peaceful experience and will work with you to deliver an itinerary that works for your group. Whether you’re travelling in the UK or further afield, we will get you there safely.

Church and cathedral visits

The UK is home to dozens of renowned cathedrals and churches, each of which have a unique symbolic meaning to the religious scape. That’s why we provide coach hire services for church and cathedral tours. We can provide day or weekend-long transportation so that you can see multiple locations in a single trip as well as transport for a single destination.

Cathedrals we frequently visit include Coventry, Durham, Canterbury and St Pauls in London. If you’d also like to view other sights when at your destination, our drivers are happy to take you to nearby destinations.

Our coach hire services are also available for European destinations, including France, Italy, Spain and Germany, as well as Eastern European destinations. For far-flung trips, we recommend booking at least a few months in advance to secure your vehicle and a fixed price.

Religious music events and choirs

Creation Festival in Cornwall, Greenbelt Festival in Cheltenham and Pentecost Festival in London are just a handful of the leading Christian music festivals in the UK that we often provide coach hire to and from. During these festivals, you’ll enjoy the latest Christian music as well as Bible talks and other activities. We have minibuses and coaches available and provide return transportation from anywhere in the UK. We also provide transportation to church choirs and groups performing at festivals or similar events, such as national choir competitions.

Vatican City, Italy

The Vatican is the headquarters for the Roman Catholic Church. We often provide transportation for large groups travelling to the city from the UK, where it’s more practical to travel by coach than flying due to the high cost of flying at peak times, such as in the summer.

Travel to Rome takes around 20 hours on a coach, for which we can travel for a full day, including overnight where you’ll be able to rest on the coach, or in two parts with a stop-off in France. When you arrive in Rome, your driver will take you to your accommodation and then to whichever destinations your itinerary states. If you would like, you can be dropped outside Vatican City on the day(s) of your visit to ensure you have ease of access to the city and its surrounding buildings.

Lourdes, France

A key destination for Roman Catholic pilgrims, Lourdes is a miracle site in southwestern France. It is a 15-hour drive from London, which you can travel in one go or with a stop-off along the French coast.

When in Lourdes, your driver will leave you to your own devices but be on hand should you, or any member of your group, wish to venture outside the town. There are many beautiful churches in the surrounding areas, including the Church of Saint John the Baptist in the commune of Bartrès, to the north of Lourdes, that you may want to visit during your trip

Airport transfers for pilgrimages

For pilgrimages or religious events that require travel beyond Europe, we can provide airport transfers to and from airports throughout the UK, flying from London, Manchester, Liverpool, Edinburgh and many other cities. We often provide transportation for Muslim groups travelling to Mecca in Saudi Arabia, for instance. January and December are the busiest times to travel to the city and therefore, if possible, we recommend travelling at other times of the year to keep minimal.
