Coach Hire Derby

If you’re planning a coach trip to or from Derby or the Derbyshire area then we can help you get where you need to go by putting you in touch with one of over 195 trusted and reliable coach operators. The three-stage process is remarkably straightforward: Enter your information and the details of your trip; wait just a few minutes for our team to respond with up to 4 quotes; choose the quote that best suits your needs and book your coach online. The quotes you receive will outline not only the price of the package on offer, but a full specification breakdown and images of the vehicle you’re potentially booking.

Travelling by coach boasts a greater degree of comfort than other transport options and also allows a lot more space. Our operators can offer a range of vehicles, suitable for any journey length or group size. From double-decker deluxe coaches with reclining seats and bathrooms, seating over 70 people, to smaller, single tier coaches, there is plenty to choose from. The one thing uniting all of our operators, and all of their coaches, however, is quality, comfort and reliability.

Minibus Hire Derby

Planning a trip to Derby, but feeling like a coach might be a little too substantial for your requirements? Look no further than our minibus hire comparison network, which runs parallel to our coach hire system. A minibus is an ideal option for inner-city travel, as they are more compact and easier to handle. Our operators also deal with minibuses that can comfortably hold up to 30 people, so even if you are travelling with a larger group, it might be an option to seriously consider.

You should also rest easy in the knowledge that you’re getting the best price possible as we don’t take a commission. All of our operators pay a monthly membership fee in order to be a part of our trusted network, so you know you’re working with businesses that believe in their service. The companies we work with, many of them doubling as coach and minibus operators, supply only the best, high-quality vehicles with state-of-the-art features and drivers with a deep and comprehensive knowledge of the roads in and around Derby.

How we can help



There is always plenty going on in Derby and there are always reasons to visit. If you are planning one soon and have a large group in tow, we can point you in the right direction in minutes. We can also put you in touch with operators who will transport groups to and from Donington Park Raceway, which is particularly handy in June, when the annual Download music festival comes to town.

Airport Transfers

Airport Transfers

With East Midlands airport just a 30-minute drive south of the city, our operators are perfectly placed to offer group transportation to and from the airport. So, whether you have a large group holiday planned, or simply have a lot of luggage, we’ll be happy to arrange airport transfers for you and your family.



When the big day rolls around and you and your partner decide to tie the knot, the last thing you want to be stressing over is whether or not the grandparents know where they’re going or how they’re going to get there. Our operators work with a range of vehicles, ranging from double-decker coaches to executive minibuses, so we can help your guests get to the church on time and find their way to the reception afterwards in time for the first dance.

School Trips

School Trips

Reliability and trust are the two primary concerns of any teacher when arranging transportation for a school trip. Thankfully, all 190+ of our fully vetted operators can guarantee you a level of reliability that will keep the transportation to the field trip and back to the school at the very back of your mind. When you use our comparison tool, we’ll send you several quotes so you can also base your decision on affordability.



Our operators also cater to business travel, so can offer transport to and from your office for all employees, regardless of your requirements. Business trips to see clients, conference transport and even Christmas parties and team building days are all catered for and with our quick and simple quotation system, you should be able to find a company and a deal that aligns perfectly with your own business practices.

Visiting Derby

Visiting Derby

Sitting on the banks of the River Derwent, Derby sits comfortably between the Midlands (Birmingham) and the North-East (Sheffield), a short drive from both Burton upon Trent and Loughborough. Derby, which likes to be known as the most central in the UK, is steeped in history, with the thriving silk trade of the 18th century lending it an important place in England’s industrial revolution. The town was also originally settled by Romans, so enjoys a wealth of potential for history buffs.

As Derby is rather compact (indeed, it only earned city status in 1977), it is also far less intimidating than a lot of major English cities, but that doesn’t mean there’s not plenty to keep visitors occupied. Scale the Heights of Abraham by cable car and discover one of the region’s most unique hilltop parks, complete with cavern tours, fossil exhibitions and more. Or head to the Derby Silk Mill museum and experience the trade that made the city famous.

Sports fans, meanwhile have the world-famous Donington Park nearby and Pride Park Stadium,  home of Derby County FC. The ‘central city’ also enjoys extensive transport links with the rest of the country, which makes it an ideal launchpad destination for a full tour of the UK.

Pickup Locations in Derby

Derby Museum and Art Gallery
The Strand

Heights of Abraham
Dale Road

"We booked Paul to take 12 of us on a Stag Party centred around a Northern Soul night in Blackburn and the J.R. Tolkien walk in nearby surrounding countryside. Paul took care of our every need and couldn’t have been more helpful throughout. Always there whenever we needed him even with last minute adjustments to the day’s plans. The bus itself always immaculate and extremely comfortable to chat and share a drink whilst on route to various destinations. I cannot recommend their service enough and hope to use Paul again for events in the future. Many thanks and best wishes."

"Fabulous service once again. Our Driver Darren was really lovely, he was on time, had his route planned and a very professional driver. We arrived in style in our posh frocks, the executive mini bus was perfect, spotlessly clean and we loved the table seating. We felt like we were really looked after. On the way home Darren made sure that everyone was dropped off were they needed to be as it was a very a late night! Thank you, a true 5* quality service"

"I booked with Harrison Ford Travel as we wanted to travel in style to and from Southampton. The communication was great from the initial enquiry to being advised a day prior to our pick up to who our driver was going to be and the same with our return journey home. Our driver to Southampton, Paul, arrived a little bit earlier than arranged but he did phone to say this would be the case which we were pleased about as it meant that we could load the vehicle with our cases without rushing. Paul was very polite, extremely helpful and made me feel at ease as I am not a good traveller. It was a great journey and we even managed to watch 2 DVD's in comfort. There was an onboard fridge which we needed for my dads medication so this was a massive help. Our driver back to Nottingham, David, was also waiting for us when we arrived back in Southampton and it was also a great journey home. My overall experience was brilliant and I would definitely use them again and would recommend their services without hesitation."

Thank you to the drivers and all of the team!!"
