Coach Hire Southampton

If you have a group trip planned to or from the idyllic port city of Southampton in the coming weeks or months, hiring a coach is certainly one of the options you should consider. Whether you live in the city centre, or in one of the many neighbouring coastal towns and cities, we can provide you with a number of coach hire options for a very competitive price. Travel in comfort in a luxury coach with wi-fi, reclining seats, bathroom facilities and onboard entertainment, or save money with a more standard, but no less safe and reliable service. The choice is yours.

Our secure system couldn’t be more straightforward. Use our online quotation system to input your trip details such as date, locations, party size and luggage requirements, and we’ll provide you up to four free quotes from our network of over 195 operators, all of which are no-obligation. You won’t hear from them unless you want to hear from them. Our operators range from some of the largest companies in the country to family-owned businesses offering a more personal experience, so whatever your needs, we’ll be able to pair you with an operator who can comfortably accommodate them. Whoever you choose however, you can ensure they come personally recommended by us as we perform licensing checks on all of the operators we work with.

Minibus Hire Southampton

Most of our coach operators also offer the option of minibus hire, which provides greater maneuverability at a more flexible and affordable price. Recommended for inner city travel and for groups of less than 30, a minibus is a faster option than a typical coach and can offer a greater level of convenience for smaller parties and for shorter day trips.

You can arrange your minibus using the same hassle-free system as our coach hire comparison service. Our service is quick and secure, with our network of operators representing the very best that the British transportation industry has to offer.

Visiting Southampton

Visiting Southampton

One of the most famous of England’s southern port cities, Southampton is known as Europe’s ‘cruise capital’ and as such, it plays host to millions of international tourists every year. A city with a proud sporting heritage, Southampton is a flagship city for the BBC Sport Relief Mile and the Southampton Sky Ride is a cycling event that often sees as many as 15,000 eager cyclists turning up annually to tackle the course. The city is also a cultural cornerstone for the region, with live music, art, theatre, comedy and dance performances commonly performed across the city in venues such as The Talking Heads, the Guildhall, the Nuffield and The Joiners.
As a port city, there is also more than enough for the maritime enthusiasts to sink their teeth into. The SeaCity Museum is a world-class day out for the whole family, with interactive displays retelling the tragic history of the Titanic, which set sail from Southampton back in 1912. The recent maritime history of the city can be further explored at the Western Docks, where you can explore The Shieldhall Steamship, which is still the largest working steam ship in Britain. There are a brace of other speciality museums and galleries based in the city centre too, so even if you have no interest in boats, there’s plenty to keep the culturally curious entertained.
More modern thrills can be found at the Westquay shopping mall, and there are plenty of contemporary restaurants and traditional pubs scattered throughout the city for those who wish to dip their toes into the nightlife.
