"From the moment I contacted Tim at short notice on Monday, he was nothing but courteous and professional. He quickly confirmed our transport and details with me on the day. Pickup was prompt on Wednesday night, the coach was exactly as advertised and perfect for our journey from Gatwick to Bournemouth - impeccably presented. The boys in particular enjoyed the USB charging ports, by the time we arrived it was time to start charging phones. Small details like the bottled water in the refrigerator make a huge difference when travelling and they were very welcomed. Tim himself was fantastic, pleasant and outgoing. It's refreshing to see an owner/operator take pride not only in the appearance of his fleet but how he presents himself. Our return journey on Sunday was equally as professional and our driver, Mike, was just as professional, arriving on time and even accommodating a short stop for lunch on the way. I highly recommend Heathside Travel and will be using them again should we return."

"I booked Heathside travel on behalf of my daughters dance school, to take a group of very excited children and accompanying adults to a dance exhibition at London Excel. Mike arrived promptly and was very friendly. The coach was very clean and comfortable and the inbuilt phone chargers were a bonus. Everyone was very complimentary about the coach. Thank you Heathside Travel. I will definately be recommending your company to others."

"Excellent service and very professional drivers, in particular Mike was superb. He gave an introductory safety speech and professionally welcomed us all on-board. He was chatty and friendly and happy to stop for a comfort break. He carefully loaded everyones' luggage into the coac and off at the other end.. Very comfortable and smart, clean mini coach. Overall I would highly recommend and would definitely use again if the need arises. Thanks very much to Tim for arranging the two journeys with ease and at a good price. Great value for money."
