Coach Hire Comparison’s quick three-step process is designed to make airport coach hire as easy and as stress-free as possible.

Let us know where you're going

To get started, all you need to do is fill in a quick form with your journey information, including the date and time of departure, destination, and group size. We’ll then share your request with our trusted community of coach and minibus operators so they can prepare the best quote for your airport trip.

Put your feet up while you wait for your quotes

Or get browsing online for your perfect holiday outfits… You’ll receive a selection of quotes for your airport minibus transfers or coach hire from at least three of our independent partners, usually within 24 hours. Keep in mind that all of our independent suppliers will send their quotes separately, so some will come back more quickly than others.

Time to make your choice of coach or minibus

Our personalised dashboard makes it easy to see all of your airport coach hire options in one place. You’ll be able to pick your vehicle of choice, based on price and amenities. Want to get the party started in style with fancy leather seats and mood lighting? Or prefer something simpler for your early morning trip? You choose.

Let us take away your holiday headaches and help you create great memories from the off. It couldn’t be easier.

Personalised dashboard for ease

When you’ve already got a massive to-do list to get through before you can clock off the last thing you need is having to remember which airport minibus operators you’ve called, and what they’ve said. Coach Hire Comparison offers a personalised, secure online dashboard for every user, which shows every booking you make and the contact details of each coach operator.

No more frantic phone calls in any bit of spare time you can find, or hurried notes on scrappy bits of paper. Just all the information you need in one handy place.

When you book with us online you’ll automatically be protected. We’re confident in the reliability of our team of trusted airport coach hire providers but, if for any reason yours doesn’t arrive, we’ll happily refund your payment in full - that’s a promise!

The biggest selection of vehicles

Whether it’s a special holiday with the girls for a milestone birthday, a university reunion, a stag or hen do, or a trip with extended family, we know everyone’s coach and minibus requirements are different. Our providers offer everything from 8-seater minibuses to 70 seat road cruisers, and there are options for all budgets. Whether you want a touch of luxury from the outset or prefer to keep it simple and have more money to spend on sampling the local delicacies, we’ll give you a choice of airport transfer options tailored just for you.

The process for sorting our travel for an airport run was made so easy using coach hire comparison. Got plenty of quotes in a timely manner and was able to source a local company to me. Highly recommend and I have already used them again!

About Coach Hire Comparison

Family values are at the heart of Coach Hire Comparison, which was founded by James and Laura Stokes in 2010. Proud parents of two children, two dogs and Coco – the cheeky orange mascot for CHC – the couple, who originally ran their own coach hire company, spotted an opportunity to help other like-minded business owners.

Championing independent coach travel and making it as easy as possible for people to choose it as their preferred form of travel has been the driving force behind the company from day one. In 2023 they were joined on their journey by CMAC, who bring industry-leading ground transport expertise to the company, along with investment, innovation, and new talent, helping Coach Hire Comparison reach even more people.

“Our belief in the power of CHC grows stronger every day. We’re working on improvements to the platform all the time, enabling new customers to get to where they want to go every week, whether that’s minibus airport transfers for families getting to the airport for the holiday of a lifetime or groups of friends coming together for a party weekend. We love being part of people’s special memories.”
