Coach Hire Comparison

Looking for wedding bus hire?

If your big day is on the horizon, you’ll no doubt have a long list of things to sort – and getting guests to and from your wedding venue might be one of them. Wedding coach hire helps ensure everyone arrives on time and gives them the chance to really enjoy the party, with no worries about getting home at the end of the night. Sorting transport for your guests means less stress for you, more fun for them, and gives you one less thing to worry about in the run-up to the day.

Say ‘I do’ to wedding coach hire…

Whether it’s a minibus for your bridal party or a 70-seater coach to transport everyone from your ceremony to the reception, booking a wedding bus gives you peace of mind that all the people you really care about will be there on the big day.

No worrying about booking taxis – which can be tricky in rural areas – or arguments over who’s the designated driver, choosing coach hire for a wedding means your guests can travel together and get dropped off exactly where they need to be. On time.

Coach Hire Comparison makes it all super-easy too. You won’t need to spend ages ringing round different operators, just tell us where you need the coach to go, how many people are in your party, and we’ll do the rest. We’ll send you a range of quotes from the best local independent coach companies in your area - giving you more time to tick off the other jobs on your giant wedding to-do list. Our 24/7/365 operational centre ensures we’re always on hand during the travel day if needed, meaning you can concentrate on your big day!

Wedding coach hire testimonial

I came across this comparison website only recently and was taken back at how easy and simple it was to get quotes from numerous different coach/minibus companies. I particularly liked that I didn’t have to give personal details like mobile number or even make an account until the actual booking was being made.

The booking process for the chosen company was also quick and easy with regular email alerts for every time I received a message from the company.

I’ve already recommended the website to friends and family and will definitely be using it in future.


About Coach Hire Comparison

Helping people make special memories is a huge part of what Coach Hire Comparison is about. Founded by James and Laura Stokes in 2010, the company aims to make coach and minibus hire easier to access and arrange, taking the stress out of planning big events like weddings, days out or holidays.

Proud parents of two children, two dogs and Coco – the cheeky orange mascot for CHC – James and Laura, originally ran their own coach hire company but quickly spotted an opportunity to help fellow independent operators bring in more business.

They joined forces with CMAC in 2023, who bring industry-leading ground transport expertise to the business, along with innovation, investment, and new talent, ensuring Coach Hire Comparison can reach even more people.

“Organising a wedding can be a tricky time, with so many things to consider. The last thing you want is to be worrying about how everyone’s going to get there, and get home again, which is where coach hire can really help.

“One of our favourite things about CHC is the role it can play in helping people on their big days, creating really special memories and taking some of the stress out of the organisation. We’re working on improvements to the platform all the time and look forward to helping many more people plan their special days.”

About Coach Hire Comparison

Your questions answered

The cost of coach hire for a wedding will depend on the size of your group and how far they’re travelling, as well as how many drop-offs/pick-ups you need on the way. When you book through Coach Hire Comparison you can be assured you’re getting the best deal on the market as we’ll give you quotes from at least three independent operators (usually more than five).

The price will vary depending on the size and spec of the vehicle, and how far you’re travelling, but when you use Coach Hire Comparison you’ll get at least three independent quotes – often, five or more – so you can be confident you’ve chosen the best value party bus hire for your needs.

We take quality extremely seriously. It’s one of our core values. Every operator we work with must prove they have all the right licenses and are legally compliant. We check this regularly and any businesses that don’t meet these standards will have their memberships paused until they do.

Definitely not. One of the biggest benefits of using us for your booking is that you’ll never be left dealing with things on your own. All our customers have a dedicated account manager, who’s on hand to to help should anything going wrong.

Summer is obviously peak wedding season and can be a busy time for coach operators, but because our network contains hundreds of independent coach and minibus companies, it’s highly unlikely that we won’t be able to find someone to get your party to the church on time no matter the time of year.

The rules around drinking alcohol on a coach or minibus are down to the individual operator. If you think it’s something people will want to do we’d always advise speaking to the company ahead of your journey to check their policy.

Yep! We like to make your journey as easy as possible so we can of course provide an accessible coach or mini bus should you require it. Let us know when submitting your quote that you require an accessible vehicle.
