Coco excited
Horse racing coach hire testimonial

I found it very quick and straightforward to get quotes and then book the coach I needed through CHC. They answered my queries promptly, and overall I found their service to be good and reliable.

I was sent details of our driver a couple of days before the trip, and both the drivers we had were courteous and helpful. The coach was clean and comfortable. A good experience.

About Coach Hire Comparison

Founded by James and Laura Stokes in 2010, fun times and memory-making are at the heart of Coach Hire Comparison.

The couple, who are proud parents of two children, two dogs and Coco- the cheeky orange mascot for CHC – wanted to make coach and minibus travel more affordable and accessible for people when planning big trips, days out or holidays.

Originally running their own coach hire company, they soon spotted an opportunity to help other operators bring in more business.

In 2023 they joined forces with CMAC who, along with innovation, investment, and new talent, bring industry-leading ground transport expertise to the business.

“For us, one of the best things about CHC is the role it plays in creating special days out for so many people. Whether it’s a day at Cheltenham racecourse or a trip to your favourite festival with friends, we aim to take as much stress as possible out of the planning. We’re working on improvements to the platform all the time and hope we can help many more people plan their special trips.”
