About Coach Hire Comparison

Making memories is a core part of what Coach Hire Comparison is all about. Founded by James and Laura Stokes, the company has helped thousands of people plan amazing trips and days out since 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, soon spotted an opportunity to help other operators bring in more business.

Coach Hire Comparison was formed to champion independent coach travel, making access to it as easy as possible, and encouraging people to choose it as their preferred form of transport.

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

“One of the best things about CHC is the role we get to play in helping people create really special memories. Stag and hen dos are such an important life milestone and we’re here to help take some of the stress out of it for organisers. We’re working on improvements to the platform all the time and look forward to helping many more people plan their special trips.”
