Coach Hire Comparison

Get the festivities started with Christmas party bus hire

‘Tis the season for a great big party. But if you’ve been tasked with planning one, you’ll already know how tricky that can be, especially if you’ve got to get a large group of people to a particular venue. Christmas party bus hire needn’t be a headache though. With Coach Hire Comparison you can let us do the hard work and concentrate on planning all the exciting stuff – like what you’re going to wear, and how many turkey dinners you can realistically eat in one month.

Fuss-free Christmas coach hire

When you’ve finally found the perfect venue to keep all the members of your group happy, the last thing you want is to be stressing about how you’re going to get there. We all know the to-do lists are off the scale in December – so save yourself the time and hassle involved in ringing round loads of minibus and coach hire companies and let us bring the quotes to you instead.

Simply supply us with a few brief details about your trip and we’ll compare prices, availability and the types of vehicles available, and send all the options directly to your inbox - leaving you free to worry about who’s coming for Christmas dinner and what on earth you’re going to buy to keep Auntie Maureen happy.

Baby, it's cold outside

Nothing’s guaranteed to put a dampener on the end of your night like standing in a taxi queue in the freezing cold. Choosing party bus hire means you know exactly when and where you’re getting picked up, and you’ll arrive at the venue at the same time as everyone else. The fun starts the minute you board the bus, giving you precious extra party time!

Whether you’re celebrating with friends or heading out with colleagues, we’ll match you with the right transport for your group. It couldn’t be easier.

A personalised dashboard to see everything at a glance

No-one’s got time to be spending hours ringing round coach and bus hire companies, and keeping track of what they’ve all said, especially at this time of year.

Coach Hire Comparison offers a personalised, secure online dashboard, which shows you all the quotes you’ve received and the contact details of each coach operator. All in one handy place.

Payment protection for online bookings

When you book with us online, you’re automatically protected. We’re so confident in the trustworthiness of our party coach hire providers that, if for any reason yours doesn’t arrive, we’ll happily refund your payment in full – and that’s a promise!

The biggest selection of vehicles

Whether you need a minibus for a select group of friends heading out for a fancy festive meal, or you’re taking your whole department out for the mother of all knees-ups, our operators have a range of vehicles to suit.

Maybe you want mood lighting and luxury leather seats to get you in the party mood from the very start of the night? Or perhaps you’d prefer a cheaper option for a short journey to the other side of town? From 8-seater minibuses to 70 seat road cruisers, we have options for every budget.

About Coach Hire Comparison

Coach Hire Comparison was founded by James and Laura Stokes in 2010, and family values are at the heart of everything they do.

Parents of two children, two dogs and Coco – the cheeky orange mascot for CHC – the couple’s goal is to make coach and minibus hire as accessible and affordable as possible for everyone.

Originally running their own coach hire company, they soon spotted an opportunity to help promote the work of other independent operators.

In 2023 they were joined on their journey by CMAC, who bring industry-leading ground transport expertise to the company, along with innovation, investment, and new talent, helping Coach Hire Comparison reach an even larger audience.

“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. Be it Christmas party coach hire or getting friends and family to the airport for a holiday of a lifetime, we love being part of people’s special memories.”

Definitely. Quality is one of our core values, as is regulatory compliance. All our operators must prove they are legally compliant and have all the necessary licenses. We check this regularly and any operators that can’t do this will have their memberships paused.

No! The great thing about booking through Coach Hire Comparison is that you always have someone to contact in the event of something going wrong. Everyone who makes a booking through us has their own dedicated account manager.

Passengers should not consume any alcoholic drinks onboard the vehicle unless otherwise agreed with Coach Hire Comparison. Under no circumstances will the Company allow for alcohol to be consumed during travel to football matches.

Yes of course! We can provide accessible coaches and minibuses for wheelchair users and those with mobility devices. Please tell us at the quote stage if you require an accessible coach.
