School Coach and Minibus Hire

Whether you’re looking for coaches or minibus to transport your students to and from school daily or coach hire for a school trip, we can help. 

Coach and Minibus Hire for School Trips 

A day outside the classroom is the perfect way to teach students lots of different life skills while having fun. We understand that education isn’t just classroom-based and that safe school travel is crucial. Visiting educational establishments, and giving children end of term incentives, such as a Christmas pantomime or visit to a theme park, can encourage their learning. You may be looking for minibus hire for team sports away days or to transport students to swimming lessons - whatever your needs, we can help!

Why choose coach hire comparison for school trips and travel?

We understand that you’re looking for a safe and reliable coach and minibus supplier for your students and staff.

All of our suppliers are safety-checked and follow the below criteria:

  • All our suppliers have been checked thoroughly to ensure they have the appropriate licenses needed.
  • All vehicles come with seatbelts that fit safety requirements.
  • Our operators have years of experience and an exemplary safety record.
  • Coach drivers will work around your schedule and needs. We can create pick up and drop off times to suit the school’s timetable.
  • You can find out information about individual operators on our website.
  • You will also find a series of reviews below from educational establishments that have previously used our service.

We also understand however that taking 30+ children on a day out from school can impose various challenges. Our coach hire comparison tool assesses various transport options to suit your needs, so not only do we accommodate for your passenger count, we take into consideration vehicle type, facilities and length of the journey. For example, if your journey was going to take several hours, we understand that the use of motorway services is not ideal and so we’d suggest coaches with toilet facilities. Likewise, if you wanted transport to accommodate your sports team, we might suggest a smaller vehicle like a minibus with extra baggage space.
