Football coach hire in three easy steps

Deciding to rent a minibus can make travelling to a football match a much more fun experience, and our quick three-step process makes it super simple to find exactly what you need.

Tell us where you want to go

Complete the short form on our website and let us know where you’re travelling to and with how many people. It will also give you the option to add extra information like additional pick-ups and drop-offs. We’ll then take your request and send it to our network of trusted minibus and coach operators who’ll prepare their best quotes for you.

Sit back and relax while you wait

You’ll receive a range of quotes from at least three of our independent coach hire companies within around 24 hours, meaning you can get on with your life in the meantime. No hanging on the phone or worrying about missing a call.

Our operators will send their quotes directly to your inbox. Bear in mind some will arrive more quickly than others as they’re all coming from different companies.

Decide on your preferred coach or minibus

When you create an account with us, you’ll get access to a personalised dashboard which makes it easy to see all your options in one place.

Compare by price, size and vehicle spec and, once you’ve found the right one for your group, place your booking through Coach Hire Comparison

Kick off the fun early with sporting events coach hire

Rent a minibus and you get to make the most of match day from the start. No more getting frustrated in queues of traffic, or stressing about finding the quickest routes, just sit back and relax while your driver does the hard work.

And, unlike train travel, you won’t need to worry about last minute strikes or overcrowded carriages. You’ll be guaranteed a seat and a dedicated pick-up time for you and your group. With Coach Hire Comparison you can get the gang together and hit the road without worrying. And the process is easy.

A personalised dashboard to keep all your quotes in one handy place

In the run-up to the big game the last thing you want to be doing is having to keep track of which operators you’ve called and all the different options available. Our handy personalised dashboard saves the stress of having different scraps of paper everywhere by bringing together all the details you need – vehicle spec, prices and contacts for each operator.

An online booking guarantee

Every online booking made with us comes with the guarantee that, should your coach or minibus fail to turn up, you’ll receive a full refund. We only use the most trusted operators in our network, so we’re confident this won’t happen, but we want you to feel confident that you’re protected just in case.

The widest selection of reliable, affordable vehicles

Fancy travelling to that semi-final in style? Or just looking for a budget option to get you to your team’s next away match? Our wide-ranging network of operators has got you covered. From 70-seater cruisers with luxury leather seats and mood lighting, to six seater minibuses, we’ll have the perfect coach hire solution for you.

About Coach Hire Comparison

James and Laura Stokes created Coach Hire Comparison in 2010 in a bid to make coach and minibus travel more affordable and accessible for people when planning big trips, 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 soon spotted an opportunity to help other operators boost their businesses too.

In 2023 they 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 special memories, and taking some of the stress out of the organising them. We’re big football fans so we know how challenging it can be to get to games sometimes. “We’re always working on improvements to the platform and love that it can help fellow fans get to their important games on time.”
