Awesome experience

Daniel Eteru

From our first contact with you, it was a breeze! Communication was always on point and the reassurance of pick up and drop-offs were looked over numerous times to ensure all was correct. The payment was made with no issues at all. 2 days before the pick-ups, I got a call from Lin the driver who was to be our point of contact on the day. The day arrived, Lin and the other drivers arrived on time, and again Lin was making sure everything was ok and we had an understanding of the route. Lin was AMAZING! Friendly, kind, accomodating and very professional. Everything went to plan and those that were on the bus could not get over how down to earth the drivers were and even allowing the passengers to connect to the Bluetooth to play their own music! I believe on the other bus they had karaoke!!! Overall an amazing experience from start to finish and will definitely use them again for our other Events. Thank you guys for the awesome experience!

Faultless process

Melissa Tingle

We booked a minibus for Thurs 16 September to take our family group of 11 to our sons' wedding in Currumbin Valley. Masuo was our driver, faultless process! Cannot speak highly enough of the service we received. Great price, punctual arrival, and courteous.  Would highly recommend the service to anyone.

All positive

Tom & Becky

The feedback has been all positive from our end. The guests loved the ‘Tom and Becky Wedding’ digital sign at the start of the day. The bus was very modern and the driver(s) courteous. Thanks to the driver later that night who waited for the last people to finish their drinks and departed a little later than expected. Happy to recommend for future functions.

Wonderful experience

I would like to confirm that I had a positive experience working with Coach Hire. From the first contact right to the final drop-off my whole team was well taken care of. The Coach Hire team was very prompt with communication throughout the quoting process. They provided all the needed information to help me make my decision and ensure my travelling party was catered for. They were also helpful when I needed to make changes to my quote before the departure date. On the day, the driver Christine was very helpful and professional. She arrived on time, helped us get to our destinations on time, and was available for any communication between trips. The ride was also smooth as she navigated traffic smoothly during peak times. Thanks again for your service; we had a wonderful experience.

Fantastic service

Krystal De Conte

Smooth sailing

Deidre Bergen

Everything was smooth sailing from the booking process to the drop-off. Your driver was on time & waiting for us at Crown and the drop–off, even at the peak time of 5:00 pm in the city was easy.

Important Qualities Every Coach Driver Must Have

A good coach company only employs the best drivers. And Bus Hire Compare ensure that all our affiliate companies vet their drivers in every aspect concerning transporting groups of passengers.

The driver at the wheel is so important to a transport company for many reasons, and not least because he is the public face of the company. The driver represents what the coach company stands for and is representative of the whole operation.

So what are the important qualities that every good coach driver must have? We have listed below some of the most important attributes any good coach driver must have.

Important Qualities Every Coach Driver Must Have


Above all, the driver of a bus or coach should be personable and approachable. Passengers have to feel confident with the person at the wheel and if they feel they can approach the driver with concerns and questions they will be far more likely to sit back and enjoy the trip.

Even before a passenger takes their seat the driver should be welcoming them on board and explaining the day in terms of route and times etc. As always a friendly smile goes a long way to create the right impression and ambiance.


Above all, the driver is the captain of his own ship and must show who is in control at all times. Every coach charter brings a fresh new challenge. The mix of passengers will be totally different and a driver has to adapt.

The top drivers are those who are natural born leaders, and they are there first and foremost to look after the safety of the passengers and the vehicle.

Act Calm and Collected

Each excursion throws up its own unique difficulties and truly capable drivers can handle anything that gets thrown at them in a calm and confident manner.

Some of the problems that can crop up on a coach charter are:

  • Poor weather conditions
  • Bad driving
  • Poor traffic conditions
  • Road closures
  • Problems with the vehicle
  • Problems with passengers
  • Road rage


Driving a bus full of people is not your average job and to be successful a driver needs to have dedication to who they are working for and the job that they are doing. With this quality it not only makes them better drivers but will make their work more rewarding.

Most of us spend a third of our lives working, so you may as well be happy and contented at what you do.


All good drivers are highly respectful of their colleagues and who they work for. This attitude rubs off on how they treat their passengers. It may seem to many that a driver is a lone wolf but this is often not so. Many drivers work for a large transport company and form part of an effective team.
