Recently used this coach service for an airport transfer and I must say the experience was quite solid. Jayden Masters helped streamline the booking process, which was a breeze. The coach arrived on time, which is always a relief when catching a flight. The driver was professional and navigated through traffic efficiently. The coach itself was clean and comfortable, making the ride smooth. The price point felt right for the level of service provided. Would recommend for hassle-free airport transportation.

I had the pleasure of booking a coach for our school\\'s Sports Day with Neil Dempsey, and it couldn\\'t have gone smoother. The booking process was hassle-free, and the driver was professional, punctual, and incredibly friendly, making the journey as enjoyable as the event itself. However, while the overall experience was top-notch, I found the cost slightly on the higher side. Despite that, the quality service received was undeniable, and I\\'d consider them again for future school trips.

Chris Burt\\'s attentiveness in fitting our budget, coupled with their proactive approach in ironing out details, made the booking process seamless. The driver\\'s foresight regarding pickup logistics demonstrated their commitment to a smooth experience. While price points can always be more competitive, the value gained from stress-free transport coordination is indisputable.

I recently used this coach

Lloyd Hutchison

I recently used this coach service for a sporting event and I have to say, my overall experience was excellent. Booking our trip was a breeze, thanks to Kyle Munford who was an absolute pleasure to work with; efficient and organized, making the process smooth from start to finish. The value for money was exceptional, offering a premium service that didn\\'t break the bank. The coach was on time, which is something I deeply appreciate. However, there was a slight hiccup during the journey. The driver seemed to have a bit of confusion about the appropriate drop-off point for the students. Despite the staff\\'s attempts to direct him, there was a little resistance, which was concerning. Thankfully, it was resolved without any major issue. Despite this, I wouldn\\'t hesitate to recommend their services and will definitely be using them again for future events. The company clearly strives for excellence, and it shows in their commitment to customer satisfaction.

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.
