When first deciding to hire a coach, many people are overwhelmed by the amount of choice
that’s available on the market. From compact minibuses and luxury coaches to spacious double
decker buses, there are so many vehicles to choose from that it can be difficult to know where
to start. To help you in the right direction, here’s our guide to selecting the right vehicle to suit
The first step - and the easiest - is to work out how many people you need your coach to seat.
But even though this is simple on some occasions, on others - such as weddings and school
trips - you might have to take into account potential last minute cancellations or additions. As a
rule of thumb, we recommend booking more seats than you need rather than less. If you end up
slightly under capacity, any unnecessary cost will be kept to a bare minimum. However, if you
don’t have enough seats and have to book additional transport to cater for extra passengers,
you could end up paying over the odds.
Once you know how many people you have in your party, you can narrow your options down.
But, depending on numbers, you might still find yourself with a range of choices available. So,
the next step is to think about what factors are the most important to you and your journey. For
example, is budget a primary consideration? Or are you happy to pay a little extra to travel in
If you choose a basic coach hire package, you won’t be compromising on safety or quality, and
you and your party will be able to travel from A to B for a bargain price. On the other hand, if you
go for a luxury vehicle, you’ll enjoy benefits like flat screen TVs, superior sound systems and
onboard refreshments - often for a surprisingly minimal extra cost.
Whatever your preference, Anything for Hire will round up all the available options on your
behalf, making it easy for you to choose the right coach for any occasion.
