Safety is a top priority for our coach hire on the South coast and is something we pride ourselves on, so much so that we have won various safety-based accolades. We understand that you need to feel 100% at ease during every step of your coach trip. This is something we ensure in part by training our drivers to the highest possible safety standards.
Our vehicles, too, undergo rigorous safety checks, including an extensive preventative maintenance program every 35 days or less. This is carried out by our award-winning in-house engineers for ease of the process and guaranteed results. We also offer the latest in onboard technology, including hands-free communication and real-time satellite tracking. As if that weren’t enough to put you at ease, we will provide 24-hour breakdown coverage should the worst happen while you’re on the road.

Accessibility and onboard safety

Note, too, that our drivers are not able to offer specialist disability services including –
