19 Seater Minibus and Driver Hire

We’re delighted to introduce our latest upgrade, a lovely 19 seater (plus our driver) minicoach.

This vehicle is perfect for larger groups and for those who like a bit of space. Each passenger has their own reading light and air vents and the large windows make for great views from the vehicle.

Our Luxury Minibus is on its way

We’re rather excited about our new arrival this week…a lovely 16 seater luxury minibus is on her way. Boasting comfy reclining leather seating, air conditioning (I know, I know, today is hardly the day to boast about a/c) and a super huge boot!

With a Euro V engine, there a substantially reduced number of nasty greenhouse gases, particularly nitrous oxide released out the tail pipe. And with her XL size passenger comfort will be top notch.  We cannot wait to pull up at Ascot in this!

A tip when organising group travel is to allow for an extra 15 minutes as there are always some stragglers, especially with larger groups! And from a safety perspective, always book any drop offs in advance so that those who are a little worse for wear do not have to navigate their way home.
