Coach Hire for School Trips

No matter how big or small your group of students is, when leaving the classroom, it's crucial you choose the correct transport. If you're travelling for a long duration, you will need to keep the students occupied, which means you may want to look at our premium coach hire options, which come with television and audio capability. However, for coach day trips close to your school, our standard, more affordable bus transportation may be suitable. We can transport up to 100 students per vehicle.

Whether you're a primary school or a university, we will deliver safe and reliable coach hire.

Bespoke Deals for School Trips

At CoachScanner, we have an entire team that specialises in coach hire for school trips and works with schools to ensure the bus transportation you choose is what you need and has the facilities to cater to every child, including those with special needs. We will work one-to-one with your school's representative and offer advice and help you organise your trip schedule, so you have plenty of time at your desired location. We can even liaise with the venue you're visiting regarding your transport.

All our school transportation and bus hire packages are one-off. For a quote, please contact us.

School Coach Hire Services

As one of the largest coach networks in the UK, over the years at CoachScanner, we have worked with many nurseries, schools, colleges and universities, delivering exceptional minibus and coach hire services. Every week, a fleet of our coaches embark on school trips to some of the UK's most exciting destinations for schools, including London, Stonehenge, Hadrian's Wall, Kingswood, and many more.

How It Works

On the day of your trip, your driver will arrive up to 30 minutes before your scheduled departure time, allowing you plenty of time to get your students on the minibus or coach. Once everyone's on board, you’ll set off. Depending on the length of your journey, we may schedule at least one toilet break along the way, but rarely for the shorter trip’s as it can significantly increase the total travel time.

When you arrive at your destination, all students will disembark from the vehicle, although they may be allowed to leave their coats, bags and lunchboxes on board, depending on your schedule.

If you're travelling somewhere with a large eating area, such as a national park, you can arrange for students to collect their belongings and lunch from the coach and enjoy a bite to eat outside.

Throughout your school trip, your driver will park the coach in a specified bay and stay in the vehicle unless otherwise stated, which means you can rest assured your belongings are secure at all times.

For weekend trips where you don’t require transport for the duration, your driver will leave and return to your location at your desired pickup time – this ensures you're not paying for overtime, too.

At the end of your trip, your bus driver will take you back to your pickup address via the quickest route.

Even though we professionally clean all our vehicles after each trip, at the end of your journey, your drive will ask you to take all your rubbish away with you or dispose of it in the bins provided.

Our Vehicle Facilities

We offer school trip coach hire with driver included for up to 97 passengers per vehicle. You can also book a fleet of buses with us to transport larger groups at once.

To keep your students occupied, we have a variety of coaches that come with onboard technology, such as televisions, headphone jacks, and surrounding audio capability. These facilities mean that you can put on a film and sit back and relax when travelling to and from your destination.

Our Minibus Hire Services

As well as offering full-service school coach hire, we offer school minibus hire across the UK.

Our school bus hire is an affordable solution for transporting groups of 6-15. Our vehicles are suitable for students of all ages and come with a variety of onboard facilities. Our premium minibuses include televisions, audio capability, and air-conditioning, whereas our standard coaches are comfortable but lack the entertainment your students may need for longer journeys – be mindful when booking.

If you have a large group, consider our school coach hire services. Otherwise, request a quote.

School Transport for Children with Special Needs

One of the great things about school trips is that every student can get involved regardless of ability.

At CoachScanner, most of our vehicles incorporate the facilities necessary to transport children with special needs, such as ramps and lifting devices, and many coaches have seats for those with wheelchairs. If you require a vehicle with additional equipment storage, we have those, too.

All our drivers are fully trained and equipped to work with children and adults with special needs.

For questions about specific special needs requirements or to book school bus hire, please contact us.
