Putting something back into the community

We serve not only the community of Preston and Lancashire, but we also serve the coach hire industry too, aiming to train drivers and aid in the recruitment of drivers into the industry where it is facing shortages of staff. We provide coach hire in Preston for clubs, schools, family groups and other outings, helping the local community enjoy days out for less.

Approved minibus hire services

We are approved by the Traffic Commissioner of the North West to operate vehicles with more than 9 seats, hence we hold a Standard International Operator's Licence. We have ambitions plans to grow and become well established and we take regulatory compliance very seriously. All our drivers hold the relevant entitlement on their licence plus all our vehicles go through vigorous maintenance checks to comply with passenger safety regulations.



Tours of the UK and Europe

We provide tours both from Preston to locations across the UK, and also from London, enabling tourists from the UK and beyond to enjoy parts of England they wouldn't otherwise see. We provide coach hire in Preston to travel agents and sightseers and groups, touring the beautiful countryside of North West England and beyond.



We organise tours to the following locations


scenic view over Lancashire


Setting off from either Preston or London, we will tour the beautiful scenery of Lancashire, with locations such as Lancaster Castle, Morecambe Bay, the Pennines, Pendle Hill, Ribble Valley, and Beacon Fell, to wonder over.

There are so many places to visit in Scotland. From the spectacular Cairngorms, to the cultural highlights of Edinburgh we can organise a coach trip or a minibus tour for your party. A coach trip is one of the best ways to experience Scotland, where there are so many diverse places to enjoy, and you are not tied down to one location.

Both the Dales and the Moors are in easy reach of our coach tours. The Dales provide beautiful rolling hills, scenic stone architecture, and idyllic villages, which have featured in many well-known television shows.

You can organise a day trip to London with our help. The trip is worth it for the museums, the culture, the architecture, and the pageantry alone. Then again, you may be visiting London for a concert, sporting fixture, or family event. Whatever you want to see, we will help you.
