7 reasons corporate coach hire is the smartest way to travel 


With UK inflation at its highest rate for a decade and rising, businesses across the nation are looking for ways to manage their costs more effectively, without compromising on service quality and affecting sustainability targets. Here are seven reasons why corporate coach hire is the smartest way to travel. 

Although energy bills are increasing most sharply, rising prices are occurring across the board. The cost-of-living crisis is forcing people to shop around for the best deals and businesses to find ways to remain competitive and profitable.  

In addition, companies face enormous pressure to tackle climate change and take meaningful actions to reduce their carbon emissions and waste. Amidst all this, business owners must also keep staff motivated to retain and attract talent to deliver a great customer experience and keep clients happy. 


“In the current economic climate, businesses are under a lot of pressure to effectively manage their costs and become more sustainable. Therefore, they are looking for cost-effective solutions to help them reduce overheads, sustain a thriving culture, and address the environmental crisis.” 
– John Johnson, Commercial Director, Johnsons Quality Coach Travel 


A corporate coach hire service is a fantastic way to facilitate safe and comfortable travel. Whether you need to transport your staff for corporate events, company away days, awards ceremonies or lifts to and from airports, travelling by coach is the smartest solution. You can also book coach holidays to treat your clients to a day out, weekend away or tour across the UK or Europe. 

Coach operators can secure some of the best deals for accommodation, theatre tickets and visitor attractions, enabling you to offer your employees or corporate clients hassle-free travel and great days out at very cost-effective prices.  

Moreover, it saves people from having to use their own vehicles, significantly reducing company expense claims and your carbon footprint.  

Hiring the right coach operator will also remove all the associated hassle of organising the planning of a company trip, providing you with an enjoyable and memorable experience instead.  


7 great reasons to travel by coach for business 


Businesses are rapidly discovering the many benefits of travelling by coach. So, it’s no surprise that it’s increasingly becoming the preferred transport method for corporate travel.  


Here are seven reasons why travelling by coach is so appealing: 


1. Meet your sustainability targets 

A corporate coach hire service can help your firm reduce CO2 emissions. On average, each coach can remove around 30 cars from the road. To put this in perspective, 56% of carbon dioxide emissions come from cars and taxis, and just 3% of carbon emissions come from coaches and buses. So, every time you travel by coach, you lower your carbon footprint, contributing to a greener planet.  


2. Make the journey safer for everyone 

At Johnsons, safety and comfort for all passengers come first. According to government safety statistics, coach travel is seven times safer than car travel. We have invested heavily in our coach fleet and on-site maintenance team to ensure all vehicles are always running in best condition. During journeys, we satellite track, check the vehicles, and have a Duty Manager and a Duty Mechanic on call 24/7 to help in case of a breakdown. Moreover, all our drivers hold a CPC license and are trained to deliver superior customer service. 


3. Save time and money with a tailored service 

Whatever the occasion, route, or number of passengers, our made-to-measure service will plan your trip from A to B, helping you save time and money on planning and business expenses. We have experience coordinating travel for airport transfers and national and international trips. Our modern fleet of coaches caters to every executive hire need — from high specification minibuses to seat 6, up to large executive coaches for 63 passengers. In addition, there are no booking restrictions on the number of days; book us for as long or as little as you need. 


4. Enjoy less hassle and more reliability  

The planning of organising a business trip can be stressful, not only for the organiser but also for the attendees. When hiring a Johnson’s coach, you won’t have to worry about a thing. As a family business, we put a great deal of care into everything we do. Our friendly team will handle all the aspects of your trip, making sure everything runs on schedule.  


5. Receive an experience like no other 

Giving you an excellent end-to-end service is always our top priority. Nowadays, travelling by coach is synonymous with clean, spacious, energy-efficient, and comfortable. With Johnson coaches, we can expect luxury at every level. Our vehicles offer the ultimate travel experience, with plenty of legroom, onboard toilets, air-con, tinted double-glazed windows and a selection of hot and cold drinks. 


6. Improve engagement and wellbeing 

Travelling by coach can help team building and promote wellbeing. A coach trip can help your team or clients bond from start to finish, giving them more time to catch up, get to know each other, relax, and enjoy each other's company while reducing travel worries.  


7. Guarantee superior quality 

Johnsons Coaches has a strong commitment to delivering outstanding service. Thus, every corporate coach hire comes with four guarantees to ensure the best possible customer experience — a top quality driver, a top quality coach, a top quality journey, and top quality support for your coach hire. 


Hiring a corporate coach service offers safe, reliable and environmentally friendly transport for businesses. When choosing an executive coach operator, there are a few things you should consider: 


  •  Credibility – make sure it’s a trusted company and holds the relevant accreditations to guarantee your safety. 

  • Fleet – the age and quality of the vehicles matter. Always choose a provider who offers a modern coach fleet kept to its best condition. 

  • Friendliness and expertise – whether it’s a short or long journey, you want to travel with a coach crew who makes you feel welcome. Besides, it’s crucial that the coach drivers hold the relevant qualifications and training to be in the safest hands.  


“We hired Johnsons to provide the entire transport operations for the European Wheelchair Basketball Championships in Worcester. This included airport pick-ups for teams and individuals as well as the shuttle service to and from the accommodation and the sports arena. The service provided throughout the event was nothing short of excellent — the buses ran on time, and the drivers were always very friendly and well-presented. In addition, working with the Johnsons' team (John, Sarah, Jonathan and Tony) was a real pleasure as their positive, "can-do" attitude made our job as event organisers much easier. I would recommend Johnsons to any event organisation looking for a reliable transport company and wouldn't hesitate to hire them again."
