Schools & Colleges Coach Hire

Selwyns Coach Hire has been providing coach hire for schools, colleges and universities in the North West for over 40 years.

Our experience has given us an in-depth knowledge of the particular challenges involved in providing a professional service to the academic community.

We consider that this experience is essential to understanding the special care necessary for the responsible task of the transportation of children and young people. We will ensure that your travel plans are implemented effectively and safely and with complete reliability.

We offer our school coach hire services for travel all over the UK and abroad. To help make the task of organising your journey easier and complying with regulations, we can provide you with risk assessment templates.

Passenger safety comes first

Passenger safety is at the forefront of our private hire service for schools and colleges. We operate using only our own modern, comfortable coaches, all of which are fitted with seatbelts as standard. All vehicles comply with the highest safety standards and our drivers are DBS checked.

We are proud to have BUSK Benchmark, which is the first and only independent star rating for the mini bus and coach industry based on safety and legal compliance.

Other companies may appear to be cheaper, but you may find they are running buses, which, by law, do not have to have seatbelts fitted. With Selwyns Coach Hire , there is no compromise with regard to the safety of your students!

To further ensure your safety, all vehicle movements are monitored with satellite tracking – you can take advantage of our “Where’s My Coach?” service to be able to see exactly where your vehicle is – particularly useful to keep parents up to date on the way home. Our 24/7 breakdown service ensures that should there be any problems, disruption to your hire is kept to a minimum.

Our fleet of top quality coaches is driven by friendly uniformed staff who are trained to the highest customer service standards. Selwyns coaches range in size between 29 and 57 seats. We also have 70 & 80 seater double deckers.
