Coach Hire

The Momentum Coach and Bus Hire network offers coach and bus rental in London and over 158 other towns and cities in the UK – from luxury coach rental in London to an Airport Transfer Coach Hire in Scotland. We have a full spectrum of clients from major Private Sector Corporates to Schools and the Public Sector. Coach and Bus hire vehicles range from minibus hire through to Executive coaches and up to 75 seat double deckers.

You can hire a coach or bus right now using our online tool however we recommend that for more complex bookings, involving events or multiple coaches, that you call the Momentum Coach Hire Bookings Team to organise your coach rental. We accept all major credit cards. For invoice and billing services one of our agents would be pleased to help. All coach and bus quotes are generated taking into account time, mileage and season but exclude out of pocket expenses and second driver supplements, if unsure give us a call and our agents will be happy to advise how to avoid/minimise any incremental costs and out of pocket expenses where possible when booking a coach.

At Momentum Coach Hire we are taking initiatives for transparency and now publish exactly what you think of us – real time – everyday. All our bus and coach hire customers are asked to leave feedback on their coach rental experience. You can see the latest here: Momentum Coach Hire Reviews

The Momentum Coach and Bus Hire network takes compliance (operator’s license and vehicle insurance, CRB checks and public liability) very seriously. Momentum and our customers understand that coach and bus hire – like all transport and logistics – can be late due to a number of reasons (previous customers overrun, mechanical problems, traffic, accidents, driver illness etc). We recommend all customers have appropriate contingency in their plans (see here) and are aware of our customer services policy in the case of such problems.

Momentum Coach Hire are the ‘Coach Operator of the Year’. Merlin Group – operator of Thorpe Park, Alton Towers and many other UK attractions – has awarded Momentum the high profile coach operator of the year award for all the bus and coach hire jobs we have done with them. Two members of the Momentum team were on hand to pick up the award in December and we hope to continue to have a great working relationship with Merlin in the future.

Luxury Coach Hire

Luxury Coach HireLuxury Coaches, is very much about clarifying what you are getting. The coach should not be any more than 5 year old – or it has been fully refurbished. Availability can be limited on these coaches and you should clarify what is included on each vehicle. This can range from tables, fridges, drinks/catering facilities, reclining seats, entertainment and hostess service. See our Luxury Coach Hire page for more information.

We have luxury team coach hire – which are vehicles which are used for professional football teams. We also have specialist luxury coach hire – for weddings and corporate – which are more ‘vintage’ in style.

Executive Coach Hire

Executive Coach HireFor an Executive Coach, realistically the vehicle should have aircon and all the larger vehicles (49 seat plus) should have on board toilet facilities. Some basic on board entertainment facilities may be available. See our Executive Coach Hire page for more information. See also our page on Corporate Event Transport

NB: These vehicles are mid range specification – for luxury coach hire click here.

Disabled Access Coach Hire

Luxury Coach HireThe majority of disabled access vehicles for groups are minibuses, however it is possible to find full size coaches that are fully accessible. These coaches are ideal for large groups containing members in wheelchairs. There is no standard capacity for accessible coaches for coach hire however as a general rule, every wheelchair is equivalent to two seats i.e. 42 seats with one wheelchair, 40 seats with two. See our Disabled Access Coach Hire page for more information.

Budget Coach Hire

Budget Coach HireFor a Standard Coach, realistically this bus has probably been used on school runs and your expectations should be for nothing more than a roadworthy properly insured vehicle. This vehicle is very unlikely to have on board toilet, aircon, or on board entertainment. At Momentum we believe due to the lack of toilets these vehicles should only be used for short distance trips (less than 70 miles). See our Standard Coach Hire page for more information.

Corporate Coach Hire

Corporate Coach HireMomentum has delivered Coaches for a range of blue chip Companies in the UK – from Standard Coaches for Christmas parties to Executive for Events to Luxury for Corporate entertainment.


See our Corporate Coach Hire page for more information.

Airport Coach Hire

Airport Coach HireDue to security considerations most UK airports do not permit coach drivers to leave the coach unattended at the Airport. The driver will remain in the coach park and the passengers will make their way to the coach for departure. See our Airport Coach Hire page for information.

Each Airport has a couple of unique issues with regard to coach hire, namely the location of the coach park – for meet and greet and the cost of coach parking/meet and greet fee. See our section on airport coach hire for the procedure at each airport.

School Coach Hire

School Coach HireWhen selecting a supplier for School trips the booker should be comfortable about the vehicle’s seat belts, the Coach Company’s operators licence as well as Insurance and Risk Assessment. It is not enough to assume all is in order.

See our School Coach Hire page for more information.
