The Momentum Coach Hire is the central booking Agent for a bespoke network over 300 coach and bus hire operators, servicing London and over 150 other towns and cities throughout the UK. From luxury coach rental in London to an Airport Transfer Coach Hire in Scotland, we have a full spectrum of clients ranging from major Private Sector Corporates to Schools and the Public Sector. Coach and Bus hire vehicles range from minibuses 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 which is trained to assist you in organising your coach rental.
All coach and bus hire quotes are generated taking into account time, mileage and season of the booking but exclude out of pocket expenses and second driver supplements that may become payable. If you are unsure of your booking requirements, give us a call and a member of our Bookings Team will be happy to advise how to avoid/minimise any incremental costs and out of pocket expenses where possible when booking a coach.
The Momentum Coach Hire network takes compliance (operator’s license and vehicle insurance, CRB checks and public liability) very seriously. It is for this reason that we insist that all operators that we act as agent for provide us with copies of their Operator’s Licence, Insurance Documents and CRB checks (on request). This gives us the confidence to promote and accept bookings for the services that the Operators provide.
For added peace of mind, we at Momentum Coach Hire are taking initiatives to increase transparency in the coach hire sector and now publish exactly what you think of the coach operators – real time – everyday. All customers are asked to leave feedback on their coach hire experience. This feedback is used to monitor the service levels of the Operators to make sure that standards improve in the industry as a whole and greater consistency is achieved.

We and our customers understand that coach and bus hire – like all transport and logistics services – can suffer delays due to a number of reasons which are outside the control of the coach hire operators such as previous customers overrun, mechanical problems, traffic, accidents, driver illness, diversions, adverse weather etc. We therefore recommend all customers have an appropriate contingency in their plans (see here) and are aware of our customer services policy in the case of such problems.
Luxury Coach Hire
Luxury 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
For 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
The 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
For 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
Momentum 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
Due 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
When 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.
Whatever the occasion we have 8 to 18 seat vehicles which will suit your needs. So whether it is a Corporate awayday, a stag or hen do or a trip to a football match we have the vehicle option for you. Click here for a quote
