About Us

Providing safe, reliable and comfortable coach travel since 1983

We founded Mayday Travel because we’ve always had a passion for coach travel and passenger transport. Back then, we saw that the nature of travel was changing and we wanted to help modernise the passenger transportation industry. So, from day one, we focused on quality, dependability, and a warm, welcoming approach. As a family-run business, maintaining this reputation for providing a quality, reliable and friendly service is central to everything we do. That reputation has helped Mayday Travel become one of London’s best loved and most respected coach hire companies.

Over the decades lots of things have changed, our vehicles certainly have, but our commitment to our clients has not. We are proud to have served thousands of happy clients, from blue chip companies to private individuals and more than a few school football teams.

Experienced, qualified and trusted

With their extensive knowledge of the road network in and around London, our drivers are rather like walking road atlases. This in-depth local knowledge helps us get you to your destination on time—and should something unforeseen crop up along the way, the driver will know the best way to get around it with minimum fuss and delay. All our drivers hold a Driver Certificate of Professional Competence and, because we work with so many schools and youth groups, our drivers and escorts are also Enhanced DBS checked for your peace of mind.

We’ve worked with the BBC on a documentary helping to expose rogue coach travel brokers, which is another indication of our outstanding reputation in the field. We’re delighted to play such an important role in raising standards throughout the industry.

Reinventing coach travel for the 21st century

We believe in the magic of coach travel. In today’s world of cramped, frantic air travel and stressful journeys, our goal is to make every coach trip a relaxing, enjoyable experience for our passengers.

We strive for quality in everything we do, from our fleet of luxurious and comfortable vehicles to our brilliant customer service. As a family-run business, we’re able to offer a friendly, personal approach rarely seen in the transportation industry. That’s why a huge amount of our business comes from local referrals and repeat customers. We’re very proud of this reputation and we’re looking forward to serving our clients for many more decades.
