Did you ever have ‘places’ in the car when you were younger? Is it a tradition that you’ve carried through to your own family? Were you one of the ‘cool kids’ at school who sat at the back of the bus? We’re not here to judge, we completely understand – some seats just feel better than others!
Of course, if you’re travelling on a coach that you’ve never been on before then you won’t know which seat is ‘your’ seat. To help make sure you pick wisely (you don’t want the wrong seat for a long journey, after all), we’ve put together a guide to what makes the best seat on a coach.
Sitting right at the front of the coach has a few key benefits. A front seat will mean you’re first off the coach when you stop for a rest break or when you get to your destination. Not only that, but a seat at the front offers fantastic forward-facing views and, for many, sitting at the front can save them from any feelings of travel sickness.
At the back
The coveted ‘cool’ seats. A great choice for those of us who never quite managed to sit at the back of the bus when we were younger and want to see what all the fuss was about! In all seriousness, the back seats (especially if there’s a longer row at the back, as there often is) are a great choice for children and families who want to sit together to chat or play games.
If you’re keen to have a good game of Eye Spy or you just like to look at the world pass you by as you travel, then the window seat has to be the choice for you. Team up with somebody who prefers an aisle seat (you’ll undoubtedly have a mix in your group) and enjoy a journey in perfect seat-preference equilibrium!
Seats with tables
If you’re looking to get some work done while you’re travelling, then a seat with a table (even just a seat-back table) is an absolute essential. However, it isn’t just the worker bees that need somewhere to rest their things – seats with tables are handy if you’re planning on watching a film, playing cards or just want somewhere to put your snacks!
We think it’s safe to say that there is not one seat that we can call the ‘best’ – all have their benefits and it’s a matter of personal preference. Luckily, whether you’re travelling to the football or going across the border for a family holiday, Mayday Travel has a selection of comfortable and well-equipped vehicles to offer you.
