The corporate day out: a chance to impress colleagues, schmooze potential customers and outdo your competitors. From team-building activities and client dinners to networking events and large-scale conferences, corporate days out are an essential part of any business. Whether you’re organising the event or are just in charge of getting everyone there and back, you’re going to need a reliable mode of transport for all those people – something that won’t blow the budget, and that will look suitably smart and professional.
Hiring a coach is an excellent option for a corporate day out, as it enables everybody to travel (and arrive) together. Your colleagues or guests can just sit back and relax, rather than having to coordinate taxis and public transport. Everyone gets there on time, and no one is left behind. Modern coaches are comfortable, clean and beautifully air conditioned, so your group will turn up looking just as fresh as when it left the office. Coach operators keep their luxury fleets spotless and attractive, so you can be sure that you’ll all arrive in style.
Things to think about before you book
Modern coach operators offer a range of services, including vehicles of different sizes, so it’s useful to think about what you need before you book. How many people are you expecting to provide transport for? If your group is only small, say between six and 26 people, you might like to book a people carrier, mini coach or minibus. For bigger parties, a coach (or even a double-decked coach) would be more suitable. Here at Mayday Travel, our luxury fleet of large coaches can sit anywhere up to 49 or even 80 people.
Another factor to consider when booking a coach is whether you’re going to need transport throughout the day, or just to take your group to and from the venue. It is often possible to arrange for your coach driver to stay on hand for the duration of the day, in case you need to move between venues or pick up guests that have travelled separately. Though you can expect to pay more for this service, it’s still far cheaper than organising taxis or private cars, or buying individual tickets for public transport.
