Travel in style by taking the coach

When planning a journey or heading off on a day trip somewhere, there are plenty of transport options open to us. Flying is quick, but can be costly, and airports can be a real pain to get to. Driving is an option for some trips, but taking to the roads means stress for the driver; traffic jams and parking nightmares included. Trains are great, but are often overcrowded, particularly at peak periods.

It’s surprising how many people rule out travel by coach before they’ve investigated the options fully. There’s a misconception that coach travel is a poor man’s choice, or a last resort. Some people feel it’s not luxurious enough to be a comfortable way to get from A to B.

It’s time for us to disprove the myth and prove that coach travel can be an indulgence.


People who don’t frequently travel by coach often feel that it will be an uncomfortable journey. They dread having to cope with seating that is not designed for long trips, or fear that there will be no facilities on board. People also feel coaches could be unsafe, or less safe than a car on the motorway.

These are old-fashioned misconceptions that belong in the past. Travelling by coach is a convenient way to begin and end a journey in style, so you’ll feel relaxed and refreshed.

On our modern coaches at Mayday Travel, there’s plenty of spacious seating and up-to-date facilities to ensure you always feel you’re being looked after. More importantly, there are seatbelts fitted to every seat on the coach.

Luxury Travel

The luxury begins when you step aboard. Your luggage is safely stowed away in the designated area in the under-garage, and your driver will always be happy to help you find a safe spot for it. There’s no need to be squashed alongside your cases as you would have to be if you travelled on a busy train, and train travellers also have the indignity of struggling with their bags.

Every coach has ample seating for every passenger with a ticket. There’s no need to worry that it will be overbooked; no sitting in the vestibule, or crouching next to the toilets for hours.

You’ll also enjoy plenty of leg room, unlike the cramped conditions on economy flights. Our seats are high quality and designed for comfort on long journeys. Accessibility is always taken into consideration, so you’ll be able to stand and sit with ease.

The inside of the coach will be climate controlled, so you’ll know that whatever the outside weather, you’ll stay warm in the winter and cool in the summer.
