Top 6 benefits of coach travel

Jenai Laignel / 09 June 2014 ( 23 November 2015 )

Coach travel has come back into fashion recently as more and more people are realising its benefits - both in terms of a more 'greener' form of travel and a more enjoyable way of getting from A to B.

Here are the top six reasons you should consider coach travel for your next trip – so get comfortable, sit back, and enjoy the ride.

1. Inexpensive

With the soaring prices of petrol, driving holds even less appeal. Coach travel can also be far cheaper than taking the train, as well as taking you directly to your destination – saving you taxi fares to and from the train station.

2. Green transport

Travel with a clean conscience; coaches are one of the greenest forms of transport. Moving many people around in a single vehicle has numerous benefits in terms of reduced fossil fuel usage and lower emissions per passenger. In addition, trips and breaks in the UK are obviously better for the planet than oversea alternatives which involve more lengthy travel.

3. Explore beautiful Britain

Within this island of ours lies a vast array of cultural, historical and natural beauty. From city trips to places like London, Bath and Edinburgh to events like Royal Ascot and Wembley Stadium, there's something for everyone.

4. Reduced stress

Forget scrambling around with a road map. Coach travel allows you to have your very own chauffeur who knows exactly where they're going. Socialise with the people around you instead of focusing on driving.

5. Safety

Coaches are also statistically safer than travelling by car. A coach driver knows the roads like the back of his hand, safely transporting you with a door to door service.
