Local Coach Companies

It is a sad truth that over the years we have lost many local coach companies, the likes of Barnards Coaches, Skegness Travel, Lawtons Coaches and Tourmaster Coaches are now a thing of the past.

These companies served local people across Lincolnshire, Nottinghamshire, Cambridgeshire and the surrounding areas, providing holidays across the whole of the UK, minibus hire and more.

Often coach companies are small family-run operations, many therefore close with retirement or no one to continue the legacy.

Why you should keep choosing coach travel

Coach travel for day-trippers & holidaymakers seeking a social experience and views along the way is a must. Travelling as a group is an experience in itself, meeting new friends and sharing in different experiences. Many make lifelong friends with those they are sat near to on coach holidays and enjoy sharing in the experience with like-minded people. This sets coach travel apart from the rest.

Coach travel is also convenient, often the stress of organising a trip is enough to put people off exploring. When there is a car trip, parking, bus to the airport, plane then another transfer on the other side, you can spend a full day not really achieving anything. Travelling by coach means you are picked up from a local and convenient place and that is it. The adventure starts from the moment you board. Along the way, you can share in the views, sit back and relax without a care in the world. It is also one of the most carbon-efficient (green) ground transport methods for groups of passengers.

Hunts Coaches are approaching their 90th year of serving Lincolnshire people with fabulous coach holidays, minibus hire, day excursions, theatre and concert experiences. We are also forever growing our valued customer base, so if you’re looking for a new travel partner for your next adventure. Look no further.
