School Trip Solutions

At CoachHire.com we know that allowing children to learn in places other than the classroom can be extremely rewarding, but it can also be stressful at times. Often both at once!

Worrying about the logistics of a school trip needn't add to the stress. We believe that booking and using a coach or minibus to get you and the kids from A to B should be quick, easy, reliable and most importantly safe.

We ensure that all our vetted operators meet the high safety standards set by UK law for transporting children by coach or minibus.

Our travel advisers will help you with the planning process and our highly-trained operations team are ready to tackle any difficulties or changes to the journey you might encounter after your booking; we do our utmost to ensure everything goes as smoothly as it possibly can.

SchoolSafe: Secure Tracking Technology

Our SchoolSafe tracking technology was designed to be used by parents for Home to School routes but has proved to be a great addition for schools and parents looking to keep track of classes on trips.

By giving schools the ability to track vehicles via GPS and check when children have boarded the coach we help them to ensure pupil safety is as easy to control when off-site as during normal lessons.

Parents can securely track whether their children have boarded the vehicle via the SchoolSafe app which uses London-Oyster-card-style RFID technology, scanned barcodes or biometrics (fingerprints) allowing pupils to swipe on or off the vehicle at each stop. Available on:
