Horse racing

The UK has some of the world’s most iconic horse races; Royal Ascot, Glorious Goodwood, Cheltenham Festival and The Grand National. Attending a race day, for many, is the highlight of their social calendar. It’s a day to bask in the sunshine, sip on a gin or two and enjoy spending quality time with a group of your closest friends. As the major race days take over the start of summer, it’s time to start looking for the perfect coach hire so you can travel in luxury and arrive in style to the next event.

Why hire a coach for race days

Horse racing is one of the biggest events people book coach hire for. Not only is it an eco-friendly mode of transport but it is also the most cost-effective.

Your guests will be able to enjoy the extra space and legroom on-board our spacious coaches. So, there’s no need to worry about sitting in a cramped car or relying on public transport. Your guests will get to their destination feeling refreshed and raring to go!

Coach hire for groups makes perfect sense. Arranging a day out to the races with all your friends can often be a logistical nightmare. With everyone coming from different parts of the country, meeting times are often missed due to traffic and parking issues. When travelling by coach, there can be multiple pickups so you and your friends arrive altogether. Every coach hire booking is carefully planned by our in-house Operations team and your travel consultant to ensure the best route is taken.

The atmosphere doesn’t have to begin and end at the event, get the party started as soon as you and your friends step on-board.
