GoGo Coach Hire Guide
We understand that chartering a bus might seem involved, even more so when you’re accommodating large groups. Here at GoGo Charters, it is our job to eliminate that stress for you! Our capable representatives are available around the clock to help make your next travel experience simple. We've formulated a step-by-step coach hire guide below to walk you through the coach hire process. We've assisted in planning thousands of trips from sporting events to corporate conventions for large corporations. We know what we’re doing, so let us do it for you!
Reserving a Coach Hire
When to book: It is best to plan your bus reservations at least one month in advance for optimal availability. When you’re ready, our representatives will explain all of our vehicle models and amenities to point you in the direction of the best ride possible for your outing. Call us whenever you’re ready and we will give you a free quote. Final rates are based on availability and subject to change. Not only will booking early ensure the best bus option for your group, but could also provide the best rate.
What Information You Need: Make sure to have the following information ready when you call to book your trip:
- Contact information (Name, Phone Number, Email)
- Date, time, and location for pick-up
- Date, time, and location of destination
- Information about pick-up and drop-off stops on your route
** Keep in mind: Regulations permit your driver to a maximum of 10 hours per day with 15 hours of duty time. Eight (8) hours of rest is required for your driver between shifts.
Selecting The Right Bus
Coach Hire: This option is our largest and most popular selection, housing up to 56 passengers comfortably. This vehicle is perfect for large groups or long distances. Many of these vehicles come with Wi-Fi, flat screen televisions, reclining seats, and clean bathrooms. The charter buses in our network possess the largest amount of storage space which makes them ideal for groups traveling with a lot of luggage.
Mini bus: Our mini bus is a versatile medium size vehicle seating anywhere between 9-25 passengers. This bus is the best option for small to medium-sized groups that want to travel together. Our smaller option, the Mercedes-Benz sprinter van, is ideal for airport transportation or transporting smaller groups wherever they desire around the UK. Like the charter buses, the mini buses can also be upgraded with luxurious amenities.
Entertainer Bus: Also known as tour buses, our entertainer buses are great for VIPs going long distances. This bus doubles as a home when you’re on the road. These vehicles offer amenities like bathrooms, beds, kitchenettes, a sitting area and, of course, Wi-. These are great for bands and performers or even just groups that want luxury on the road.
The Day Before Your Trip
The day before your trip, we will contact you by SMS and email with your driver’s contact information so you can correspond with them at your convenience. We always suggest calling your driver directly to discuss your travel plans and any requests you might have.
If you have any last-minute concerns or changes, call us and we will do everything we can to meet your needs!
The Day of Your Trip
On the day your journey, we ask that you arrive at your pick-up location on the time you planned with your driver. Your driver will help you and your group load up your belongings and get settled onto the bus. Your driver will do everything he or she can to make sure you have the best trip possible. Gratuity is completely up to you. However, the standard gratuity for the drive is 10%.
When you arrive at your destination, we want to know about your trip! Please call us and tell us how your trip went. We value our customer feedback and want to make sure you enjoyed your experience with GoGo Charter. Also, we’d love for you to leave a review about your trip on our website.
