Welcome to London Bus Hire, one of the most respected and longest-serving vehicle hire companies in the Greater London area. Born as a small family-run concern in Richmond upon Thames, we have grown over the intervening 30-plus years into a thriving business with the resources to offer a world-class range of hiring options along with a service that aims to put you in the driving seat - literally or figuratively.
Customer service is at the heart of what we do, and is our most important value. That's why our business has grown every year since we began, why our customer satisfaction rating is at an all-time high according to online reviews and testimonials, and why we won the coveted Excellence in Service award for the Greater London area three years running.
Our fleet is one of the most modern and advanced in the country, featuring everything from 10-seat standard-class minibuses to 80-seat luxury coach liners. On top of an army of talented ground staff - such as mechanics to maintain all vehicles in tip-top condition, cleaners to deep-clean every vehicle after every use, and inspectors to ensure that we are in full legal compliance with all relevant statutes - London Coach Hire employs only the best drivers who are safety-certified and trained in first aid and CPR.
All our vehicles are environmentally friendly, fully accessible, air-conditioned, and come with free wifi and charging points. Depending on the size, we can also offer bathroom facilities, individual DVD players, games consoles and a fully stocked bar. All vehicles come with GPS tracking and satnav, and can be hired on a self-drive basis (qualified drivers only, please) or with a professional chauffeur who knows the city like the back of their hand.
See right side for our wide range of services, available 24 hours a day and 365 days a year, either one-way or return. Distance is no object, as we will take you to Wembley just as easily as Aberdeen or Saint-Tropez. We are as happy creating bespoke arrangements tailored to your specifications as we are handling the simplest shuttle service.
Corporate- If you need to get your office staff to an important conference, take them on a team-building exercise out of town, or get your players or fans to a key sports fixture, we offer the ideal executive option to get them where they need to be on time and in style. We understand that punctuality is vital in today's business world, and that's why we work hard to achieve a 96% on-time-or-earlier success rate.
Leisure- Whether sight-seeing around the capital's many thrilling tourist attractions in an open-top bus with a knowledgable guide, taking that much-needed trip to the sun on the British coast or overseas, or just getting to one of London's numerous airports so the adventure can begin, we can design a holiday transport plan that maximises the fun while minimising the impact on your wallet.
School- In a popular capital city like London, where almost nine million residents are joined by an astonishing 30 million visitors every year, getting the kids to school on time while keeping them safe on the busy city streets can be a tough trick to pull off. We offer daily school-run coaches to deliver your little ones door-to-door, or minibuses for unique educational trips, all with safety foremost in mind.
Celebrations- The LCH Party Bus is ready to roll whenever you need it, from sumptuous and elegant wedding hire via outrageous stag or hen nights to the classic Christmas panto outing. Booking our vehicles and drivers in advance is the perfect way to ensure you get home safely and conveniently after a night on the tiles, from Tooting to High Barnet via Covent Garden and anywhere in between.
Events- When you're planning a big day out at one of London's many exciting outdoor events, and you just know parking will be impossible, you can depend on London Coach Hire to get you, your friends and family to wherever you need to be, whether that's Wimbledon, Glastonbury, the Chelsea Flower Show or Winter Wonderland. Use our connections to score great group deals on show tickets too!
Commercial- Sometimes you need to get the word out there, and if you hire with us, our drivers will happily cover the length and breadth of the city safely and with style, with your promotional and advertising campaigns and slogans proudly emblazoned for all your potential customers to see. Previous customers have reported a 30% jump in business after a single day's advertising with us.
If these options don't sound like exactly what you're looking for, please contact us and our highly trained sales agents will do their best to cater to just what you need. From budget to luxury, from 10 seats to 80, and from the daily commute to international vacations, we know we can put together the perfect package to suit you.
We will give every customer our best, but we also offer special rewards and amazing deals for repeat customers. Our 'LCH Club' multi-level loyalty system helps you to accumulate greater benefits the more you travel with us, offering everything from discounts and upgrades to free booze for the journey.
