A new website giving travel-goers access to the UK’s largest network of more than 700 coach operators has just been launched.
Coachfinder.co.uk is a new online tool that makes it quicker and easier for people to hire the right coach at the best price for their group travel needs, including sporting events, weddings, social trips, festivals, short-breaks to Europe and much more.
The summer festival season is just around the corner and people are gathering their friends and making plans to enjoy the best events the UK has to offer. Coachfinder.co.uk takes the hassle out of travel planning, enabling people to find and book the best value coach for their group at the click of a button.
Coachfinder.co.uk has teamed up with Brendan Sheerin, the much-loved host of the popular reality TV programme “Coach Trip”, to launch the website and encourage more groups to consider travelling by coach by simplifying the planning and booking process. “Travelling by coach can be great fun. I’m delighted to be partnering with Coachfinder.co.uk to launch this new website and raise the profile of coaching in the UK,” said Brendan.
Summer is the perfect season for short trips both at home and abroad. Schools, clubs, voluntary societies, faith groups, music and sporting fans all book coaches for day trips and mini-breaks to venues across the UK and into mainland Europe. Coach travel is cost-effective and takes passengers directly to their destination at the precise time they require. With its network of more than 700+ coach operators and a wide variety of vehicles to choose from, Coachfinder.co.uk can serve any group, any time, to any-where.
Using its trusted network of partners in the leisure and tourism industries, Coachfinder.co.uk also provides useful information about hotel bookings, ferry crossings and event tickets, making it even easier to complete the travel planning process.
Coachfinder.co.uk enables people to search for coaches based on their journey dates, passenger numbers, location/destination and vehicle specification. The website generates a recommended coach for the journey, together with several alternative options including cheaper and higher spec alternatives. In this way Coachfinder.co.uk delivers the best value coach hire by displaying how people can save money through changing their search, such as opting for a smaller or larger coach.
It also simplifies the booking process by enabling instant online payment through PayPal, without the need to request a call back. Further payment options will be added in due course.
Coachfinder.co.uk is provided by one of the UK’s most award-winning coach operators, The Kings Ferry – part of the National Express Group. The Kings Ferry is a coach operator based in Kent, and has extensive experience in travel management for large corporate clients.
“We have established a trusted network of more than 700 UK coach operators over many years so can ensure that customers who use Coachfinder.co.uk to book a coach will receive a high level of personalised service,” said Ian Fraser, Managing Director of The Kings Ferry.
He continues, “Brendan Sheerin is the UK’s favourite tour guide and is well-loved for making coach travel fun, so he is the ideal partner to help launch the website. Our aim is that Coachfinder.co.uk will encourage more groups to consider travelling by coach by making it easier to find and hire the right coach, alongside providing great value.”
