Hire Companies

The Union has contracts with three self drive hire companies and one driven company for Clubs and Societies to book transport through. Below is an introduction to the hire companies we use.

 

More information on each can be found in the Transport Booklet.

 

 

Driven Vehicles

The Union has a contract with a driven coach company, Company Coaches, whose information is found below, who offer a variety of vehicle sizes and provisions on board.

 

When booking transport, whether through the Union or externally you are reminded that drinking alcohol on the vehicles is prohibited and you need to ensure you are sat down and wearing your seatbelt for the duration of the travel.

 

Company Coaches is the company that provides us with driven vehicles. The cost of hires includes the vehicle, fuel and driver costs. On certain occasions there may be additional costs that you will be informed about dependent on the trip, i.e. driver accommodation if it is a weekend hire or additional drivers hours if the day is long.

 

There is a selection of coach sizes available to hire, including 8 seat MPV, 16 Seat Minibus and 19, 24, 32, 33, 49 and 51 Seat Coaches. The larger coaches (49/51 Seat) are wheelchair accessible with a lift, with the removal of 4 seats to accommodate one wheelchair. So if you require a wheelchair space to factor in the change in seats available.

 

Chairs can be removed and tables installed, where required, for longer journeys and increasing comfort. These requests need to be made in advance of the hire and at the time of the booking. If boot space is required, check in advance to see what space is available on the coach you require.

 

 

Self Drive

The Union has contracts with three self drive hire companies, who offer a variety of vehicles available to Clubs and Societies, providing it is an official trip (we don’t cover personal hires). All those wising to drive must register as an Authorised Driver.
