Coach Hire and Minibus Hire in Aberdeen

Aberdeen, also known as the ‘Granite City’ takes its name from the rich sources of stone that were used to build many of the public buildings in the centre of the city during the Victorian era. Marischal College is a great example and is today used as the City Council’s headquarters.

Look beyond the cityscape and you’ll see the Dee and Don rivers meeting one another as they run into the North Sea. Also, with large-scale offshore drilling now being a major part of the local industry, Aberdeen is a location that attracts professionals from all over the world. Despite this recent technological boom, the city has stayed true to its roots with a thriving local harbour continually landing fresh catches. 

Nowhere is this chronicled better than in the highly popular Aberdeen Maritime Museum situated in the iconic Shiprow area. The exhibits offer everything you will ever need to know about the city’s nautical past before you enjoy meals prepared with the fresh catches just a short walk away in the city centre.

Why choose coach hire in Aberdeen?

Choosing SMC Coach Hire can be the perfect way to keep your party together as you make your way to Aberdeen International Airport. As it’s under 6 miles northwest of the city centre, hiring a professional driver takes the stress out of city driving. SMC Coach Hire's knowledge of dedicated drop-off points for coaches will also save you time and effort with coordinating long-stay parking for smaller vehicles.

The same is true of shopping trips to Union Square and The Trinity Centre. Because both lie right in the centre of the city, space is at a premium. With a little over 400 parking spaces for thousands of daily visitors, you may think you have no choice but to get there early. Thanks to SMC Coach Hire's knowledge of the local area, you and your group of passengers can be dropped off and picked up while your driver waits at the dedicated long-stay coach parking down at the Beach Esplanade.

Hiring a minibus in Aberdeen

SMC’s minibus hire service is always a great way to take smaller groups of 19 or under on cultural and culinary tours of the city. Duthie Park in the Ferryhill area offers over 40 acres of pristine countryside to stretch your legs in the fresh air. Once you’ve worked up an appetite, your minibus driver for the day can take you to any number of the local eateries for a traditional meal. A warm bowl of Cullen skink seen off with an Aberdeen Rowie bread roll at one of the local pubs would certainly go down well. Once it’s time to go home, simply sit back and relax while your minibus gets you there in style.

We have a wide range of vehicles ranging from cheap minibus hire options to luxury and VIP minibus hire options on request. Features may include Air conditioning, premium leather seats, WI-FI and many more great features.
