Coach Hire and Minibus Hire in Bedford

Bedford is a delightful market town in Bedfordshire that’s nestled on the banks of the River Great Ouse. It’s here that you’ll find the perfect balance of entertainment, culinary culture and history all wrapped up in one.

St Paul's Square is the heart of the town in so many ways, while you’re always welcome to relax in Priory Country Park when you want to get away from the hustle and bustle.

Bedford Park and Herring Green Activity Farm provide entertainment for groups of all ages, making them particularly suited to birthdays and large family outings with all the relatives.

There’s also the Panacea Museum for those who love their history, plus a thriving culinary scene with the likes of The Higgins Pantry and Amici offering some of the finest local cuisine.

Why choose coach hire in Bedford?

Choosing SMC Coach Hire is the convenient way to cost effectively get to and from London Luton Airport. Situated a little over 18 miles away, the airport is the closest international hub and be reached by road in 30 minutes or less with good traffic.

Rather than taking your chances with the unpredictable congestion in this part of the country, put your faith in one of our drivers to get you there bright and early. Add in the onboard WiFi and ample leg room that we can provide, not to mention more luggage storage than you’ll ever be able to fill, and we really have thought of everything.

Hiring a minibus in Bedford

SMC's minibus hire service is a quick and easy option for smaller groups of 19 or less or who want to be able to explore the sites of the town with unrivalled flexibility. Top of the list for many travelling parties is the Harpur Shopping Centre because of its beautiful array of local boutiques and High Street names.

When you book, one of our travel experts will listen to all your needs and make sure you get a vehicle that’s perfect for what you want to do for the day.

If you’re ready to shop until you drop, we could provide a minibus with additional luggage storage so you never have to sacrifice your leg room or go home with a few bits less than you want.
