Coach Hire and Minibus Hire in Bolton

Bolton is one of the more cosmopolitan areas of Greater Manchester and is a town with a fascinating past. Its location at the base of the West Pennine Moors allowed it to fit quietly into the surrounding area for centuries, before an industrial boom hit in the late Victorian era. By 1929 the town was home to over 200 cotton mills and became one of the world’s leading sites for cotton spinning.

Today you’ll find Bolton to be a welcoming destination for day trips and a convenient base if you’re looking to travel further afield. Manchester and Liverpool Airports are both within a 25 mile radius, allowing you to fly out to a wide range of international destinations.

If you’re looking to reconnect with nature, travelling to Bolton by coach or minibus is a relaxing way to get to and from the West Pennine Moors. No matter why you choose to visit, all you have to do is leave the driving to the experts.

Why choose coach hire in Bolton?

Crompton Place and the Market Place Shopping Centre combine all the major brands you’d expect with a number of local offerings. Whether you’re looking for handmade cotton pieces that celebrate the town’s heritage, or homemade savoury treats, both centres are well worth a look. If you’d rather not face the weekend traffic, choosing SMC Coach Hire to transport a large party to and from each destination eliminates the stress quickly and easily.

You can also choose SMC Coach Hire to take a large group on a walking tour of Jumbles Country Park. A 10 km circular trail will provide plenty of opportunity for stretching your legs and breathing in some fresh air, while your driver for the day is on hand when it’s time to head home. Perfect when you want to make coordinating arrival and departure times as easy as it should be.

Hiring a minibus in Bolton

SMC's minibus hire service is a highly flexible way to get from Bolton to the many rural wedding venues the local area has to offer. The Tithe Barn in Skipton is a popular choice, as is The Hawthorns at the Douglas Valley Golf Course. While rural settings don’t typically present problems with parking or traffic, they do often command a premium price for last-minute taxis. Our luxury and VIP minibus hire service offers you a great range of vehicles with some equipped with top spec features, all designed with your comfort in focus.

Minibuses are also driven by skilled and experienced drivers who ensure your journey is both hassle-free and enjoyable. Simply book minibus hire with SMC ahead of the big day and you’ll be able to eliminate the risk of delays or waiting in line to get home at the end of the night. Sit back, relax and allow a professional to drop you and your party off in style.
