Bristol is well-connected to the national motorway network. The M4 and M5 motorways intersect near Bristol, making it accessible by vehicle from major cities like London, Birmingham, and Cardiff. These motorways provide relatively smooth travel, but traffic congestion can occur, especially during rush hour, so if you are looking to hire a coach, these are important factors that our drivers will take into consideration for your planned journey.
