Coach Hire and Minibus Hire in Poole

Poole is a charming market town located near Bournemouth in Dorset on the South coast. Known primarily for its beautiful tidal harbour and stunning waterfront, Poole has become something of a major attraction for day trippers and lovers of the coast of late. Poole Park and Upton Country Park both offer pristine green spaces when it’s time to stretch your legs, while the iconic Sandbanks Beach is the place to go when you want to feel the sand between your toes.

Poole Quay has weekly live music throughout the summer and also puts on a range of special events throughout the year. Being able to discover new artists with a stunning seaside view in the background is an experience you’ll never forget.

When it’s time for a bite to eat, the Dragonfly Pan Asian Restaurant and Italian Diva offer elegant cuisine from around the world. Add in a quick trip to the Dolphin Shopping Centre and you can enjoy a wide range of fun activities in just one day thanks to SMC Coach Hire.

Why choose coach hire in Poole?

SMC Coach Hire can be a simple way to get to the Vitality Stadium in nearby Bournemouth. While the football team have made quite a name for themselves in the Premier League in recent seasons, live boxing now offers a great second sport for the local area. Whichever you choose to go and watch, an SMC coach will be able to ensure you are never left waiting in the car park queue with the crowds when the final whistle goes.

If you’re travelling further afield then Bournemouth International Airport can be reached in 20 minutes or less thanks to the local knowledge of your SMC coach driver. Our luxury and VIP coaches can offer ample luggage storage, spacious and comfortable seating and even onboard WiFi. We will make sure you avoid the stress of having to find parking and have plenty of time to check in for your flight and enjoy the start of your trip.

Perfect for a cost-effective solution to group travel that will never leave you waiting. 

At SMC Coach Hire, we prioritise your comfort and enjoyment at all times, therefore our extensive range of minibus hire vehicles may include modern features such as air conditioning and onboard WiFi, so you can enjoy your smooth journey from start to finish.

Your experienced driver will also be on hand to offer flexible drop off options if you want to go for a meal on your way back to your hotel.
