Benefits of hiring a coach or minibus for your camping trip

Published 31st Jul 2023
Embarking on a camping trip is a wonderful way to reconnect with nature, create cherished memories with family and friends, and unwind from the hectic pace of modern life.

Organising transportation for your group can be a logistical challenge. This is where hiring a coach or minibus can truly transform your camping adventure.

Whether you're in the process of planning your end of summer escape or know someone who is, this blog will explore the many benefits of hiring a coach or minibus for a camping trip.

Storage Space for Camping Gear

Camping trips require packing an array of camping gear, from tents and sleeping bags to cooking equipment and outdoor essentials.

Coaches and minibuses come equipped with storage compartments or trailers, providing enough room to stow your camping gear securely. Instead of cramming everything into an individual car, your equipment will be well-organized and protected during the journey.

Eco-Friendly Travel

Concerns over the environment is becoming increasingly important, and opting for a coach or minibus can be a greener choice for group travel.

SMC Coach Hire’s vehicles are designed to be fuel-efficient and can carry an array of passengers in one trip, reducing the overall carbon footprint. In contrast, multiple individual cars would emit more greenhouse gases and contribute to traffic congestion.

You’ll be sure to feel good about choosing a coach or minibus for your next camping trip, as you'll be doing your bit in saving the planet.  

Safe and Reliable Transportation 

When travelling in a group with children, safety is always a top priority.

SMC Coach Hire ensure that you have a responsible and experienced driver at the wheel. Drivers are trained to handle different road conditions and navigate challenging terrains, whilst prioritizing the safety of all passengers.

Your coach driver will get you to and from your destination on time, so you don't have to worry.

Comfortable and Convenient Travel

Another great benefit of hiring a coach or minibus is the level of comfort and convenience it offers. Our vehicles are designed to provide sufficient space for passengers, with comfortable seating and air conditioning. Unlike cramped cars or public transport, a coach or minibus allows everyone to relax and enjoy the trip.

Moreover, you won't have to worry about multiple vehicles or coordinating arrival times. Your entire journey will be hassle-free and convenient for the whole group.

Stress-Free Parking

Parking and unloading multiple cars can be a pain, and with extortionate campsite parking prices, parking can become an unwanted issue for you and your group.

A coach or minibus eliminates these issues altogether. Your driver will drop you off at the most convenient location, ensuring a seamless transition from travel to camping. You’ll be able to focus on relishing the outdoor adventure, without worrying about the many parking problems.

Access to Remote Camping Spots

Some of the most beautiful camping spots are often tucked away in remote locations that may not be easily accessible by regular vehicles or public transport.

Hiring a coach or minibus with off-road capabilities allows you to venture into these hidden gems and experience nature's untouched beauty. Your driver's expertise in navigating challenging terrains ensures that your group can safely reach these secluded camping spots, creating an unforgettable wilderness experience away from the hustle and bustle of modern life.

Flexibility in Itinerary

Pit stops and breaks are essential for groups when taking a long-haul drive. When you hire a coach or minibus, you have the flexibility to create a customized itinerary that suits your group.

Unlike rigid public transport schedules, you can plan service stops, scenic detours, and even spontaneous sightseeing opportunities along the way. And if your plans change, don’t worry, your driver will be happy to make changes to the itinerary.

Relaxed Return Journey

As the camping trip comes to an end, the journey home can be a time of exhaustion and waning enthusiasm.

Having a coach or minibus waiting for you at the campsite is the perfect way to conclude the adventure. You can simply load your camping gear, settle into your comfortable seats, and reminisce on the memorable moments shared during the trip.
