As a company that specialises in coach hire, we think that we know what makes an enjoyable coach journey. During our travels we have witnessed passengers that have done no preparation for their journey what’s so ever, to those that have probably over-prepared. Overall though, coach journeys and holidays are a great way to see a lot in a short space of time, whilst you just sit back, relax and let someone else take the strain of driving. We suggest that you follow the simple tips below to learn about how to holiday by coach the easy way.
Check when your passport expires
If you are planning on going abroad on your coach holiday, be sure to check your passport expiration date before you leave. Or, for more information you could always check online.
Should I buy travel insurance?
We strongly recommend that you buy some travel insurance to cover you whether your trip is at home or abroad. Policies do usually cover cancellation delays as well as medical cover.
What to pack
If you are going on a coach tour, it’s likely that you will be staying in a range of different hotels throughout your trip. Because of this, it is advisable that you pack as light as possible. Here are some things to pack:
- Important documents and passport
- Wear loose clothing
- Carry bottled water
- Carry some food
- Neck pillow
- Mobile phone
- Toiletries and wet wipes
What to pack if you are travelling overnight
Many modern coaches now have reclining seats so that you can sleep on your overnight journey. So, here are a few items you may want to pack so it’s easier to sleep.
- Neck Pillow
- Eye masks and ear plugs
