Blackburn Coach Hire has provided minibus hire in Blackburn for over ten years. A minibus is the ideal way to meet the travel needs of small groups (from 6 up) who want to travel to an event together. A minibus cuts out the expense of rail travel and the often difficult job of having to coordinate arrangements for people travelling to the starting point of the trip from different locations. It is also a more economical alternative than ferrying people around in taxis. All our vehicles are under six years old and maintained in tip-top condition with plenty of room for baggage. Your minibus comes with a fully trained and licensed driver who will provide you with the best service possible. Our drivers will discuss your requirements with you. You can be assured that they know the best way to get to your destination and whenever possible will take evasive action to avoid any delays and ensure you stay on schedule. At Blackburn Coach Hire we pride ourselves on our courteous, professional and competitive service.
