COACH TRANSPORT

Coach Transport Options

We can provide a door-to-door coach or minibus service, transfers between Island accommodation and activities, or we can support you using your own vehicles or suppliers. Your choice!

Coach trip of smiling school children in uniform on their way to the Isle of Wight

We are able to offer you a choice from two Isle of Wight based operators and our preferred mainland based operator.

Alternatively, we are happy to work with a supplier of your choice, as we know that some schools have supplier arrangements with local companies. We can book ferry tickets at our preferential rates, arrange driver accommodation (separate from your cohort if you prefer), overnight parking and supply all of the itinerary information they are likely to need.

Mainland -vs- Island Coach Operator


Island Based

No driver accommodation costs or safeguarding concerns

No overnight parking considerations

Local area experts = free tour guide!

Lots of experience with Island venues and roads

Access to spare vehicles in case of breakdown on island

Access to alternative vehicle types if you wish to split your group

Mainland Based

Reduced "dead mileage" = lower environmental impact

Wider choice of vehicle sizes

More options in case of breakdown on main journey

More accurate departure timekeeping

Fewer ferry crossings

Travelling in the school minibus?

We can book your ferry tickets (at preferential rates), organise overnight parking if needed and provide you with all of the itinerary information you are likely to need, including directions, timings and parking details.

Coming across as foot passengers?

We regularly host schools that are based closed to Portsmouth, Southampton or Lymington that travel across the Solent as foot passengers. We can arrange vehicles to meet you on arrival and drop you off again when it's time to go home, and everything inbetween.

Travelling from outside mainland UK?

Our coaches can come and meet you at the airport of your choice, or the Eurostar international terminals.

We're totally flexible when it comes to planning your transport!
