Highly recommended company

Recently used 'E coaches' for a private hire to Blackpool and must say just how professional and customer focused this company is, from the first phone call to the trip itself. The coach was spotless in and out and nothing was too much trouble for the driver who really went the extra mile for us after a dreadful escape out of Blackpool due to the traffic. Highly recommended company and will definitely use again.

Best coach trip I've ever been on.

Connor and Claire made us feel so welcome, our day out felt more like a wonderful family outing than a coach trip, and now we can't wait to join them again. This has been the best coach trip I have ever been on! The journey to York included a fun Quiz, we had answers not necessarily the right ones, but we had fun. We were excited to get the first stamp's on our E Coaches loyalty card's. They tucked a bottle of water and biscuits in the seat pouch for each customer, a lovely little treat. The coach was immaculate having been cleaned from top to bottom, in preparation for welcoming their customers on board. They take pride in their company and they really do enjoy their jobs. Thank you E Coaches for a fabulous day and we will see you again soon

Our journey began way back in 1970, backed by our family heritage

'E' Coaches was founded back in 1970 by Eric Bacon as 'E' Taxis before becoming a coach company in 1975. His beloved wife Janet joined to manage the book keeping and cleaning and his son Keiron joined the business in 1989 and took ownership in 1996. The company today is still owned by Keiron and proudly run by the third generation in the form of Connor Bacon. We're lovingly family run and pride ourselves on offering the personal touch.
