About Us

Who Are We?

We are a family coach hire business, based in Tamworth, run by husband and wife Graham & Karen Bethell.

We have operated contracts and private hire for various schools and local authorities for many years, along with rail replacement, tours both UK & Europe, staff transport for agencies and private hire. Our fleet currently is based on 16 to 87 seat coaches, including popular 49, 53 and 57 seater executive coaches. Our experience over the years is vast, having worked in the public transport industry for over 30 years. In this time we have been involved in many transport projects. Our senior partner is also a transport consultant working for key companies around the UK on transport projects.   

Although Tamworth based we cover the surrounding area including Birmingham, Sutton Coldfield, Lichfield, Alrewas, Swadlincote, Burton On Trent, Atherstone, Bedworth, Nuneaton, Twycross, Coleshill, Polesworth and all areas in between!  

Our fleet consists of 20 coaches, including our latest fleet of new 53 seat Euro VI executive coaches. We also have a number of coaches which are PSVAR compliant and include a wheelchair lift and wheelchair space on board. These coaches meet the latest set of regulations introduced in January 2020. 

In 2021 we acquired LA Travel and now operate as a single business, with two depots in Tamworth, one in Nuneaton and another in Lichfield.
