Our New Arrival is fully disabled friendly

Published on 28th September 2017

We have just taken delivery of a 49 seat Iveco Eurorider Coach.

This vehicle comes with DVD/CD Player, air conditioning and toilet facilities.

Not only that, but the coach is designed with fully disabled facilities.

For those with mobility problems, the full size lift can save you the climb up the conventional stairs.  You can use the lift straight to your seat.

For those that have more severe mobility problems, we can lift both you and your wheelchair straight into the Coach using the full size hydraulic lift and you can sit in your own wheelchair for the duration of the trip.  Your wheelchair can be locked safely into the Coach floor.

Not only that, but to make life a bit easier, the coach comes with a full size disabled access toilet and washroom, on the same level as the seating.  No need to go downstairs.

This coach has very large under lockers capable of storing wheelchairs, walkers and scooters and has high visibility handrails inside the coach for those with sight impairment.

Please bear in mind when hiring this coach, that for every wheelchair on-board, it reduces the seating capacity by two seats.

The following review has recently been posted on Trusted Travel Reviews by Kelly Betts of Barnet…..
Really efficient on the phone before and on the day. All went to plan. The driver was really friendly and helpful. We had 44 passengers and everyone remarked on how nice he was. He had a few technical difficulties with the CD player which seemed to have a mind of its own but the driver Perry persevered to keep us entertained and found radio channels etc. We booked a toilet on board too but couldn’t seem to use it. Luckily it was only an hours trip so not the end of the world. Would definitely recommend – really reasonably priced and a great service. Thank You!
Rated 5/5
Kelly Betts

We would point out that the law requires that passengers are required to wear seatbelts at all times and therefore may not use the toilet whilst the vehicle is in motion as it requires removing seatbelts.  The driver will make any stops as necessary for calls of nature.

We received this email from a Trafalgar Tour Director following a grand tour of the UK.

My name is Andrew Speed and I was the Tour Director on the Trafalgar BIXP that finished yesterday and I wanted to send you a message of thanks for providing such an excellent service.

Firstly, I cannot fault the coach provided, it was a superbly comfortable vehicle and appreciated by the whole group.

The driver, Tony Russell was superb and is a great asset to your Company. I have been a Tour Director for almost three decades and he ranks among the best drivers I’ve ever had. His abilities were noticed and commented on by the entire group. He was never complacent and his eye was constantly on the ball. I don’t think I’ve ever seen someone cleaning the vehicle as much as him and he was absolutely brilliant with the guests, they all loved him and that he was mentioned by every passenger in their tour evaluations. He is obviously a tour driver of the highest calibre. His driving skills are superb.

Once again, thank you very much for this excellent service and I can assure you I have provided Trafalgar with an equally glowing report.

Kind Regards
Andrew Speed

What our Customers think ……

The following is an extract taken from a recent article in the Bedford Bowls Club newsletter.

Then in August we had our traditional summer trip to Southend again and we took 65 members with us. This has become another firm fixture in the diary that we enjoy and for some members it’s the only opportunity that they get to spend the day by the seaside. Once again, this was a great day. Nothing beats wandering up and down the seafront and then fish and chips by the sea – and the weather was great.
We use Landmark Coaches for our trips and we must say that the coaches are always in great condition and the driver goes out of her way to accommodate us. we couldn’t ask for more.
Both trips were rounded off with the usual sing song on the way home, with some members entertaining our travelers with solo performances.

We are glad that we were able to provide an excellent service yet again.

Don’t forget for all of you coach, bus or mini bus requirements, we a just a phone call away on 01462 733764 or you can visit our website at

We received this lovely email at 1548 on the 9th August

Just a quick message to say thank you for all of your help. The wedding was a complete success with a fantastic driver Andrew. He was part of the wedding.

Everything went to plan plus more. It was a weekend to remember in every way possible and knowing that my main concern was transporting guests from the Holiday Inn at Stevenage to the Venue and return, I was positive it would go to plan, which it did.

Many thanks to Andrew, our driver for the day, on his polite, helpful attitude as it had been a long day, but he still greeted the wedding bus guests at the end of the wedding with a smile.

Your bus company has been recommended to the Holiday Inn for future coach/bus journeys, as I know they were looking for another coach company for their hotel needs as and when required. Your leaflet was left with the reception team.

Once again, many many thanks for all the numerous email threads and phone calls to make this wedding complete.

As you can imagine, we are all feeling a bit low after such a build up, but at least we can say the bride and groom had what they wished for on this special day of theirs.

Kind Regards
Jenny and Dominique WilliamsSN851163

Good Morning
Please would you pass on our thanks to David for our great day out to Wiseley on Saturday. He put my mind at rest by arriving early and was very helpful in dropping people off in the village on the way back. He also found the shopping someone had left in the luggage rack.

We thought the coach was very comfortable. We would certainly consider using your company again for any future outings.

ImageI just wanted to thank the whole Landmark Team, especially Andrew, our driver and Renata in the Office, for a fantastic trip to Snowdonia this year. As always, the Office Team are fantastic and make life so easy for me when booking – none of my questions even seem a bother. Andrew was great and always fully prepared for each day of the trip in terms of routes and safety/cleanliness of the Coach.

I have attached a picture of “Emma” (How nice that you have named a Coach after me!! – It must be all the bookings I make) on the beach at Criccieth in North Wales. Andrew even dusted down our boots before we go back on – What Service!!

Thanks again – always my preferred Transport Provider
