Chalkwell Coaches of Sittingbourne has said its coach hire bookings are booking noticeably far ahead, with some schools and groups booking trips as far as July 2017.
“I think there is now a stronger realisation than ever among customers that only by booking early will they get the size of coach – and the number of coaches – they require for their days out,” said Jenny Barham, Chalkwell coach hire and tours specialist.
“No organiser of a day out wants to be disappointed and with a growth in demand for coach hire I believe early bookings will certainly become the norm.
“Junior and primary schools in particular are anxious not to let children down when demand for private hire is high and they appreciate it is now becoming a case of first come first served.
“If a school or group wants two or three coaches for a day out to the seaside, wild life parks or castles they realise it is no good leaving the booking to the last minute when there is less chance of availability.”
