Essential Entertainment for Travelling by Coach

Summer is finally here folks, and with it, comes the entertainment. Planning a trip to Alton Towers? What about visiting Chester for some Roman history? Wherever you’re going, whoever you’re going with, you’re going to need some entertainment for the journey. After booking your coach travel, have a look below for our favourite ways of making a long journey seem a little shorter.

Thank you for the music

Few things beat a good MP3 player or Smartphone for a long trip up the motorway. Load up your favourite tunes and you’re set to go. If you prefer spoken words to songs, there are plenty of free podcasts available on the internet. Why not download the latest Bugle for a funny look at this week’s news? Failing that, Radio 4 offers dozens of programmes in podcast format every week.

Have I got amusement for you

A quiz is a great way of getting everyone involved. Prepare some questions before boarding, bring along a suitable prize and most importantly, make it fun. Consider adapting a panel show from TV to account for the coach theme for maximum entertainment, such as Would I Lie To You or Never Mind The Buzzcocks. You may find that some of your friends are as funny as the comedians that appear on these programmes.

Reading time

An old reliable stalwart, reading has provided passengers with entertainment since books were first invented. We like to imagine Queen Nefertiti crossed the River Nile with a scroll in her hands. Fast forward more than 2,000 years and books are now even more portable with the invention of e-readers and tablets. These let you take your entire book collection with you on a long journey – perfect if you’ve been known to get through a story quicker than anticipated.

Double Decker Bus Hire from The Big Coach Company

Our bus is maintained to the same high standard as expected with all The Big Coach Company vehicles. We take great pride in our appearance and your comfort, that is why our vehicles are fully valeted on a regular basis. It has recently seen a vast amount of engineering work to bring it up to our high standard of vehicle maintenance.
