Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update

Updated 4.8.2020

Dear Customers

A significant amount of work has taken place behind the scenes over the past few months to ensure we were able to safely re-open our depot on 1 July 2020.  Our Covid-19 risk assessment is in place and staff have been completing additional safety and refresher training prior to returning to work and taking to the road.

Our depot and coaches are rigorously cleaned and sanitised with the enhanced cleaning regimes and fogging processes we have put in place.  It is fantastic to see members of the Bennetts team going above and beyond during the course of their work to ensure our passengers and their work colleagues feel as safe as possible during these times.

We are delighted to be operating an increasing number of National Express services from Gloucester to London, as well duplication work and rail replacement across the country.  We recommend booking your National Express tickets in advance by visiting:

We continue to take bookings for our private hire fleet of coaches.  In order to comply with social distancing, we are offering these out with a reduced seating capacity, however, we will continue to monitor government guidance, and will increase the capacity on our vehicles as soon as we are safely able to do so.

For a free no obligation coach hire quotation, please call us on 01452 527809, or email us at:

Our reliable and efficient Home to School Transport services are in high demand again this year and we are continuing to accept and process applications for September 2020.  Please email: to enquire about availability on our school routes.

We look forward to you travelling with us again soon.

from our Customers

"I would like to take the opportunity to thank your staff for the excellent service that you have delivered this year.  Communication is excellent.  The drivers have been really kind to the children and understanding that for some of them getting themselves organised for their first year has been a challenge.  From the first week in September when my son and his friends missed their stops and were driven back by their driver, finding missing bags and bringing them back to Cheltenham via your National Express service to London.  Whatever, the problem, there has always been someone willing to help.

I wish you well in continuing to provide such a great service to future families."
"I have always felt confident that my children are in safe hands travelling on your school buses, and the drivers are always extremely courteous whenever I see them.

Thanks for all your help over the years, particularly with lost lunch bags, friends travelling on the bus etc."
"May I take this opportunity to thank you and the team at Bennett’s for your efficiency and professionalism over the past 4 years that our boys have used your school service to Pate’s."
