Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update

Updated 16.6.2020

Dear Customers

Bennetts Coaches have been working hard behind the scenes to get our vehicles and depot ready to recommence coach services again just as soon as we possibly can, and we would like to thank you for your patience at this time.

We are currently working on our Covid-19 risk assessment, and this will be published on our website shortly, prior to our depot reopening for business.

Our private hire fleet of coaches will soon be available to hire again, and in order to comply with social distancing, we will initially be 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

We have implemented enhanced cleaning regimes, both on our vehicles and in all areas of our depot and in addition to this, all of our staff will receive additional training in order to keep our customers and staff as safe as possible.

We will be running a limited number of National Express services from Gloucester to London commencing on Wednesday 1 July 2020.  Please see to book your tickets in advance.

Our Home to School Transport team, although currently working on reduced staffing levels, are continuing to accept applications for September 2020 and responding to enquiries accordingly.  Please email if you require assistance.

We look forward to you travelling with us again soon.

Updated 6.4.2020

In light of recent Government guidance, Bennetts Coaches has taken the decision to temporarily close its offices and depot to both employees and the general public.

A reduced administrative team will be working remotely to answer your queries until further notice.  We would, therefore, suggest that should you need to contact Bennetts Coaches, this should be done via email wherever possible.

Please be assured we are doing everything we possibly can as a company to keep our staff and customers informed and safe until we can return to being fully operational as soon as possible.

Stay safe during these very difficult times.

We are Bennetts Coaches

Bennetts Coaches is a privately owned family company who first took to the roads of Gloucestershire in 1962. Since this time we have built an enviable reputation amongst local operators for providing a reliable and efficient service to all our customers.

We currently operate a fleet of coaches and minibuses. Due to continued investment in the fleet, the average age of our vehicles is approximately four years old. These are all maintained on site, by our own IRTEC trained engineers, at our Head Office and Depot based in Eastern Avenue, Gloucester.

from our Customers

"I just wanted to say thank you very much for this and other excellent communication re: any school bus changes. Since swapping to your service, for the first time in 3.5 years, I now have confidence that the bus will turn up on time to pick my children up but if there is any issue, I will be notified.

Thank you very much to you and team."
"Hi, thanks to the admin staff and the driver for the great service over the weekend, we would highly recommend Bennetts to anyone looking for coach hire."
"“Just to say how brilliant the school bus service is!  It has revolutionised my life, but really I wanted to say how lovely the Bus driver is to the children!  Our girls were nervous about starting to get the bus, but he made them feel so welcome and looks after them all.  So very big thanks to him.”"
