Thank you to the very helpful and friendly Rob who took our children to Young Voices yesterday.

 by Hucclecote Girl's Brigade

Whilst using your service we have had several drivers and they have been fantastic every time!

 by Anonymous

Just to say thank you for providing a great coach and driver for our trip to Newquay. We can't wait for our November trip!

 by Sir Thomas Rich's School

We are currently homeward bound on our school Geography trip to Snowdonia.  We would like to pass on our thanks and praise for our driver, Wayne.  The quality of driving has been outstanding.  Additionally, his friendly personality and willingness to be as helpful and accommodating to our needs has been much appreciated.  Wayne has our highest recommendation.

 by Anonymous

Thank you for the last 5.5 years that you have safely taken my daughter to school, this is much appreciated, and we are only opting for public transport because of her timetable in sixth form and hopefully she will pass her driving test soon.

I do always promote your services to other parents.  Good luck with your business and take care.

 by Anonymous

We had your driver, Rob, at the weekend for a hen party and he was so lovely. I felt bad for him having to put up with us girls all weekend but he was brilliant!

 by Anonymous

Mandy from Bennetts Coaches, thank you for your help. We had some sick kids on the bus today. She helped us clean up as we pulled near by. Even though they all laughed when I was chucking up out the window  as I can't do sick. Hero of the Day! Thank you sooo much.

 by Anonymous

The Move to Bennetts home to school (Tewkesbury Service) was a good one - the service you have provided has been excellent!

 by Milestones School

He was the most amazing guy ever, very friendly, so patient with the staff and children. I needed to slightly change the times and he went above and beyond to accommodate us I couldn’t have asked for a more perfect guy, he was so happy, bubbly and positive, amazing with the children and just so genuine. He helped out so much getting involved with any heavy lifting of equipment and all along being so polite. We will definitely come to Bennetts first after such an amazing experience.

 by Anonymous

We have been very impressed with the service that your company has provided, our daughter has been on your school service since Year 7 and has only stopped as she now drives herself. It has been very reliable and all the drivers really helpful. Thank you for always being so efficient and helpful with any queries, and for always keeping us informed, especially during all the Covid disruption.

 by National Express

Hello. I never do this but I wanted to let you know how much I appreciated your driver yesterday.
It was early morning, but he was 'chirpy' in a fun way, considerate and professional. Handled one particular situation with care and kindness. I hope folk are as kind to him. Thank you!

 by Peter
Location: Birmingham

Fantastic driving and customer service on the 444 on Saturday.

I can see that both are relatively new to the National Express network with Bennetts, but you couldn't tell!

Both were ultra-professional, warm and friendly throughout, and did excellent jobs of getting the good people of Cheltenham and Gloucester to and from London. My friends and I were so impressed!

 by Anonymous

Just a note to say thank you to yourself and the driver for the coach we had yesterday.  On time, professional and friendly driver and all went very smoothly.  Great service!

 by Ness

We just wanted to say that our driver today was amazing and the teachers have all commented on how lovely he was.  Please can you pass on our thanks to him for his cheerful, helpful assistants today.

 by School Business Manager
Location: Stroud

Just a quick note to say how wonderful the driver was who took the Y5/6 pupils to Boreatton Park September 2021, polite, helpful and happy. Please also thank the other driver who returned our pupils for his professionalism, humour, and helpfulness. Can you please make a note how impressed we were with the level of service, both drivers there and back are a credit to Bennetts.

 by Anonymous

May I say how efficient you are (...) It's a pleasure to deal with such a professional company.

 by Anonymous

Timings were perfect, the coach and driver were superb. Tricky manoeuvring conditions but this didn’t stop your driver getting our guests as close to the hotel as possible.

Thank you so much, Karen

I just wanted to say thank you for the very professional and reliable service provided by your company over the last 6 years taking our son to Crypt School.

 by Ian and Marlene

Just a short note to say we thoroughly enjoyed the trip to Weston on Wednesday, despite the changeable weather. The driver was superb and we will no doubt book some future trips with you.

 by Parent

Thanks again to the school drivers. Starting getting the bus to school for a long journey was a big thing for our daughter, let alone this year and Bennett’s have done a brilliant job at helping her (and us) feel reassured.

 by Parent

I just wanted to pass on some positive feedback. My son has said how helpful and friendly the Driver of DR1 is - he actually missed him when he was on holiday! I thought it would be nice for the driver to know he has made a positive difference in this difficult year.

 by Parent

I would just like to say that my son has been on your DR 1 service from Woodmancote to STRS for the last 2 school years. We have been really pleased with the service especially during these trying times. My son says the driver is always very chirpy, pleasant with the children & his Friday afternoon speeches are apparently eagerly awaited each week. Thought you would like to know how your driver is appreciated.

 by Parent

Thanks for keeping the school transport going through such a hard time and running the timetables/admin etc.  It's been appreciated by our family and thank you to the drivers.

 by Nick

Many thanks again to your team and your drivers for such an excellent service!

 by Anonymous

We just wanted to say a big thank you to you (for organising) and both drivers for driving us today - they were both fab, really helpful and friendly.

Thanks again and take care.

 by Neil

Just returned from a lovely, relaxing day out at Weston.  The coach was immaculate, the driver very polite.  Looking forward to booking our third trip with you soon! 5 stars!

 by Anonymous

My friend and I really enjoyed our trip to Bournemouth on June 3rd. A huge thank you to our driver for a smooth safe journey.

 by Anonymous

Many thanks for your school service over the last few years - all three of my daughters have benefitted from it, and we have always been very impressed with how well the system works!

 by Anonymous

Many thanks for the excellent school service your good selves have provide over the past three years, especially during these difficult times.

 by Anonymous

I would like to thank all at Bennetts Coaches for the fantastic school transport service you have provided to my two sons over the last nine years, always reliable, safe and friendly drivers who the young people grow to recognise and trust.

I wish you all success for the future

 by Anonymous

May we take this opportunity to thank you and your colleagues for the service and attentiveness over the years and wish you well for the future.

 by Anonymous

I just wanted to send a message to say thank you for the refund for our school bus pass, but also for everything you have done throughout this difficult time. I feel that all communication from you had been timely and clear and that has been very reassuring. I have always felt my son has been safe and well looked after on the bus and know that you are an efficient company, but that has been particularly important at this time.

Thank you again, it is not only Bennetts but your personal helpfulness and the positive tone of your emails that helps.

 by Anonymous

I have been delighted with the flawless school service provided, it also helps me continue my work as a key worker.

Please pass my thanks onto the team.

 by Anonymous

May I take this opportunity to say a massive thank you for the wonderful (school) bus service that has been provided to our daughter over the years it has always felt safe, timely and the bus drivers have been great.

Much appreciated.

 by Anonymous

We are incredibly grateful that you are continuing to offer this service – it will make our lives indescribably easier. A massive thank you to yourself and all your drivers for continuing to work and offer this service throughout these most challenging of times. Stay safe and well.

It has been a pleasure utilizing your school service for the past seven years and I can't thank you enough for the dedication and commitment of all your staff.

 by Anonymous

I’d like to thank you for the excellent service provided by Bennett’s over the past 5 years or so.  You’ve always been incredibly reliable.

 by Anonymous

Can I just say that my son has been using your school service since he started Tommies in year 7 and we have had a fantastic and reliable service from you all. Thank you so much.

 by Anonymous

To the Bennetts Team

I would like to say a big thank you to your driver.  My daughter has been coming home saying how lovely he is as a driver for the Denmark Road school service. He is always cheery and even to me when dropping my daughter off last minute at the bus stop in the morning. So, thank you and well done – it’s so lovely to have great service from a friendly driver. We appreciate you!

 by Parent
Location: Tewkesbury

Please could I thank the bus driver of the school bus from Tewkesbury to STRS, who this morning was super helpful and kind to my son. He went above and beyond the call of duty and it was very much appreciated.

Suffice to say, my son will be packing his bag the night before, religiously, from now on!

Thanks again, Best Wishes

I just wanted to send a quick email to say thank you for transporting my class and I to the Lyceum theatre. Our driver was brilliant! He navigated his way through a terribly busy London with care and precision and also met us outside the theatre after the performance and walked us back to the coach! Please pass on my thanks to him! A massive thank you to you and your team for providing comfortable and reliable transport for a range of our school trips. I look forward to travelling with you again in the future.

Thank you to Bennetts for the transportation which you've provided for our daughter over the past few years - she always enjoyed getting the bus and it helped her meet and build friendships - so we have fond memories of the school travel.

Really impressive video & set up for Covid.  Thank you so much to you all at Bennett’s for keeping our children safe, term after term. It really is appreciated.

 by Anonymous

Your communication has been absolutely fantastic and the video is brilliant. Especially for my young year 7 boy who has never been on a bus by himself.  Thanks so much. It's so appreciated and your effort and efficiency hasn't gone unnoticed.

We just wanted to say thank you so much for the minibus last night. The driver was real star putting up with us lot!

Regarding our trip, we wanted to say thank you very much to the driver as he was very kind and helpful.

They also enjoyed the ‘posh’ bus with the leather seats!

Thanks again.

 by Parent
Location: Gloucester

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.

 by Parent
Location: Gloucestershire

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.

 by Anonymous
Location: Gloucestershire

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.

 by Anonymous

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.

“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.”

 by Oakwood Primary School

Going the extra mile. - Thank you to all the drivers and the operations manager who arranged everything, spoke to the theatre and managed to get us all there on time. Brilliant! Thank you.

Dear Staff at Bennetts ,

We would like to say a huge thank you from all of the children and staff for making our visit to the Everyman Theatre run so smoothly. We really appreciate the efforts you went to with laminating the coach signs and following our very complex requests. Everyone had a wonderful time and returned to school very happy!

Thank you once again.

Good afternoon,

I have been asked to email Bennetts Coaches to say “thank you” from our school.

(…) the coach driver was really kind and helpful …. Can we have him for the trip in January and March please??

Had the pleasure of travelling to Wembley today on one of your coaches, the coach was super clean inside and out, the driver was smart, friendly greeted us with a smile and funny too!! Top marks all round (apologies for the very loud excited kids at the back). I know where to come for all my future travel needs.

Thank you.

To you all,

I would like to thank you very much for the superb coach which you allocated for our trip to the Black Country Living Museum. It really was immaculate and comfortable, and of course the driver was professional as always.

Again thank you very much!

 by Anonymous

Just a short note to say thank you for the service on 19.10.19. We have had very good feedback from the passengers, who were impressed with the disabled lift. I don't think the wheelchair user had travelled on a coach since his injury many years ago. It enabled them to have a great day out.

Dear Team,

On behalf of RVS Abbeydale chatter coffee I would like to thank both drivers who took us to Hampton Court Castle last Tuesday. They dealt with the road closure, detour and then our lost passenger with a wonderful relaxed and cheerful attitude and the club has decided we would love to have the two of them on our future outings with you

Best wishes and please pass on our thanks to them.

On behalf of 'Cheltenham Heart To Heart' I would like to thank you for your excellent service yesterday.

As usual your coach was immaculate and the driver went out of his way to be helpful, which was much appreciated. Members commented on how safe they felt, especially when there were some quite narrow roads for him to negotiate, not to mention large tractors! This is the third time we have used one of your coaches and we are always impressed with the service we receive. We look forward to booking more trips with you in the future.

 by Alison

This is just a quick note to say thank you once again to everyone at Bennetts Coaches for your efficient work. Your communication to parents is excellent.

A very big thank you to the driver on our school run. My children always say he’s the best bus driver!

Have a lovely summer and see you in September.

 by Emma

Thank you for organising our coach for Saturday. Everything went perfectly and your driver arrived in plenty of time and was really helpful & friendly throughout. Please pass on our thanks to him.

We will definitely use Bennetts again if we organise another event and will recommend to our friends.

I’d like to take this opportunity to thank you and all at Bennett’s coaches for taking us to our semi-final at the weekend which we won and now need your services for the final on the 5th may to Twickenham. Your drivers were a credit to your company and the coach was a pleasure to travel on. Your driver who we had was fantastic and we would love to have him for the final if your happy to take us.

 by EDF Energy

Thank you, the trip was great, the driver was kind and kept us informed the whole time. We were very happy with the driver and will definitely use you again!

 by Anonymous

We just wanted to say a huge thank you for all you and your colleagues have done over the last four years ensuring our son gets to school!

Your kindness and thoughtfulness has been really appreciated. Whether it was a lost wallet/bus pass (found), travelling with a broken knee or catching a bus with a friend on the odd occasion. Thank you!

 by Catherine Felthams
Location: Tewkesbury

I have been meaning to say how happy I have been with the Tewkesbury to Tommies service. My son started in Yr 7 in September 2018 and I really value the fact that he has the same driver, who takes him there and back each day. Such consistency is a real asset. My older son has a different bus company for his journey. It is clear from the family conversations that my son's experience with your driver each day is a much more valued one. Please do pass on my thanks and appreciation as my son says he is one of the kindest people. As a parent, knowing that your child is in such safe hands and with friendly care for the bus journey to and from school, makes it worth every penny.

 by St Peter’s Catholic High School

Thank you for helping me out when it could have been a disaster! You saved the day.

 by John

Thanks for the great service you provided over the last couple of days.

Both drivers were great and we would be very happy to use you again.

 by Jean Butt

Thank you for sending us a coach to drive us down to Wiltshire last week! Weather was atrocious – blinding rain and very heavy wind and the motorway was quite an experience in this sort of weather! However, the driver held that coach on the road magnificently – after all I do realise he is one of your most experienced and long-serving drivers!

Journey went smoothly and perfectly. Driver was very smart, extremely helpful and polite to all passengers. He took great care of us all. (We are a mainly elderly group) Vehicle was spotless, warm and relaxing.

 by Woodlands Park

I just wanted to say that your driver was absolutely fantastic, he was most helpful with everyone. Checking that we had all our belongings and helping us on and off the coach.

It was also a very comfortable trip, lovely coach. We do love Bennetts and use you a lot, but this driver really is a credit to your company.

 by Elisabeth

Good morning,


I would like to thank you for the smooth and safe rides with your driver, who was very competent, patient and friendly throughout the week.


We enjoyed our time on the very clean and comfortable coach very much.


We were all more than pleased with your services.

The journey was very comfortable and the London traffic went un-noticed as our driver negotiated the route to our hotel in rush hour. The driver was very patient with our various pick up points and soon had a handle on the best way to pack all our percussion instruments into the lockers. He soon became part of the team and helped make the day of the contest stress free.

We booked Bennetts to take a group to and from our Christmas event in London. Bennetts were on time, sent a really helpful and cheerful driver who did not mind making food and comfort stops for us, and dropped off and picked up right at the door in the centre of London. The bus was in very good condition.

 by Claire Brookes

The journey was highly enjoyable. The driver was well presented, polite and professional. The coach was immaculate and very comfortable.

 by Gloucester and District Model Boat Club

Our Club had a splendid and comfortable day trip to London. The coach arrived early at our agreed departure point. The driver was very helpful and stopped at Oxford services for a short break as we requested. The entire trip went exactly to plan and 52 members of our club had a great day out at a very reasonable price in a very clean and comfortable coach. We have used Bennetts for years and we will continue to use them in future.

 by Jenny Griffiths
Location: Gloucester

Really good trip on the Gloucester rubgy coach, only issue was restarting the coach after we stopped at the services but it was fine and reassuring to see the breathaliser used.
