Bowens Coaches


Who we are

Bowens are a family owned business that has been operating since 1928 with an extensive history and experience within the coach market. Operating to the highest standards within the industry, we pride ourselves on putting customer satisfaction and safety first.

Nationwide Pick ups

With customers up and down the country, we are very much a nationwide operator. From lands end to the Scottish Highlands we pick -up groups from all over the country for their holidays and trips in the UK and aboard. Our flexible approach makes booking a coach trip with Bowens as easy and stress free for a customer as possible.

Tour Operators

We have years of worth of experience carrying out our touring work for various operators across the UK. We fully understand the importance of things such as communication, presentation and running on time. We pride ourselves on getting the small things right, so our customers return from their holiday ready to book another.

Schools, colleges and universities

Safety is paramount with Bowens, so all our drivers are fully DBS checked and our vehicles go through a rigorous 4- weekly safety inspection. As a family run firm we know the concerns most parents and teachers express when looking for coach hire. We treat all our vehicles the same way- if it’s good enough for our children it will good enough for yours. We have decades of experience carrying school and university groups all over the UK and abroad. From concerts and events, to a fortnight in the alps on a skiing holiday you can be sure yours in safe hands with Bowens.

Group Travel

We know all too well how stressful it can be trying to organise a group daytrip or holiday. Bowens have a vast amount of experience tailor making group travel itineraries and organising trips and holidays for our groups. From social clubs to dance groups, retirement clubs to company days out why not give us a call to see how we can help with your next coach requirement.

Our Drivers and your safety

As already touched on above the most important factor for a coach company should be the safety of passengers on-board. Here at Bowens we take this extremely seriously. Our vehicles are put through a 4-weekly safety inspection that goes above and beyond what is normally expected by the DVSA. Our drivers are enhanced DBS checked and go through an extensive introduction course prior to be driving one of our coaches. You will always find them well presented, friendly and always put your needs first.
