CoachMarque members fully understand the strains and pressures placed upon teachers and members of educational establishments to ensure the safety of their children.
By meticulously auditing our members and demanding they adhere to strict criteria, you will know that your children are in good hands - and are always a priority. In effect, all members of CoachMarque are guaranteed to promote best practice in educational school travel as standard. CoachMarque members fully understand the strains and pressures placed upon teachers and members of educational establishments to ensure the safe transport of their children. The majority of our members have defined policy documents regarding access to school premises and the safe boarding and drop-off of the students. Our Drivers are also well versed in instructing student groups in the use of seatbelts and safe movement around the coach and when this is appropriate. They are also invariably trained in the highest levels of customer service.
We work closely with all the school tour operators within The School Travel Forum (STF) to provide training for their transport managers and coach contractors. We are aware of the administrative difficulties of working with educational establishments in terms of payment schedules and budgets and, as independent businesses ourselves, will work with school tour operators to provide flexibility and value.
CoachMarque companies are experienced to destinations all across from the Channel ports to the far flung corners of Eastern Europe. Many organise their own tour programmes to these destinations so they know the routes, the attractions and the safe coach park and drop off points.
Most CoachMarque operators are also BUSK accredited so a combination of STF and CoachMarque is your guarantee that the coach company with whom you are entrusting your students is 100% professional, independently audited and safe.
