Business overview

We will be pleased to beat your best quote

We are a family run mini bus hire business, based in Hertfordshire. Trevor and Janet Primett first started Basic Travel mini bus hire fifteen years ago in Hoddesdon in Hertfordshire with just a single mini-bus.

Our aim was to provide low cost reliable chaffeured travel thats where the name Basic Travel came from.

Since then we have grown substantially and now all of our mini buses for hire are mercedes, offering comfort to our customers.

Although travelling in our mini buses is now much more luxurious we have maintained our basic principles and still strive to provide a high quality, reliable service.

Fantastic, Friendly, Fun drivers
I booked basic travel for my wedding day in July of this year (2015).
Their prices may be basic but the service you get isn’t!
Both drivers where friendly, they couldn’t have done more for us on our special day.
I would certainly use basic travel again without a doubt.

brilliant service

I use Basic Travel regularly for trips to the Royal Festival Hall with a local Music Group. I find the comment about rudeness hard to accept as all of the trips I have taken have been excellent and the drivers good company. I would recommend Basic Travel to anyone!

A poor experience.

The bus driver was immensely rude, only greeting the female members of our group, saying "Hello there ladies!"

It rained on the journey home, and the roof leaked for the entire journey, getting us all very wet. We brought this to the drivers attention and were simply told to "get off the bus if we didn't like it, it's a lot wetter out there".

A terrible service, we wont ever use them again and I encourage you to look else where. Basic Travel may be cheap, but you get what you pay for.
