Lovely day

Coach arrived on time. Waited patiently for two stragglers. Took us to Walton on the Naze where we had a lovely day. Everyone arrived back on time wet, sandy and exhausted and slept on the way back. Thankyou to our very patient driver Dave. Booking was easy, communication was good, service was excellent. Thankyou

Day excursion

Used SMC coaches for the first time taking a group for day excursion. Coach very clean and comfortable. Only one problem, microphone not working properly and not easy to locate or use.
Driver very friendly and helpful. On time and drove very safely.
Would use again

Poor communication and questionable practice

Very poor service. Very poor communication. Staff were unhelpful. Tried to change price and conditions after non refundable deposit was paid.
To confirm that SMC is an intermediate company and this review is only in reference to THEIR service. The mini bus drivers we had were excellent, prompt, professional and helpful. The poor rating is poorly based on how unorganised, unprofessional and unhelpful they were as soon as a significant deposit was paid.

DO NOT USE THIS COMPANY! the good reviews are fake

most of the good reviews will be fake beware. 2 days before our event they emailed to say the specific coach for our party had broken down and the replacement would cost us an extra £220, its in their Ts and Cs to pay extra for replacement coaches! There are 15 other reviews with the same thing done to them obviously a sinister tactic they use to get more money from people who they know 2days before an event they'll be stranded and left with no other choice but to pay the extortionate extra fee. The email they sent to announce this change was also very suspicious as whatever simpleton staff member they got to send out the email left in the part by mistake to address per person and also accidentally spoke about two different complaints to me when I rang up not realising I was someone else. so this broken down coach specifically relating to just our party was obviously conveniently happening to all the rest of their fleet all at the same time.... convenient that.

Reliable and secure

I wanted a coach to convey 27 persons on a battlefield tour to Northern France. Not realising that this was an agency I googled 'International Coach hire Hertfordshire' what I got was SMC Coach hire and they supplied me with a superb vehicle and brilliant driver. You can trust them to get it right for you. No complaints whatsoever!
