Home to Disneyland Paris and some of Europe's most picturesque towns and villages, France is a go-to destination for couples, families and, indeed, groups. And it's now more affordable to dart across the channel to one of the many holiday hotspots with our minibus hire and coach hire services, including coach tours to multiple places in France.
Coach tours, whether you're off to the capital or way down south to the French Riviera, are an incredibly affordable and efficient way to travel throughout France and, wider-speaking, Europe. Travelling by coach rather than train or plane, for instance, may take longer; however, it comes with a host of benefits that ensure a stress-free getaway.
Minibus and coach hire costs a fraction of train and plane travel if you're adventuring in a large group, and there are few limitations. You can take as much baggage as you like without having to worry about unexpected fees or the weight of your luggage, and you can stop off and stretch your legs along the way. Plus, you'll enjoy much more legroom than a plane, plus, on selected vehicles, premium amenities like high-definition audio and HD television.
Coach to Paris, France
Our bus to Paris, France, is one of the most in-demand services we offer. It's affordable and takes around six hours depending on traffic. And there's plenty of reasons to visit France's capital, too. Throughout the city, you can take in some of Europe's most iconic landmarks, including the Eiffel Tower, the Louvre Museum, and the Arc de Triomphe, plus many more.
It's the sheer abundance of culture and activity Paris has to offer that makes it not only a romantic weekend away like you may see in your favourite rom-com films, but it's also an excellent place for families to visit where the little ones can learn and practice their languages. Not to mention, Paris is abuzz with clubs and bars and excellent restaurants, which makes it a superb destination for groups, too. For food, the Bastille market is a must.
When you travel by coach to Paris, France, you can sit back and relax and enjoy the journey without having to worry about wasting time waiting around in airports or on train platforms in the cold or, sometimes, the burning heat. Our minibuses and coaches are fitted with air conditioning to ensure you're comfortable throughout your journey. They also include audio capability, including speakers that play aloud as well as headphone jacks you can take advantage of to listen to whichever film or television show we're showing during your journey.
Your bus or coach driver will pick you up from a location that suits you, load your luggage, and you'll be away. Throughout your journey, there will be at least two scheduled stops that you can use as a toilet break or grab a cup of coffee or a bite to eat.

Coach Holidays to Disneyland Paris
If there's anything better than Paris itself, it's Disneyland Paris. Every year, millions of people from all over the world flock to the Magic Kingdom, where you can live like a prince or princess. Our qualified coach drivers have been taking excited families and groups to Disneyland Paris ever since CoachScanner launched, and they enjoy it every time.
As our coach holidays to Disneyland Paris are so popular, we've ensured our drivers and vehicles adhere to all UK and EU regulations, so you can rest assured that your family is in safe hands. Better still, with so many journeys we embark upon having children on board, from family holidays to school trips, we make sure that all our drivers are not only happy to work with children but have an appreciation for their unique excitement and humour, so the journey is especially magical.
Our coach hire service is available from every major UK city and takes around six hours, which is only a couple more hours than it takes on the train or plane. Better still, when you travel by coach or minibus to Disneyland Paris, you don't need to worry about luggage allowances and extra costs; what we quote you is precisely what you'll pay.
When you get to Disneyland, you can stay in one of Disney's themed, all-inclusive hotels where the magic never stops. Your coach driver will drop you off right outside the gate, too, so you don't need to waste time trying to find where you need to go or getting on public transport.
When you're in the parks, there are hundreds of sights and activities to enjoy, including exhilarating rides, costume experiences, enormous mazes, puzzles, arcades, and much more. When you get peckish, you can dine at one of Disney's dozen restaurants and then continue the fun all day and night long.

Coach Hire to the South of France
If you're looking for a luxury escape for couples or a group, or even if you're a film crew or students wanting to venture to the world-renowned Cannes Film Festival, our coach and minibus hire services will save you some pennies.
You can travel by coach from the UK to the south of France, where you can lie back in the sunshine and enjoy the pristine beaches along the coastline within a day.
During the height of summer, the French Riviera is a bustling place to be, and it can be costly. However, if you travel at a quieter time of year, such as September and October, you can enjoy a relatively affordable getaway that'll have you feeling like a Hollywood actor as you sip cocktails.
Flights to the most popular destinations in the south of France, such as Cannes and St Tropez, can be incredibly expensive and include connections. However, our coach hire services take a day and will set you back a fraction of the price. Better still, with CoachScanner, you can bring along as much luggage as you like and, throughout the journey, enjoy plush reclining seats with plenty of legroom, plus air conditioning, audio, and television.
For the best price, we recommend travelling in groups of 20 or more. To get a quote, contact us on 0203 823 6988.
Other Destinations to Visit in France
Visiting France's capital and the notorious Disneyland Paris is all well and good; however, this beautiful country has so much more to offer, too, including hidden gems where you can seep into history and soak in pristine architecture. All these destinations are renowned for their food and drink, too.
The French Riviera includes some the wealthiest areas of France in the south of the country. It runs along the entire southern coastline and includes holiday hotspots such as Cannes, Nice, Antibes, Saint-Tropez, Menton, and many more. The whole stretch is famed for its crystal-like bays and enormous yachts, and exquisite dining, as well as various hilltop views, traditional cafes and, most importantly, white sand beaches. Often, our drivers take groups on coach holidays to the French Riviera where, over several days or a week, they drive along the entire coastline and see everything.
Just outside the French Riviera is Marseille, which is quieter and less expensive. However, it's still a premium holiday destination. During your time in Marseille, you can visit the picturesque old port and then walk up to the city's highest point, Notre-Dame de la Garde, which is crowned by a golden statue of the Virgin Mary. Off the coast, there is the Château d'If, which is a 16th-century island castle and former prison. If you enjoy hiking, there's nothing quite like walking atop the Massif des Calanques, a stretch of terrain running from Marseille to the east.
If you're set on visiting Paris but can spare a day or two outside the city, we highly recommend you venture to Versailles. If you're planning a coach holiday to France with us, we may even be able to arrange for your driver to stop off in Versailles on the way to the capital. When in the historical city, you can explore the Palace of Versailles, a gilded 18th-century palace straight out a picture book, and a variety of other historical estates. The city also boasts a medley of galleries and museums focusing on the French Revolution, and numerous public parks and gardens.
Love a glass of wine? There's nowhere quite like Bordeaux. The city is situated to the south of France in the west, close to the Spanish border, and is another of France's city’s steeped in history. The pace of the city is calm and relaxed, and there's plenty to see. There are museums, theatres, galleries, plus much more. As Bordeaux is on the edge of the Parc Naturel Regional des Landes de Gascogne, an expansive national park, within a short drive you could be hiking and gazing out over picture lakes dotted throughout the park. The Garonne river also runs through the centre of the city.
South of Bordeaux and situated on the Garonne river is the old city of Toulouse, which has a rich medieval history; the architecture in Toulouse is particularly distinct. Also running through the city is the Canal du Midi, which makes it an excellent place to start or finish a canal holiday. Many of our drivers take groups and families down to Toulouse and then pick them up from a different location, further along the canal, for the return journey. If you're set on staying in Toulouse, we recommend visiting the medieval cathedral, as well as the ex-Roman temple of Notre-Dame de la Daurade.
Minibus Hire with Driver
For smaller groups, we operate a London to France minibus hire service that is ideal for groups of up to 15 people. Our minibuses have less room for luggage; however, they enjoy the same amenities as all our other vehicles, including an experienced and fully qualified driver. Other amenities include comfort-enhancing features such as air conditioning, cushioned seating, a generous amount of legroom and, for some vehicle types, built-in television and audio capability.
Unlike our coach hire services, our minibuses are fully adaptable for disabled passengers, too. We often work with schools with children with special requirements, as well as other care facilities, to provide professional travel services when travelling abroad. We understand the precautions to take when working with disabled passengers, including children and guarantee a comfortable, stress-free journey to your destination of choice. What’ll it be? Disneyland Paris, perhaps?
