Compass Coach Travel
A small passenger transport business based in Bangor, County Down. We aim to set the highest standards in small coach safety, comfort and service. Currently we are working with a luxury 16-seater Mercedes-Benz coach.
We offer a wide range of coach travel services in the County Down area and beyond, with the option of door-to-door service or central pick up.
Group Coach Hire
We are happy to take your group to that special social occasion, concert or dinner. If required our driver will turn up in full chauffeur uniform to add that special je ne sais quoi to the occasion! If you're entertaining at home, why not ...give your guests a real night out by arranging a door-to-door service for them?
Or if it's a sports outing, a trip for a special interest group, or even an airport transfer, your driver will be in less formal attire but still smartly dressed to make the day feel special. Going cross-channel? Talk to us.
Are you a tour guide? Book Compass Coach Travel and you'll get a classroom on wheels with full audio-visual facilities including laptop plug-in.
Brand YOU . . .
And if you really want to push the boat out and pin your colours to the mast, why not arrange for our coach to carry your corporate livery or group name and logo - that will certainly mark you out from the crowd!
. . . . or incognito
As all signage is removable, you can travel without any markings at all on the coach.
Solve those niggling wedding transport problems in one! Hire our wedding coach for the day. We'll take the bridesmaids to the beauticians, collect and deliver the flowers and corsages and collect your overseas guests from their hotel. We'll transfer guests from the ceremony to the reception, giving them a short sight-seeing tour on the way. And we'll shuttle guests home when your dream day is over. Leave it all to our uniformed chauffeur. Oh, yes, and how about commissioning a wedding bell livery for the coach with the happy couple's names emblazoned on the side?
Weekday getaway trips are organised for those who have shrugged off the shackles of daily toil. Destinations include stately homes, beautiful gardens, craft centres, shopping outlets, historic sites, special events, behind-the-scene tours, natural history visits, industrial heritage sites, etc. Where entry fees are charged, special concessions are often negotiated and Gadabout members treated as VIPs. Gadabouts brings a new vibrancy to the idea of 'a day here and a day there' - have a holiday every week!
Our Culture Club takes North Downers who appreciate the finer things in life to theatres, opera, concerts, talks, exhibitions and other cultural events in the greater Belfast area. Travel is comfortable and convenient and the company convivial. Take away the hassle of driving and parking or of public transport timetables. Chill out on the way there. Mellow out on the way home with your new friends and fellow-travellers. Oh, yes - and enjoy the culture in between!
Coastal and Country Explorer
Aimed at both the visitor to our shores and the native / local who wants to see and understand more of our native land, our Coastal and Country Explorer coach travels scheduled weekly routes to some of the most beautiful and interesting, but often overlooked, parts of our province. Saint Patrick's Trail, the Mourne Mountains, the Ards Peninsula and Strangford Lough are just some of the areas visited. These journeys of exploration open up and bring to life the history, culture, crafts and natural resources which abound in these areas.
On-board audio-visual presentations interpret for the traveller what they are seeing around them. Places of interest are well-spaced along the route so there are no long distances between stops. Walking distances are minimal although there are opportunities to stretch the legs if desired.
No transport of your own? Coastal and Country Explorer is the answer to your transport and accessibility problems. Have your own car? Give it the day off and travel with us. Forget maps, navigation and guide books; understand what you're looking at; benefit from discounted entry fees (where these apply); have a drink without worries; enjoy the freedom!
* Pick-ups are in central Belfast and en route. Check our website for details.

We are aiming to finance the purchase of a bus for the patients of Kiwoko Hospital in Uganda. If you get pleasure from the services we provide, you may wish to join us in supporting this worthwhile cause. (Charity no. XN77395)
