Another Busy Year at Glorious Goodwood

Reflecting on the past week, we can now safely establish that it has been another successful year at Glorious Goodwood! It has also been the busiest year to date, with almost our entire luxury fleet being booked out for luxury and VIP requirements. With all the highlights of the events being aided by the superb weather this year and the quality of our vehicles, all of our clients left wonderful feedback about our company and their experiences with us, all of which can be found on our minibus reviews website.

From the initial events at the beginning of the week to the final penultimate race, we have supplied luxury, VIP and executive vehicles for both corporate business clients looking to entertain their personal clients and staff, as well as private hire bookings for individual groups looking to enjoy the sights Glorious Goodwood has to offer.

However, just because the events have come to an end for this year does not by any means suggest that clients aren’t looking to secure additional bookings for next years races. We have already had many enquiries almost immediately after the events, but have also secured a number of bookings for Royal Ascot 2016.

With a new arrival to our fleet, our brand new luxury Mercedes Benz minibus will definitely be a high priority choice for anybody looking to arrive to the events next year in style. We would recommend booking early to secure your desired vehicle by contacting us for an enquiry via email at info@novabussing.co.uk or by calling us on 0800 6444 118. Alternatively, you can fill in our easy to use online quote form for a quick response within office hours.

Brand New Coach At Nova Bussing

With the year off to a fantastic start, the highlights at Nova Bussing continue to arise with the arrival of our brand new 2015 luxury coach!

So far we have already secured a large number of bookings for this vehicle, which are now confirmed and awaiting departure for numerous dates. Among these private hire bookings, we have also taken multiple luxury, executive and VIP requirements for large corporate events, as well as bookings from international clients requesting a variety of day trips and multiple day tour itineraries.

As a respected and reputable luxury minibus and coach operator, we aim to provide only the best vehicles for our clients ensuring they receive new, reliable and stand-out vehicles when booking with us. We are continually updating our fleet of minibuses and coaches throughout the year, looking to purchase the most presentable, economically-friendly and fuel efficient coaches possible.

To keep within our expectations, our new coach is both professional and luxurious, including some of the latest attributes available within the industry such as; large full leather seating with reclining features, 4G Wi-Fi, fresh-water toilet/washroom, tea and coffee making facilities, full air conditioning/climate control, rear air suspension and brand new safety features that meet the latest travel requirements.

Professional Drivers – Luxury Minibus Hire

As mentioned in an earlier Nova Bussing blog, ‘Luxury Self-Drive Minibus Hire‘, we discussed the availability of luxury self-drive minibuses. As far as we are aware, there are few, if any, luxury self-drive providers in England. This is due to a combination of vast insurance costs and general administration requirements needed to get the vehicle road-ready. Therefore, hiring a luxury minibus with all of the latest features is only half of what you should be expecting to receive.

Professional and fully qualified drivers are essential in completing the luxury minibus package. In our eyes, a luxury minibus driver should be a responsible individual with a honed experience in the minibus/coaching industry and a vast knowledge of the road.

As would you expect to turn up to an interview in a presentable fashion, the same applies for a luxury minibus driver. We ensure that our clients are met by a polite, friendly and respectable driver; someone who is ready to meet the needs of the client and provide an expected service during the journey. First appearances are crucial when reassuring a client about their booking decision, therefore our drivers always arrive on time and in a presentable manor; clean shaven, pressed shirt, tie, suit trousers and suitable footwear. At the end of the day, our drivers are there to reflect the intentions of our company. By turning up in a consistent company uniform, we can be sure clients gain the right impression; especially when multiple drivers are assigned to a single booking.

We undertake a large amount of corporate bookings and private VIP requirements, therefore it is our responsibility to ensure business remains discrete and professional at all times. We pay our drivers more than the average and therefore expect our drivers to be above that of the average minibus/coach driver; providing a service that consists of discretion, punctuality and most importantly professionalism.

To summarise, a professional luxury minibus driver should provide a service that clients can relax and feel at ease for the duration of the journey. They should be responsible and have the correct etiquette; wanting to meet the requirements of the passengers. Knowledge of the route and the roads they will be taking are essential also, especially knowing second routes and other alternatives when faced with traffic jams and accidents.

All of our drivers are fully qualified, professional and knowledgeable, undergoing  regular training schemes and license checks throughout their employment. In addition to this, our drivers undergo CPC training each year, ensuring that they meet the correct standards for commercial driving.

Luxury Minibus Hire for Golf Tours

Golf tours are very popular for us, with tours taking place throughout the year. Being based in the South of England, there are many very prestigious golf courses that attract the attention of golf tour enthusiasts from all over the world, making luxury transport very popular throughout the seasons.

We have worked with many golf travel agents over the years, with players from Europe and America flying into London for golf  holidays. This year the Open Golf Championship returns to the home of golf at St Andrew’s in July 2015. We have already taken several bookings for golf tours, which also include a visit to St Andrew’s to see some world class golfers in action.

Depending on the size of the party, we would recommend certain vehicles that would be perfect for the amount of equipment being transported.

Our VIP minibuses are highly appropriate for small golf groups of around 4 – 8 people, as they include large boot space, lots of room internally, many luxury features. These vehicles also include large reclining leather seats, full air conditioning and black tinted windows.

For larger groups of passengers, from 12 – 16 people, we would recommend our luxury 22 seater coaches. These include all the features of our luxury and VIP minibuses, but with extra boot space for clubs and bags. The luxury coaches also have tea and coffee making facilities and a toilet/washroom.

In 2003 the Open Golf Championship took place at Royal St George’s in Kent, which was an extremely busy time for us. Many golfers enjoy visiting the open championship golf courses and playing the courses that they watch on the TV.

Other popular courses in Kent that we would normally take people to are below:

Popular Kent Golf Courses:

  • Royal St George’s (The Open Championship Course 2011)
  • Royal Cinque Ports (Open Championships in 1909 and 1920)
  • Chart Hills Golf Club (Designed by Sir Nick Faldo)
  • London Club Golf Course (World Match Play Championship Course 2014)
  • Littlestone Golf course (The Open Championship Qualifying Course 2011)

Some groups plan much longer trips, touring the rest of the UK. As well as touring across England, golfers also enjoy playing some of the fine Scottish courses during their trip. Some clients like to work their way up to Scotland playing courses along the way, while others prefer to fly direct. We have many connections across the UK and have provided for Scottish tours on a number of occasions.
