Hiring a Timebus:
Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Why?

Timebus has been in business since 1987 and we specialise in private hires.

Where?

We are based near the Capital, and our buses operate within Greater London, the area close to Greater London, Hertfordshire and Buckinghamshire.

Sometimes we are able to visit Oxfordshire, Bedfordshire, Northamptonshire, Cambridgeshire, the South Coast and Hampshire; typically with Routemaster Express (for travel) or Timebus Space (static) vehicles.

We can also go inside indoor exhibition centres in the West Midlands (eg NEC Birmingham, Telford International Centre, Coventry) with Timebus Space vehicles.

We hold details of the best access to over 2500 venues which we have visited over the last few years. Access for double deckers is sometimes limited by low bridges (less than 4.42 metres/ 14ft 6in high), overhanging trees, road restrictions, etc. These problems are rarely encountered in urban areas and on main roads, however.

Which?

The description of each of our vehicles includes the number of seats in each type.

To extend capacity over shorter journeys, our buses are also able to take a limited number (less than 9) of standing passengers, and shuttle trips may be feasible.

We can organise, provide and co-ordinate multi-vehicle transportation for up to 500 people at once.

How?

Every hire is different, so if you would like a quote (complete with professional drivers, and also conductors if appropriate), please contact us with details (except for fixed price packages). Our rates reflect the high quality of our vehicles and service, and the total price will depend on various factors including the amount of travelling distance (including our journey to reach you), and the hire duration.

There is no VAT applicable to our hire prices, where the primary purpose is passenger transportation.

Payments can be made by bank transfer, cheque, or the cards displayed below are accepted over the telephone. We make a small surcharge for credit (but not debit) card payments.
