It is European law that seat belts must be worn at all times at your bustour in England. We comply to the seat belt regulations relating to bus and minibus services.
All of our buses carry First Aid Kits which are sealed so that we know when any items has been used. As part of the driver's daily checklist he ensures that the kit is in place and sealed. The First Aid Kit is also checked at our regular preventative maintenance inspections.
All of our buses carry fire extinguishers. These are sealed so we know it hasn't been used (or tampered with). The drivers check this daily and ensures the extinguisher is in the right position and sealed. The fire extinguisher is also checked as part of our regular preventative maintenance inspections. Additionally the driver make passengers aware of fire exits before the departure.
The maintenance of our buses is highest priority and therefore we carry out all vehicle maintenance in-house by our own service team of well-educated expert engineers. Vehicle maintenance records are maintained by our Transport Managers. As a precondition of our operators licence vehicles have to undertake preventative maintenance inspections regulary and these inspections are also carried out by our own engineers.
The company operates a defect reporting system. Our drivers generate daily bus reports and any defects and problems are identified and rectified as soon as possible.
Our buses carry a safety packs which include Hazard Warning Triangles and a High Visibility Safety Vests. The safety packs are legal requirements in some parts of Europe.
