What To Pack For A Long Coach Trip

Matt Crisp July 11, 2017

When you’ve got a long journey planned, after you’ve sorted out coach hire in Leeds or elsewhere, you need to think about how to keep yourself well entertained while travelling… otherwise your holiday could soon lose its lustre. There’s nothing worse than being miserable on a coach – you need to be excited about your trip away! So with that in mind, here is a checklist of items you might want to make sure you’ve included in your hand baggage.

Sleeping equipment

If you’re on a very long journey, you’re sure to want to get a bit of shuteye at some point so make sure you pack a few items that’ll help you nod off. An eye mask, ear plugs and a travel pillow are all must-pack belongings as coaches can be quite noisy. You might want to pack a blanket or a throw as well to keep you warm if needed.


For the times that you’re not asleep, you’ll want to keep yourself amused. Looking out of the window will only get you so far! Luckily, here at A Class Coach Hire, our luxury coaches come fully equipped with everything you need for entertainment, including Sky TV, media players and TV monitors, PS3s and other consoles, and WiFi – so you certainly won’t get bored!

That said, bringing your favourite book would be a good idea… and if you’re travelling in a large group, what about bringing a pack of cards each so you can all play to while away the time. Another fun idea would be to pack some photo booth props so you can take silly pictures with each other as you make your way to your final destination.


You probably won’t be able to convince the coach driver to pull over every time you want a snack, so make sure you pack enough food to keep you going. We have refrigerators on our coaches so you can bring whatever you want with you and not have to worry about it spoiling. Don’t forget to pack lots of water with you as well!

Comfy clothes

You might be planning the girls’ holiday to end all girls’ holidays, but you should try and travel in something comfortable – so don’t wear your party dress and heels on the coach! Layer your clothing so you can take something off if you’re too hot and put something on again if you feel a bit chilly. Try not to wear trousers that are too tight either, or you’ll struggle to get comfy!

Neck pillow

It can be difficult sometimes to really get comfy on a coach, so bringing a neck pillow with you would be wise. That way, if you do find yourself struggling to get the rest you need, you can bust out the pillow and really bunker down for the night.
