Motts Travel are located in central Buckinghamshire, near Chequers, the country residence of the British Prime Minister. Motts frequently supply coaches for the press, when events of national or international interest take place at Chequers.

The company's fleet of modern coaches is conveniently located for work in London and the provinces.

It is possible to join tour throughout Buckinghamshire and the neighbouring counties. Regular popular excursions are made to Disney Paris - and weekend and longer breaks to Brussels, Amsterdam and Paris. The programme has been extended further through the acquisition of Essex based Crusader Holidays.


A popular programme includes regular excursions to Alton Towers and other theme parks. Events, horse races, seaside destinations, gardens and tours of scenic of specialist interest feature.



Motts Travel maintained a fleet of coaches, including doubledeckers, dedicated to transporting pop bands and their road crews throughout the UK and Europe. Luxury vehicles were equipped with the latest audio and video technology and provided on board catering facilities, toilet and washroom with bunk accommodation. Both discreet doubledeck Neoplan machines and singledeck Volvo coaches offered the anonymity and style required. Previous clients included 'Sir' Bob Geldof, The Chippendales, the Russian Opera, Iron Maiden and Oasis. This work is no longer undertaken. Motts Travel have supported the Showbus rally for many years, and supplied one of their band buses for use by the Showbus crew over the rally weekend.


Coach sizes range from small Mercedes minibuses for parties of up to 29, coaches for up to 34, but the bulk of the coach fleet are continental style 49 to 53 seat executive style Volvo and Scania coaches. The latest coaches have full disabled access for wheelchair passengers. Scania triaxle coaches seat 63, also available are new 70 seat singledeck coaches with rows of 3 and 2 seats across, ideal for school parties. All coaches are seatbelted throughout.

Motts Optare Solo

Alongside their coach fleet, Motts operated the associated Yellow Bus fleet, primarily on local contracts to the Council for the transport of school children. The doubledeck buses used are still available for hire for short journeys and are ideal for school outings, often saving the cost of hiring more than one coach. The Yellow Bus identity was replaced by Motts Travel with a fleet of smart new Optare Solo small buses. This work is no longer undertaken.
