Coach Hire Comparison teams up with Gauntlet
Bus and coach insurance specialist, Gauntlet Group, has teamed up with price comparison website, Coach Hire Comparison. The partnership is aimed at helping operators get back on the road to full post-pandemic recovery.
As part of its partner arrangement, Gauntlet is offering a ‘Call Paul’ service. Coach Hire Comparison members, with any queries relating to their insurance covers, can now call insurance guru, Paul Howley, for free advice and a ‘no-nonsense, jargon-free’ situation review.
Coach Hire Comparison customers can also receive a 10% discount on specially arranged bus and coach breakdown cover, which Gauntlet is offering through the RAC.
Gauntlet customers can join Coach Hire Comparison free-of-charge. According to the companies, signing up to the website gives an operator, on average, a £5,000 monthly income boost. The company claims it can even give an income increase of up to £85,000 per month.
Coach Hire Comparison operates a portal at which clients can upload requests for passenger transport, enabling any member of Coach Hire Comparison to pitch for the job, whether the need is for an eight-seater minibus or a 70-seat cruiser. Quotes and details are then posted on the client’s online dashboard for them to chose their preferred supplier. Using the site, members can fill in any gaps in their booking schedule. They can also tap into an Away from Base feature, which allows coaches, away from home, to take on jobs in the destination location, rather than standing idle whilst awaiting their return trip with passengers.
“Both companies are striving for the same end goal and that’s to see coach and minibus operators back on the road as much as possible, after what have been a turbulent few years” – Coach Hire Comparison, James Stokes
