Bus service?
Aug 2020 • Solo
Can’t possibly call them a transport service as they never arrive. Don’t know about other services but my past 4 years of catching the 69 bus from Tintern to Chepstow has been an absolute disgrace. Their website says that some services have been reduced due to Covid (fair enough) but they still advertise a (seemingly updated) bus timetable which none of the buses adhere to as they simply don’t arrive. On one occasion I was sat with a homeless man who was reliant on the bus to get to a home (he spent over 2 hours waiting for a bus with all his belongings which (shocker) never arrived. Rude drivers, expensive and unreliable. Don’t waste your time with this company.

Their days out are one of the highlights of my year.

Phil Anslow's local bus services - in particular the X1 are first class, but even better are their days out. Early in the year the programme of dates and destinations comes out, and with pen poised I go through it to select possible venues to book. I have never been disappointed, the value for money is incredible,and with a little planning it's amazing how much you can cram into the time available.

Great local service

So great to have a local business picking up where stagecoach have failed the public. Keeping people connected and providing excellent customer service.

Highest Standards

I've used this company multiple times for private coach hire. The drivers have always been polite and well dressed. The use of hands free devices has always been well received as it has allowed them to have the most up to date travel information like road closures etc so that the most time efficient journey could be achieved. This is obviously a preferred method rather than the drivers having to use their phones whilst driving and being distracted from their jobs. One of our party also left their wallet on the coach and we were able to contact the driver to get it back before he got back to the garage. I would recommend this company. They have always gone above and beyond and their spelling is immaculate.

How can you say that you deliver Hugh customer service yet your staff don’t wear the correct uniform at times and drive around with hands free devices in their ears whilst driving?

Travelled with Gibbons to Sotuhport for five days
Apr 2018 • Friends
Myself and six friends travelled with Gibbons Coaches from 16th-20th April to Southport staying at The Talbot Hotel. The suttle bus was a few minutes late however we meet the main coach as planned. There was a delay due to a couple of passengers not being collected as arranged. However we still arrived at the hotel in good time to still have chance to still see some of Southport. We were glad to have a full day in Southport the next day, and throughly enjoyed our visit to Liverpool, however we would have liked to have stayed longer. On Thursday we visited Ormskirk, which was lovely little town with an excellent market. On Friday we left planned and arrived back in Bridgend on time. Our driver was Tony who is an excellent driver who drived safely and the coach was very comfortable. I have only praise for Gibbons as this was a budget holiday however it was first class.
