Founded in 1986, First Coach Hire has developed an enviable reputation providing high quality coach hire at an affordable price in Aberdeen, Aberdeenshire, throughout Scotland and the United Kingdom.
First Coach Hire has a long and enviable history in providing reliable and dependable coach hire in the local areas and beyond for; social, commercial and educational purposes. As a division of First Group Plc - the UK's largest bus and coach operator – you can trust us to look after you, we have a nationwide network of supporting depots to assist our operation and the ability to cover work across the United Kingdom.
We began life as 3 separate companies; Grampian Executive, Mairs Coaches and Kirkpatrick. We joined together and combined the best elements of each business to create First Aberdeen Coach Hire. This then became First Coach Hire in 2018 with the launch of our new ‘dynamic lines’ livery.
Our coaches have toured across the UK and Europe, putting Aberdeen on the map for quality coach hire. We pride ourselves in our heritage and when you hire a coach from us we ensure that our service is just as good as when our journey began, but that doesn’t mean we haven’t changed.
