We’ve been helping customers have memorable UK and Continental holidays, days out, and trips to air shows and concerts by coach for over 90 years. Our ethos is to have our coaches and staff provide you with the best in high quality travel at competitive prices. To this day, we are still as passionate about giving you the perfect break as we were back in the 1920’s. It means a great service – tailored to you – with a hassle-free experience.

Whether you are looking to hire a coach for a day trip, a weekend break or for an extended duration, Bakers Dolphin are the top choice of many travel organisers in Bristol and the southwest of England.

What’s more, Bakers Dolphin are delighted to announce that they have won two awards at the prestigious British Coach Tourism Awards 2018. These are for Coach Driver of the Year (Michael Blowers) and Coach Tour Operator of the Year, Large Fleet.

And that’s on top of winning last year’s Best Coach Operator award for Groups
