Celebrating ten years
In 2010 husband and wife team James and Laura Stokes created Coach Hire Comparison; a price comparison platform that’s dedicated to promoting and supporting the UK’s coach industry. Ten years later the brand has established itself an industry leader, becoming the lifeblood of its members by promoting independent coach travel to countless customers across the UK.

Engaging and energising
Despite the pioneering ideas behind the business, the Coach Hire Comparison brand needed a new lease of life. Together with James and Laura, we saw a hugely exciting opportunity. Not just to refresh the brand. But to reinvent it; creating an identity that would engage and energise the UK’s coach hire community along with thousands of travellers. And that’s when Coco came into the world.
We adopted the existing price comparison website in early 2020, and immediately agreed a battle plan to introduce phased improvements to the aesthetics, visibility and performance. The visual refresh was further enhanced with improvements to the on-site user experience, along with a streamlined booking process. Our SEO efforts have also reaped early reward, with prominent positions secured in Google’s rich snippets.
Made for social
Coco is made for social. Literally. And our integrated Facebook-first approach has helped the brand to reach new audiences across the UK and beyond. The 4,000% increase in social engagement isn’t just boosting business for Coach Hire Comparison and their members – it’s providing a much-needed stimulus for UK tourism too.
