Our last league game away with Reays and John our usual driver. It’s been a blast. A cup game left then who knows. Thank you for a great service!



25th March 2024

Our driver was brilliant. The route was along windy roads but he drove it very smoothly. Got us to our destination in plenty of time and was waiting for us when we were heading back. The coach was immaculate and very comfortable.

Many thanks - I would definitely recommend!

22nd March 2024

I have returned from a trip to Strasbourg with two of your drivers, and I just wanted to email to say how amazing they’ve been. We’ve been on a lot of school trips and I can honestly say they’re the best drivers we’ve ever had. They were really helpful and did all they could to make the trip run smoothly. They were also polite and friendly with our students which was lovely.

Please thank them again from us.

I'm just writing to thank you for your help and efficiency while I was arranging transport for our trip to Allithwaite yesterday.  From your booking staff to the driver they were all very helpful, polite and friendly.  The bus was immaculate and on time, just as arranged, leaving us with no worries about arriving on time!

Good Morning,

After a fairly long journey on Friday I just want to thank our two drivers for a great job again. 

These lads are a credit to Reays coaches and I would like Chris to know how much we appreciate these two drivers.

Nothing phases them in any way shape or form. They are always professional and proud to work for Reays.  They look after us all loading bags on the coach for the ladies always helping us all.  We absolutely love having these 2 and feel that they are part of our organisation. 


Please can you pass these comments to Chris and to their Managers





29th February 2024

Easy to book, great coach, our driver was very helpful.  We have used Reays a couple of times and will be using them again.




10th February 2024

Dear Sir / Madam,

I am a tour leader from China Bamboo.  We had a great time with our driver.  He was always punctual and smiling.  Our group was so delighted with him.  He was freindly to us and even more, he learned the chinese "chi la" which means ready to go.  John is the ambassador to the UK, he was the very first person who we accompanied with.  Well done, hope to collaborate with him again.

Thankyou and best regards

Passengers from Reays Day Trip to Polar Express


8th December 2023

I wanted to write an email to express my thanks to everyone at Reays (especially the two drivers and the person who has the emergency phone contact number). You helped us out massively when our flight was cancelled at 8:45pm, 4 hours before we were meant to leave from Dumfries. It was imperative that you were able to be flexible to allow us to go to the airport and it wasn't a problem for you to move it. I cannot thank you enough!

Secondly, the driver yesterday was kind enough to stop at a services after a delayed flight to allow the pupils to get some food before returning home again and assisting us with loading on and off with luggage.

You really did give a top class service and we will be booking again.


Merry Christmas

Dumfries High School

We didn't catch our drivers name and wanted him to get some recognition he was fantastic, he kept us up to date with what was happening and when, dealt with some horrendous driving conditions and was very punctual, he even accommodated the passenger needs when the onboard toilet became blocked (due to the dreezing temperature)

Thank you so much and please pass on our gratitude to him.

We would recommend your coach services and trips we've had a truly magical day from start to finish.

Kind regards,

Christ the Good Shepherd parish in Workington were incredibly impressed by the service offered by Reays Coaches. We left for Newcastle Airport in the early hours on a dark November night. Our coach drivers both ways were very friendly and welcoming and drove us safely and very comfortably to our destination, and the service prior to the trip was excellent with contact details of the coach drivers in case there were any issues. Our gratitude to getting us off on our pilgrimage to Rome on the right foot, and picking us up at the end!

Morning. Just a quick review for your website.

Used Reays for the last few years for private hire for a party of over 40 ladies. We have always found the service to be excellent, the coaches are immaculate and the drivers superb. We had a new driver for our outward journey, and he was really lovely and very helpful. On our return journey we had a driver who we have had before. He is a great guy who has a brilliant sense of humour! There is absolutely nothing I could fault. Thank you for making our trip. Look forward to next year!



20th November 2023

Fabulous service as ever from Reays and our driver who is very obliging and great to work with. Thank you!

Thank you once again.

I would like to pass on my thanks to all 3 drivers for the Netherhall trip to Grand final on Saturday. The bus drivers were friendly, accommodating and very helpful. The trip was so much more enjoyable because the bus drivers were fantastic. They were understanding and wanted everyone to enjoy the trip. All staff and students commented how nice the drivers were and as a result we will be looking to book with you every year for the trip. Thank you and please pass on my thanks to the drivers.

Wallace Hall Academy


7th October 2023

I'm not one for writing reviews but after the service we have had today I thought it would be rude not to.

We have been taken down to the Bolton- Carlisle match today (7th October) by your driver.  From when we first stepped onto the coach he was an absolute gent, couldn't have done anymore for us and the service he provided was outstanding.  It's team members like him who carry the name of a business and he deserves a massive pat on the back.  We will definitely be requesting him as our driver for any future bookings.  Please pass this onto him and let him see what it means to a coach full of passengers.



4th October 2023

Wonderful day out, stunning places, worth every penny! Driver & hostess were the very best...Great friendly service...

Fantastic service from Reays, comfy coach and superb driver.



12th September 2023

I would just like to thank you and your team for organising the 10-seater VIP mini coach on Saturday for our day out at Thirsk races. The vehicle itself was amazing (see picture attached outside my house) and the driver Dave was a credit to your company. From the time he arrived at my house to the time he dropped us off nothing was a problem to him. He was polite and his customer service skills were excellent. I would recommend this service to anyone.



12th September 2023

I would just like to thank you for the service that I received from yourselves in respect to our travel to Bavaria. The administration back up was excellent and informative and the help in sorting out the Ferry crossing was very much appreciated. The coach was adequate and comfortable for the 23-hour journey there and 23 hours return. The drivers were brilliant, friendly and very supportive as well as been very professional.  We are looking to repeat our trip in 2025 and will be asking for a quote from Reays Coaches Ltd.



11th September 2023

Will definately go on the trip again, we had an enjoyable day out and the staff were excellent.


Passengers from Reays Day Trip to Liverpool


6th September 2023

We used Reay Coaches to collect (and drop home) our wedding guests from multiple locations (Cockermouth, Lorton, Buttermere etc), the journey was not a simple one for a 72-seater coach.  Every guest marvelled at how the driver managed to get the coach around so many tough roads and in and out of tight turning circle during pickup and drop off.

The team was super responsive leading up to the big day!

I would recommend their services to anyone!



5th September 2023

Another fantastic journey with Reays and their driver. No wonder we use them year after year; the look after us really well. Aspatria RUFC.



2nd September 2023

Our driver was courteous, efficient and a very good bus driver (given the DPD van and narrow lanes!). Super, good value trip. Lovely experience, plenty of time to enjoy both places. Thank you

30th August 2023

I highly recommend this company, we had a girls day out to Newcastle for a friends birthday and our driver and we give him 5 stars, what a lovely man and nothing was a hassle for him.

The drivers were very efficient, the seats comfortable and a good travelling experience was enjoyed by all.

Thanks again



15th August 2023

Our second time using Reays for a private hire to a music festival down country. The drivers were always at the pick up points on time with a smile on their face. The busses were great with air con and had enough room for all our luggage. They came back cheaper than any other company also. We will be using them again in the future. Thank you!



26th July 2023

Hi Reays!  We were very pleased with our trip on 13th July.  Very clean coach with all mod cons and an excellent driver.  We actually got back to Cockermouth half an hour before we expected, having had really trouble free run.



14th July 2023

The service received form your team from he initial call to the final drop off was amazing.

I had booked our transport for this occasion 4 months ago, and just 5 days before the  event they cancelled on us, via an email, they didn't even have the courtesy to pick up the phone! I had regular contact with your office and the driver throughout the day, and you service was second to none. I will certainly use Reay's Coaches again when I have events in Carlisle.



13th July 2023

Everything was perfect. The hotel, the staff, the island, the food, the driver, the coach, absolutely everything.



10th July 2023

Another fantastic golf away day partly thanks to Reays coaches. Once again they gave us good service from the start of the booking, to dropping the golfers back at the golf club. The driver was very helpful in loading and unloading the coach with all the golf clubs.

Reays have been top of our list for many years and will continue to be for more to come.



10th July 2023

Outstanding service from beginning to the end, we hired a disabled bus and it was amazing, the driver was a credit to you and made the trip even more special.thank you reays we will 100% use you again.

4th July 2023

29th June 2023

Thank you for all your help in the run up to the wedding and the excellent service.



27th June 2023

We couldn’t say anything but wonderful things about our experience with Reays! They picked our guests up promptly and arrived at the wedding with plenty of time to spare. Even adding a little stop to pick some rogue guests up on the way with no added cost. At the end of the night, you gave us the peace of mind that our treasured guests were getting home safely. You were wonderful from start to finish with great communication and reasonable prices. We can’t thank you enough!



27th June 2023

Our bus from our family wedding was on time, the driver was really nice, got everyone home. Would definitely recommend. Also staff in office very helpful too on booking.



26th June 2023

The trip went really well, The driver was great, nothing was an issue to him from coming across an unexpected road closure on our way to the first pick up to making sure everyone got collected promptly after we had finished at Beamish. He is a very knowledgeable driver and knew all the roads to avoid traffic and give us some scenic roads on the way back. The bus was clean and modern we will definitely be using Reay's again.



26th June 2023

I’m very pleased to feedback that the service was exemplary, the driver , fulfilled all our requests politely & respectfully. We could not have asked for more. We fully intend to use Reay’s coaches for out intended trip this Autumn.

Thank you again



22nd June 2023

The driver was excellent, pleasant, friendly and very helpful.



21st June 2023

20th June 2023

We enjoyed our trip with your company.  Our driver was a credit to Reay's, he is very pleasant young man who was professional throughout and tended to all our needs. Would have him drive for us any time.  Both buses were a very high quality and we had no issues.



16th June 2023

The service from Reays was excellent. The driver arrived in plenty of time both directions and was very professional but also very patient when we got delayed by circumstances beyond our control! 10 out of 10.


14th June 2023

Just wanted to let you know how well using Reays to get to the Pink concert was for us.

Our driver, was a lovely, professional and friendly host on our coach. Please pass on our thanks for getting us there and back. The admin process of booking and receiving the tickets has been excellent too and I thank you for that.

I would not hesitate to recommend and travel with Reays again in the future.

13th June 2023

We would all like to say a huge thank you to our driver for taking us on our residential trip to Manchester and Liverpool last week.  Nothing was too much trouble for her.  Even when faced with stressful situations (such as one way streets and no parking!), she remained professional at all times.  She went above and beyond to help out staff and children alike.  She was friendly and helpful, and was brilliant with all the children.  We hope she will take us somewhere again in future!



12th June 2023

Coach was absolutely fantastic, very high standard, the journey both going and coming back was effortless. Our driver was very helpful and accommodating to all on our trip.



12th June 2023

I just wanted to say how pleased we were with services provided by Reays coaches on our recent tour. Our driver was excellent. He ensured that travel went smoothly and timely. He went above and beyond to ensure our party got to see and visit many additional places on our travels.  He carefully planned our route to avoid traffic congestion on the way home. He was great to chat with and we felt very easy in his company.  We would certainly like to travel with this driver again. Thank you again



11th June 2023

Our group found Reay's booking very efficient, the coach arrived in good time, the driver was very polite and welcoming. The driver was again very polite and helpful. We would definitely use Reay's again in the future.

I would just like to say the bus drivers were great they were very friendly from start to finish they definitely made the trip to Wembley better.

The convoy looked great we have used your buses before but will definitely be recommending you 



29th May 2023

Just wanted to say massive thank you for the trip to Wembley - it was fab. The booking team were really helpful and kept us informed from the start.

22nd May 2023

Well what can I say… Reays Coaches are brilliant!!

The fact you could cater for us at a last minute arrangement was really really great. All your staff are so helpful and attentive on the phone and by email, with any questions asked answered immediately.  The bus driver who took our young farmers on their trip was ace, he provided some top quality tunes which made the journey very enjoyable for them all which you don’t get all the time! A 5* service.

I honestly cannot thank you enough.



22nd May 2023

Driver was already at pick up point when we arrived. Coach was immaculate and comfortable for our trip out, Taking our under 14 rugby team to their away match.

9th May 2023

We would like to say a great big thank you to your team for helping us to organise a visit of 20 visitors arriving from Germany for the Coronation.  The coach drivers were very helpful and the coaches were spotless.  Our guests arrived on time on their inward journey and on their way home.  We have used your company before and we consider you to be one of the best companies to use.  Thank you very much



2nd May 2023

When we were forced to look elsewhere for a coach company to take Branch members to a game at Old Trafford due to our usual company not having availability due to date changes, I had to look elsewhere. As we start from Dumfries, this had to be taken into consideration

My search took me to Carlisle and Reays.  Having travelled on their coaches many years ago, I knew of their reputation, but with the Dumfries start etc, there were a couple of things to sort out.

Correspondence was quick and efficient and a coach booked.

On the day, the coach was excellent and everything went as expected, down and back in good time without a stop.

I certainly wouldn't have any hesitation in using Reays again in the future or recommending them to anyone looking for a coach to hire.



2nd May 2023

Our players had a great time with Reays. A special thank you to the front of house staff who put in lots of effort to organise timings with us, thank you to the driver who helped make our trip memorable, the staff couldn't have been more helpful.



24th April 2023

Would just like to say a big thank you for yesterday's bus and say big well done to the drivers as everything ran perfectly



24th April 2023

A big thank you for a wonderful weekend. His driving skills made us feel safe at all times, he kept your coach clean and tidy throughout our trip and was the perfect ambassador for us and Reay's Coaches. Please pass on our sincere thanks to him for making our weekend so enjoyable.    



24th April 2023

Thank you so much for letting us hire one of your luxury coaches at the weekend. From booking on the phone through to the final coach drop off point its been absoultely brilliant service.

The driver was absolutely fabulous and on time and an excellent driver.

We really appreciate you helping us to book the coach especially at such short notice too. We were very lucky you were able to accommodate to our needs and be there for us.

The music in the coach was brilliant and it was really good that there was air conditioning and a toilet!

Thank you so much again and we will be sure to use you guys again in the future.



12th April 2023

Both drivers on the way down were lovley and did a great job.

The driver that took us across went above and beyond in caring for the kids. We had a chaotic time at Dover, but he made the entire situation as smooth as he could and just went above and beyond for everyone. He saved the ski trip! I have told the ski company we want to use Reays next year and we want the same drivers. I have already told him all of this, but I just need the company to know how fantastic he is. He is worth his weight in gold! They were excellent, they were instantly part of the team and joined us for activities which was a sight to behold but brilliant!



7th April 2023

Thank you for transporting our wedding guests to help us celebrate our marriage ,the driver that drove the bus was very friendly and helpful ,his passengers have messaged myself saying how good he was.



2nd April 2023

We were very happy with the driver - he was kind, attentive, a very good driver, the coach was nicely presented on the day and he just made the day even better.



28th March 2023

We would not hesitate to use Reays Coaches again. The price was competitive, the driver was very friendly and welcoming throughout the journey and the collection and drop offs were seamless.

We were very happy customers.


15th March 2023

As always Reays offer exceptional service. Always on time and friendly drivers. It was a long day for all involved. This is very much appreciated.



13th March 2023

I was the lead teacher for one of our recent trip to Ullswater. I have been making this trip with 48-72 children for the last 6 years and have nothing but praise for your company. They are always on time, very polite and helpful for pupils and staff alike.

This year, we needed to be collected a little earlier from Ullswater and rang your office a few hours beforehand. I need not have worried as your team made the adjustments and we were able to depart at the earlier time on both coaches. We look forward to working with you again next year.



10th March 2023

The Driver was Outstanding. He was welcoming and helpful thoughout. He never once complained about our kids and said they had been brilliant throughout the whole trip. He was outstanding!



2nd March 2023

We had a fabulous trip to Sunderland Empire. The driver was very approachable and made us all feel welcome. The coach was lovely and students thoroughly enjoyed their day out. We will be recommending and booking with Reays again.



27th February

we used Reays for out school ski trip last week across to Austria. We had 2 of your coaches with 4 drivers. I wanted to get in touch to say a huge thank you for the outstanding service we received.

All drivers were very professional and friendly throughout the week. They were always very positive and enthusiastic towards our staff and all of our students. This really made a huge impact on their overall experience of the trip. It also meant that it made the long journey more pleasurable and bearable. They were very helpful throughout the week and went above and beyond to help us when we needed it. Finally, a huge thank you to one of the drivers for making the day extra special for one of our students when it was his birthday. Massive compliments to you all and I hope that the next time we run a trip like this we are able to work with you again.



28th January 2023

I’d like to say we had a wonderful day and the service was brilliant. The driver was on time and the vehicle was clean and comfortable. We would definitely use the company again.



20th January 2023

I just wanted to say a huge thank you for changing our bus to a bigger size - the students absolutely loved the evening.

Also, I wanted to pass our thanks on to the bus driver - he was really good, very positive and enthusiastic with the students - he really added to their experience and made the journey! Huge compliments and thank you from us to him.



14th January 2023

Everything ran smoothly from the initial booking to the journey on the day.  Bus was on time for pick up in Keswick. The driver was great from the get go. Dropped us off door to door and same for pick up and was in good spirits! He allowed us to drink and eat on the bus and play music.  Thanks to the sales team for sorting the booking out.  Will definitely recommend Reay's!



7th January 2023

This is our 2nd season using Reays Coaches and we have had the same driver on nearly all our trips.  As usual our driver was superb.  This man should be cloned and used by other companies.  Nothing is any trouble to him. He looks after his passengers and his service is absolutely fantastic.  We cannot thank him enough. He knows everyones names now and also comes to support the team when they are playing.  We love having him with us. A Big Thank you to the driver from everyone involved here

Well done to all of you, thank you again.

Great trip!



26th November

Thanks for the transport this weekend. Our coach was full of praise for the driver who is now clearly part of our team. Superb feedback about how he is so helpful and looks after the lads. I wanted to let you know so that the positive feedback can be sent directly to him and the bosses at Reays too.



26th November

I am happy to report that our family had a very special day out  on Saturday to the Christmas Market at Manchester organized by Reay’s Coaches. We joined the coach which was very punctual at Maryport,  and were transported in a very comfortable and clean coach on our trip. There were toilet facilities on board which we didn’t need to use as we stopped for a break on both the  trip down and back home, but it was good to know they were there just in case. Our driver was very friendly and efficient and we travelled in complete safety with her  at the wheel,  and we very much enjoyed our traveling experience and were pleased when we were dropped off and picked up in central Manchester. We had adequate time to enjoy the  Christmas Market which was very busy and quite an experience on the day,  along with the shopping too.  I can highly recommend travelling with Reay’s and  give them a score of 10 out of 10 – extremely good.  I will definitely book with Reay’s again.



26th November

My 6 Yr old grandson and I went on the trip to the Polar Express on the 26th November. It was magical from beginning to end.  From santa driving the coach, his chief elf handing out sweeties, to the event itself there were no complaints.  Neither of us can wait to go again next year!



26th November 2022

Reays are our go to minibus hire company, we always receive excellent service and the driver was punctual and professional as always. The minibus was modern and very clean, thank you



19th November 2022

I'd just like to say a big thank you to our driver on Saturday. We felt very safe with him driving & he was very courteous & friendly.



8th November 2022

As usual, service from these 2 drivers was absolutely fabulous. We love having these 2 take our trip. One driver provided us with Portuguese Custard Tart. No mean feat for a team of 36 players. These 2 need to be cloned. Fantastic guys and a great trip as always. Please thank them from us all.

8th November 2022

My daughter and her friends had a great day/night out in Newcastle - thank you for providing the mini bus and an lovely driver who was on time to take them and there to pick up for a safe return journey home.  Please pass on my thanks to your driver and a big thank you to him from my daughter and her friends. Excellent service from you all, we would definitely use your Company again.



31st October 2022

Thank you for the trip on the weekend great as always driver lovely man! Will be back soon for our next away trip.



21st October 2022

I recently used Reays Coaches for our annual Carlisle race day trip from Barrow in Furness on 13th October 2022.  The booking and payments were made quite sometime beforehand with an acknowledgement email received straight away. On the day the driver turned up half an hour before and was very helpful with our bags and very obliging, we reached our destination with time to spare.  Our return journey the next day was just as good as going, we had a 4pm pick up which was 15 mins early so no waiting and the driver was very professional.  I wouldn’t hesitate using Reays again as I think they go above and beyond your needs, it also helps having an on board toilet.



18th October 2022

I booked Reay’s to take family & friends on a surprise day out to Ravenglass to help celebrate my Dad’s recent 80th birthday. The team came back really quickly with a competitive quote. Booking was very simple & the sales team were extremely helpful, both at the time of the booking & when paying the balance of the trip. Our driver on the day was on time for both outbound & return journeys & he was friendly & helpful. The minibus was clean, tidy & comfortable.




17th Octoner 2022

Thank you for all your help from initial booking through to pick up and drop off. High quality coach and accommodating driver a credit to the company.



12th October 2022

he driver was spot on by the way if you can let whoever know he did a good job.



11th October 2022

It was my first trip with your company and I was really impressed with the whole set up including value for money. I definitely intend to book further trips.



3rd October 2022

Overall our experience was very good. The driver was friendly, helpful and safe. The bus was really smart, with lots of room and the charge points were really useful. Everything went to plan and the bus was on time.



26th September 2022

We had a fantastic experience working with Reays. The process from start to finish was seamless, we were supported every step of the way and every accommodation we requested was met efficiently.  The channels of communication were open from the get go. One of our students left their phone on the coach and it was kept safe and returned to us.  The coaches arrived well ahead of time and the staff were polite and super helpful. Thanks for making us feel so welcome and making booking a coach so seamless. Looking forward to using your services again in the future. 



15th September 2022

I just wanted to let you know, I didn't catch the name of our driver on Saturday but he was excellent, a good driver and more than helpful, had done his homework and know exactly where we were going and the parking situation at Percy Park, he couldn't have been better. If we had him every trip that would be spot on.



14th September 2022

The staff at Reays have been attentive to our every need and have been quick to respond to all our requests.  This includes the back room staff who have organised our trips and kept us updated of even the smallest detail, to the driver allocated to us.  We visited Reays and were pleased with the set up and the quality and pride that all staff took in their company was clearly evident.

We agreed to use Reays for all our away trips this hockey season and the players and coaching staff were pleased by the comfort and facilities of the coaches allocated to us and also delighted with the driver, who will drive for us for the season ahead, who is seen now as part of our team.  Players commented upon the charging points at each seat and the comfort of the seats for long trips.  There is adequate room for our ice hockey kit and we arrive at our away fixtures in plenty of time and relaxed.

I would recommend Reays as an excellent company to work with



7th September 2022

I’m writing to express my gratitude for the changes made to the K3 route.  This new route looks to be better all round. Better for the children and the fuel usage therefore also better environmentally.  I appreciate this will not have been an easy task and therefore thank you for listening to our concerns.



26th August 2022


Just wanted to say a big thank you for all your help with our wedding transport. You were so helpful and accommodating and everything went so smoothly. You are also awesome at spreadsheets unlike myself!



22nd August 2022

Just wanted to say everthing was great. Our driver was on time, warm & welcoming, very approachable and happily adapted to our requrests. She was just really nice and made effort, everyone travelling picked up on it. The bus was imacculate too. Thank you to everyone in sales too for being so lovely, I was so unprepared when i called but you were so lovely and sorted everything out.



26th July 2022

Reays coaches provided us with an excellent service at our daughter’s wedding. Due to Covid  her wedding was rearranged three times.  Reays dealt with everything in a very professional manner and ensured there was no drama involved. On the day all the coaches arrived on time and were spotlessly clean. Everyone commented on how cheerful and friendly all the drivers were. I have no hesitation in recommending their service. 


Thank you again

Kind regards



25th July 2022

Big compliments to our drivers who ensured everything was spot on. We loved our vehicle too which made our trip to and from Wembley a pleasure.



22nd July 2022

The service was good and very professional when booking.  The coach was lovely and very comfortable and the driver was excellent.

Thank you



14th July 2022

I just wanted to say thank you to Reays Coaches, who have been most helpful with our booking, in some very difficult times.  Everyone was very comfortable and even those who are not the best at travelling said it had been a smooth ride.  A special thank you to our driver for his driving skills, courteous manner and punctuality on our trip to Dalemain House.



6th July 2022

Hi there.  Coach arrived on time and was immaculate. Driver was so friendly and polite. Would definitely use Reays coaches again, they are a local friendly firm to deal with from booking to end of our lovely trip. Thanks




5th July 2022

I returned from a WW1 Battlefields tour on Sunday 3 July - a trip which used your coach company.

I wanted to pass on how brilliant both drivers were, and we would be delighted to use your company again for future international trips.  The drivers were very punctual, professional, and always went above and beyond to make sure that our students had the best experience possible.  I have run this trip for a number of years now, and your company and drivers have by far been the very best I have ever used.  Simply put, they always went the 'extra mile', and we are very grateful.

Thank you and I look forward to working with you in the future.



4th July 2022

Well, what a fabulous day Emily & Liam had! It didn't even rain!!  Thanks so much for everyone's effort and good cheer. The day flowed wonderfully (as did the drinks!) and the atmosphere was spot on. The place looked amazing and felt so inviting. The music was brilliant and service spot on.   I'll be creating a blog all about it at some point, mentioning you all.

4th July 2022

Good morning, This was my first time I booked Reays Coaches and I will definitely use them again. Everything was just easy and efficient. Drivers were super nice and on time. Highly recommend.




1st July 2022

I`ve used Reays coaches several times and never had any issues with them. The drivers and office staff are always 1st class and i`ll be more than happy to use them again and wound`t hesitate to recommend them to anyone.





30th June 2022

I just wanted to make contact to pass on our thanks to your drivers who took us on our trip to London this week.  They were amazing.  They were so helpful and friendly and the transport ran like clockwork, despite some of our students being 'fashionably late' on several occasions. Please could you let them know how grateful we are at both of them going way above and beyond what we would have expected, and for making the trip so smooth and enjoyable.  We'll certainly be requesting them again, if possible, to take us on future trips!




28th June 2022

The coach was clean, modern and comfortable, and the driver was excellent. Exactly what we had hoped for.

Please feel free to use this. In the stress of getting home and dealing with all the students, I didn't get a chance to thank the driver, so I hope you will pass on my appreciation to him.

I would say that the run up to the journey was less smooth, including issues of getting the coach to FSC Blencathra. In the event, no problems for coach or driver!




28th June 2022

Thank you so much for the recent service.  The coaches that you sent were beautiful and high quality and both drivers were professional and extremely friendly.  I would have no doubt in contacting you in the future for other services.



21st June 2022

We had a lovely experience travelling with you on Saturday 11th June this year to Glasgow King's Theatre to see Mamma Mia.  Our driver was very approachable and welcoming to the staff and students. We would very much welcome travelling with you again in the near future and thought the whole experience from planning the trip to the day itself was wonderful so thank you for accommodating us.



21st June 2022

Thank you so much for all of your help with our clients wedding earlier this month. There were a lot of changes - your patience was super appreciated.  The drivers were all super friendly and flexible, please pass on our thanks to them.

The weekend ran really smoothly - thank you for everything!



10th June 2022

The drivers were excellent, couldn't have been nicer blokes. The whole service has been fantastic and we couldn't fault anything.




9th June 2022

We were very grateful to Reays for stepping in at the last minute to provide us with transport to our sporting event. The handling of all communications was first class and the payment options worked smoothly. On the day our driver was exceptional, nothing was a problem to him and we would 100% use Reays for our next booking. Thank you and well done.




30th May 2022

Just a quick thank you for supplying coaches and helping us out with Huddersfield Town fans, although the result didn’t go Huddersfield’s way the rest of the day was fine, nice clean coaches all turned up on time with smart drivers who were very patient and accommodating upon arrival at the ground.

Parking up and loading 80 coaches with nearly 4000 eager fans can be challenging but everything went well so please thank your drivers on our behalf.



25th May 2022

Just wanted to say a big thank you for the brilliant service you provided for us on 11 & 12 May for our Group Board Visit to Cumbria – it went without a hitch and we will be more than happy to use your Company again in the future.



18th May 2022

Just to say how much we enjoyed having our driver today. It was lovely for the Shap children (and teachers) to see what old pupils do. Super driver as well!



17th May 2022

I am writing to thank you for your excellent service taking our university choir to Canterbury to perform in a Cathedral's Group (of Universities) Choir Festival at Canterbury Cathedral.

It was our pleasure to have our designated driver and I hope that he enjoyed the experience as much as we enjoyed having him as a member of 'Team Cumbria' for the trip.


Please pass on our good wishes to him and thank him for helping to give our students such a memorable experience - one of which I am sure they will never forget.




27th April 2022

Fantastic service from getting a quote to getting us from A to B. Both drivers good crack. Thanks very much.





25th April 2022

Just wanted to say thanks for the great job you did this weekend

Thanks again




24th February 2022

Please can you pass on to your drivers, our many thanks on behalf of our school for their professionalism in driving and accompanying us on our short tour of London's theatre's, eating places and studio. We have done the London Theatre Trip for many years now and wish every driver was so helpful and friendly (not that we've hand many bad ones lol ). They drove that bus so smoothly and through some bad weather conditions and the many traffic cones displayed along the M6.

Both I and especially Emma (Trip Leader) did not have chance to personally thank them as we had to engage in getting our cars to ferry our students home. I'm sure our other staff did thank you personally on our behalf, but here it is again!



14th February 2022

I’d just like to thank you, Reays and our driver from today for the top quality service we received and our super smooth journey, nothing was too much hassle for our driver including putting the heating on for us when we got back to the bus after the match soaking and cold!!




9th February 2022

Having just back from a fantastic holiday this is a thank you to Reays for taking me to Potters Resort? I also want to mention our driver, he really looked after us all and was a excellent driver 100%. Hopefully you will put on another Potters holiday I shall look forward to returning again.

kind regards




7th February 2022

To thank everyone in the sales office for chasing the hotel for her and keeping in touch. I can't wait to get on another trip.




2nd February 2022

I very much wanted to express my thanks and appreciation to our driver for looking after us all so well on our recent trip to see Strictly! His humour and Cumbrian banter were a joy to hear and to go that extra mile in dropping us off and picking us up next to the arena meant a lot especially on such a windy day and more so for people who are not good “walkers” and it was a bonus to bump into some of the dancing “professionals” outside the arena and take photos!


30th January 2021

Just to said we had great time in Manchester at the show and best seats.


Amanda and Lisa


17th December 2021

I wanted to praise the driver who was a true gent and went above and beyond for the passengers.  We couldnt of had a nicer driver.  I also want to thank the office staff for their amazing customer service.  We all felt very looked after by Reays and will be intouch for future bookings.  I hope everyone at Reays has a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.




29th November 2021


Good morning,


Just wanted to show our appreciation for our two drivers again this past weekend.

Same as our last trip, nothing was too much trouble for them and everything ran smoothly even though the weather was dreadful.

These 2 are an asset to your team.

Kind regards




29th November 2021


Good afternoon


I’d just like to pass on my thanks to the driver of our Keswick School. Last Friday (26th) we were unexpectedly late for the bus and he kindly waited a minute or so for us to catch up. It was greatly appreciated.


Kind regards



4th October 2021

Good afternoon,

Please would you pass my comments onto your transport manager and anyone else you think would be interested.

We have just returned from our first trip with you and I cannot thank your drivers enough.

Nothing was too much trouble for them, they were fantastic throughout the whole trip. They were patient and pleasant throughout.

They represented your company and the high standards you must hold your drivers to impeccably.

I cannot thank you enough for letting these 2 drivers take our trip.

I also would like to request them to drive us  again if possible for our next trip to Middlesex. If possible we would like to have one or the other on all our trips this year.

Please pass on my thanks and the thanks of everyone on our coach.

Excellent lads and excellent service.

Kind regards



7th September 2021

To Reays Staff

Just a quick note to thank your Company and drivers for their excellent service you provided on James and Helenes Wedding Day on Saturday.

The coaches were first class, the drivers were smart, prompt and negotiated over Caldbeck Fell with excellent skill.

Many thanks for your help in making the day so special.

24th August 2021


Can i just say a great thank you for our daytrip to Whitby yesterday, they were great, as was the two young men that took us to Penrith and back.  It was the first time out of West Cumbria for us in 18 months and we enjoyed our day very much.

So many thanks



5th August 2021


This is a very late "Thank you" but I would like to say how much my daughter and I enjoyed our trip to the Hampton Court Garden Festival and Kew Gardens a couple of weeks ago. We had never been on a coach trip before and were very impressed. The timing and organisation were superb, and our driver was wonderful.

I'd like to mention Coughton Court, where we stopped on the way down. As a substitution, it became one of the highlights of our visit and we'd love to go back. The hotel (also a substitute I believe) was lovely. It looked more welcoming than the Heathrow Holiday Inn scheduled. We feel fortunate to have had such a great experience for our first. It goes without saying that Hampton Court and Kew were amazing.

Thank you again for a memorable tour.



2nd August 2021


Hello, thanks for the bus yesterday a great trip compliments to your driver very professional even dropped our Penrith passengers by there home fantastic service

Reays Holiday Deligtful Devon

I returned from a five day trip to Torquay on Friday. I wish to extend my gratitude and best wishes to the driver Alan, I believe his surname is Taylor. His local knowledge of Devon made all the difference to the holiday and his expertise and sense of fun added pleasure to the holiday. Therefore will you please pass on my very best wishes to Alan and tell him I hope to travel with him again in the near future. The girls in your Office are also to be commended for their professionalism .

Reays Private Hire

Would like to compliment the driver, we all had a good day out


12th July 2021

Reays Holiday Hampton Court Flow Show

A wonderful weekend to Hampton court flower show. We travelled to Coughton Court on Friday. A wonderful home and we were greeted by Imogen and then taken on a garden tour by head gardener Jamie. Then travelled on to the Holiday Inn at Sutton . Checkin, evening meal and breakfast were good. Saturday had been amazing and despite a little rain the Hampton Court flower show was as good as ever. 

Sunday we have a day at Kew Gardens returning back to Cumbria late tomorrow evening.

None of this would be half as much fun without the skill, patience humour and consideration of our driver David. I certainly wouldn't want to drive through Friday rush hour in London or negotiate small country lanes in Warwickshire. Well organised , lovely transport, a good driver and amazing places to visit. What's not to like!


28th June 2021

School Private Hire

On behalf of my colleagues, I'd like to thank you and your staff for the excellent service we received whilst using your coaches for 8 trips last week. We took almost 500 students and staff up Binsey, as part of a fund-raising activity and the punctuality and helpfulness of your drivers was exemplary.  Access to both the school and the fell are not easy, but we were on time, and often early, for each stage of the trip. Thanks again and we look forward to using your company for many more trips in the future.

28th August 2019

Private Hire

I would just like to thank one of your drivers who was on duty on Sunday from the Howtown Outward Bound Centre in The Lake District. Despite arriving at 1pm for our 2pm pick up, there were some issues on the road near the centre with cars being parked along a tight road meaning the coach was unable to get to the centre to pick us up.  This could have been a highly stressful situation however he was pleasant and calm throughout which made a massive difference to our attitudes when we were eventually able to set off from Howtown back to Glasgow just after 3.30pm with our group. We were very grateful for the drivers positivity and calmness and it meant that it did not end our weekend on a low so I just wanted to email to say thank you for this.

I would just like to email regarding a booking I had on Saturday through yourselves going to Murrayfield and back.  I cannot praise our driver enough! We were obviously very excited because of where we were going and also a bit merry and he was so patient with us.

He stopped when we asked him and he also let us sync the phone up so we could play our music on the way (Spice girls cant be easy for everyone to listen to!) nothing at all was a bother for him, and honestly I just want you so to say thank you to him from us all!

7th June 2019


Just a quick message to pass on our thanks to Reays and our driver. I have just returned from a residential trip to London with my class of 11 year olds. Our coach was just amazing - so clean and comfortable. The driver was great. He was so helpful and always on time which makes a potentially stressful time much easier. There was a lot going on in London during our visit and he did a great job getting us from A to B on time.


23rd May 2019


I would like to say that our driver was a fabulous. Not only was he professional in the way he dealt with the group, but his knowledge, expertise and willingness to share with us went over and beyond anything I could have expected. One of our group lost their luggage on the way over, and was told they might not get it back before the end of the trip. He went out of his way to facilitate getting their bags to them as soon as possible. He helped me with getting the information and tickets I needed for the group. He stopped at places along the way to enrich the trip and add information we would not have been able to see as per our itinerary. I could go on and on about what makes him so special, but suffice it to say I am very impressed with him. I would hope that I could use him for other trips in the future


22nd May 2019


I have had the pleasure of being part of a fabulous “bucket trip” tour group. our driver for the week, He did a marvelous job. He offered us so much history and information that we would not have had otherwise. He facilitated retrieving bags for another one of our group that the airline lost. He went over and above and he melded with our group. Gary really enhanced our trip!!! Will ask to use him again in the future


15th May 2019

Private school transport parent

It’s brilliant you can pick up at Boltongate. You’d be amazed how many parents are limited by school choice because buses don’t pick up from their own village and their work hours cannot allow for pick up and drop offs whilst they are supposed to be at work. I’m sure parents at my younger child’s school will be very interested to hear how flexible and adaptable Reays are being with transport to and from Keswick School. Thanks again and please thank Nicola and Chris on our behalf. I look forward to getting timetables with Boltongate on in mid August. Have a great Summer in the meantime!


11th July 2018

Paloma Faith, Carlisle Racecourse, Private Hire

Hi, I was one of the group members on a coach To Carlisel Racecourse on Saturday and I just wanted to get in touch to thank your driver for being such a pleasure to deal with. Right from the moment we got on the bus he was warm and friendly. Right through to when we were encouraging him to “be aggressive” when trying to get out of the car park at the race course. Everyone that I’ve spoken to who attended that event have said how much of a nightmare they had getting home. I’ve sang Reays praises because we had a hilarious bus driver who made the bus journey so enjoyable!


10th July 2018

School Trip, Tour

I have recently lead a school trip, booked through a travel company to London. Your company provided our coach travel and we had an incredible time. The coach had ample room, was air conditioned and tidy. Our driver, Gary, was brilliant - he had fantastic knowledge about the area, he was great with the children and we found that he definitely added to ours, and the children’s, experience!! I understand that from only a first name, it may be hard to locate him, but where possible, please pass on our many thanks to him!

Seascale Golf Club, Private Hire

Can I just say on behalf of Seascale golf club ladies section  a massive thankyou to Reays and your driver Martin for staying with us on Thursday night. It was so much appreciated. We did not expect to win the county championship and therefore expected to be well ready to go home early. Having held the lead from the morning it would of been a shame not to be there at the end for the presentation. Unfortunately the play got slower as the day went on and so the expected finish time was well later than expected. Martin is a credit to your firm. A lovely gentleman who added to a brilliant day. Can you please pass on our appreciation to him and apologise for the singing on the bus on the way home. Many thanks again.


2nd June 2018

We have just finished a tour with Just Go holidays covering Kilkenny and the Wicklow mountains and I would like to let you know just how impressed we were with your coach and in particular with your driver Andy. Throughout the week we were aware of, and reassured by, Andy's presence but at all times he stayed in the background and left things to the tour representative, although he was always happy to converse with any members of the party. In addition to the above I would also like to say how smooth and calm Andy's driving was, he is a credit to your company.

Normandy, Air Cadets annual trip


I am one of the Officers accompanying the cadets on the trip around the battlefield sites in Normandy and also the PR Officer for Cumbria & Lancashire Wing ATC.


We have been so grateful for the help and support your company have given us to complete this trip. But it would be remiss of me to not say a few words about the main driver you have given us, Mark. 


Mark has been integral to the group all week. His military background complimented everything we did and his enthusiasm has been boundless. He is a brilliant asset and Ambassador for your company. Hopefully we can use him again for more trips in the future.


I would also like to thank you for your continued support for the Air Cadet organisation as a whole and particularly Workington Sqn and their minibus. We couldn’t function without support from groups such as yourselves.

3rd April 2018

Paris, school trip


Now that we are safely back from our trip to Paris, I wanted to send my thanks to your drivers, Jonny, David and Mark who were all efficient and courteous.


Mark was with us most of the time and his skill in driving in challenging conditions was exemplary. It is not easy to negotiate the Arc de Triomphe at rush hour in a car, never mind a coach full of exciteable teenagers, but he remained calm and capable at all times, even on the return journey when we encountered the M1 at a standstill. Mark found us another route and arranged a changeover with David.


It was very reassuring to have such an experienced driver in France with us and one who was another set of eyes to keep the group safe on various occasions, which was above and beyond his driving role.


You gave us the use of a fabulous coach and we hope we treated it with respect.  It only remains to say thank you and that we will be using Reay's again in the future.


21st March 2018
