About Regent Coaches
Regent Coaches is a long established local family run business based in Whitstable, just outside of Canterbury in Kent. We were first established in 1970 by my Grandfather who had a passion for people, travel and life. With this passion it’s no wonder that when he had the chance to, he brought his first coach and started day trips, tours and coach holidays along the breadth and depth of the UK and Europe.
Well over 40 years later that passion still exists. We no longer operate out of our front room with one vehicle but instead operate out of a custom built office and 2 commercial workshops with a fleet of 30 executive coaches, minibus and buses. All of our drivers are hand selected by myself so that they represent our company and family name that my father and grandfather worked so hard on, to the standards we feel our customers expect.
All of our day trip, tour and holiday coaches and minibuses as well as our service buses are maintained in our extensive commercial and general purpose workshops operated by our very experienced workshop manager. Each vehicle is given a full safety inspection every 4 to 6 weeks to maintain roadworthiness and reliability as well as being serviced regularly to the manufacturers specifications. As well as maintaining our own vehicles our workshops also maintain the vehicles of other operators fleets so that they comply with the rules set out to them by the traffic commissioner. Our workshops are also open to the general public, offering everything you would expect from your local garage from servicing and diagnostics to class 4, 5 and 7 MOT.
