What to do on a long coach trip

ImageMET Coaches understands how boring a long journey can become. Sitting in one spot for a prolonged amount of time can make you and your guests feel restless and bored.

Our goal is to provide a fantastic experience that will turn into fond memories as well as an excellent service. To ensure our clients have a fantastic experience on our coaches, MET Coaches have put together a list of four ways you can entertain yourselves on a long trip.

Have a conversation

When a long coach journey begins, many tend to focus on when they’ll reach their destination and forget to enjoy the trip there. Starting a conversation on a long journey is an interesting way to pass the time. If you’re with a group of friends, the “Remember the time when…” topic is always a funny and entertaining conversation to have.

Coach karaoke

Everyone loves a good sing-along. It is hard to resist an impromptu karaoke session when music from your younger years, the soundtrack to your favourite musical or even karaoke classics begin to play. They say time flies when you’re having fun, so a singing session will definitely make you feel like you arrived at the destination in no time.

Lose yourself in a book

Escape from the world you’re in by investing in a good book to read. Whether you prefer online reading or a good old physical copy, there are a number of titles to choose from.

Play games

Being on a coach may limit the types of games you can play, but it doesn’t have to limit how much fun you could have. Games like I spy or charades are perfect with any group. One type of charades you can play is animal charades – one person will make an animal sound and/or act it out and everyone else has to guess the animal. Other games you can play on a minibus or coach journey include:

  • I went to the shops and I bought…
  • Twenty questions
  • Name that song
