Welcome to Criffel Coaches

At Criffel Coaches our aim is to provide high quality mini coach travel at affordable prices without compromising on safety.

Brussels, Borgue or Barnsley – our international licences, issued by the Traffic Commissioners for Scotland, mean that we can take you anywhere in Europe in our 16 seat Mercedes mini coaches. Our luxury 16 seaters come complete with air conditioning, reclining leather seats and luggage storage capacity, while our standard 16 seaters have forced air and high back, coach style seats. All of our mini coaches are Mercedes, maintained to the highest standards. They are safety checked daily, with a full garage examination every eight weeks. Annual MOT’s are carried out by the Driver and Vehicle Services Agency, who also constantly monitor the performance of vehicles and licenced drivers. 

All our drivers are fully PCV (Passenger Carrying Vehicle) qualified, with the added reassurance that they are also covered by PVG (Protecting Vulnerable Groups) certification with Disclosure Scotland. Training for the PCV licence involves 35 hours of classroom work to obtain the Driver Certificate of Competence, regular medical checks and a rigorous driving test. Drivers are governed by strict driving hours regulations, which are monitored by Tachographs installed in all vehicles. All vehicles now have trackers fitted, so that we can monitor their whereabouts at any time.

We are happy to provide quotes for small group travel for up to 16 people. We also do day trip excursions and small group tours, either in our own home area of Dumfries and Galloway or further afield, depending on your requirements.
