Before you travel

Plan Ahead

Our coach hire team will tailor to your individual requirements for your group. To reduce cash handling, we’re asking all coach hire bookings to be paid by bank transfer 5 days in advance of the coach hire date.

Follow Government Guidance

Make sure your group are well enough to travel. If anyone in the group is experiencing any COVID-19 symptoms we would ask you not to travel. JJ Kavanagh & Sons will now operate at 25% capacity on each bus to comply with COVID-19 social distancing guidelines. This means that the capacity for the number of people travelling in your group for now is 13 people. This will be changed depending on the HSE guidelines.

Face Coverings are Compulsory

Wear your face mask and practice good respiratory and hand hygiene etiquette while onboard the coaches. We would ask that you bring your own hand sanitizer for when traveling onboard our coaches.

When Boarding

Social Distancing

Please respect the physical distancing guidelines when boarding, seating and alighting. Give your group and the driver as much space as possible. Please take heed of the notices on entering the buses, whilst waiting or being serviced.

Driver Face Coverings

All drivers will be wearing face coverings at all times throughout your trip.

New Safety Measures to Keep Us All Safe and Well

JJ Kavanagh & Sons have increased the frequency of cleaning on the common surfaces in our depots with a hospital-grade disinfectant, particularly the most frequently touched surfaces. You will be more comfortable knowing that our team holds the ‘Covid-19 Safety Charter’ standard to show that we are following government and public health guidance, to reassure that you can travel on our network with confidence.
