You’ve hired a coach charter for your upcoming trip. You might think that choosing one with all the amenities is enough for a comfortable travel experience, but your fellow passengers are just as responsible for how pleasant your journey will be. Travelling by coach is a shared experience so to ensure it’s an enjoyable experience for all, all passengers should be considerate and observe common courtesies towards others. Make your charter hire in North Shore is a stress-free, relaxing and pleasant experience with the following suggestions on proper manners and behaviour for coach travel.
Comply With Driver Instructions
Listen carefully to any instructions your driver might give you, especially ones that pertain to emergencies and general safety and security such as remaining seated while the coach is in motion. If a driver cautions against leaning out of the windows, it’s best to comply as any distracting behaviour puts everyone in coach as well as other road users in danger.
Accommodate And Assist Other Passengers
If you’re travelling with frail or elderly passengers or anyone with special needs, offer to help them when climbing aboard the coach or disembarking, as well as with stowing their luggage.
Be Mindful Of Others Around You When Making Or Taking Calls
The interior cabin of a coach is a confined space that you’re sharing with others, and noise can become an issue. Keep calls to a minimum and your conversations as short and quiet as possible.
Keep Coach Aisles Free
Do not obstruct aisles with bags and other objects that may make evacuating the coach in an emergency dangerous. Do not place them over armrests either; instead, store them beneath your seat or in the overhead racks if these are available.
Other examples of proper behaviour include:
- Asking those seated around you for permission before opening or closing windows or shades.
- Checking with the passenger behind you before reclining your seat.
- When stopping for a comfort/smoke break, making sure you get back on board on time, or else you run the risk of putting the coach behind schedule.
