Travelers are guaranteed a seat, complimentary wi-fi and tea and coffee during their journey.

Commuter Chris Day, from Sandwich, said: “If I had any doubts, they were dispelled from the moment that I was picked up, precisely on time.

“It was just as fast as the train, with no Tube to contend with and, more importantly, in comfort. People actually waved at the coach, thinking it might be carrying celebs what with its spaciousness and tinted windows!

“The journey home was every bit as good as I dozed in my reclining, leather seat and for the first time in years arrived home refreshed and rested.”

The company, based in Deal Business Park, which recently provided the transport for Sheffield United in the FA Cup semi-final against Hull, is offering 10 journeys for £98.
