Former Maidstone & District bus driver and driving instructor Donald Ham and his wife Patricia established Hams Travel back in 1963 with only 3 buses.
With extreme hard work and commitment they have expanded their business to a fleet in excess of 50 vehicles.
Now after 50 years of successful business Donald and Patricia are now enjoying spending their time with their Grandchildren. The company is now predominately operated by their two sons along with their daughter, son-in-law and experienced admin team at our main office and depot in Flimwell. We are conveniently situated on the A21 on the Kent / East Sussex border.
Our on site workshop at our Flimwell site is fully equipped with all the facilities that would be expected from a leading coach operator.
Over the years we have incorporated the businesses of Blue Link Holidays of Woods Corner and Davis's coaches of Hawkhurst. We have also taken over the work from Warrens Coaches who were based in Ticehurst and Fuggles Coaches, Benenden. Due to this expansion Hams Travel acquired their second depot in the former Fuggles premises in Benenden.
Along with our coaches and further admin team at Benenden there is also a family affiliated Coachworks specialising in bodywork repair and paint spraying.
Every vehicle in our fleet undergoes regular maintenance and safety checks in accordance with the current vehicle licensing regulations. We have a 100% pass rate with our yearly certificate of fitness tests on all vehicles.
All of our drivers are CRB checked.
Dear Hams Travel
I just wanted to say thank you for our trip to Belgium, France and Italy. Your drivers, Martin and Kevin were fantastic and they really helped us have a successful trip. We probably pushed their patience at times yet there were always friendly and professional. How Martin got the coach around Naples will always amaze me! I have enclosed a photo of our group next to the coach in case you wanted to put us on the website. I have written a report which is seen by all and sundry in the Army and I have praised and highly recommended your company.
