As passengers, we have become so used to being treated like cattle by transport companies when going from place to place that it has become completely normalised. Most transport companies seem to care more about their machinery and procedures than the passengers they are supposed to be serving.

Snap does transport differently, making your journey much for comfortable and carefree, yet still affordable with prices starting from just £5 each way. They connect intercity travellers with coaches and drivers which are usually reserved for VIPs, luxury tours and elite sports teams.

Their specialised technology predicts when people want to make trips, so the most popular departure times are already set up on their system. This allows for a guaranteed seat with a low fare, even at popular times, when other companies try and charge the most. Snap also gives you the opportunity to book the seat next to you, if you want a bit more space.

Their coaches are cost effective to run and have the lowest carbon footprint of any form of motorised intercity transport. They provide transport only when there’s enough demand, keeping your cost to a minimum. Snap also offers a price match guarantee – if you find a cheaper fare on an equivalent trip, they will refund you the difference, no questions asked.

Book your Snap ticket online in seconds. After that, you only need to tell the driver your name and he will have all your details, no physical ticket needed. The pickup points and dropoff points are convenient and if you need any help with your booking or your trip, speak to real people for assistance.

Their tracking systems tell you when your coach on its way to your selected pick-up point, so you know exactly when it’s going to get there. It also allows you to monitor the arrival time of your journey with a real-time map and coach location, just check your texts for the link after booking your ticket.

Snap treats their passengers like people, not prisoners. No more ticket machines and barriers, no more computerised-voices apologising for the inconvenience they’ve already caused. They use customer feedback to select operators for new journeys. After each trip, every customer is asked to rate their trip from 1 to 5, enabling Snap’s systems to use an algorithm, offering new trips only to the best performing operators.

Snap supports independent businesses. Most of the operators they use are independent, family firms who care about quality and customer service, in a way the big coach networks simply do not.
