When you ride with us, we’ve got your back!

Did you know motorcoach travel is 1097 times safer than a car?

Why our services are so safe.

We pride ourselves in the quality of services we provide to our customers, but nothing is more important to us than your safety. Not only do we want our riders to be comfortable and relaxed, we want them to feel 100% sure that they are safe when they ride with us.

Seat Belts

As part of our commitment to passenger safety, we have coaches that come with seat belts as well! Once you’ve gotten settled in for the ride, we want you to be able to click that belt into place and feel confident that you’re in good hands.

High Safety Standards

Our coaches have to meet high safety standards before we ever drive them on the road. While everyday use equates to wear and tear, that never means substandard with us. We mandate that our coaches undergo routine inspections to be certain that everything continues to be up to par, making it possible for us to ensure your safety is never compromised.

Designed with Safety in Mind

While our goal is to create an enjoyable ride for all our passengers, we are also concerned about safety. Our coaches are specifically designed for travel at freeway speeds, taking into consideration safety implications for everyone on board. We want you to rest assured that your safety is a primary concern for us!

Experienced Drivers

When you’re driving your own vehicle, you feel much more in control than when you are riding with someone else. We know this, and make it a point to be very selective in those that we hire to join our team. Our drivers are carefully chosen, having undergone a hiring process designed so that only the best-qualified individuals will ever be behind the wheel of one of our coaches.

We are here to help take you safely to the places you want to go.

Safety Travel Experts

If you’re hiring us to assist you with your next big event, it’s important to us that you feel great about your choice. Safety is our top priority, and we pay attention to every detail on our coaches to ensure they are in optimal condition whenever we have passengers aboard!

Highest Safety Rating

We pride ourselves on delivering our customers the safest possible travel experience every time they step foot on a Hotard Coach. We have a strong commitment to your safety that is woven into every practice in our business. From our award-winning maintenance program to the priority we place on driver training programs, we live, breathe, and deliver safety day-in and day-out. We are proud to consistently be awarded the highest safety honors that the Department of Transportation and the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration offer. Click here to see our rating now.

Green Transportation

At Hotard, our commitment to the environment runs deep. Our company is grounded in the belief that what we leave behind for our children is every bit as important as what we accomplish today. Every day we take hundreds of cars off Louisiana roads and deliver the highest passenger miles per gallon of any means of group transportation. We are consistently leading the transportation industry toward a greener tomorrow.

Professional Drivers

Our driver pool is one of the things we are most proud of at Hotard. We have some of the south’s most accomplished and highly-trained drivers on the roads today. We know that your driver matters, whether you’re being picked up at the airport and taken to a local hotel, or if you are going on a 6-day road trip. We are proud that our drivers are the face of our organization and know that no matter who you ride with, you’re in good hands!

24-Hour Travel Support

No matter how much we want everything to go perfectly, no matter how well we prepare, there are those moments where you simply need help and you need it now! And no matter how much we wish they didn’t, it seems like more often than not, these things happen in the middle of the night. Our team understands that you need help when you need it, not in the morning when someone gets in to the office. Our team of dedicated customer service representatives will always have someone there to take your call, answer your question, and get you the help you need to ensure your travels with us are as perfect as we can make them.

We are here to help take you safely to the places you want to go.

  • We were absolutely delighted with our driver, Denise, and Hotard's punctual service, willingness to improvise, spotless equipment and more.  Our Garden District guide, Mary Eshenour, was delightful, informative and very knowledgeable.  Everything worked to perfection, and I would not hesitate to recommend Hotard to any group visiting New Orleans. And it was a pleasure working with our sales person as well!

  • The service you all provided this weekend was EXCELLENT and one of the best I have ever worked with. Hotard was very thorough and prompt with the booking and scheduling process and our three drivers, Darrell, John and Leonard were timely, friendly and very adaptable.   It is people like you that make our trips so successful. Thank you for this! I look forward to working with you all again when we travel to Louisiana again soon.

  • What a fabulous bus!  Your company has now spoiled us.  The bus was great.  We can't wait until our next trip.  Thelma Alexander was an excellent driver.  Her patience and professionalism with a group of "young" ladies is superb.

  • Thanks for helping make our daughter's event wonderful!  The bus was wonderful and Brandon was awesome! I will definitely recommend your company.
