A little bit about us

Thunderbird Transport was established in 1986 with a two-vehicle operation. This business then expanded into a large fleet of multi-purpose vehicles to suit our customers’ ever-changing transport needs. We are centrally located to serve any of the towns & villages around the Chinnor, Thame, Oxford, High Wycombe & Aylesbury areas including the counties of Oxfordshire & Buckinghamshire.

Our customer base at present varies from major blue-chip clients to small businesses and families.

We used 3 of the buses to go out to Newbury Racecourse. Very good trip for all . Our driver, Andy, was one of the owners of the company. He was very entertaining and provided on time service. I highly recommend this company for all of your transportation needs. They understand how to make sure you are well satisfied.

Damien Newman

Best service in the area. Took a bunch of friends and myself to the airport for a trip away. One of my friends forgot his phone, but our driver went back to get it when he really needn’t have. Still got to the airport with plenty of time to catch our flight. Wouldn’t even bother booking with anyone else.
