Festival Hands Up

Dating back to the 1960’s, music festivals have long been an important part of British summer. The Isle of Wight Festival was the first ever mainstream festival to take place in the UK. Following the unprecedented success of the Isle of Wight Festival, festivals started popping up all over the country. Glastonbury followed closely behind the Isle of Wight Festival and is now the largest greenfield festival in the world. With hundreds of thousands of people heading to music festivals each year, coach hire is one of the most popular modes of transport.

Why hire a coach for festivals

Coach hire for festivals is a fantastic alternative to car or train transport. With a coach there’s no need to worry about overpriced car parking fees or lugging your camping gear from the platform to the festival. Your coach driver will drop you off at the gates of the festival, saving you time and money, so you can get the party started sooner.

Hiring a coach has plenty of benefits, aside from being the most cost-effective and eco-friendly mode of transport. Coach hire allows you to travel with all your fellow festival-goers, making sure you all arrive on time and together. You’ll be able to get the party started on-board and in the privacy of your own coach.

Coaches have an added safety element. Your dedicated driver will make sure you get there and back safely. So there is no need to worry about a designated driver or getting enough sleep for the drive home, not that anyone sleeps at a festival. You can feel safe in the comfort that your driver is always fully refreshed and ready for the drive no matter how long it is. Trust in us, we’ve been doing festival coach hire for as long as we can remember.
