Why you should travel to events by coach

Summer is drawing closer and your events diary is filling up. With all the excitement, we’ll focus on getting you there, so you can focus on the action. Whether you’re heading to one of the UK’s umpteen festivals, off to see music royalty or about to cheer your team on at the hottest sporting event, we’re with you all the way.

Here are our tips to show you why travelling with National Express is the best solution to get you out and about this event season...

1. Arrive event ready

Travel with us and you can start enjoying your event as soon as you hit the road.

Let the fun begin onboard by surrounding yourself with fellow event-goers, and with your guaranteed seat you’ll be sure to enjoy the whole journey in comfort.



2. Avoid the drama

Sat Nav sending you in the wrong direction? Your mates can’t read a map? Avoid these travel tragedies by heading to your events with us.

Our lovely drivers know exactly where they’re going so you don’t have to. All you have to do is book your tickets and leave the route planning to us. And what’s more, you won’t have to battle to find a parking space when you do arrive!



3. Save the planet

Travelling together by coach not only saves on individual fuel and parking costs, but more importantly, helps significantly reduce your carbon footprint.

Coach travel is one of the greenest forms of transport meaning you can be friends of the environment as well as each other!



4. It’s direct

Our coaches drop you as close to the event action as possible. There’ll be no more long walks from the car park or figuring out complicated routes from the train station, instead just step off the coach into the centre of the action.

In fact, for many events, our coaches arrive straight into coach parks so you can’t be dropped off any closer! And even better, when the event is over, your coach will be ready and waiting for you.



5. And relax…

Whether you’ve been partying all weekend at a festival, crowd surfing at a gig or cheering and chanting at a sporting event, when it’s all over you’ll likely be looking forward to a sit-down!

Travelling by coach means you’ll be safe in the knowledge we’ve got your journey home covered. You just sit back, relax and let someone else do the driving.
