Big Green Coach - OFFICIAL Coach + ticket provider

Postby Biggie Green » Mon Dec 02, 2013 5:23 pm

Hi there. We are Big Green Coach, Official coach travel partner to Sonisphere Festival.

2014 will be our third year transporting festival goers from all over the UK into Knebworth and we will be actively working on this forum to act as a ‘virtual customer service centre’ - offering travel advice and answering any questions that you may have about Big Green Coach services.

Full details on what we offer and to book your seat please visit http://www.biggreencoach.co.uk/sonispherecoach

How do we make your festival experience better;

- Deposit Scheme - our hugely popular deposit scheme returns for 2014. Pay only £50 now for your ticket and coach travel package and pay the balance later - we are the only coach provider to offer this!

- UK wide network of services - choose from 41 different departure points around the UK and travel straight to the heart of the festival. We drop you in the Official coach park right next to the main entrance.

- Being Green
- Coach travel is the most environmentally friendly way to travel to the festival (if you ignore bike riding and walking that is!) For each customer we bring to the festival, we will sponsor and protect 5 square foot on Amazonian Rainforest for ten years. You are making a real difference.

We will keep you updated on here and via our Facebook page http://www.facebook.com/biggreencoachuk

Please don't hesitate to get in touch. If you prefer to email us then please do so at enquiries@biggreencoach.co.uk

Hi Billy,

Sorry for the delay in getting back to you. We thought that we'd receive an email if a post was placed on here.

We are not planning a service from those airports. Our full network is:
Birkenhead, Birmingham, Bradford, Bridgend, Brighton, Bristol, Cardiff, Carlisle, Chelmsford, Chester, Colchester, Coventry, Crawley, Edinburgh, Exeter, Glasgow, Ipswich, Lancaster, Leeds, Leicester, Liverpool, London Victoria, Manchester, Middlesbrough, Milton Keynes, Newcastle, Newport, Norwich, Nottingham, Plymouth, Portsmouth, Preston, Reading, Sheffield, Southampton, Stockport, Sunderland, Swansea, Swindon, Taunton and Wolverhampton.

If there is demand, we are open to putting on additional coaches from new locations. Can you please let us know if you see a trend?

I hope this helps.

BGC

thanks for the response , i know there will be quite a few people flying in from the states and Ireland to both stanstead and luton , might be worth posting something via the facebook page to try and gauge the interest. so far we have had about 6 or 7 asking how to get to the festival site from both airports. i picked a friend up from Luton in 2011 as there was no service even though its only about a 15 minute drive

Hi, they will be emailed out some time in June. Usually 2 weeks before the festival.

Thanks,

Quick question. Do you offer a one-way service?

I may be hitching a lift in a car in the way down from Glasgow but would need to make my own way back. Can't see anything on your website except returns

Hi there, all of our services are return. If you book a return though you will be guaranteed on the coach back to Glasgow.

I hope this helps.

Hi Big Green Coach,
Do you know roughly (in terms of hours[ish?]) How long it would take to get to Sonisphere from Manchester?
Also, about what time would pickup from Manchester be?
Many thanks.

Hi there,

journey time is so difficult to predict as festival traffic is very unpredictable. Best thing to do is put Manchester to Knebworth in to google maps. This time is for a car (faster than a coach) in ideal conditions...but it will give you an idea.

Departure times are on your e-ticket and the BGC Sonisphere website.

See you in a few days!!!
