The benefits of minibus hire for sports events and race days

Are you heading to a sports event or race day with friends? If so, you may be wondering how to get there in a safe and affordable manner. Many people opt for minibus hire for sports events and race days in Barnsley, Doncaster, and Rotherham, with Wyatt’s Coaches often the number one choice. Read on to discover the benefits of minibus hire for sports events and race days. 

Travel as a group 

The benefits of minibus hire for sports events and race days

Sports events and race days are a lot of fun, particularly if you’re attending as a group of friends. You can enjoy each other’s company as you support your team or cheer on your horse from the stands. So, why not get the party started early by travelling together to the venue? A minibus is the ideal transport for group travel, with our vehicles catering for parties of up to 16 people. You can sit back, relax, and enjoy the upcoming event with your friends by your side. 

If you hire a taxi and there’s more than a few of you, you’ll need to travel separately. This means you won’t arrive at the venue at the same time, potentially causing problems. Some of you might get there early and some of you late, and in some cases, you might find that you can’t sit or stand together once inside the venue. We can make multiple stops along the way to your venue and we can drop everyone off after the event. You don’t need to worry about how you’ll get home after a day at the football, rugby, or the races. 

No need to park your car at the venue

When you hire local minibus hire services, you don’t need to worry about driving to and parking at the venue. Sports grounds, stadiums, and race tracks can be extremely busy on an event day, and the last thing you want to be doing is queuing in traffic jams and trying to get parked safely in time for the start of the match or race. This can be incredibly stressful and is unlikely to put you in the right frame of mind for the event. Fortunately, you won’t have this problem when you hire a minibus. 

One of our experienced drivers will be able to deliver to your event on time, taking all of the anxiety out of the journey. Instead, you can focus on having fun with your friends. Another benefit of leaving the car at home is that no-one needs to play the unpopular role of a designated driver. 

Saves money

Of course, travelling as a group to a sports event or race day isn’t just fun and convenient; it’s also a lot more affordable. Minibus hire in Doncaster, Barnsley, or Rotherham is often one of the most cost-effective transport options. You can split the cost of the minibus between your whole group, saving you money. In contrast, if you’re relying on notoriously overpriced taxis or public transport to get to the venue, this can cost you significantly more. The price of several train tickets can be steep. So, rather than blowing all your cash on transport, it makes sense to hire a minibus and spend the money you’ve saved on drinks at the venue’s bar!
