Q: I have purchased a ticket + coach package, do my event and travel tickets arrive together?
A: No. Entry tickets are usually sent by Royal Mail Secure Delivery and will arrive approximately 4 weeks before your event. If the event opts for e-ticket entry tickets, they will either be emailed directly from the event organiser or your travel eticket we send will be your entry ticket as well - this will clearly say it on the eticket. Our coach e-tickets are always emailed roughly 5-7 days before the event to the lead booker.

A: Yes, please email us with your booking reference and the new passengers’ name, address, email, and contact number. We do not have a resell platform and this is the customer's responsibility. All amendments are subject to a £10 admin fee unless Flexi was chosen. Please note, we cannot split up customers in a booking, therefore, your booking of 4 people must stay as a party of 4 if selling.

Q: I purchased a package and no longer need my transport; can I have a refund?
A: No, as you have purchased a package you are not eligible for a partial refund under any circumstances.

A: Ticketmaster (UK) will send you a voucher code. This code can be used during the booking process on our website to secure your coach seat. If you have not yet received this code (check your junk mail), please contact Ticketmaster directly - it is only Ticketmaster who can help. Please bear in mind only 1 code can be used per booking. If you have booked 3 coach seats via Ticketmaster, you will need to make 3 separate bookings on our website.

Coach FAQs
