Top ways to get to a festival this summer
How are you going to get to your festivals this summer?
Before you get those precious tickets everything else seems irrelevant – but a lot need to be considered. What clothes are you going to wear? What tent will you take? Do you need to book off work the week after to recover? But most importantly, how on Earth are you going to get there and back?
Getting a bus takes away the element of having to drive. If you can’t drive it’s a cheaper, easier option than getting the train. It is much easier, don’t get me wrong – but after 3 or 4 days of not showering and being sleep deprived, do you really want to spend hours stuck in traffic with 50 other people who smell? I personally wouldn’t!
I know – a better idea than a bus is just to get your parents to drive you! See if they want a nice weekend away to a nearby location on the same weekend. It’s the perfect answer to not having to do the driving yourself (or being stuck on a bus which smells!).
Driving yourself is an easy option. Throw all your stuff in the boot and don’t think about it until you’re home. If you’re a passenger you can sleep the whole time, but for the driver it’s just not as fun. How about splitting the journey? Our Car Sharing Insurance or even a Veygo Rental car could be the answer to your problems. That way everyone can drive a little bit of the journey!
If you’re going to a festival abroad or on the other end of the country, flying might be the best option for you. It sounds ridiculous but it could actually be cheaper and faster than any other form of travelling.
If you don’t want to get the bus or drive, maybe the train is a good option. But make sure the festival is close to the train links! You don’t want to try and lug all your stuff for miles before even getting to the campsite. Taking the train will be a perfect option for festivals with good links, such as city festivals.
Making sure you get to the festival is never a first thought when buying the tickets, but that doesn’t mean it’s not important! Consider how to get there and back safely before the festival so you can plan ahead with plenty of time.
