When there are events on in London, those on day trips to the capital often avoid the roads, sticking to public transport instead. However, if you’re going as a group or even taking part in the event itself, private minibus and coach travel is a great alternative you need to consider. The London Marathon is one of the capital’s biggest events of the year, so if you’re looking for a London coach hire company to get you safely there and back again, here’s some advice to follow.
Coaches for Marathon Runners & Organisers
If you’re running in the London Marathon, we salute you! As much as you need to mentally and physically prepare for the task ahead, there’s also the logistics of the day to think about. How will you get there and back? How can you make sure you’re on time? Rather than navigate crowded public transport options, which are going to be incredibly busy on marathon day, consider hiring a luxury coach or minibus for your group.
They’re ideal for anything from sports club travel to running clubs. Even if you’re taking part for charity as a solo runner, you probably have family or friends heading there with you for support, so travelling together is a great option. The vehicles often have excellent facilities onboard, and you can even play music to get everyone pumped up for the exciting day ahead.
It’s also a good option if you’re a group of marathon organisers, and all need to be at the same place at the same time, ready for the event to start. Your experienced driver will pick you up and drop you off on time, and the route will be planned well in advance. An expert coach hire company will know which roads are going to be closed on the day, and the best options for getting you as close to the London Marathon site as possible.
Comfortable, Luxury Coaches & Minibuses
Last year, around 40,000 people ran in the London Marathon, with hundreds of thousands of spectators out in force, as well as those organising the day, police and health care teams. Therefore, finding suitable transport on the day is going to be hectic. Plan ahead so that you don’t have this added stress.
It’s not just about ease of transport, but the experience you have while travelling too. A private coach hire company will offer a range of luxurious vehicles ideal for your group size. Imagine venturing to and fro from the marathon in a minibus or coach with plenty of space and comfortable seating, which allows you to relax both before and after the race. If the weather is hot, they’ll also have air conditioning onboard to help keep you cool.
