Tips for Organising Group Travel to Major Sports Events

Organising group travel to major sports events can be both exciting and daunting. At Minibus Hire UK, we’ve mastered the art of making such journeys seamless and enjoyable. Here, we've compiled some essential tips to ensure your group travels like pros to any major sports event across the UK.

Early Planning

The key to a successful trip is starting your planning early. This involves securing tickets, booking accommodation, and, of course, arranging your transport. With Minibus Hire UK, you can choose from a range of vehicles, including minibuses, coaches, and MPVs like the Mercedes V-Class or VW, all with professional drivers to ensure a smooth journey.

Choosing the Right Transport

The choice of transport can make or break your trip. For smaller groups, our MPVs or minibuses are perfect, offering both comfort and style. Larger groups will benefit from our spacious coaches, which can accommodate everyone comfortably. Regardless of your choice, all our vehicles come with experienced drivers who know the best routes and can handle any unforeseen circumstances.


Ensuring comfort during travel is paramount. Our fleet is equipped with modern amenities such as air conditioning, ample legroom, and reclining seats. For longer journeys, our coaches come with onboard restrooms and entertainment systems to keep everyone entertained.


Safety is at the heart of everything we do at Minibus Hire UK. All our vehicles undergo regular maintenance checks, and our drivers are rigorously trained to provide a safe travel experience. We also offer travel insurance options to give you extra peace of mind.

Coordinating the Group

Effective communication is crucial when coordinating a group. Use group messaging apps to keep everyone informed about the itinerary and any changes. Assigning a group leader can also help manage the logistics and ensure everyone is on the same page.

Meeting Points

Establish clear meeting points and times to avoid confusion. Our drivers can suggest convenient pick-up and drop-off points, making it easier for everyone to assemble. It’s also a good idea to have a contingency plan in case someone gets delayed.


A well-structured itinerary can streamline your trip. Include all essential details such as departure times, venue information, and return schedules. Share this itinerary with all group members well in advance and keep a few printed copies handy.

Making the Most of the Event

To truly enjoy the sports event, plan to arrive early. This allows you to soak in the atmosphere, find your seats comfortably, and avoid last-minute rushes. Don’t forget to check the event’s guidelines on what you can bring into the venue to ensure a hassle-free experience.

Local Attractions

Why not make the most of your trip by exploring local attractions? After the event, you can visit nearby landmarks or enjoy local cuisine. Our drivers are knowledgeable about the area and can suggest places worth visiting.


Organising group travel to major sports events can be a breeze with the right preparation and assistance. At Minibus Hire UK, we are committed to providing top-notch transport solutions that cater to your needs. From minibuses to coaches, our vehicles and professional drivers ensure a comfortable and safe journey, allowing you to focus on enjoying the event.
