Introducing Our Festival Travel Guide
The best way to get to your FESTination!
13 July 2007
Ok, so you’ve done the hard bit: you’ve got the elusive tickets for the festival of your dreams; your bag is packed, your tent ready (albeit a few bent pegs) and you’ve pulled those grubby wellies out from the back of the cupboard. Is that everything? Not quite... You still have to get there, and safely. Our new Festival Travel section - produced in association with The AA - has everything you need to get you to your FESTination as smoothly as possible this summer.
"But how", we hear you cry from beneath the bonnet?
AA Route Planner - Gives you exact directions to your festival. Plan a route which avoids motorways, highlights petrol stations, finds those hidden speed cameras and highlights traffic black spots to save you from missing a single act. Just find the festival you’re going to in the Virtual Festivals Upcoming Listings and the route planner is waiting for you. Just whack your postcode in and it will do the rest. Click HERE.
The Ultimate Travel Survival Guide - Helpful insider tips covering every element of your festival journey, from start to finish. Remind yourself of the obvious things, like not drinking and planning ahead, while also learning some new tricks, such as how to get your car out of the mud. You know it'll come in handy this summer!
