Public Transport Saver Tickets
Public Transport Saver Tickets are combined Festival Entry Ticket AND Return Coach, Shuttle or CycleTickets. Festival Tickets are offered at a reduced price to reward public transport travellers, but you must also buy a coach, shuttle or ‘Cycle to Boomtown’ ticket and travel to Boomtown by that transport in order to be validated to receive your wristband on arrival at the festival.
To take advantage of the reduced price festival ticket, simply add a Coach Ticket, Shuttle Ticket or Cycle to Boomtown Package to your basket along with the Public Transport Saver Ticket.
Yep! You can still add on coaches to standard festival entry tickets, find them on the ticket page.
Anyone can buy a shuttle bus ticket on the day for £10 return from Winchester Train station.
No, you must travel on the coach or shuttle in order to be validated to receive your Festival Entry Ticket. You will not be permitted entry to the festival if you have booked a Public Transport Saver ticket and do not travel on the coach or shuttle.
We offer discounted Public Transport Saver Tickets to coach travellers to encourage public transport. We calculate the size of our car parks based on coach package customers coming by coach. If all of these people were to drive, we would run out of space and the traffic would be horrendous. Please don't do this.
All coaches arrive at Boomtown on Wednesday 7th & 8th August and depart on Monday 12th August.
Specific arrival and departure times will be confirmed on your Travel Ticket which you will receive from National Express within 6 weeks of booking. If you are not happy with the time allocated to you, you will be able to contact National Express on 03 8181 (charged at local rate) or email email@example.com and request an alternative.
Confirmation of booking will be emailed to the Ticket Buyer immediately after completing the booking. This is not your Travel Ticket, but confirmation of your booking. Your Public Transport Saver Ticket will be emailed to the Ticket Buyer from our coach operator, National Express, within 6 weeks of purchase.
If you have not received your Travel Ticket and 6 weeks have passed since purchase, please contact TheTicketSellers on firstname.lastname@example.org or 0121 472 6688 so they can locate your booking and ensure the correct information has been passed to National Express.
The above information applies whether you have booked a Coach Only ticket or a Public Transport Saver Ticket via the Boomtown/Ticket Sellers website (Festival Ticket + Coach Travel).
If you have booked a shuttle ticket you receive an e-ticket which is exchanged when you get on the Shuttle Bus at Winchester Station. This will be emailed to you with your entry tickets in June.
