Boomtown Private Hire Coaches & Minibusses FAQ's

Who needs to book?

Any large vehicles (over 18 seats) with a driver NOT attending the festival will need to book in advance.

What if the driver is attending the festival?

Vehicles (up to 18 seats) with a driver attending the festival can buy a parking pass and park in the public car park.

We do not have space for parking of vehicles over 18 seats. Please be aware you will not be allowed access to the site with a vehicle larger than 18 seats and without a booked coach slot & routing pass. The vehicle will need to leave site once passengers have disembarked / boarded.

How do I book?

You choose a slot based on your departure time (what time you would like to be collected to go home from Boomtown on Sunday or Monday). When you proceed to checkout we will ask you some questions about which day and estimated arrival time and also the details of the coach company who are dropping you off - so please have these details to hand.

When we send out tickets in June you will also receive your routing pass for your coach in a separate email. Please print a copy of the routing pass out and ask your coach driver to display it clearly in the windscreen of the vehicle at least 10 miles from site. This will help our traffic marshalls to direct you to the right place.

What is included in the price?

Access for one vehicle to drop off and collect from site at your designated time on hard standing. The slots are limited to 25 minutes maximum on departure so please make sure your group are all ready to be picked up on time. If you have more than one vehicle bringing your party please book a separate slot for each vehicle.

Please note: there are no facilities on site for drivers to wait or take breaks. If the driver of your vehicle needs to take a statutory break we advise that they do so away from the festival site. The nearest service areas are:
Sutton Scotney, A34 (14 miles from site)
Rownhams Services, M27 (17 miles)
Winchester Services, M3 (24 miles)
There are also a longer stay coach parking facilities at the Winchester Hotel on Worthy Lane, Winchester or Central Car Park in Petersfield.

What happens if we want to change our pick up time?

We have limited space on site so you must stick to this collection time you have selected when you made your booking. There are only enough spaces for a few coaches to drop off at once so the best slots will sell quickly!

If you have not booked in advance our team will be taking payments on arrival and will assign you a collection slot based on our remaining availability.

You cannot be dropped on the road outside the festival under any circumstances - please use the designated spaces available. Traffic Marshals and Police will prevent you from being dropped off on the highway for your own and others safety.
