Travel to RIAT

Travel to RIAT

Postby Airshowguy1 on Fri 02 Mar 2018, 8:48 pm

I've taken a coach trip to RIAT for the past couple of years ( We don't own a car) unfortunately we cannot find any coach trips this year from Liverpool and all other options are too expensive for us (Hotels,Camping,Trains etc). After exhausting all of the options we can think of i was wondering if any of you have any ideas because i would hate to miss out on the RAF 100th this year :sad: we tried car sharing websites but with RIAT or even airshows in general being very specific we couldn't find anybody going near Gloucestershire on the weekend of RIAT.
Thanks,
Liam :smile:

Hi Mate,

Although no good to you directly, despite me being Liverpool based, as I am at RIAT Wednesday to Monday, if you want to train or coach it to Gloucester, i’ll Gladly take you there and back to Gloucester over the weekend.
(Saturday and Sunday).

Let me know.
Cheers
Dave

Keep an eye on this company (based in Llandudno) as I have used them in 2016 and 2017, They do update their list as the months go by so they may add RIAT 2018 to it around Easter time. they do have pick up points at Ewloe and Chester, so you never know?

have you considered air BnB?
my wife and I use it for our time down there, cost us about 40 quid a night last year and 45ish this year. worth considering if you need somewhere to stay.
