Press releases from businesses across the National Express Group.
Fans who snapped up Glastonbury tickets this week can travel to the festival at 2009 prices with National Express.
Glastonbury tickets went on sale on Sunday and sold out within hours. Festival goers are already considering their travel options and to reward early birds National Express has frozen their 2009 coach fares until 30 October. Coach tickets are available to purchase now at www.nationalexpress.com
National Express carried 10,000 music fans to Glastonbury this year, creating the UK’s largest temporary coach station on site. Music fans travelling by coach contributed a significant carbon saving to the festival and helped to remove thousands of cars from the road.
Bruce Amos, Operations Manager for National Express events, said:
“2009 was a great year for Glastonbury and there are even bigger expectations for 2010, which is the festival’s 40th anniversary. We’ve already taken bookings for travel and have frozen our prices until 30 October to help reduce the cost for our customers. “
Fans arriving by coach receive priority access to the site, resulting in less time wasted in lengthy car park queues. Each customer also contributes a significant carbon saving to the festival site when compared to car travel, helping to keep Glastonbury green.

London– Glastonbury for £42.50
