So how do you get the most out of Glastonbury Festival?
Firstly, you must register, either by the web site or by post during February, otherwise you cannot buy tickets for Glastonbury when they go on sale in April.
Even if you’re not sure whether you’ll be going, the time to register is before the 14th February, register on the official web site for free!
Next, on April 6th, the offical Glastonbury Festival tickets go on sale, via the web site and also over phone. The tickets can only be purchased by previously registered enquiries.
Last year my experience was that the ticket web site was constantly crashing and the phone lines were permanently busy.
After about four hours I managed to get through by phone, although by then, I found that all the camp site tickets had sold out and all that was left was a TeePee for only £1,850.
As I had well over 150 campervans at Glastonbury last year, I had to book it, no matter what the cost, to ensure we had on site support.
So in summary, you’ll need to be quick to get tickets, as they sell out really fast – within a few hours.
Actually, I had a really good time in the TeePee and I would certainly recommend one, if you can afford it.
And Glastonbury is worth all the money and effort – why do you think so many people go back year after year? Because of all the mud? The fantastic toilets?
No, the reason why everyone goes back to Glastonbury is because it’s the best music festival they have ever been to….
But if you don’t get tickets, don’t give up , because Glastonbury have a second sale a couple of weeks later and then a final sale at the end of April – so you have up to three chances to buy those elusive tickets.
Now most people, after securing tickets, then decide to hire a motorhome. This is a rookie mistake and here’s why:
By the time tickets go on sale, you’ll find there aren’t many motorhomes left to hire – unless you want to drive to Scotland to pick one up.
Why? Because there’s about 1000 camper vans maximum available for hire nationwide.
And a lot of camper van hire companies simply will not hire out for Glastonbury, period.
With over 150,000 + people going to Glastonbury 2008 that’s a big shortfall, don’t you agree?
If, at this point you’re considering a tent, you probably weren’t there last year (you might have noticed that it rained quite a bit and it was a little muddy in places).
Believe me when I say that unless you’re under 20 years old, a tent would be a very brave option indeed.
So instead of a tent, the sensible idea would be to hire a motorhome and split the cost between friends.
Every year, we offer a unique deal to our customers, a kind of "win win" offer.
It’s why Glastonbury revellers keep coming back to motorhome, year after year. Reserve a motorhome for Glastonbury for only £250 deposit.
If you don’t obtain tickets or the event is cancelled, we’ll happily refund your deposit in full at any time up to a month after tickets go on sale.
The balance is due one month prior to the event and you can collect your motorhome anytime during the week (Usually either the Wednesday or the Thursday).
This is important, as the opening day of Glastonbury is Friday, so you need to be on site either Wednesday or Thursday night to get a good pitch.
You might want to check with other camper van hire companies that you can collect a camper van on days other than either Friday or Saturday, as not many do.
And I don’t know any other camper van hire company who will refund your deposit if you don’t obtain tickets.
This year, we’ve over 300 campervans available for Glastonbury!
Think about it, if you pay the deposit on your credit card, it will only cost you a couple of months interest to hold a luxury motorhome for Glastonbury 2008.
How can we offer you this deal? Simple – there’s so much demand for a motorhome after the tickets go on sale, that we can easily rent your motorhome to someone else.
But I must also warn you that hire prices go through the roof after the tickets go on sale.
If you act now, before the tickets are on sale, you’ll find our rates very reasonable. And there’s £50 per person discount off our Glastonbury 2008 hires for bookings made before the 14th February 2008.
Remember, the best, most convenient campervans are always the first ones to be snapped up. And this offer is completely risk free.
