    normally drive to games but the mrs wants to come to blues so thought it may be better to go on travel club 14 pound thats extorsionate for such a short trip considering its only 4 pound more to go to doncaster which im training it for a change,christmas,few beers ect think i may go on train to blues too at that price.

    The price always seems to fall around the £14 to £20 mark. Don't think distance has all that much to do with it.

    Ah, ok. Well they're playing Villa in a month's time, let's see if they offer free travel to that one. I doubt they will.

    No, but I believe they're doing free travel to Hull at the end of January and have done at least one free travel offer every season for the past 6/7 seasons in which time I can think Wolves have done it once, away at Millwall.

    The significant cost is for the coach itself and paying the driver for a 'shift'. Additional mileage and driver hour costs would be recovered by the difference in charge. The major cost incurred is in the initial mobilisation.

    Only been away on the official travel club coaches a couple of times, but remember going on Coach 1 the once.

    Wondered if I'd got onto one of those Variety Club minibuses by mistake. :eek:

    i thought coaches only did about 10 to the gallon so would of thought would be alot more diesel used in atrip to doncaster as apposed to brum.

    14 quid is extortionate for what is no more than a 40 mile round trip :eek:

    Cannot believe anyone would pay that price.

    Round about 50 on the Coach One that I use for the Southern away games. Depends on the team we're playing (or how we're doing) as to how many coaches in total we take to games.

    Indeed, Dews. Wolverhampton to Donny is 180 approx mile round trip. 18 gallons of diesel at £5 approx per gallon equals £90. So a couple of quid tops extra at cost per passenger if coach is full.

    West Mids Day Tripper = £4.80 (I think) Train, bus & Metro.
    Few beers in Brum before game (maybe a bit of shopping if you are that way inclined) and a few beers after the game once past the Police line.
    Why on earth do people get on a coach unless you are happy to be treated like second class scum and hearded around like sheep? (I accept putting your kids on the coach saves you worrying about them. I also accept that to some games it is a cheaper option). Call it convenience if you want, I'd call it an inconveneience.

    Unless you think all Brummies are hooligans and they are going to beat up everyone insight including Grannies, kids and the disabled.

    I've been harping on about this for years. Big Jez is doin' a good job at the mo on the footballing - but this is a blatent let's rip the fans off!

    Anyone ever booked a coach? - you can get one from anything from £250 (do the maths!) - and I'm sure with the numbers Wolves book there'd be a discount negotiated ... ?!

    I would certainly use the service more if it was reasonable priced, but £14 to Blues PAH!
    I was even considering going by the Travel club to Blues (god how many times have I seen trouble at this ground :() - but not at that price!

    Come on Jez - Blues have done their bit by cutting the prices ..... and yes other clubs do free coaches, it's the ideal game to do it - show good faith for this years support, keep most the away fans together in a potential troublesome derby, less cost to the club cos it's only 10 miles up the road etc etc ...
