For many of us, it’s a thoroughly enjoyable time of year, but it can also be one of the busiest. Come December, the diary is usually full of office parties or pre-Christmas gatherings of family and friends. The season is all about coming together and spending time with those who matter most to us in both our working and personal lives. For employers and commercial organisations, it’s an opportunity to thank clients and employees for their business and commitment throughout the year.
Equally, clubs and groups of all kinds gather during the season to celebrate another successful year.
If it falls to you to organise the celebration for colleagues or others, you’ll no doubt have booked the bar or restaurant and asked diligently about dietary requirements. But one aspect of party planning which can sometimes fall by the wayside is transportation.
And yet it’s a key consideration. How will you ensure all your staff or other attendees get to the venue safely, on time and with no stragglers? Travel can be a particular issue if you’ve gone all-out and booked somewhere exclusive yet remote, like a country house hotel.
With Christmas coming just once a year, there’s often a lot at stake with seasonal celebrations, which are typically highly anticipated. So, you don’t want to spoil an otherwise perfect occasion with chaotic or non-existent transport arrangements which leave your guests remembering your gathering for all the wrong reasons.
What’s more, how do you ensure everyone can relax and enjoy a festive tipple or two without having to worry about who’s driving, so that everybody gets home smoothly and safely? (Bearing in mind that public transport can be unreliable and cold at this time of year, if it’s there at all, especially late at night). You want to end the night on the same positive note on which it began. We’ve all felt the frustration of hanging around waiting to be on our way once an evening has reached its natural end – and it can seriously mar a good night out.
Arranging a luxury minibus and driver hire solves all these niggles at a stroke, with no one left behind, whether you’re hitting the dance floor or getting stuck into an elegant dinner. Additionally, attendees can relax on board and get into the festive spirit before they’ve even arrived.
