Sporting events are always a big deal, especially when you’re travelling a fair distance to see your favourite team play. You want the day to go as smoothly as possible, and that includes transport to the event. As sports fans ourselves, we know how to prepare for a big match, and the Six Nations undoubtedly falls under that category.

We are highly experienced in providing the best transport for sports fixtures and will work tirelessly to make sure you have the best start to your day. So trust us and hire MET to provide your coach hire services for rugby events.

The Six Nations

The Six Nations (01 Feb – 14 Mar 2020) – an annual international rugby union competition between England, France, Ireland, Italy, Scotland and Wales – is a firm favourite in any rugby fan’s calendar. Last year’s champions were the Welsh squad, and this year the first fixture kicks off in Cardiff between the current winners and Italy. Each year we watch with excitement as our favourite teams compete to win the prestigious championship trophy.

With thousands of people excited to attend the match, you must plan your transport ahead of time. We will work with you to select the best drop-off and pick-up locations and plan a route to avoid the hectic rush before and after the match.

If you’re travelling as a large group, consider hiring a reliable minibus or coach hire service for transport to the stadium. We provide a cost-effective and comfortable minibus or coach hire service to London for sports events, with no worries about parking spaces or pesky fees.

Those planning to watch matches in the other cities like Dublin or Paris can rely on us to drive you to the airport. Our airport transfer services are useful for large groups flying out/in from Heathrow, Luton, Gatwick and Stansted airports. Find out more on our Airport Transfer Services page.
