Travel Club Information
Payments and Bookings
All payments for the travel club this season will be taken in advance of the day of travel. This can either be done by online bank transfer (BACS) or cash at the game before the date of away travel. Contact the travel club to arrange for payments to be processed and we advise this is done ASAP whilst making a booking to travel with us.
All bookings should be made by contacting Mark Shephard. If it is your first time booking on with us we will ask for your first name and surname, a contact telephone number and your age. We also ask everyone booking on with us where you would like to be picked up. We strongly advise bookings to be made ASAP and for busier all-ticket fixtures bookings will only be taken from people who have a match ticket for that fixture.
The pricing of travel to away fixtures will vary depending upon the price, type and size of transport we use, the destination of travel and the age of people booking on with us. We believe our pricing to be fair given the recent continued rise in price of transport and fuel.
Pick up Locations and Times
Pick up locations are Paignton rail station, Torquay coach station, Newton Abbot Penn inn roundabout and Exeter Jewson's (just along from Exeter service station). We do sometimes allow alternative pick up locations on-route but only if agreed by the travel club organisers. We can also often allow drop-off locations to be different to that of pick-up locations if required, but again these must be checked before travel.
Pick up times are arranged for each trip and will vary depending on the location and anticipated travel time on the day of travel. Please note as much as we try to stick to these times they may vary if traffic is busy or due to other external factors.
Membership of the Torquay United Travel Club
When first travelling with us you will have to complete a membership form and pay a small membership fee to ensure you become a member with us. Membership of the Torquay United travel club is compulsory to be able to travel with us and, whilst it does not entail cheaper travel, it ensures priority booking for busier matches.
We run a golden goal competition whilst on board the travel club for £1 a go. Payments must be taken in cash so please ensure you have the correct change as we go through the coach. The rules of the game are simple; simply choose a minute in the game you think a goal will be scored by either team and whoever guesses the minute of the first and/or last goal in the game correctly wins the prize money.
We go off BBC sport immediately after the game and no other apps are used.
Prize money is often £30 for the first goal and £10 for the last goal with the remaining money either donated to charity or to the Torquay United Travel Club.
If only one goal then all the prize money (£40) is won by that person and if no goals then we ask an official or steward for a random number at the end of the match.
Transport and Travel
The size of the vehicle/s will differ depending upon how much interest we have for each trip. We will let you know of any changes in the mode of transport well in advance of the day of travel if this should arise.
Please note: For the 2023/24 season, due to the recent rises in the cost of transport and fuel, we will attempt to do our best in getting fans to as many away games as possible. However, this may not always be possible so please be patient and book on ASAP to avoid any disappointment.
