Im very sad to say that the trip to Slovenia has been cancelled due to not having a bus:boo hoo:

Two companies let us down really bad and I have phoned another 17!!!!!!! Its far to short notice for them or the cost is far to high for us.

On behalf of Lee and myself we are very sorry for letting you down and the disappointment you will all be feeling. We are feeling the same and I am more so since I did lots of phoning around the past 2 days.

I hope you can find other ways of getting to the game, and if not maybe we will see you in behind the goals if Hibs do the right and sensible thing and get a beam back.

Sorry again

Nikki and Lee

Blox to em I say - if they've let you down why on earth would you want to use them again in the future? Its the nature of business - its down to service - they've failed you so the business should go elsewhere next time.

PS - sure everyone on here recognises that you two have been left high and dry by them and the disappointment would be aimed where it should be instead of at you. Good effort as the other poster says.

one company let us down as the bus that they were going to provide had a gear box fault:boo hoo: his other buses were out or not suitable for a long trip

at this time of the year there is summer holidays and don't forget driver have to work to time restrictions too....very difficult to arrange at short notice and usually rarely would you receive the proper acknowledgement for the time and effort concerned....:applause:

as i have experience of how coach companies run and regulations of drivers hours and rest etc i thought it would help in getting a bus but no such luck:boo hoo:

thanks to other people who helped with contacts and advice:top marks

I'm gutted for you guys. I was reading the previous thread with envy that I couldn't go and admiration for the hard work you were putting in to sort it for "the boys".

Well done again !

Would it not be worth booking up at the moment as the more that book the more chance that the price will go down to 535. Worth it for another 65 with possibility of getting some change if enough bookings are made? :thumbsup:

Was a great effort on the part of you boys to even attempt something like this at such short notice.

If we get to the group stages and we have a bit more forewarning of away opponents then it may be worth looking at again. I would love to do a European trip by bus as for me it just seems the traditional way to do it.

lucky escape then - the hard shoulder in France or Holland would have been a bad one

Fair do's. Would have thought they should have been looking at getting one in from somewhere else if you'd booked though...

A few of us who where on the bus are now hiring a MPV. I'm just waiting to have the type of vehicle confirmed.
.
It might be that it is a couple of seats bigger than originally planned. So it could be we have a couple of spare seats. If anyone wants to fill them PM me AND o'connors strip (Nikki). Pricing will be about the same as the bus.

Bad luck folks. Great effort.

Hopefully you'll get the chance to come to the fore for the next round! :wink:
