Our transport solution

Lucketts Travel has provided comfortable, safe and luxury VIP transport to the players and coaching team from the outstanding Ageas bowl cricket stadium to all away games during the season.

Lucketts Travel provided away transportation for the full duration of the professional cricket season beginning mid-April until the end of September.

Coach hire is now one of the most environmentally friendly modes of transport and Lucketts Travel has made a key decision in having a driver stay with the team on overnight journeys. This is to avoid dead mileage in the form of the coach moving between Lucketts depots and the team hotel.

“I had the pleasure of having my photo taken with the Hampshire Cricket team in front of our VIP coach and one of our VIP drivers Lee. The feedback I received from the team regarding our service was superb, so well done to everyone involved in operating that particular contract.”
