It has really snuck up on us, don’t panic but it’s now December! That means the number of days we’ve got left for Christmas shopping is getting critically low.

Not to panic, though, there are plenty of places to head when you want to go shopping, and you’re sure to find everything you could possibly need for shopping in Liverpool or Manchester.

Stress free

Travelling into a big city like Liverpool or Manchester can be a pain sometimes. At Christmas time, this is only exacerbated with the rush of last minute shoppers. From the moment you arrive at the Christmas Markets to the multiple journeys criss-crossing the city, you will wish there was a better option.

Thankfully there is! Booking a last minute minibus or coach trip for you and your friends will mean you don’t have to catch specific connections, battle through crowds to get on the train or even know where you’re going. You can just sit back and relax as a big coach driver takes you to the heart of your shopping experience. In our opinion, it’s the only way to travel; especially at this time of year!

Make it fun!

What could be better than shopping with friends? Booking a minibus orĀ coach makes it easier for you to make a day of it as a larger group. You can all travel together, arrive at the same time and know where you need to be at any given time.

To add to this, you can also give your trip a little cosmopolitan trip. If you were driving to your Christmas shopping destination, it would mean not being able to stop off for a drink during the day. However, if you get the coach, you and friends can nip in somewhere festive for a bite to eat for lunch and even a few cocktails, hic. It’ll really help to break up the day and make the whole thing feel more like an event.

Getting home

Imagine if you were planning to head back home after you picked up everything you could possibly want for Christmas on the train, only to find there’s nowhere to store all of the presents you’ve bought. It’s a nightmare, but a real possibility when you’re travelling via this method. It can even restrict what you buy.

For our coach travellers, however, there is the added bonus of storage space under the coach. This means you can buy as much as you want, and have the peace of mind that there’ll be more than enough space under the coach to carry all of your presents home.
