Trip Transport

The transport used by the Club depends on the trip destination and popularity. For local trips we mostly use vehicle-pooling, and for more distant destinations we use either vehicle-pooling, or commercial transport. Groups of six to twelve can use our club van. Please advise your trip leader early if you can offer or require transport.

Departure points and times vary and trip members should check the arrangements with the leader. For weekend or longer trips non-members must pay costs in full (transport, accommodation, and food) on the Tuesday before the trip. Anyone withdrawing from the trip after that Tuesday is required to pay the full fare and expenses.
