Making a Coach Booking
Currently all bookings are being taken on match days in the STAR HQ behind the East Stand, opposite Gate 7. Coach bookings can only be made in person and cannot be made by email or over the phone. We will be open before the match, at half time (access only to those in the East Stand) and after the game. We will also usually be open for bookings on Tuesday evenings (except when RFC are away when we will not be open but on the coach!) from 7.30pm to 9pm but please check this website for updates on opening hours.
Places can be limited, so if you are thinking of travelling by coach to an away game please book early. All coach bookings must be made in advance, please do not leave it until the last minute or turn up on match day and assume there will be seats available. Coach tickets are on sale several weeks before a fixture and the number of coaches are pre-booked based on firm bookings made several days before match day. Unfortunately we are not able to put on extra coaches at the last minute even if there is a demand for it.
Only STAR members are allowed to travel on coaches organised by STAR Travel. Members will be required to produce their membership card when both booking the coach and when boarding prior to travel. Persons not in possession of a valid membership card may be prevented from travelling.
Members may book for groups but, at the time of booking, must be in possession of the membership cards relating to those in the group.
Under 14's/18's Policy: We have a designated coach for those under 18 years old travelling without an adult.
Only this coach will allow under 18's to travel alone so you must request this coach when making your booking and remember spaces will therefore be limited. Please also note that you must be at least 14 years of age to travel on this coach alone or with another minor, if you're under 14 you must be accompanied by someone aged 18+ to travel with STAR.
Reading Town Centre Pick Up Policy: One coach is designated as Reading Town Centre coach, only this coach will pick up and drop off in West Street, Reading outside Primark. Members wishing to travel on this coach must state this at the time of booking. No other coaches will go to the town centre other than this coach.
