Welcome to the Official Away Supporters Travel for the 2021/2022 season.
 
Finally, football and supporters are re-united. A lot has changed since the Trust had to suspend its coach travel to Away fixtures due to the Covid-19 outbreak, however we are back and are looking forward to the new season.

If you haven't watched the Blues on the road before, believe me you do not know what you are missing. So, whether you are a first time or regular away supporter, are travelling as a family, with friends or alternatively on your own and want to avoid the need to drive and the headache of parking, you are welcome to come and join us on the Trust coach.

As the official Away Supporters Travel Organiser for Southend United, the Trust will take at least one coach to every away league and cup game.

We have once again appointed SBC Leisure as our travel partners and will be using their luxury coaches for our journeys around the country throughout the forthcoming season.

 
 
Taking into account on-going Covid-19 challenges, supporters can be assured that the Trust is working closely with SBC and have implemented processes within the guidelines provided by the world health organisation and the UK government to help supporters feel confident and most importantly remain safe when travelling to games with us. Specific detail regarding the steps we are implementing at this time are detailed within our Terms and Conditions of Travel. So as to avoid any problems on the day necessitating individuals not being accepted for travel, all supporters should ensure they have read, understood and agreed the Trust's Terms and Conditions of Travel before they move ahead to book their seat.
 
Pick-up & Drop off Points:
 
Coaches will leave Roots Hall where supporters are able to park courtesy of Southend United. We then pick up from the Elms in Leigh, followed by Hadleigh Church, Tarpots Corner in Benfleet, the Watermill in Basildon and finally the Fortune of War, Laindon.
 
Pricing Structure:

The primary objective of our Away travel service is to enable as many Southend United fans as possible to get to away games. In terms of finances, we aim to break even over the season. Coaches will however (due to Covid) be running at below capacity for the foreseeable future and as a result we have needed to increase our prices for some of our longer trips. Supporters should however still find our pricing structure competitive.

Travel Bookings:

For the 2021/22 Season our travel booking process has been refreshed with seat bookings now made on-line only. Your booking guarantees you a seat on the coach at the point that your booking is processed, using the secure service of PayPal. To make a booking please click the green tab to the right of this page and follow the instructions provided. As part of this process, you will be directed to the Shrimpers Trust Terms and Conditions of Travel which you must agree to before proceeding.

To effectively manage the coach booking process we will disable the on-line booking option prior to each game as coaches become nearly full (typically this is around 3 days before and/or when there are around 5 places left). At this point the dedicated travel line (07892 905338) can be used. Due to work commitments this line will only be available Monday to Friday after 6.30pm, so please don't call before this time. Calls will however be taken at the weekend. Please note that supporters should only call the travel line to book a seat when the on-line option has been disabled.

Please also note that we are no longer taking travel bookings by email.
 
Travel Discounts:
 
Whilst all supporters are welcome to travel with us, we do offer a discount on the standard fare to all Trust members. In addition any junior traveller under the age of 16 who is accompanied by an adult paying the full fare will travel for just £10 to any game. This discount may be subject to a maximum of 2 juniors per adult, please speak to the Travel Co-ordinator for more detail at the point of booking your travel.
Junior Blues will also travel free of charge to one game per season provided that they are accompanied by a full paying parent or guardian.
 
Please note that full details regarding travel arrangements are contained within the Away Travel Terms & Conditions which can be viewed by clicking here.
 
Should supporters have any queries regarding our travel process, these should be addressed to the Away Travel Co-ordinator.
 
Finally here's to an enjoyable season. I look forward to again seeing as many as possible of our regular travellers, as well as hopefully some supporters travelling with us for the first time.
 

Best regards,

Lesley Hicks
Away Travel Co-ordinator.
