11/04/2016

Large Football Matches like premier League and European Games require well planned and co-ordinated transport solutions. We have provided Mini Coach Hire Liverpool and Executive Mini Coaches for Barcelona FC when they have played North West Teams including Liverpool FC, Man Untied and Man City. These vehicles were for club directors, club President, Club Press and other support staff. These are all VIPs that need to have vehicles at their disposal during their visit as they require to be at meetings and events at different times than, like press conferences and practise sessions.

Intx can provide solutions for a number of different types of transport requirements, including team coaches, supporter coaches, and management vehicles. For younger football teams that are playing in local competitions or visiting new towns then their requirements are often different and require a more bespoke solution, a few examples of football transport that we have provided are as follows:

Since 2008/9 premier League seasons we have provided the official transport for the LFC Scandinavian Supporters club in partnership with VING Norway who are part of the Thomas Cook Group. For every home match there are between 50-400 supporters that require transport services, which includes transfers from scheduled flights from Manchester Airport or a charter flight into John Lennon Airport that are arranged for some of the big games. Match Transfers, stadium Tours and sometimes city tours. We provide all the coaches for these groups together with ground support to ensure that all runs smoothly.

We have also provided Executive transport solutions to both the English and Spanish FA’s for International matches, when players have needed to be transported from Airports to Hotels, Hotels to training grounds and Stadium to home destinations.

For Large European Games especially there are many corporate sponsors that require their guests to be looked after, for a number of seasons we were proud to work with Vodafone during their Sponsorship of the European Champions League, all our vehicles had to be branded with their logos and driver had to wear corporate clothing.

Aintree Grand National Horse Racing Executive Transport

04/04/2016

Going to the races is a great day out, whether this be with business associates, colleagues, or friends. Locally in the North West there are a few great Venues including, Aintree, Chester, Haydock, and Bangor on Dee.

The Grand National is a National Hunt horse race held annually at Aintree Racecourse in Liverpool, England. First run in 1839, it is a handicap steeplechase over 4 miles 3 1⁄2 furlongs (7.141 km) with horses jumping 30 fences over two laps. It is the most valuable jump race in Europe, with a prize fund of £1 million in 2015.

The course over which the race is run features much larger fences than those found on conventional National Hunt tracks. Many of these, particularly Becher’s Brook, The Chair and the Canal Turn, have become famous in their own right and, combined with the distance of the event, create what has been called “the ultimate test of horse and rider”.

As well as the local courses our clients often travel further afield to watch some of the great Spectacles including Doncaster, York, Ascot, Goodwood and Cheltenham.

We have a range of vehicles which are ideal for corporate days out including Executive Chauffeur driven cars, Luxury Mini Coaches and larger coaches.  Letting someone else do the driving can take away some of the hassle associated with days out, including who is nominated driver and not “drinking”, where to park and planning the best route etc.

Manchester Airport to Liverpool is our business… especially if you’re a DJ

10/03/2016

DJ and Artist transfers are a key part of our business, this weekend we were providing chauffeur driven cars Manchester for one of the
big night clubs. Transfers don’t often start to and from the clubs in until after midnight and often go onto 6:00am.

It all happens whilst most people are sleeping, Artists often do gigs in different 3 different countries on a single weekend, e.g. Thursday
Night in Ibiza, Friday Night in Amsterdam and Saturday night in Manchester and on some of the Bank Holiday weekends during Musical Festival
Season the top guys can sometimes do sets in 2 or 3 countries in one 24hr period, flying between venues by private jets.

With this sort of lifestyle, it is important that the ground transport, works like clockwork. At Intx we have been working with many of these
artists for many years and understand what is required and that their agents receive all the information that they need, vehicle details, driver
details, distance between Hotels and Venues. Artist can be very demanding, they often are very specific on the models of cars that they are prepared to travel in, including whether they are standard or long wheelbase models, what colour they should be, whether they have tinted windows one artist even specified what temperature the air conditioning should be set at depending on the outside temperature.

If artists are performing Liverpool, they will generally require Manchester Airport to Liverpool airport transfer to Hotel and hotel to venue
and with returns after their set. However, they sometimes they will do sets in two cities that are quite close like Liverpool & Manchester or
Nottingham & Birmingham and then require a transfer to different city afterwards.  For the big artists we also have requests to look after sound
Lighting and Audi Visual engineers, who need to set up before artist comes onto stage.
