Robins Travel Club
Becoming a member of the Robins Official Travel Club allows you to enjoy inexpensive coach transport to all our away games. The small annual fee ensures that members receive discounts and priority allocation for their coach seats.
Arrival at our intended destination is normally about an 60/90 minutes before the kick off which allows time to take in the sights or get something to eat and drink before the match. All our travel club coaches return to Cheltenham immediately after the game, ideal for those of you who want to enjoy an evening back at home.
We use modern reliable transport and each coach has a designated steward and toilet facilities. We drop you off as close to the ground as possible and ensure that everyone is accounted for at the pick-up point following the game.
Travel must be booked on a game-to-game basis and by taking out your yearly travel club membership, at just £10.00 per person, members are rewarded with a £2.00 discount off the standard travel price for the vast majority of games.
For further information about the Official Travel Club call Alan Brown at the football club on (01242) 573558. Coach tickets and travel club membership can be purchased through the Ticket Office at The Abbey Business Stadium.
