Looks OK from here (I booked a few days ago, but just checked again). Did you remember to select passenger type on the search page?

Passenger type?
Human, Dwarf, Troll, Vampire, Werewolf, Golem, Gnome, Elf, Feegle, anthropomorphic personification ?

In that case I had better get my finger out and get my seat booked, Gnomi have you tried phoning them to book and pay on the bus. :mrgreen:

No, they don't ask for species, only age (child, adult, senior...). Although it seems unfair that an adult feegle would pay full price.

Still unable to book online. I emailed Berrys yesterday and they said to phone them to book.

Is anyone travelling down from London on the Thursday Afternoon Berry's coach from Hammersmith to Wincanton?
It would be good to have some company!
I booked on their website ages ago, and had no problem at all.

I will be travelling from gatwick on thursday evening, it isn't a spectacularly huge car but we can probably squeeze another person in, anyone interested pm me.

Had to book by phone. Bit worried I'll turn up at Hammersmith and my name won't be on the list! :)

Hi Gnomie,
If you need it, I can offer a lift down and back, (heading south on the Friday afternoon), and pausing at Salisbury to pick up my partner in crime, Lor.
I'm Cambridge based so picking up in Essex could be easy.
Let me know
