What they say

She Parsons

Amazing, wouldn’t have done R&V any other way. Their packages not only save you the hassle of having to rough it out, it’s super organised and cost effective. Had a blast, and the hassle-free way it’s organised by Festmate probably contributed to that x

Bobbie Callighan

Was a really easy way to organise myself and trip to RnV. Made life so much better when it came to sorting out weekly payments and haveing the team to communicate with to help us with everything in our package, and what to expect. was very seamless and easy. S/O to Sam for being a GC and putting up with our annoying questions!
Thanks guys was a big help!
