    search google for business startup advice.

    its a viable idea, but don't be under any illusion of how hard it can/probably will be to start up and run a successful business like that.
    thank you

    I look forward to seeing your business plan as I can't see a penny in what you think you are offering. Have you actually worked out where you fit in to purchasing the tickets and where you actually make the money?

    I wouldn't say its a fair chunk?

    As far as I understand it, a Ltd. company can be set up and registered for under £150?
    Yep you can get an off-the-hook company for around that price, but with a limited company you have much stricter laws around things like accounting which mean you pretty much have to hire an accountant and that kind of stuff drives the cost up.

    Still at the level the OPs looking to invest it's still pretty affordable.

    Silly idea as you don't appear to have a sound business plan, the economic time means it just isn't sensible to set up a business right now, you'd be better off sitting out the recession, keeping your hard earned money should anything go wrong in relation to your job and in your spare time, properly think through the idea of starting up a business.

    This. Particularly a business in this sector, anyway.

    Doesn't sound like theres enough money to be made to make it worthy, plus demand is obviously much lower in a recession. And maybe you dont have the time to run a business..no uni/school commitments?

    Ah point taken, I was only really taking into account the original set up costs of the company and not bearing in mind the extra costs that being Ltd. may incur.

    Yes but unless you get an explosion of business, you'll eat up all your capital pretty fast, trading with thin margins. You have to find a way to make your service more value added. At the moment, all you're doing is being a middle man, you're not exactly co-ordinating a state visit. Unless you can arrange a deal with Tussauds (for example) to cut your cost in buying the tickets, or get something complimentary thrown in for your punters, I don't see how I can't just phone up Alton Towers, say "I've got a party of 8 that wants to come to your amusement park. Can I book a group ticket please?" and then hire a minibus, or easier, get 2 people to drive.
