Changes to Hertfordshire Savercard fares on Centrebus services

 

What is changing?

The discount being offered to savercard pass holders for day, week, termly and academic year tickets is being reduced to 20%. Savercard monthly tickets will also be withdrawn.

 

Why is this happening?

The savercard scheme only offers a 50% discount on single and return tickets. Due to increased cost pressures that the business is facing (including rising fuel and staffing costs), against a backdrop reducing subsidy from local authorities and government, we can no longer offer the same level of discount across our range of tickets.  Standard monthly tickets are already heavily discounted and therefore we are unable to offer a further discount to children/savercard holders.

 

When is this happening?

On the 5th August 2018.

 

I normally buy a termly, academic year or annual ticket through the customer services team or your online shop. Are there any changes I should be aware of?

Termly and academic year tickets will still be available to purchase as normal, but the discount available will be 20% of the adult fare.

Annual savercard tickets will no longer be available, but you will still be able to purchase a standard rate annual ticket.

 

Are you offering any early bird discounts on academic year tickets?

Yes, a 10% early bird discount will apply to academic year tickets only from 1st June 2018 to 31st July 2018.  As these tickets will commence from the new academic year the revised discounted rate for savercard holders will apply to the prices.
