Cheap Transport in North Hampshire

This weeks theme is all about travel so I’ve done a bit of research into cheap travel options in the area.

Buses

Mega Rider Gold – £19.50 – includes Hampshire, Surrey, West Sussex and Brighton

Mega Rider ticket – 7 days travel for £11.70.

Unfortunately I couldn’t find anything online to support these costs (don’t know where I found them now! lol) but I did find a website which said you could buy the weekly tickets from the bus driver. Click HERE for more details.

Mega Rider ticket – 4 weeks travel for £43.50 – 52 weeks for £460. You can purchase tickets that are 4 weeks or more online HERE.

If you are traveling to South Hampshire you may be interested in the First Day Hampshire Family ticket which is run by First services. It’s a shame we don’t have a similar service in North Hampshire!

“Family travel on all First services in Hampshire for just £10 this summer!

We’re pleased to announce we’re reducing the price of our FirstDay Hampshire Family ticket to just £10 for the summer!

Normally £13, from 22 July – 1 September 2012, a family of 5 (max 2 adults) can travel as much as they like on one day on First buses in Hampshire for just £10. That’s unlimited travel for just £2.00 each (if used by 5 people!)”

The Family & Friends Railcard

“Costing just £28, for a 1 year Railcard or £65 for a 3 year Railcard, the Family & Friends Railcard saves you 1/3 off adult and 60% off kids’ fares across Britain for a year. If you travel with a child between five and 15 years old then you’re eligible.

Your Railcard gives you more than cheap travel! With your Railcard you can also get fantastic offers on holidays, eating out, some of the UK’s top attractions and much more!”
