National Express has launched a revised coach travel discount for its over 60 and disabled passengers.
The move, starting November 1, follows the removal of the Government funded concessionary scheme at midnight on October 31, which offered these passengers up to 50% discount off all coach journeys made within England or across the Scottish and Welsh borders.
The operator will offer over 60s and disabled passengers a third off coach travel at all times – even during Christmas and other peak travel periods. To be eligible passengers will need to purchase an annual senior or disabled person’s discount card at a cost of £10 per year. The discount will not be available on journeys which start or finish at airports.
MD of National Express coach, Andrew Cleaves, said: “We know how highly our over 60 and disabled passengers value discounted coach travel. We hope the new travel cards and discount will to prove popular with these passengers, by continuing to offer great value travel on National Express’ unique national network which serves nearly 1,000 destinations.”
The Senior and Disabled Coachcards are available to purchase from all National Express outlets as well as the company’s website www.nationalexpress.com and customer contact centre 08717 818181
