Student and Child Direct Debit Tickets

Save money with Student and Child Annual Saver tickets by paying monthly via Direct Debit

Spread the cost of your Student or Child Annual ticket over affordable monthly payments with ease using Direct Debit.

It’s a simple process to apply and there’s no setup fee or minimum contract, which means you can cancel your Direct Debit at any time. This makes it an ideal way for you to get reduced price bus travel without having to pay upfront.

When registered, Arriva will send you a bus pass by post. Your pass will be automatically renewed every month for as long as your Direct Debit remains active. Alternatively, you can choose to have an m-ticket sent to your phone if you have the Arriva UK Bus app. An annual m-ticket will be sent to your app and we reserve the right to cancel this should any subsequent monthly payments fail.

Once you have your bus pass, you won't need to worry about paying bus fare. You'll be able to hop on and relax, knowing you've saved some money through our Direct Debit scheme. What’s more, your Saver ticket doesn’t just provide reduced priced bus travel when traveling to and from school, college or university. It can be used at any time; evenings, weekends and right through term holidays!
