Arriva and Visit Kent give families double the fun this summer

Summer fun in KentFamilies travelling with Arriva in Kent and Surrey this summer will be getting much more than they bargained for!

Arriva has not only reduced the cost of their group travel ticket, but has also teamed up with Visit Kent on their 2for1 campaign to offer passengers amazing two for one deals on days out and activities across the county.

From May to August, Arriva will reduce the price of their Family Ticket to just £10. The ticket allows two adults and two children or one adult and three children to enjoy a day’s unlimited travel on all Arriva bus services throughout Kent and Surrey.

Not only will families benefit from bargain tickets, but, in Kent, they will also be able to access a range of exciting 2for1 offers from Visit Kent with their travel ticket, including entrance to visitor attractions, food and drink deals, accommodation offers and activities for all the family.

Arriva Southern Counties’ Quality Service Director Brian Drury said: “We know it can be difficult to think of fun things to do as a family in the summer, particularly in the school holidays.

“By working in partnership with Visit Kent we believe that we can encourage more groups and families to enjoy a great-value day out by bus.”

Chief executive of Visit Kent Sandra Matthews-Marsh MBE said: “We are delighted to be working with Arriva so that families can use this great-value ticket to access 2for1 offers at a whole host of attractions and venues – explore the Historic Dockyard in Chatham, go shopping at Bluewater or enjoy an afternoon tea in Rochester or Royal Tunbridge Wells.”

Also welcoming the initiative, Gail James, Communications Manager for The Historic Dockyard, said “It’s great to be working in partnership with Arriva again and to be part of the Visit Kent 2 for 1 campaign.

“Arriva’s £10 day ticket for families offers really good value which I’m sure will prove to be very popular and we’re looking forward to welcoming lots of Arriva’s customers to The Historic Dockyard.

“Affordable transport is a key element to a great-value day out and we’re pleased to be involved with this initiative.”
