Becoming a student represents a major change in the life of young people and their families. It may mean leaving home and living independently for the first time, perhaps moving to a new and unfamiliar area. Living to a budget may well be a new experience for many, and bus travel may not feature very highly on priority lists.

We recognise this at Arriva, and know that parents at least will be happier knowing that things like getting to and from lectures are covered, the ability to go out and shop for food and being able to make the most of all the new activities and experiences that will on offer to the new student. Some parents buy their fledgling student’s first tickets to give them peace of mind that at least the basic essential of travel is taken care of.

Mobile ticketing

Some people worry about the risk of losing paper tickets if they buy for a lengthy period. However it’s probably less likely that they’ll lose their smart phone, so Student Saver tickets can be bought on iPhone or Android smart phones and delivered instantly to the phone, or bought online and then delivered to the phone. There is also a postal delivery option for tickets bought online.
