With inflation soaring, £2 won’t get you far these days. But if you want to get out and about for some Christmas catch-ups, Stagecoach West is offering a day’s travel, for groups of up to four people, for just £2 per group.

The Cheltenham and Gloucester Group DayRider offer will run every Saturday in December within Cheltenham and Gloucester. Outside of the offer period, it would typically cost £10.60 to travel. 

It is valid for groups of four or less, including solo passengers, and covers travel anywhere beginning or ending in the Cheltenham and Gloucester zone. 

Managing director Stagecoach West, Rachel Geliamassi, said: 'We’re delighted to offer our passengers a saving this festive season. Get the bus and you'll avoid queues and searching for that elusive parking space, not to mention saving on the cost of fuel. 

'We’re all feeling the pinch, but we don’t want that to deter families and friends from making memories together this Christmas. By offering a discounted rate of £2, we hope it’ll encourage people to enjoy the great festive events happening this December.'

Chief executive of Cheltenham BID, Heath Gunter, said: 'At a time when we are all looking for more affordable ways to travel, I don’t think you can beat £2 for a group ticket for four people. Cheltenham BID is pleased to support this offer and looks forward to seeing Stagecoach West customers in the town centre.'

The offer is available on Saturday 3 December, Saturday 10 December, Saturday 17 December and Saturday 24 December 2022.

Payment is accepted via Apple Pay, Google Pay, contactless card or cash.
