Coach Travel Around England Gets Costlier

From the end of October (Yes! that’s this month!) travelling by coach around England will become costlier for many people. Over 60s won’t benefit any longer from the government supported fare reduction scheme for the elderly and disabled. The “coach concessionary discount scheme” which currently allows people over 60 or with a disability to travel by coach for up to half price is being discontinued.

However, there is some good news. You can still use the scheme provided that you book by midnight on 31 October 2011 and will be travelling on or before 31 August 2012.

So if you’re planning a break, or visits to family, before the end of August next year and are thinking of travelling by coach make sure you click on either the banner at the head of this article or on the link here to book with National Express.

August 31st is well after the end of the holiday season for many over-60s so your holidays next year to the northern national parks, the Lake District, the Yorkshire Dales, Northumberland and the North York Moors can still include savings on the coach fares – providing you book by 31 October 2011. So book now at National Express.

Don’t delay! From October 31st it will all change – National Express.
