Child, young adult and student tickets

Adult fares apply to anyone aged 19 or above, but students 19+ can get up to 25% discount with a valid NUS card which must show a photograph of the holder and a valid expiry date. 


Freedom tickets are ideal for the regular traveler, they are available for unlimited travel across our network for 7, 30 or 90 consecutive days. The quickest and easiest way to buy 7, 30 and 90 day passes is via our Southern Vectis app . For child and young adult tickets you do need to complete a verification process via the app, but it is very simple and quick to do.

If you only travel now and again multi-day tickets are a cheaper way of buying single journeys. These are available on the key or in our mobile app. Available in 5, 15 and 30 day bundles these tickets give you unlimited travel across our network including open-top and seasonal routes. Days do not have to be used consecutively and are valid for two years after purchase. Please note that multi-day bundle tickets are special offer tickets and may be withdrawn from sale without notice.
