Check your ticket

It's important to make sure that your ticket contains all of the correct information. Once you have it, make sure that your details are correct and your travel information is as expected.

Before leaving home

Before you set off for the coach station, run through our checklist to make sure you have everything you need:

  • Aim to arrive at the coach station at least 10 minutes before you're due to depart - this helps your coach to keep to its scheduled timetable.
  • Make sure you have your ticket to hand and that it is valid for the coach you want to travel on (most importantly, the right time and date!). If you've booked using a Coachcard, make sure you bring it with you, along with a proof of age.
  • Travelling with an open-return ticket? Make sure to validate the ticket in advance by using the manage my booking tool online, or by calling our Contact Centre before departing.
  • Check that your luggage is securely fastened and labelled with your contact details in case of loss.
  • Plan your journey - make sure you know where your destination stop is, what time you'll arrive there and where you need to go once you get off the coach.
  • Want to know exactly where your coach is? Keep track of its journey - even before you get onboard - by using our Coach Tracker.
