Our work together

Travel is an essential way for Girlguiding’s young members’ to explore new locations and opportunities. By working together Girlguiding and National Express will help over half a million girls to build confidence and independence through discovering new locations and experiences. Travel is a great way of having new experiences, gaining confidence and growing independence.

As the UK’s largest scheduled coach operator and as part of their Youth Promise, National Express is excited to support Girlguiding in the following ways:

  • Girlguiding members and parents receive a 25% discount off standard National Express and Eurolines fares
  • Girlguiding members receive a 10% discount off quotes for private coach hire

"The Guide Association was established in 1909 - thanks to the efforts of many intrepid girls who refused to accept that scouting was 'just for boys'. Soon, these young women began completing badges in sailing, aviation and home electrics.

Later still, Girlguiding members were making important contributions to the First World War effort – growing food, acting as messengers for government organisations and working in hospitals, factories and soup kitchens."

About Girlguiding

Girlguiding has a long history of empowering girls and young women to be their best. From a small handful of girls who gatecrashed the first ever Scout rally, demanding ‘something for the girls’, Girlguiding has grown into a vast and vibrant network of members across the UK.

It's been over 100 years since Girlguiding was established, and Girlguiding members are still pushing boundaries and achieving great things.
