About SaverCard

There's no obligation for bus companies to provide half fare travel to children so we provide a scheme called Hertfordshire SaverCard.

A SaverCard entitles the holder to travel for half the adult fare at all times on local bus services within Hertfordshire and to certain destinations outside the county (see Terms and conditions).

You must have a valid Hertfordshire SaverCard with you when you travel, otherwise you'll be charged the full adult fare.
