As a student, we know saving all the money you can is important! Red Arrow offers a couple different ways for students to save on travel.

First of all, students travel for less all year long. When booking by phone, just let the Passenger Experience Representative know you’re a student, and show your student ID when travelling to receive a Student Discounted Rate. Once this rate is applied to your profile, you will receive a discounted rate on all trips until you graduate. Or register online with your student ID number. Check out just how easy it can be with our simple booking info-graphic.

Second, Student Express 5 Packs are available to all students. Each Student Express Pack gives you 5 one-way trips for the price of 4. For students who travel often, this is the best deal Red Arrow offers!

And best of all? Your parents will love it! We’ve found that parents appreciate the convenience of our Student Express Packs and will often use them as gifts for college students who plan to travel home for a visit.

Sign me up, you say? You can purchase your Student Express Pack online, over the phone, or at any of our ticket locations.
