Adult daysaver5 - APP ONLY TICKET - Please download the Thames Valley Buses app

Our daysaver5 is designed for all our adult customers who still need to travel with us, but not as frequently. The daysaver5 bundle ticket allows you to buy 5 individual all-day tickets together with savings of up to 35%! You can buy them for each of the areas that our buses run in.

simplyReading daysaver5 £16
simplyNetwork daysaver5 £23

These individual tickets have no expiry. Each day is used independently so you could travel on a Monday and then still have four days left to travel later in the week, the following week or whenever you like.
