Where Can I Buy A SAVER?

You can buy our citySAVER and networkSAVER tickets for periods lasting for 1 day; 7 days; 28 days; 90 days or a year. We strongly recommend buying tickets in advance as in most cases this is the cheapest option. You can buy in advance on our m-ticket app available on your smartphone, see here for details. You can also buy in advance online on the key smartcard or from our 1 Stop Travel shop, 26 North Street, Brighton, BN1 1EB or from our reception at 43 Conway Street, Hove, BN3 3LT. Please note that purchases made for the key smartcard in store will cost slightly more. For full details on these prices, click here.

Both the citySAVER and networkSAVER can be purchased for 1 day's travel directly from the bus driver on your first journey. The prices of these tickets from the driver are slightly more and prices can be found here.

We also have a scratch off style networkSAVER for 1 day or 7 days available from many shops, but these do cost a little more than buying in advance. A full list of shops selling our networkSAVER tickets is available here.

Additional Information

All of our 1 day SAVER tickets have a day expiry time which starts at 4:30am and end the following day at 4:30am. This doesn't take into account the time the ticket has been activated.

Please note that SAVER tickets purchased in advance on the key smartcard remain available for use for 12 months after the purchase date and then expire. Scratch off style SAVER tickets have an expiry date on them which ends on 31 December of the latest year given on the ticket, and cannot be replaced or refunded once this expiry date has passed.
