Passengers applying for a new Thamesdown Transport TravelCard will be getting even more value for money from now on, as they can access a free Swindon Loyalty Card at the same time, entitling them to discounts in almost 100 shops and venues in Swindon town centre.
Anyone ordering a new TravelCard online simply needs to tick the box that asks if they would like a Swindon Loyalty card. Once the application is processed they will receive a free personalised Swindon Loyalty Card.
The Swindon Loyalty Card is a scheme run by inSwindon BID Company, and offers cardholder generous discounts and other incentives on a range of goods and services. Businesses taking part include High Street brands and independent shops, a travel agent, hairdressers and beauty salons, pubs, restaurants and opticians.
Commercial director Peter Oliver said he is delighted to be able to offer customers a simple way of claiming a Swindon Loyalty Card.
“We make more than eight millions passenger journeys a year, and many of those start or finish in the town centre,” said Peter.
“There are some terrific discounts on offer, so we’re very pleased that we can help our passengers make shopping or meeting up with friends even more of a pleasure.”
inSwindon BID Manager, Di Powell said she was looking forward to working alongside Thamesdown Transport to promote the town centre Loyalty Card.
Di said: “The Loyalty Card is really easy to use and we hope that many of the TravelCard holders take advantage of the great offers we have in the town centre.”
The Thamesdown TravelCard can be used in several different ways.
It can be pre-loaded with travel to the value of £5, £10, £15 or £20 at the Thamesdown Travel Shop in Fleming Way and used as payment on the bus, or it can be loaded with a TravelPass ticket, which gives unlimited travel on all Thamesdown and Stagecoach buses within the Swindon urban area for periods of one, four or thirteen weeks.
Alternatively, it can be used to store a Multi-DayRider, providing six DayRiders for the price of five.
