Terms and conditions
How do I prove I qualify for a discount?
Carousel Buses drivers may request proof of age for anyone asking for a child fare regardless of age, and will always need to see photo-ID for young person’s 18 & under who have such products on our app or the key.
What proof of age/student identification is valid?
Due to the large number of different schemes in operation Carousel Buses urge all children 12 years of age and older and all students of any age to apply for an ISIC - International Student Identity Card. This is an internationally recognised student identification scheme and the best way to demonstrate eligibility for child fares or student fares on our buses. Please note the ISIC card must be a physical card (not digital) and have a picture of the holder shown on it.
In addition to the ISIC card we will accept photo-ID issued by the following institutions providing it states the holder is a student:
Buckinghamshire College Group, Bucks New University (BNU), Brunel University, Uxbridge College
We will also accept a photographic driving license and passport for use with our young person’s 18 and under ticket range. No other forms of student identification are valid for student discount on our services. Photo-ID proof of age cards from nationally recognised schemes such as the Citizencard will be accepted as proof of age for passengers under the age of 16 asking for child fares.
