Buy your tickets online and save
We recommend purchasing your tickets online as this provides you with the opportunity to save money. We regularly provide special offers on fixed date tickets purchased on our website. Select your ticket type and preferred date in the booking engine to see the best available price.
Please note that fixed date discounts are only available in advance and tickets will be full price if purchased online on the day you intend to travel.
How will I redeem my e-ticket?
Please bring your printed e–ticket with you, and present it to a member of Big Bus staff at your chosen boarding point. E-tickets are named. You will be asked to present the credit card you used when making the booking as proof of identification. If this presents a problem, please contact us and we'll be happy to process your booking over the phone.
Tickets straight to your smartphone
If you have access to a smartphone with internet access, then you will have the option to have your tickets sent to your mobile. If you choose this option then you will receive an SMS message with a web link to your unique QR code ticket. Simply present your QR code to a member of the Big Bus sales team before boarding the bus and you will then receive a paper ticket, which you will need to retain throughout your journey.
Tickets on the day
Please note that fixed date discounts are not available on the day of travel. If you wish to purchase tickets on the day, please purchase open date tickets. You are welcome to purchase your tickets on the day from a member of Big Bus staff at any one of the Big Bus boarding points. Please see the Tour Map for details.
