Do I need to specify a date for travel?

No, you can use your ticket on any of the operation days. If you purchase a ticket that's valid for more than one day you must travel on consecutive days.
Bus tour tickets are typically valid for six months from date of purchase.

What is your policy in the event of bad weather?

With the exception of extreme weather conditions that would jeopardise safety, our tours operate in all weather, rain or shine. Refunds due to weather will not be granted unless the service is suspended as a result of weather.

I bought the ticket but it’s for someone else. It has my name on it, is this ok?

You're all set! Simply show your voucher(s) to any member of on-street staff who will scan the QR code and hand over your yellow Big Bus Tour tickets. Don't lose them, they're like gold (cash) and cannot be replaced.

I bought my ticket but now can’t make that date, can I use it on another day?

Bus tour tickets purchased are typically valid for six months up until the point of the ticket being scanned (redeemed) – then the clock starts ticking and you’ll need to enjoy your tour within the time purchased. This is usually, one or two days.


In the event that Big Bus is unable to provide a service throughout the period of the validity of your ticket through circumstances within its control, you shall be entitled to a full or partial refund of the price of your ticket.
