Get on board Kent’s Discovery Ticket prize draw – just the ticket for half term

Parents and children are being invited to get on board a fantastic easy-to-enter, half-term prize draw to win family bus tickets.

Following the Kent launch of the South East region ‘Discovery Ticket’ last month, passengers can travel by bus from Thanet to Chichester, or Dartford to Brighton – anywhere in West Sussex, East Sussex, Surrey, Brighton & Hove, East Hampshire and Kent & Medway – with a Family Day Ticket for £16.00, an Adult Day Ticket (£8.50) or an individual Child Day Ticket at £7.

Now, Kent County Council is teaming up with local bus operators to offer parents and children who travel by a Discovery Ticket between Saturday 24 October and Sunday 1 November, the chance to win one of five prizes – each prize will comprise four family Discovery Tickets.


Competition entries should be submitted via Twitter. They simply need to take a ‘selfie’ picture showing them with their Discovery Ticket – either on board a bus, at a bus stop, or their destination – then Tweet this using the hashtag #HalfTermDiscovery.

Alternatively, entrants can submit their picture online at Prizes will be drawn at random.

Matthew Balfour, Kent County Council Cabinet Member for Environment and Transport, said: “The Discovery Ticket is fantastic value for money. We want to encourage more people to use it and the half term competition is an excellent opportunity for families to explore and discover the wonderful attractions the region has to offer by bus.

“We’re offering 20 Family Day Tickets to those who can show that they’ve travelled on a Discovery Ticket. Good luck.”

Kent County Council will then contact the five winners with details of how to collect their free Discovery Tickets.
