'Trip and Collect' with Xplore Dundee

Xplore Dundee’s making it easier and cheaper for local people to find everything on their Christmas lists, without racking up the online delivery charges. 

The bus operator’s reminding passengers to take advantage of two of its newest discount tickets – the Group Saver and Evening Saver.

Managing Director Elsie Turbyne said: “Shopping online is quick and easy, but the home delivery charges can start to add up.  Why not order your Christmas gifts to collect for free from Dundee’s stores and take the bus instead?  

“For roughly the same price as one home delivery, you can buy a Daysaver ticket and pick up all your orders in town or at the city’s retail parks.   And while you’re there, meet a friend, visit one of the Christmas markets or enjoy a hot chocolate or festive drink at one of the city’s many cafes and bars.”

With just three weekends left before Christmas, the Group Saver is perfect for groups of family or friends hitting the shops or the town; the ticket allows up to five people to hop on and off all buses, all day for as little as £1.60 each. 

Alternatively the Evening Saver is available from 6pm until last bus any night of the week – leave the car at home and let Xplore Dundee be your designated driver for just £3. 

The tickets can also be used for any of the bus operator’s ’50 Ways to Xplore Dundee’ this Christmas – the festive booklet is available now online (at xploredundee.com) or in community centres and the Travel Shop in Dundee. 

The leaflet highlights various attractions in and around the city this festive season, as well as the bus operator’s special Christmas and New Year timetables and Travel Shop opening hours, and includes details of the last bus times for all the upcoming public holidays.
