Apply for a KCC 16+ Travel Saver

Share the fare with Kent County Council and save up to 50%.

You needed to apply by 14 July 2019 to get your pass for the start of term in September.

Applying online is the most convenient way to get your KCC 16+ Travel Saver. You can only apply online using a laptop, desktop or Mac computer (mobile devices and tablets are not supported).

The pass costs the same no matter when you apply for it, so the earlier you apply the more value you get and the longer the period available to spread the payments if you are paying by Direct Debit. View an example of Direct Debit instalments.

Before you apply please read:

Late applications

We are aware that some customers who applied by our recommended July deadline and who have opted to pay by Direct Debit instalments still haven’t received their Travel Saver passes. This is due to unforeseen difficulties we have experienced in processing these applications.

We are very sorry about this and we are working hard to make sure students get their passes as soon as possible.

If you have applied for your pass within the past month, it could take up to 28 working days to process your application from the date you applied.

If you have already called or emailed us, we will reply but it could take up to a week to do so while we prioritise getting passes out to schools. We thank you for your patience.

We don't refund fares you pay whilst waiting for the pass to arrive or provide letters or emails to show the driver.
