Your 2for1 ticket will be a mobile ticket, so you pay within the app and show your ticket on your smartphone to the driver (see how to purchase the offer below). An adult mobile day ticket normally costs £2-£7.80 depending on which region you're in, so if two of you are travelling together, you can make a decent saving.

Arriva buses run in the North East, North West and South East of England, the Midlands, Yorkshire and Wales. The offer's not available on the red buses Arriva runs for Transport for London.

How do I get the 2for1 ticket?

  • Download the free 'Arriva m-ticket' app for iPhone or Android and register.
  • Go to the 'Buy Tickets' menu and select the region and zone you want to travel in.
  • Purchase the 2for1 day ticket in advance.
  • When you're ready to use the ticket on any one day between Fri 14 Apr and Mon 17 Apr, click 'Activate' (only on the day you want to travel) and then show your phone to the bus driver.

The 2for1 ticket gives you and another person travelling with you unlimited travel on the day it's activated, but you can only use it in the region you selected when buying the ticket. You can only get this offer once per smartphone, so you'll only be able to get this deal on one day.

Section 75

Free protection for all shopping!

There's a little-known piece of legislation that turns any credit card into a financial self-defence superhero. 'Section 75' of the Consumer Credit Act means your plastic must protect anything you buy for more than £100 for free, so if there's a problem or the company goes bust, you can still get your money back.

And although Section 75 doesn't apply to debit cards, there is something else to fall back on if you've paid using a debit card, or used a credit card for a purchase under £100. Known as Chargeback, this is part of banks' and card companies' internal rules and not a legal requirement. Read full details of Section 75 or Chargeback, plus how to claim, in our guides.
