Britons who are thinking of visiting loved ones this Christmas should first check whether they are eligible for a free bus pass.
It could end up saving them a fortune in travel costs and if they’ve recently turned 66 they may not realise that they have this option.
In Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, people can hop on the buses for free when they are 60, which has led to some frustration amongst people that the rules are not the same for everyone throughout the UK.
It is the same in London and select parts of England, where residents can travel during off peak hours for free when they are 60. Londoners, however, must keep within the city if they want free travel.
