How will you spend your Summer?

Get out there this Summer with McGill's!

From saving on bus tickets to taking trips by the seaside, here's our advice for making the most of the warmer weather.

With sunshine shining down on our shores and the school holidays just beginning, summer has well and truly arrived in Scotland. 

But for many parents, the thought of keeping the wee ones entertained for seven weeks is even harder to handle than the rising temperatures. But, we have come up with lots of ideas for day trips that will keep everyone happy - and save you some cash!

The schools are out from Friday 29 June, and it's that time of year when thoughts turn towards how to keep the kids amused, and to organising some affordable family days out - that don't break the bank!

Get Around for £1 and £5 this Summer!

Our amazing Get Around for a Pound ticket for 5-15 year olds is back again this Summer - and it's here for every day of the school holidays! Where kids can travel unlimited all-day, across every McGill's service for £1. McGill's Get Around for £5 ticket is back this summer too, which means all kids weekly tickets are just £5, and you can save even more by traveling unlimited for 7 days across the network 70p per day.

Both tickets are available via McGill's m-ticket app and on bus. The £5 weekly ticket is available on GoSmart too!

Get Around for a Pound tickets and child £5 weekly tickets are available from 29 June - 15 August. Great news for the whole family - either for a day out , or for teenagers wanting to get out and about with the parents.

Why not take advantage of our gifting feature on our mobile app! Meaning you can gift a ticket to another phone, saving you searching for change for the kids!
