Alternative travel ticket offers in London

Ticket offers three unique ways to get around London

A unique ticket will offer visitors to London three exciting ways to travel around the city, using the Emirates Air Line, MBNA Thames Clippers and Santander Cycles for less.


Visitors can now enjoy an all-day ticket that offers scenic trips on MBNA Thames Clippers' high speed vessels along the River Thames, relaxing rides on Santander Cycles and a breath-taking flight on the Emirates Air Line cable car. Customers will save money by buying these combined offers as opposed to buying the tickets individually.
Visitors will be able to glide along the River Thames on an MBNA Thames Clippers catamaran with a hop-on, hop-off ticket, cycle round the city on a Santander Cycles and soar 90m above the river for stunning views of London, for a combined price of £25 offering a total saving of 20 per cent. The ticket offering Santander Cycles and MBNA Thames Clippers only will cost £16.70, which is also a saving of 20 per cent.
Leon Daniels, Managing Director of Surface Transport at TfL, said:
'The Explore London ticket combines three superb ways to travel around the city and enjoy the sights, all at a discounted price.
'Whether you're a visitor to the city or a Londoner you'll enjoy a high-speed trip along the River Thames, a relaxing ride on a Santander Cycle and the breath-taking views from the Emirates Air Line cable car.'
Tickets will be available via the MBNA Thames Clippers site for six months from 27 June, visit tfl.gov.uk/explore-london-tickets for more information.
