Buying tickets for others
ALSA allows customers to buy tickets and passes for other passengers via any of our sales channels. To do this, the passenger's details must be supplied.
The passenger may not make use of any specific customer discounts (Large Family, Disability, Unemployment, etc.) if they do not fulfil the corresponding requirements. If they do meet the requirements, on boarding they will be required to show valid ID providing that they are entitled to the discount.
ALSAPLUS+ customers buying tickets for other passengers should bear in mind:
- If you are entitled to a special fare (Youth, Over 60s, etc.), the passenger may only make use of the corresponding discount if they also fulfil the conditions for the fare.
- You may use your points and discount codes (Birthday, Anniversary, etc.) to buy tickets for other passengers.
- You can save on booking fees buying tickets for others from the second purchase made since you subscribed to the ALSAPLUS+ programme.
