Stagecoach supports staycations
Stagecoach has launched a new customer rewards scheme that helps support staycations (holidays and day trips within the UK).
The scheme provides special offers right across the country in the leisure sector, including visitor attractions, places to eat out and hotels. Called Stagecoach Rewards, it is designed to support local attractions and retailers, with each of Stagecoach’s 17 regions regularly seeing new local offers as well as a range of discounts for national visitor attractions. The project is intended to encourage people to make use of their local attractions, enjoy what Stagecoach calls the ‘Great British Staycation’ and use sustainable and easy public transport for their journeys.
Buses play a vital role in helping to restart the economy and supporting communities, according to Stagecoach. Research by Greener Journeys shows that people use buses to make shopping and leisure trips to the value of £27 billion a year.
Carla Stockton-Jones, Interim Managing Director UK for Stagecoach, said: “Our services play a really important role in getting people back together and connecting them to the things they enjoy most, such as days out, shopping trips, meeting up with friends and family, nights away and meals out.
“We want to support our local attractions right across the country and help them to recover from the terrible impact of Covid-19. This new scheme will offer a range of discounts for customers to shop, eat out and visit tourist attractions in their local area, but will also provide choices for people wanting to take a longer distance day out or night away.
“It’s crucial that we now all work together more closely than ever before to support our local communities and help restart the economy. Our bus services offer an easy, safe and environmentally friendly way to support the leisure sector and can help people get back to the things that they enjoy doing.”
