Where can I use it? 

Saveaway tickets are valid on buses, trains and Mersey Ferries* in in either one area or all areas across Merseyside. If you find that your journey will take you outside your chosen ticket’s area, simply pay the normal fare for the ‘extra’ part of your journey before the journey begins. You will need an all-areas Saveaway for journeys across two or more areas, for journeys beyond the Merseyside boundary (by rail only) as far as Chester, Ellesmere Port and Ormskirk, and for cross river journeys only on Mersey Ferries. *To enjoy the full, continuous River Explorer Cruise you can either buy a supplementary ticket for your Saveaway or you can buy a full River Explorer Cruise ticket from the terminal when collecting your boarding pass.

When can I use it? 

Saveaways are one-day tickets for off peak-travel. You can use a Saveaway at any time EXCEPT for journeys which start between 6.31am and 9.29am on Mondays to Fridays. They can be used all-day on Bank Holidays too.

Where can I buy it? 

Pay Point stores in Merseyside, Merseytravel Centres, staffed stations in Merseyside and City line self service ticket machines in Merseyside.  A Saveaway ticket purchased from a City line station will be a paper ticket and valid only on the day of purchase.
