High Peak offer a wide range of tickets for different occasions. You can buy a single ticket from the driver as you board the bus. Day and period return tickets are available on most services, but it’s always worth considering a day, weekly or combination ticket that could save you money.

We prefer if you have the exact fare for your journey, but if you don’t, our friendly drivers carry change. Click here to find out more about our change policy.

Return Tickets

Day returns are sold on most of our services and offer travel back later the same day at a discount price, usually giving a saving of up to 30p and in some cases even more. Period returns offer return travel for customers not travelling again on the same day. Ask your High Peak driver as you board the bus. Period returns are valid for 28 days since purchase. 

TANGO! Return

If you usually buy a return ticket, take a friend with you and you can save 25% on the price of two returns. At weekends and school holidays you can take two kids (up to the age of 16) for free. Period TANGO! returns are valid for 28 days since their purchase. 

Weekly Tickets

If you travel regularly with us, our drivers can offer a full range of weekly tickets on most routes. The price is determined by the journey you make, and the bus driver will be able to tell you the exact price for your trip, or you can contact us for further information.
