TravelWise Week

13 October 2022

TravelWise Week was postponed due to the period of national mourning, and now runs from 16-22 October 2022. This year the theme is better connected. Lots of BetterPoints users shared their thoughts on the theme for our top prize draw last month, so we'll be sharing some of the best during the event.‍

We've also got some fantastic prizes up for grabs. There will be three separate prize draws for 20,000 BetterPoints every day, with one BetterTicket entry per five minutes of travel by each mode. You can earn up to 10 BetterTickets per mode each day, entering you into the following day's draws for:

🚢🏽 Walking and wheeling
🚴 Cycling
🚌 Public transport

Here's how it works: you cycle for ten minutes to the bus stop, lock your bike up and take a fifteen-minute bus ride into town, then walk for five minutes from the bus stop to a local cafe. You earn two BetterTickets for the cycling draw, three entries into the bus draw and one BetterTicket for the walking and wheeling draw. And that's just on the way there!

One journey using three different modes of transport means you are in the draws for £60's worth of prizes. The next day, you just need to check your timeline to see if you're one of three lucky winners. Plan ahead for how you can TravelWise to be more active, try new ways to get around and maximise your chances of winning!
