Paying too much for travel? | Watch out for doorstep scams

Dear Mr

August is the perfect time of year to hop on the train, bus or coach for a day out. Transport can be expensive, but if you’re savvy you can take advantage of some great discounts for older people. 

These discounts aren’t usually given to you automatically – you often have to submit an application to the service provider. If you're not sure where to start, don't worry - we've got all the information you need.

Once you’ve sorted out your discounted travel, how about taking a day out to one of these unusual locations which are all free of charge!

Best wishes,

85% of all doorstep scam victims are aged 65 and over. Take these precautions so you don’t get caught out.

Don’t assume all exercise is the same – there's something for all abilities and the benefits can be very different.
