Drivers are able to refund card transactions at the point of purchase only. If you request a refund, the driver will issue you with a ticket which will say ‘EMV Credit Note’. Please then allow up to 5 working days to see refunds on your account. Drivers are not able to provide a cash refund.
If you should request a refund after purchase, you will then need to contact Customer Services at firstname.lastname@example.org with the following information:
Customer services will then consider your request and process a refund if appropriate.
Contactless cards will display the contactless symbol. Most new cards are issued with this feature. If your card is not currently contactless, speak to your bank to ask if your card can be updated.
Contactless is a simple and secure way to pay for bus travel without needing cash. Contactless payments can be made for any tickets up to the transaction value of €30/£30.
If you use a card for a payment which is subsequently declined due to not having enough money in your account, your card will be blocked by our ticket machines. We will try again to recover the money owed automatically after 7 days or if you try to use the card again. Your card will be blocked until a payment is made successfully for the amount outstanding.
From time to time, we authorise an amount of 10p. This allows us to check with your card issuer that the card is valid. This will be replaced by the full transaction amount in 24-48 hours.
Payment cards displaying the contactless logo from Visa or Mastercard logo can be used. We also accept Apple Pay and Google Pay. We are currently unable to accept payments by American Express.
Contactless payment is on all of our Aircoach services as long as the total amount does not exceed €50/£50.
You can use contactless to purchase any paper tickets to the value of €30/£30. This can include more than one ticket in a single transaction, e.g. an adult and a child ticket. However, the total price cannot exceed €30/£30.
Drivers will not know the reason why a payment did not work. If a payment fails, you may wish to try a different card or pay using an alternative payment method such as cash or purchasing a ticket via the mTicket app.
Some of the reasons why a card may not work include:
If a card does not work, please contact your issuing bank for advice.
A national limit for contactless payments has been set by all banks to €50/£50.
Yes, you will get a receipt once your transaction has gone through, along with a ticket for your journey.
Most contactless cards issued outside of the UK & Ireland will be accepted on our ticket machines. However, if a card doesn't work, please contact your card issuer. Cards issued outside of the UK & Ireland may incur a further overseas transaction fee, applied by your card issuer.
No, this option is not currently available.
It's your responsibility to ensure your phone has enough battery power to show a valid mTicket to the driver, or to any ticket inspector throughout your journey. If your phone does run out of charge, you will need to buy a ticket from the driver.
We do not issue paper copies of mTickets. You will receive an email receipt when you make your purchase, but this will not be valid for travel.
With mTickets, it is the responsibility of the customer to ensure a working mobile phone is available to show the driver the ticket screen. If there is a problem with the system, please let us know and we'll do our best to help.
Buying tickets is simple! Once you've downloaded the app and created your account, just select the service you wish to travel on, either using the manual search tool or the list of suggested services, and then click on 'Buy your Ticket'. You'll then be able to choose which tickets you require from the product catalogue and head to the basket.
If the QR code is not being picked up by the ticket machine, please show the ticket screen to the driver. Providing you're travelling on the correct ticket, the digital copy of your mTicket is still valid for travel and will be accepted.
Receipts are sent to the email linked with the account at the time of purchase. If you're going to need your receipt, we would recommend double checking your account details are correct before making a ticket purchase.
Please note that this purchase receipt is not valid for travel, and you will need to show the driver your active mTicket displayed on the app.
No, the only way to guarantee a seat is to book online at www.aircoach.ie.
If you have ‘Apple Pay’ or ‘Google Pay’ set up on your phone, on the payment methods screen, 'Apple Pay’ or ‘Google Pay’ will appear as a payment option button. On the panel, select the card you want to use (of those stored in the wallet) and enter your Touch ID. The transaction will complete in a few moments.
No, the App is for individual use. To use the App an account must be set up. The tickets purchased are for use by the account holder and only one ticket can be activated at one time.
Tickets are non-transferable.
We can only provide refunds for unactivated tickets; any activated tickets are non-refundable.
Contact the mTicket support team on SSC-CustomerFeedback@firstbus.co.uk (So we can fully answer your enquiry please give us as much information as possible about the ticket type, device and operating system you are using) or 00443300 947 577. Normal opening hours: 7am – 10pm, seven days a week.
The activated ticket will only scan on the coach at the stop for which the ticket was purchased. If there is a seat available on the coach the driver will accept your ticket as long as it activated and is for a fare that is the same or higher than the fare charged for stop you wish to get on at.
Once a ticket is purchased and downloaded, it will appear in the 'purchased' section of the Ticket Wallet in your app. Tickets in this section are listed from the oldest at the top to the newest at the bottom.
When you want to use a ticket, select the one you want and then select 'Activate Now'.
You'll then be informed of how long the ticket will be active for, before confirming that you want to want to activate this ticket. We would advise reading this carefully to avoid activating unwanted tickets.
Once activated, the app will generate a moving ticket image on your phone's screen and a QR code. This will stay active for the remainder of the ticket's validity.
You'll need to scan the QR when you board the coach. We suggest you only activate the ticket just before you board the vehicle to ensure it’s validity.
On Android phones, the first time a customer opens the ticket screen with NFC on, a pop-up advises them to turn it off. The user can turn off NFC for Google Pay manually in the settings.
You will require internet connection to use the app, as the app needs to communicate with our server to keep itself up to date when you're out and about.
Opening the app, accessing the ticket catalogue, and accessing account pages will all generate a connection attempt. If the app cannot establish connection to our servers, it will then lock until it can connect.
Please note the app is not designed to work with Wi-Fi only devices such as tablets and iPods.
If you are still experiencing difficulties with the app please contact mTickets Customer Service on SSC-CustomerFeedback@firstbus.co.uk (So we can fully answer your enquiry please give us as much information as possible about the ticket type, device and operating system you are using) or 00443300 947 577. Normal opening hours: 7am – 10pm, seven days a week. Please note this team can only deal with app related queries, for queries regarding journey planning and online purchase please contact our Customer Services teams, email@example.com or +353 (0)1 8447118.
You will need an active and valid ticket to travel on the bus. If the mTicket is no longer valid, you will need to activate another, or pay to travel by cash/contactless payment and buy a ticket from the driver.
If an inspector asks to check your ticket, please show them the active ticket in your wallet as you would do the driver. For those who boarded using a single ticket which has since expired, the inspector will still be able to see this under the 'expired' tab in your wallet.
The mTicket system only allows one ticket of any type to be active at a time on a single device. If you are travelling with friends or family, they will need to purchase mTickets on their own device from their own account or use cash, or a contactless payment to buy a ticket from the driver.
We currently do not offer child tickets or our mTickets app therefore child tickets will need to be purchased from the driver using cash or contactless payment.
You will generally have 90 days to activate and use a ticket, although some multi journey tickets will be available to use for a year. If your ticket has an expiry date, this will be stated in the ticket's details on the app.
The mTickets app supports versions above and including iOS 8 and Android 4. Unfortunately, the Windows operating system is not supported.
The mTickets app is only designed to work with one device per account. However, should customers purchase a new handset, or lose or damage their current device, they will be able to transfer their tickets over.
To do this:
If the button is not visible, please ensure you have a data connection and refresh the app (on an iPhone tap the screen three times, or on Android select Refresh from the menu button).
Customers are able to complete the above process twice a month but further requests are subject to approval by a member of our mTickets team. Please don’t attempt to share your ticket with anyone else.
Missing tickets are generally caused by your mTicket account becoming logged out, or a prolonged loss of internet connection. To restore your tickets, please make sure you have a good network connection and refresh your tickets (on an Android select 'reset' from the menu key, on an iPhone tap the screen 3 times). Your tickets should be restored to your account in a few seconds.
