How does it work? 

It’s simple. Let your friend, family member or anyone you think would be suitable know about our driver vacancies and get them to apply. 

When your friend/family member completes their Driver Application Pack, make sure they include your contact details (name, email and mobile/tel.) under the ‘Refer a Friend’ scheme section.

Your friend’s application will then be reviewed and hopefully they’ll join our Thames Travel team very soon after. 

If the person you're referring already holds a valid PCV licence, your one month free travel pass will be issued automatically after they complete three months of employment with Thames Travel. If you're referring someone who doesn't have a PCV licence, that's absolutely fine too! You will be automatically issued your one month free travel pass after they complete their training (which is provided by us), plus three months of employment.

What will my free travel pass include?

Your one month free travel pass will allow you to travel on any Thames Travel and local Oxford Bus Company services (excluding the airline) within the Cityzone and South Oxfordshire Zone areas. 

How can my friend apply?

All the details are available in our careers section.

Your friend will need to complete either an online application form or a printable PCV driver application pack, available on our website listed above. 

Who can I contact if I have any questions? 

You can contact our HR colleagues via or 01865 785400.
