It’s time to take the Thames

Commuter with the Shard in the background

A commute that’s as fast and convenient as it is comfortable

It’s time to take to the Thames and try a river commute with 20% off weekly and monthly season tickets until 08 March, starting from £22.24 per week!

Research from the University of Greenwich shows that those who travel to and from work by boat are happiest. Here is what our commuters have to say:


  • "Being able to enjoy the London skyline and really friendly staff on board is just what you need to start the day on the right foot." Deirdre
  • "It’s 25- minute longer commute to work but I get to organise my thoughts, get ready for work. And by the time I get to work I’m really relaxed" Bennon
  • "It’s about convenience. Thames Clippers take about the same to get to Blackfriars and there’s a coffee shop on board. I can also work on emails without having to worry about being with no service. It’s no brainer, really!" Peter

Take the happiness up a notch and try a stress-free commute with a comfy seat in a cosy cabin, onboard bar and speedy 4G. Claim your 20% off before the offer ends on 08 March.
