Unaccompanied Minors on Buses. Conditions of travel for unaccompanied Minors on InterCity and Newmans Coach Lines buses.

Unaccompanied Minors

A minor is deemed by InterCity Group to be someone aged between 7 and 13 years of age. A minor is deemed to be unaccompanied if they are not accompanied by a person over the age of 18 years. No child less than 7 years old may travel alone.

InterCity Group will carry unaccompanied minors on InterCity and Newmans Coach Lines services provided that an unaccompanied minor form has been completed fully, has been signed by at least one legal guardian, a copy held by InterCity Group and a copy held by the unaccompanied minor. It is important all legal guardians read and understand the unaccompanied minor form before signing it.

A booking for an unaccompanied minor cannot be confirmed until an unaccompanied minor form has been fully completed. Ticketing a booking without an unaccompanied minor form being completed may result in cancellation of the reservation or a refusal of carriage.

An unaccompanied minor must carry a copy of the fully completed unaccompanied minor form when travelling on any InterCity or Newmans service. The driver will request to see the unaccompanied minor form before accepting the minor for travel.

Where possible InterCity and Newmans drivers will seat unaccompanied minors in rows 2-5. This is not guaranteed and is a stated intention only.

InterCity Group reserves the right to refuse carriage should the correct forms not be completed and held prior to travel.
