Swap to Save Challenge

With inflation soaring and energy bills at a record high, money is increasingly tight.

One of the best ways to save cash is to swap car journeys for active travel alternatives.  

Around a quarter of all car journeys are under two miles, and more than half are under five miles. These are the easiest journeys to swap for a walk, wheel or cycle.

As BetterPoints user Ollie told us, by making the switch you will be:

  • Saving money 👛
  • Fitter 💪🏽
  • Less stressed 🤗
  • Plus, you'll be doing your bit for local air quality 💚.

Swap to Save

Like Ollie, we want to help you to experience the financial and health benefits of active travel.

Which is why from 1 October we're offering Get Active in Ebbsfleet participants an extra 15 BetterPoints per active journey of at least 1 mile. You can earn this reward up to 2 times a day for the next 6 weeks.

Plus, you'll earn 1 BetterTicket into our prize draw. At the end of the Swap to Save challenge, we'll be giving away:

  • 1 x £100 supermarket voucher
  • 1 x £50 supermarket voucher
  • 2 x £25 supermarket voucher

DON'T FORGET: the BetterPoints you earn can be traded in for a whole host of money-off vouchers. Simply tap the 'Redeem' button on the bottom navigation bar of your app to see what's available.

Swap to Support

For every extra BetterPoint earned, we will match-fund with a donation to Hive Hope, a local charity providing food to those in crisis in Northfleet and the surrounding area.

So not only will you be saving by swapping out car journeys, those in need will be benefiting as well. It's a win-win!

DON'T FORGET: if you wish to donate the BetterPoints you earn to Hive Hope or another local charity, you can do so. Simply tap the 'Donate' button on the bottom navigation bar of your app.
