Children are classed as aged between 4 and 15 years inclusive. Children under the age of 16 years old must be accompanied by an Adult (over 18 years old). 16 or 17 year olds may travel unaccompanied, but may be required to provide proof of age.

Infants are classed as aged between 0 and 3 years inclusive and must be accompanied by a passenger who must be 18 or over and may be asked to produce proof of age. Infants travel free of charge as the fare for an adult includes any infant passenger under 4 years of age accompanying that passenger. However, infants must be booked to travel as they are included in the overall passenger count.
