If you’re thinking of what you can do over half-term with your little ‘uns that won’t break the bank, a Kids Pass could be really useful. Plus, it’s pretty good for cinema tickets even if you don’t have children!
At full price it’s pretty costly, but there are a few promos which make it a better option. Plus at the bottom of this page is a competition with the chance of winning a year long membership.

What does Kids Pass do?
It’s essentially a membership which gives you discounts on the places and things kids like to do.
- Up to 57% off at “family days out” such as theme parks, bowling and play centres
- Up to 40% off at cinemas, seven days a week
- Kids eat free or for £1 at hundreds of restaurants
- Savings on places like Butlins and Haven
You only need one card per family, rather than per child.
Is Kids Pass any good?
The discounts generally look pretty decent, especially the restaurants and cinema deals.
Some of the restaurant chains involved are Giraffe, Garfunkels, Barburrito, Handmade Burger Co, and Bella Italia each offering free food for kids or £1 meals. There’s also BOGOG at Pizza Hut (delivery) and second pizza for £1 at Papa Johns. There are hundreds of independent ones too. You can see those involved without getting a membership.
The cinema discounts are available at most of the major chains and various independent places. You get up to 40% off tickets for kids and adults, making it a good option even if you don’t have kids. A quick look at a few different chains and it generally works out as £8 per adult ticket.
You’ll need to buy your tickets through the website or app – you can’t just show your pass at the box office.
Do make sure though that it’s not cheaper to buy your tickets with a different deal. For example, my local Vue in York now charges £4.99 for all showings all the time, but would cost more than £8 via Kids Pass.
The theme park and other family activities look good, though as with most entertainment it’s worth shopping around for other offers. It does look like it includes all the major theme parks and places like Madame Tussards and London Dungeon.
You can also save up to 50% at places like Eurocamp, Haven and Butlins.
Kids Pass offers
At full-price – £75 a year – it’s possibly a bit pricey. However, there are ways to save which make it a must-try.
30-day trial for £1, then £29.99 for a year or £3.99 a month
For £1 I’m confident you’ll save some money with the card. Sadly my exclusive 90-day offer has ended and most trials have been cut to 30 days.
After the 30-days it will auto-renew at a cut-price £29.99 (normally £39.99) for a further 12 months. This should be the lowest price out there. Make sure you remember to cancel if you don’t want to keep it.
Or there’s a second option where you pay £3.99 a month after the trial. It’s more expensive if you stay for a year, but you have the option to cancel when you’re not using it.
