What’s not to love about the New Forest? There are wild boar, native ponies and acres of beautiful Hampshire countryside – and golden sandy beaches are but a stone’s throw away.
Well, now you can enjoy all of this AND get reward points for doing so! Whether you’re cycling to see the ponies, running to see (or running away from) the wild boar, walking around the countryside, catching the train from Brockenhurst to Bournemouth or simply sharing a car journey to work, you can now gather BetterPoints while you do it.
Record your daily train journeys to earn BetterPoints. This line runs Totton/Ashurst/Brockenhurst/Hinton Admiral/Bournemouth and a separate line between Brockenhurst - Lymington.
Share your car on a trip around the new forest area to earn BetterPoints. Start a car share activity and passengers just scan the QR code on your phone.
