Can I receive help towards the cost of travel?

In some instances we may be able to contribute towards the cost of travel to your nearest Merlin Entertainments attraction. We are unable to contribute to overseas travel.

Contributions towards travel are not guaranteed and are completely at our discretion. For residents outside of the UK full bank details are required should a contribution be required. Contributions are based on your nearest Merlin attraction.
