Flexible season tickets on sale, saving hundreds of pounds for rail passengers

26 Jun 2021

 

New national flexible rail tickets, matching modern working habits and saving passengers hundreds of pounds, will be available to commuters across England from next week.

 

The paperless tickets will allow travel on any 8 days in a 28-day period, with passengers able to tap smartcards or scan mobiles at the station with no need to select the days of travel in advance.

 

The change has the potential to save commuters hundreds of pounds, providing greater choice and flexibility.

 

Commuters can visit an updated online ‘season ticket calculator’, at https://www.nationalrail.co.uk/times_fares/Season-Calculator.aspx,

 which will point people to the best tickets for them based on their journey, working pattern and individual needs, ensuring they get the deal that suits them.

 

To encourage more passengers to travel by rail, for the rest of this year (until 31 December 2021), train companies will also offer a book with confidence guarantee, allowing people to rebook journeys or receive rail vouchers without an admin fee if their plans change.
