  3. 3. Why did c2c change its Flexi-Season ticket? products-faq-angle-arrow.svg products-faq-angle-arrow-purple.svg

    As part of the Government's recovery plan following the COVID-19 pandemic, a national Flexi Season ticket has been introduced for all rail customers. In order to achieve this, any existing c2c Flexi-Seasons have been discontinued, in favour of the new Flexi Season ticket.
  4. 4. What is the difference between the new national Flexi Season ticket and the original c2c Flexi-Season? products-faq-angle-arrow.svg products-faq-angle-arrow-purple.svg

    The main difference is that the new national Flexi Season ticket is an 8 day bundle to use up anytime within 28 days, whereas the old c2c Flexi-Season was a 10 day bundle to use anytime within six months. You can buy the new Flexi Season up to two weeks in advance, and it is valid on national commuter rail routes around the UK, instead of just between two c2c stations. See this quick guide to the key differences
  5. 5. Can I buy more than one Flexi Season ticket? products-faq-angle-arrow.svg products-faq-angle-arrow-purple.svg

    Yes. However, if you have a Flexi Season ticket on your smartcard, we recommend you wait until after you've used all 8 days of travel on your active Flexi Season ticket before buying a new one. If you need to buy another Flexi Season ticket before you've finished using your active ticket, please make sure the start date of your next Flexi Season ticket commences after the date you intend to use your last day of travel. This is to avoid starting your new ticket before you’ve used all 8 days of travel on your active ticket.
  6. 6. Are my existing c2c Flexi-Season tickets still valid and will they work? products-faq-angle-arrow.svg products-faq-angle-arrow-purple.svg

    If you have any c2c Flexi-Season tickets on your Smartcard they will still be valid to use for 6 months from when you bought your last bundle. If you haven’t been able to use your c2c Flexi-Season tickets because of government travel restrictions during the pandemic you can contact us for a refund. You’ll still be able to view your c2c Flexi-Season history in your account but you won’t be able to top up. You’ll need to make sure there are zero c2c Flexi-Season tickets left on any previous bundles before you can buy the new national Flexi Season when it comes in.
  7. 7. Can I top-up the national Flexi Season ticket? products-faq-angle-arrow.svg products-faq-angle-arrow-purple.svg

    There is no top-up function for the new Flexi Season ticket. If you are running low, simply buy another set of 8 passes via the c2c app or website. The validity of the new Flexi Season ticket is 28 days and any expired tickets will automatically be removed.  You’ll need to make sure there are zero c2c Flexi-Season tickets left on any previous bundles before you can buy the new national Flexi Season.
  8. 8. How does Flexi Season compare to other Season tickets? products-faq-angle-arrow.svg products-faq-angle-arrow-purple.svg
