Flexi-Season tickets

A Flexi-Season ticket offers similar savings to those of a Season ticket holder – but with this option, you only pay for the days you travel. Flexi-Season tickets also work like a Season ticket, except you buy it as a bundle of 10 all-day travel tickets online, adding it onto a c2c Smartcard. Each time you use one of your Flexi-Season tickets, you travel like it’s a Season ticket, with unlimited journeys that day between the two stations you’ve selected.

The perfect solution for part-time commuting

Flexi-Season tickets are ideal for part-time commuters, semi-frequent travellers, shift workers, or anyone who would like more flexibility around when they travel.

FAQ connected to this ticket type

  1. 1. How many tickets do I have left and when do they expire?

    If you would like to know how many tickets are left on your Flexi-Season ticket, just log into your c2c-online account. Details of your Flexi-Season can be found by clicking the ‘Flexi-Season’ tab on the top menu bar. Each Flexi-Season bundle of 10 tickets is valid for 26 weeks from purchase; any remaining tickets that you haven’t used within this time will expire. However, if you purchase another Flexi-Season between the same two stations we will extend the validity of any unused tickets by another 26 weeks.  

  2. 2. What happens if I don't/can't tap in or out?

    It’s really important that you tap in and out when you are travelling with a c2c Smartcard. If you don’t tap in at the start of your journey, your Flexi-Season won’t be activated and you won’t have a valid ticket, which could result in a penalty fare.Plus, if you don’t tap out there’s a chance that the wrong product will be used. Also, you’ll need to tap in and out to be eligible for any credit for travelling off-peak and to receive any Automatic Delay Repay payments that you may be due.

  3. 3. How does the credit for travelling off-peak work?

    If on one of the days that you use a Flexi-Season ticket you only travel off-peak, we will credit the c2c online account linked to your Smartcard with an eVoucher worth 10% of the cost of that day’s travel. If you use your Flexi-Season ticket on Saturday, Sunday or a Bank Holiday, your online account will be credited with the difference in price between the cost of that day’s Flexi-Season ticket travel and that of a Weekend Off-Peak Day Return. An eVoucher will be credited to your account approximately 10 days after the date of your journey. Please note: you must always tap in and tap out to receive this reward.

    As an example, if you bought a Flexi-Season for £150, the cost for each day’s travel is £15. If you travel off-peak one day you will therefore receive an eVoucher worth £1.50. If you travel at the weekend, you will generally receive an eVoucher of around £4.88.
