FAQ connected to this ticket type

  1. 1. When are Off-Peak parking tickets valid? products-faq-angle-arrow.svg products-faq-angle-arrow-purple.svg

    Off-Peak car park tickets are generally available from 10am and all weekend. Please check the station information section of this website for more information about off peak car park prices.
  2. 2. How do you calculate the credit I will receive for travelling off-peak? products-faq-angle-arrow.svg products-faq-angle-arrow-purple.svg

    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. We will then credit eVouchers 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 for £80, the cost for each day’s travel is £10. If you travel off-peak one day, you will therefore receive an eVoucher of £1. If you travel at the weekend, you will generally receive an eVoucher for £2.50 or more.
