FAQs connected to Annual train tickets

  1. 1. I no longer need my Weekly or Monthly Season ticket; will I receive a refund? products-faq-angle-arrow.svg products-faq-angle-arrow-purple.svg

    If you stop travelling and no longer need your Season Ticket, you can hand it to the ticket office where you bought it. Any refund is calculated from the date the Season Ticket was handed in and will be the difference between the price you paid and the cost of a ticket or tickets for the period for which you have actually used the ticket. An administration charge (see admin charges below) will also be deducted from the refund amount. There must be at least seven days remaining on a Monthly Season Ticket to obtain a refund. If you have any queries please contact our Customer Relations Team. For more information about ticketing please see here  
  2. 2. I’m moving house or changing jobs and will be travelling from a different station, can I change my Season Ticket? products-faq-angle-arrow.svg products-faq-angle-arrow-purple.svg

    If you move house or change your place of work, you may apply to exchange any Season ticket - as long as there is a month or more remaining - for one with the same expiry date for your new journey. This is called a changeover. You may apply for a changeover at any rail ticket office (preferably one relevant to the new journey), a few days in advance of the date of the change. Any additional charge or refund will be based on the ticket prices at the time the original Season ticket was bought, pro rata to the periods before and after the changeover. No administration charge is made. Any ticket that has already been exchanged in this way may be accepted for further exchanges, if necessary.
  3. 3. Can I pay by company cheque? products-faq-angle-arrow.svg products-faq-angle-arrow-purple.svg
