Could Have Saved A Fortune!
I’ve been commuting into London for the past 11 or so years and have had an annual train season ticket for about 8 of these. The annual ticket gives you a Gold Network Railcard for which you can get discounts on not only your train tickets, but for up to four people as well, as long as they’re travelling with you.
I found out last week that in the last 3 or 4 years, I could have been getting a discount on my Oyster card travel as well! I could have saved a fortune in travel around London. The discount only applies to off-peak travel but that is when I do most of my tube and bus travel anyway, pretty much every journey I’ve made could have been 33% cheaper!
So having registered my Oyster card last week I applied for my discount at St Pancras station this morning by showing that I do have a Network Gold card and then they applied the discount to my Oyster card. All pretty straightforward really.
Now, if only I could get back the money I should have saved over the last few years…
