5.11 London Travelcards: Custom Seasons

If neither the origin nor the destination of a passenger's journey is inside Zones 1-6, a customised Travelcard season ticket can be produced for this journey to include a Travelcard season for use within Zones 1-6, provided that both the origin and the destination have fares to LONDON ZONES 1-6 [NLC 0035].

Customised Travelcard season tickets must include unlimited travel within at least Zones 1-6.

Special arrangements apply if a customised Travelcard season is required from an outboundary origin to a destination station within Zones 7-9. Please refer to Section 5.11.6 below for more details.

A customised Travelcard season with an origin (or destination) station being one of WATFORD JUNCTION [NLC 1402], BROXBOURNE [NLC 6812], BRENTWOOD [NLC 6872] or SHENFIELD [NLC 6888] should still allow unlimited travel within Zones 7-9, despite there not being enough room on the ticket itself to accommodate the relevant AAA annotations.

5.11.1 Time Restrictions

No time restrictions apply to customised Travelcard season tickets. The ticket is valid from 00.01 on the first day of validity until 04.29 on the day following the last day of validity.

5.11.2 Ticket Issuing

Some flows have customised Season ticket prices already preloaded into the fares database, for example, READING STATIONS [NLC 0403] – MILTON KEYNES [NLC 1378] Route London Zones 1-6.

If the price of a customised Travelcard season is calculated manually, make sure the ticket is routed London Zones 1-6 [Route Code 00923] or LONDON ZN1-6 +HS [Route Code 00922] as appropriate.

5.11.3 NRCoC Condition 19

A customised Travelcard season is considered a season ticket in the context of Condition 19(c). It is also a zonal ticket for the purpose of Condition 19(a).

5.11.4 Price of Customised Travelcard Season

The price of a customised Travelcard season ticket is calculated by adding together the LONDON ZONES 1-6 fare from the origin station and the LONDON ZONES 1-6 fare from the destination station, and then subtracting the price of the inboundary Zones 1-6 Travelcard fare for the same duration as the ticket required. For examples please see Section 5.14.3.

If the price for the customised Travelcard season already exists in the database, the listed price must be used instead of performing the aforementioned calculation. The availability of prices can be checked using Southern Railway's Season Ticket Calculator.

5.11.5 Gold Card Benefits

The holder of an annual customised Travelcard season enjoys all the benefits listed in Section 5.4.7.

5.11.6 Special Arrangements: Outboundary Origin and Destination Within Zones 7-9

A customised Travelcard season with an outboundary origin and a destination within Zones 7-9 can be priced by adding the relevant supplement as detailed below (correct as of 2nd January 2015) to the base rate of an outboundary Travelcard season from the same origin to LONDON ZONES 1-6 [NLC 0035]. Such a Travelcard offers the holder additional validity for travel within Zones 7-9 as detailed in Section 5.10.6.

        Destination           Supplement
---------------------------   ----------
CROXLEY UND [NLC 0554]           5.00
WATFORD MET UND [NLC 0748]       5.00
RICKMANSWRTH UND [NLC 0687]      5.00

AMERSHAM UND [NLC 0506]         24.80

Please enquire with your retailer what the add-on amount is if the origin is one of THEOBALDS GROVE [NLC 6949], WALTHAM CROSS [NLS 6823] or CHESHUNT [NLC 6814], which all joined the zonal area in January 2013, as publicly available information is inconsistent.
