5.14.3 Pricing Customised Travelcard Seasons

The price of a customised Travelcard season is calculated using this formula:

Code:
price of customised Travelcard season =
     price of outboundary Travelcard season from the origin to LONDON ZONES 1-6
   + price of outboundary Travelcard season from the destination to LONDON ZONES 1-6
   - price of (inboundary) Zones 1-6 Travelcard season
Example

A passenger residing in Milton Keynes and works at Gatwick Airport requests a customised annual Travelcard between MILTON KEYNES C [NLC 1378] and GATWICK AIRPORT [NLC 5416], including unlimited travel within Zones 1-6 starting on 03/05/12 and allowing him to catch services by any Train Company. The price of the customised Travelcard is calculated as follows:

MILTON KEYNES C - LONDON ZONES 1-6 Route Any Permitted annual Travelcard: 5280.00
GATWICK AIRPORT - LONDON ZONES 1-6 Route Any Permitted annual Travelcard: 3776.00
(Inboundary) Zones 1-6 annual Travelcard: 2136.00

Price of customised annual Travelcard: 5288.00 + 3776.00 - 2136.00 = 6928.00

Because a customised Travelcard season ticket must be routed London Zones 1-6 [Route Code 00923] or LONDON ZN1-6 +HS [Route Code 00922] as appropriate, it is unclear the implications of this requirement on a ticket which is composed of outboundary Travelcard seasons that already have a routing other than Any Permitted. For example, there would not be sufficient room on the ticket itself if in the above case, the GATWICK AIRPORT - LONDON ZONES 1-6 Route FCC Only price were used.

It is important to remember that 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.
