5.14.1 Pricing Season Tickets

Example 1

A passenger wishes to purchase a weekly season ticket for SOUTHPORT [NLC 2262] - PRESTON LANCS [NLC 2753] Route Any Permitted starting on 21/03/12. The price is the base rate of 64.90.

Example 2

A passenger requests a monthly season ticket for MANCHESTER STNS [NLC 0438] - WATFORD JUNCTION [NLC 1402] Route Not Via London with a start date of 12/04/12. No weekly season exists, indicating that it is a market-based price. The base rate for this flow is 268.60. The monthly season is therefore 268.60 x 3.84 = 1031.42, rounded up to 1031.50.

Example 3

A passenger asks for an odd-period season ticket valid from 01/01/12 to 08/07/12 for DERBY [NLC 1823] - LONDON TERMINALS [NLC 1072] Route Any Permitted. The price of the weekly season, 263.50, should not be used as this is a market-based price. The base rate is actually 204.50.

This odd-period season lasts 6 months 8 days. The overall price is obtained by aggregating the following components:

Price of season ticket for 6 months: 204.50 x 3.84 x 6 = 4711.68
Price of odd-period for 8 days: 204.50 x 1.03 = 210.64 (See Section 5.4.5 for a table of factors to be used.)

Overall price: 4711.68 + 210.64 = 4922.32, rounded up to 4922.40.

Example 4

A passenger requires a RUGBY [NLC 1087] - NORTHAMPTON [NLC 1069] Route Any Permitted season ticket for a period of 10 months 22 days starting on 24/04/12. The price of the weekly season is the base rate for this flow, at 34.20. The overall price of the season ticket is calculated as follows:

Price of season ticket for 10 months: 34.20 x 3.84 x 10 = 1313.28
Price of odd-period for 22 days: 34.20 x 2.82 = 96.44 (See Section 5.4.4 for a table of factors to be used.)

Overall price: 1313.28 + 96.44 = 1409.72, rounded up to 1409.80

Price of annual season: 34.20 x 40 = 1368.00

The price of the odd-period season is higher than the annual season ticket. The passenger is therefore issued with an annual season ticket. This ticket will be on Gold Card stock if bought from a station within the Network Railcard area.
