Are these still inter-available for use on the East Grinstead and/or Uckfield lines?
If it is the destination will include 'AAA <somewhere else>', where 'AAA' means also available at.Sorry don't know the answer to the question, but it sounds interesting!
Does this mean that my Hassocks - London Terminals Gold Card could also be used as far as East Grinstead and Uckfield? Could be very useful if I need to get to my sister in laws!
The entitlement wouldn't be automatic, so that doesn't imply they don't exist on its own. Where there is an AAA option, it usually costs very slightly more. I had a quick check using National Rail's season ticket planner but nothing showed up for Uckfield or Hassocks.Hehe - yes, you're right I think I would have noticed. My ticket simply states "Between Hassocks * & London Terminals". (Not sure what the * means!).#
So I guess the answer to the OP's question is 'no'.
Are you sure? Just to clarify, this particular easement was previously seen on page 9 of Section M of NFM98 (South) which dealt with ticket easements in the Southern area. As 'swt_passenger' points out, I think that it will need someone with access to the current version of the 'manual' to be able to check and confirm for definite.So I guess the answer to the OP's question is 'no'.
TBH, having done 10+ years on tickets this is the 1st time I have heard of AAA (other than the old Dog/Luggage charge) so i'm not sure Brighton (my) area has ever had these... I know Hassocks (as an example) used to have acceptance at Plumpton (same fare and shown as 'also valid to' (or similar) in the back of the NFM) but i've never seen it marked on a ticket.So I suspect that Southern have withdrawn them
Agreed. Current prices for 7-day Standard season tickets East Grinstead - London Terminals are:Where there is an AAA option, it usually costs very slightly more.
