For ease of travel (and not fare dodging) is this ever an issue? I have no problem paying the 25% but it's frustrating that priv tickets can't be bought online and only "technically" from offices. An example of where this is a (small) annoyance: Free staff travel with TOC and then transferring onto the next available train that may or may not be the same TOC. If it happens to be a different TOC then technically I have to exit the barrier, buy a priv ticket and then return as opposed to just boarding whatever comes next and purchasing on-board. Is this somewhat acceptable? How would a revenue protection officer see this?
