Rail Flexi Season Tickets Introduced

Henley Trains share this note from Great Western Railway which may be of interest to rail commuters with revised flexible working arrangements.

“Flexi Seasons have gone on sale today for travel from next Monday, 28 June.

Announced by the Government as part of the Williams Shapps review, the Flexi Season ticket offers savings for commuters travelling during peak times on routes that currently have season ticket availability.

We have a dedicated page on our website here where customers can check prices, order smart cards and also read about how to use the new product. It is important when checking prices that customers select dates from the 28th June.

Traditional season tickets will remain the most cost-effective option for those travelling at peak times four days a week or more, but the Flexi season, which offers eight days travel in any 28, provides a minimum of 20% saving against a monthly season ticket for those travelling twice a week at peak times.
As well as the Flexi Season, the DfT have also announced that for the rest of this year (until 31 December 2021) train companies will also offer a “book with confidence” guarantee allowing customers to rebook journeys, or receive rail vouchers, without an administration fee (usually £10.00) should their plans change.
We have written to our season ticket holders, and have issued traditional and social media, to let people know about the changes as they start to plan for a return to work.”
