A new type of ticket is launched today for regular train users on the same journey, but not travelling frequently enough to benefit from a season ticket, such as part-time workers and  home-workers who need flexibility when travelling to and from work.

Those with a South Western Railway Touch Smart card can buy a 10-ticket bundle called Carnet. The tickets, available at a 5% discount, are for use between the same origin and destination station for unlimited travel between the stations all day. Each ticket is valid for one day up to two months from the date of purchase, giving the customer flexibility to ‘choose when to use’.

Auto renewal monthly season tickets allow customers to buy 11 monthly season tickets in succession and get the 12th free, when they pay by direct debit and set up auto renewal on their touch smart card.

To purchase a 10-ticket Carnet for the Touch Smart card online go to www.southwesternrailway.com/train-tickets/smart-ticketing/carnet.
