Do you get a monthly, weekly or annual ticket to work. For the last 5 years Ive been paying week to week and i didnt think Id say much money that way compared to stumping up for an annual gold card on national rail. When doing my sums earlier today and nearly had a heart attach and turns out ive been paying nearly £600 extra a year paying a weekly instead of an annual!!! So angry that Ive been so stupid really!

Ever happened to you?? Thats nearly £3000 I could have had in my pocket rather than TFLs

how much is a annual compared to weekly?

if you have that sort of money to give to National Fail, go for it :)

well i paid £2016 for 12 months

compared to a weekly £54.50 for 12 months = £2834

saving = £818

even more annoyed with myself if i got my ticket yesterday could have saved another £112 :(

Why doesnt everyone get annuals or do they?

I used to pay yearly on the train between an outer Sheffield station and Leeds.

My work give you a cheque the full amount then take it from your wages over 10 months (interest free).

That was until I realised that for £1916 (It's now £2028) I could run and maintain a car for the same money, and shave 2 hours off the journey time (1.5-2 hours each way, now 45 mins).

i was paying £17 for a weekly bus pass. weekly seemed the best option as i wouldnt use it while on weeks off or when one ran out i may not need a new one for a day or two.

but about 7 months ago i decided to start cycling to work & loved it! saving money, losing weight & am usually quicker than the buses!
i'm just gutted because i've not been able to cycle due to the snow for the last 6 weeks! but it's back in the saddle tomorrow morning! :)
this is saving me atleast £600 a year!

thats what i thought, i only wanted a weekly because i didnt want to pay while i was on holiday or when i didnt need to travel into london, thinking itd be the cheaper option...oh how wrong i was!!

I just cannot believe all these years ive been paying £600 ontop of what i needed to for no reason for a crap service.

I am gutted lol
