For Single + Return Tickets – The ticket cost is the exact same as the journey. For return tickets, it’s half the price of the entire ticket cost.
Seasonal Tickets – C2C will pay the journey cost and to figure this out, they’ll device the ticket by working days. Once that number is found, it’s divided by two.
Week Tickets – C2C will divide the ticket cost by 5 days. This will get you the daily rate of travel and once that’s found, you will then have that divided by two. If you want a simplistic explanation, just divide the ticket cost by 10.
Monthly Tickets – It works the same as weekly tickets but instead of 5 working days, it’s 20 working days instead. Instead of diving the total cost of the ticket by 10, it’ll divide the total ticket cost by 40.
Yearly/Annual Tickets – This involves a lot more math because the entire ticket cost is divided up by 232 working days. It works essentially the same as monthly tickets and weekly tickets but the total divide is 464 from your initial ticket cost.
Get with c2c if you have a seasonal ticket that varies in length and they’ll work out how many working days are on the ticket. There are 5 working days in a week. That’s how the journey cost is calculated.
