We hate to be the bearers of bad news, but as of January 2018, fares are due to go up by an eye-watering 3.6%. Joining the ultimate travel club, though, could just save you hefty amounts when it comes to commuting.
If your New Year's resolution is to spend less on travel, keep reading. The January price hike is the highest in five years, and equal to a whole two weeks of travel, which doesn't sound very purse-friendly in the month after Christmas.
Get on board with CommuterClub, though, and not only will you be able to keep today's prices for a whole year, you'll get a month's free travel as well as a coveted Gold Card, giving you offers and discounts on National Rail travel and loads of attractions.
CommuterClub works by giving you the great value price of an annual travelcard at today's current lower fare rates, but lets you pay for it in monthly instalments. You'll pay for 11 months, giving you the 12th completely free. Whoever said you can't get something for nothing clearly hadn't heard of these guys.
With flexible monthly payments, you'll have the flexibility of a monthly travelcard with the great value prices of an annual. While also avoiding the 3.6% rise, you could save an average of £300, which means a lot more cash for Christmas presents.
So what about this Gold Card? This is your magic ticket for 1/3 off National Rail fares and 2-for-1 entry at hundreds of UK and London attractions, including the Tower of London to St. Paul's Cathedral. You'll be saving money all through 2018.
For a New Year's resolution you can keep, join the club. If you spread the word and refer your friends, you'll bag yourself £20 for each one that joins CommuterClub on your recommendation.
