If your monthly Travelcard runs out soon you should consider getting an annual Travelcard. Getting one before the year is out means you can take advantage of significant savings on your commute — paying this year's price for the whole of 2015.
Can't afford to stump up for the cost in one go? Have a look at CommuterClub — it provides a simple loan, repaid over 11 months — meaning if you take one out now, next December will be payment-free. The scheme allows you all the flexibility of buying monthly tickets, while enjoying the savings and freedom of the annual ticket. Should your circumstances change, you can cancel at any time with no penalties.
What's more, as of 2 January the free Gold Card that comes with your new, pre-loaded Oystercard gives you to 30% off rail fares not only in the South-East area but a chunk of the Midlands — Birmingham, Worcester and Stafford — and out west to Salisbury, Exeter and Weymouth too. Gold Card discounts will also be available on the Heathrow, Gatwick and Stansted Express services as well as on Hovercraft to the Isle of Wight.
