How does a Flexi Season Ticket work?

A Flexi Season Ticket comes as a bundle of 8 Day Passes you must use within 28 days. Each Day Pass allows unlimited travel for 1 day between a given origin and destination station. The 8 days of travel don’t need to be specified in advance, giving you more flexibility to travel when you want and need. For example, with a Flexi Season you may choose to travel 1 day for the first week, 4 days in the second, and 3 in the third, enjoying more flexibility than you would with a normal Season Ticket.
