Train fares are set to rise by up to 11% at the beginning of next year, which is well above the inflation rate. This has been met with uproar by Unions and every day travellers alike as the government’s austerity measures are starting to kick in.

The increase in ticket prices is expected across the board with some annual tickets rising by nearly £1000. London commuters already spend 11% of their salary on commuting and with this round of price rises an even bigger portion of their salary will be going towards transportation. According to a Sky news report, train fares are rising three times faster than salaries. Privatisation of the rail industry in the UK has led to train fares becoming some of the highest in Europe, according to some campaigners.

At Pockit, we realise the burden on our customers from these price increases and we always try to help. That is why we have done a partnership with redspottedhanky.com, where our cardholders get 2% cashback on their train ticket purchases. In addition, redspottedhanky.com does not charge any booking or credit card fees when you buy your train tickets through them. They are the only company who work in this way and that adds further savings for Pockit Pay Monthly cardholders.

The website already provides the cheapest fares available online. For example, if you book in advance you can book tickets from Manchester to London starting from £11.50 and Birmingham to London from £6. Pockit Pay Monthly cardholders earn an extra 2% cashback on top of these extremely competitive prices.
