    Train car park - difficult to get season ticket

    Train car park - difficult to get season ticket 10th Sep 17 at 12:55 PM
    Recently started commuting again.
    Easiest way to get a parking ticket is via RingGo but they only offer daily prices at £8.50.
    Managed to get to the ticket office this w/end and a monthly is £115.00. That's 13-14 days plus you get weekends.

    Seems a bit of a scam as it's difficult to find the season ticket price, it's not available apart from at the ticket office (so the man said) which is rarely open.

    I found the price by looking at the ticket on another car so found it was worth the trip to get it. There are very few cars with tickets though so I think most are paying the daily price unless I've missed something.
    The train ticket is easy to get online.

    If I had £115 to spend and bought daily tickets at £8.50 a day that would buy me 13 daily tickets (technically 13.5, but I'm not sure they'd sell a half ticket!).

    The OP is pointing out how much better value it is to buy a monthly season!

    Assuming its a railway company operated car park it should be possible to purchase from any open ticket office just as if its any other rail ticket.
