Independent rail ticket retailer to shake up travel market

The UK’s first independent season tickets retailer for rail travel has been launched. Until now rail season tickets have only been available from rail stations or train company websites. “A staggering two million people commute by train or tube every day and more than 45 percent of all rail journeys are made by season ticket holders,” said Matt Wigginton, managing director at Ticketmunky. “Until now this experience has been thoroughly un-rewarding. Commuters have been faced with rising prices and limited choice, and this is where Ticketmunky comes in.” Ticketmunky.com, deemed ‘the commuter revolution’, by its creators, will also be offering what it believes is the UK’s ‘most generous reward scheme’. Commuters purchasing their rail season ticket through the site will be able to claim five percent back in holiday vouchers and spend them with over 200 tour operators and travel companies.
