How the scheme works

  • Payments are taken on the 1st or 15th of each month
  • Please allow at least 2 weeks to register before the date of your first Direct Debit payment
  • For payments on the 1st, tickets are dispatched and commence on the 12th of the month
  • Payments made on the 15th are dispatched and commence on the 27th of each month
  • Please note the nearest Direct Debit date will be the default option to choose

Step 2: receive your ticket in the post each month
