Having to swallow it all in one go...
It's that time of year when I need to buy my annual zones 1 & 2 Travel Card. A massive £772.
- I know in the back of my mind that it saves me money over weekly or monthly tickets in the long run (though I've never actually sat down to do the maths).
- I know it gives me unlimited travel on tubes and buses 24/7 so it's a good thing
- I know it is only up just £16 from last year: an inflation friendly 2% so I shouldn't really complain.
But, it's just such a lot of money to stump up all in one go.
Thank God then for the interest free travel loan that my company provides (hurray!). Now if I could only find the wretched form to make it all happen. Pah!
