One way in which I and other Councillors have tried to save money is by utilising Arriva Trains Wales Club 55 discount travel. At certain times of the year ATW will offer return journeys anywhere in Wales for over 55’s for £18 return. As so often happens members of the Executive Board are expected to travel to Cardiff on a regular basis and booking a return fare throught WCBC Corporate booking is about £70 whilst ATW is £18 a saving of £52 on every journey. There are a few anomalies like you can’t arrive in Cardiff before 0930 hrs but to get round that you buy a single from Newport to Cardiff for £4!
There are advantages of being over 55 and as Hugh has pointed out even more when you’re 60.
