If you have chosen to donate the credit to one of LNER’s nominated charities, this will be transferred to the charity the month after your date of travel
  7. For tickets that are refundable: if you have requested earned credit to be added to your own account, the credit will appear in your account within 28 days of the date of travel if the ticket is not refunded. If you have chosen to donate the credit to one of LNER’s nominated charities, this will be transferred to the charity the month after your date of travel if your ticket is not refunded.
  8. Where a ticket is refunded no credit earned from the original purchase will be added to your LNER account or passed to a charity.

  • The Season Ticket is a full price adult ticket (excludes Child and Privilege tickets) 

2. In order to collect LNER PERKS earned credit on a journey you must either be a member of LNER PERKS at the point of purchase or join the scheme within 48 hours of purchase

3. Earned credit is awarded on a monthly basis If a season ticket is refunded, no credit will be awarded for season ticket travel during the month it was refunded.

4. Season Ticket holders are awarded earned credit for purchases of qualifying season tickets (as outlined above). Members are not permitted to earn credit from other people’s season ticket purchases.

5. For monthly and annual Season Tickets, earned credit will be apportioned on a monthly basis (on or around the 1st of each month) until all the credit earned on your purchase of the season ticket have been credited.

6. Earned credit awarded will be based on the number of days that the ticket was valid during that month using the following calculation:

((validity in previous month in days / total ticket period in days) x total cost of the Season Ticket) x 2

By way of illustration, if a Season Ticket cost £500 and the ticket was valid for a total ticket period of 3 months and 10 days (102 days in total) and 8 days of that period occurred during the previous month (e.g. 24 to 31 inclusive), the calculation will be:
((8 / 102) x 500) x 2 = £0.78 earned credit awarded that month.

7. For weekly Season Tickets, the earned credit will be awarded within 28 days after the weekly travel period has passed. 

8. If a Season Ticket is refunded part way through, no earned credit will be awarded for season ticket travel during the week or month it was refunded.
