1 Season ticket stealth tax? on Mon Jun 25 2018, 12:07

Renewing 10 season tickets on the direct debit plan, all from one account.
There is a £15 admin charge for the direct debit. But you pay per seat!
That's £150 admin charge for one single direct debit!

Surely, they should be saying direct debit tickets are £15 extra for the season, or there is a £15 reduction if you pay up front, or they should be classing it as charging interest for spreading the cost?

Is it just me, or does it seem like a bit of a swizz?

Norpig mentioned this last week. Seems a bit unfair to me.
I'm lucky in that,having reached 65,my season ticket in the WSU comes to a total of £294,so I'm feeling pretty happy.

I see it as a £15 charge for having the benefit of paying monthly.

£150 for one DD is excessive. They should be putting their heads together to sort something out.

Yeah, I think so too. However, I feel this should simply be the stated price. I think it's a bit shady to say "the price is X and you can spread the cost interest free - *but it's £15 more."

Don't say it's an admin charge when it is not.

You pay fees everywhere you go now. Ordered some wrestling tickets for Manchester in November and I've paid booking fees on all 8 tickets, even though they were booked at the same time!

It does seem a bit unfair to bring it in this season but i suspect they see it as an easy way to make a few more quid as a lot of fans will use the Direct Debit scheme. I didn't know about this till i got my renewal letter, it should have been better advertised as it does seem a bit sneaky. I've used the DD option for years now so how can there suddenly be extra charges?

Would it not make sense to get a 0% credit card and purchase the ST in full then pay it off monthly?

 If i'd known about it beforehand then yes probably. It may have been said somewhere but i didn't see it and i suspect many others haven't either.

I'd definitely question why they have put on 10 separate admin fees to pay 1 direct debit.

They put 2 x £15 on for my 2 seats, it's an easy way to raise another 150K if 10,000 season tickets are sold, still think it's very cheeky. Most people can't afford to buy one upfront which they will know. King Ken has gone down in my estimations after this.

Mr Pig, it's in the *asterisk after the pricing table, right at the end of all the info. A bit like small print.

So if you only read the main bit about pricing and allow your tickets to auto renew, it's easy to assume that you are simply signing up to the same deal as last year...
At £15 it's like paying for an extra match that doesn't exist.
