    If you live in the South East and have an annual Travelcard, you also benefit from a Network Gold Card, a legacy from the old Network SouthEast.

    From 2 January 2015, the benefits are changing, in the name of simplification.

    Namely:

    The all-day £5 first class upgrade is being removed.
    The £2 child flat fare is being removed
    Partner offer of a £1 railcard is being removed
    Virgin and East Coast train services in the Network area no longer participating.

    New:

    A new -greatly expanded- Network Card area, which includes ALL of East Anglia and ALL of Chiltern Railways (so discounts possible to Norwich, Cromer (!) Kidderminster and Birmingham etc.)
    1/3 off First Class fares in the new Network area
    A new £10 Partner card and they can choose the card they want.

    I will miss the £5 rtn first class upgrade – in practice only South West Trains seemed to know how it worked.

    Sounds like whoever used to come up with BA’s enhancements has transferred to the railways.

    Remove any benefits that had value (eg Kids for £2) and replace it with the ability to travel to…er….Cromer.
