Our local station is southern - it's hard to determine whether someone at the desk or a train arriving is the more frequent occurrence. I don't suppose we really need a scholar's permit as most of the time one is entitled to a refund for non-performance.

Thanks for the scholar's pass information doodles, that's brilliant. My son is travelling from Orpington to Tunbridge Wells, which is already pretty pricey and would be eye watering at full adult rates. Even if we can't get a scholar's pass from Orpington, presumably he could have two tickets, one to Sevenoaks and one from it. Or ideally there will be a more equitable system of child train fares everywhere by the time he turns 16...

Sorrel have you enquired whether there is a scholars' pass for under 16's? I have a niggle in the back of my head that there might be, always worth asking the question, they can always say "No".

Hello, any more news on the scholars pass for 16+ from anyone? I phoned South Eastern customer services and they'd not heard of it. I won't be able to get to 7'oaks or T'wells station myself for a while to ask about it.

Its on my 'To do list' mystery and I will post if I have any further info. As I have bought train passes until half term I will be investigating before the end of Oct. Interestingly my DH asked at the kiosk in the station at 7oaks about the possibility of scholars" passes a couple of years ago and got nowhere.
