We know planning a trip can be overwhelming – there are just so many things to think about! But one of the most important things to consider is what travel zone you’ll be in.
What is a Travel Zone?
A travel zone is a defined area that is used to calculate the fare for a journey. Travel zones are used by transport operators to determine the price of a ticket.
Types of Travel Zones
• National travel zones
• International travel zones
• City travel zones
• suburban travel zones
How are travel zones determined?
Factors that determine travel zones
• The distance of the journey
• The mode of transport
• The type of ticket
• The time of day
Why are travel zones important?
Travel zones are important because they help to ensure that you pay the correct fare for your journey. If you’re unsure of which travel zone you need, you may end up paying more than you need to.
How do I find out which travel zone I need?
The easiest way to find out which travel zone you need is to use a journey planner. Journey planners are available from a variety of sources, including transport operators and travel websites.
When using a journey planner, you’ll need to enter your starting point, destination, date and time of journey, and type of transport you’d be using.
Journey planners will then calculate the best route for your journey and tell you which travel zone you need.
You can also use a map to find out which travel zone you need. Maps are available from transport operators and travel websites.
We hope that this has been helpful in explaining what travel zones are and why they’re important to consider when planning your trip!
