MARKET HARBOROUGH, England, (PRNewswire/WorldTourismNews.eu) --

- First Independent Retailer of Rail Season Tickets to Offer UK's 'Most Generous Reward Scheme'

Amidst the challenges facing commuters around the country, today sees the launch of the UK's first independent retailer of rail season tickets, offering a host of services to support beleaguered commuters.

Ticketmunky.com, deemed 'The Commuter Revolution', by its creators The Munky Business Group, will be offering what it believes is the UK's 'most generous reward scheme'.

Commuters purchasing their rail season ticket through the site will be able to claim 5% back in holiday vouchers and spend them with over 200 tour operators and travel companies.

Matt Wigginton, managing director at Ticketmunky explains, "A staggering two million people commute by train or tube every day and over 45% of all rail journeys are made by season ticket holders. Until now this experience has been thoroughly un-rewarding.

"Commuters have been faced with rising prices and limited choice, and this is where Ticketmunky comes in. Alongside the fantastic 5% reward scheme, Ticketmunky will also offer Season Ticket Finance for commuters who want to spread the cost over 10 monthly instalments, without tying up their credit card, something normally only available to employees of large companies.

"Over the next few months we will see a commuter revolution as we launch a number of additional services including a delay claims service, plus special offers for Ticketmunky customers to make their commute more rewarding.

"Meanwhile, until the end of January, commuters who spot 'Munky' out and about across the UK should upload a picture of themselves with him to our Facebook page, to be in with a chance of winning their commute free for a year."
