What does 'initial payment' mean?

The initial payment is literally the first payment you make for your Season Ticket. This might include an ‘alignment charge’ if you are a corporate customer.

This will be a full month if you pay monthly, the quarter if you have chosen a quarterly ticket and the full year if you have chosen our yearly option, subsequence payments or renewals can then be paid by direct debit, credit/debit cards or by BACS
