FAQ - Term Plus bus passes

Direct Debit Payments

What is the next step once I have applied?

You will be given the opportunity to pay for your first ticket by credit / debit card so you benefit from our services within 5 days of receiving your application.

Your direct debit application will take approximately 7-10 days to process. You will receive a welcome letter confirming your details and payments timescales. 

When will the money be taken from my account?

The first direct debit payment from your account will be taken on the initial start day of your ticket, for instance if you selected a start date of 1st August 2018 (you will pay for this ticket by credit / debit card) your direct debit will be collected on 1st September 2018 for the subsequent ticket. This calendar date will then be the date your debit payment is made for every month that you are a member of the scheme. If this falls on a bank holiday, your payment will be taken the next working day.

Can West Midlands Travel Ltd change the amount they take out of my account?

We will only collect the authorised amount. If the amount changes, we will notify you in writing at least 10 working days in advance.

What if my ticket does not arrive in time?

If your ticket has not arrived 5 days before your current ticket expires, please contact the Direct Sales Team on 0121 254 7272 or email us at buspass@nationalexpress.com. WMT Ltd will not refund travel tickets that have been purchased as a result of tickets not arriving due to a delay in the postal service.

I already have a photocard do I still need to send in a photograph with my application?

Yes. All photographs are scanned into our system, so that if you ever lose your ID card we can send out a replacement, subject to an administration fee. You will need to either upload or send a passport sized photograph with every new application.

Can I change my ticket subscription?

Refunds will not be given for any additional tickets purchased.

What if I forget my ticket?
