Travel Card Applications
2018/2019 Travel Card information
For students wishing to purchase a 16+Travel Card for 2018/2019 please read the following information carefully.
Applications for the Kent 16+ Travel Card scheme are now open. You need to complete your application by Friday 13 July 2018 to ensure the pass can be collected from your child's school on the first day of term. Any applications received after this date will be processed within 28 working days of KCC receiving them.
You will need to pay KCC directly for your 16+ travel card at the time of application, unless you have made a bursary application, in which case Knole Academy will make the payment on your behalf.

You need to make payment by debit or credit card (directly to KCC) in order to complete a 16+ online application.
Before you apply or renew you will need:

Payment by Instalments
It is possible to split payments into 2 x £200 instalments: the travel card can be purchased as a full year card at £400, or a half-yearly card at £200. The full year card runs from the start of September to the end of August. The first half-yearly card runs from the start of September to the end of February, and the second half-yearly card runs from beginning of March to the end of August. Parents wanting to split the payments should apply for a half-yearly card by 13 July and then re-apply for the second half-yearly card at the beginning of February.
Students can apply for a bursary which will cover the cost of the travel card. If you wish to make an application for a bursary, please follow the link by clicking here. Applications, along with the appropriate proof of family income, must be received by Mr Turner by Friday 6 July. If your bursary application is successful, Knole Academy will make the £400 payment to KCC on your behalf.
