M6toll launch new Local Saver discount pass
M6toll is launching a new addition to their ‘Saver’ range of passes this summer, giving big discounts off short local journeys. The Local Saver pass is the M6toll’s latest innovation to deliver on its pledge to make the route more accessible to local motorists. Aimed at car drivers living in and around the postcode districts nearest the M6toll of Lichfield, Tamworth, Sutton Coldfield, Walsall and Cannock, each pass provides six short or mid-distance trips for GBP29.
There is also a version for van drivers at GBP49, aimed at local businesses and sole traders. The new Savers product opens up the M6toll’s new ANPR technology and cashless payments to more drivers in the region, so drivers can hop on and hop off the M6toll at any time of the day or week, with all trip payments linked to their vehicle registered online, with savings automatically applied from the very first trip. The launch of the new Local Saver pass is part of M6toll’s new pricing structure which comes into effect on Monday August 22nd..
As part of the changes, there will be a 50p increase for cars, 80p for vans and 90p for trucks. The Local Saver aims to benefit those living nearest the road who can use it the most. Drivers from further afield have the option of ‘Return Pass’ giving 20% savings off same day returns, and the Standard account which saves 5% of all trips. Michael Whelan, General Manager at M6toll said:
“It’s great to be able to extend our ANPR system to more customers this summer. It’s another demonstration of our investment in making it easier to use the M6toll, so drivers can get from A to B more quickly, smoothly and safely.
Innovations like these help drivers to switch their trips on to the M6toll, and in turn that opens up capacity and improves congestion on the adjacent road network. The free-flowing reliability of the M6toll shaves precious time off short trips as well as long distance journeys, but it’s online accounts that give drivers the ease and convenience of knowing they can use the M6toll whenever they want.”
Local Saver is a direct result of the improvements being made through the ‘RoadAhead’ digital transformation programme, which will deliver a world-class tolling service to the 18 million drivers and businesses that rely on the motorway every year.
