Unregistered key cards

If you have a key smartcard that you did not originally enter your details for, you should register it to ensure you can manage your account online.

How the key smartcard works

  • If you already have your key smartcard, then simply log in to purchase tickets.

  • New users can sign up for the key smartcard, which is free of charge for the first one.

  • You should allow around 2 days for your new card to be delivered, which after this you can then log in and purchase tickets.

  • Remember that tickets bought before 9pm will be ready for use the following day.
