Other products on the Robin Hood Card:
Any individual operator products made available on the Robin Hood card will be subject to the operators own terms and conditions.
All travel is subject to operator own terms and conditions.

Direct Debits
All direct debits will be taken on the 1st of the month. This cannot be changed. Please note the terms and conditions of the Direct Debit scheme as follows:

If we do not receive your direct debit on the first request we will reapply to your bank without notifying you. If we do not receive payment on the second request, your card will be cancelled automatically.

The Direct Debit Payment Amount is due from you to us. You are obligated to make ensure the payment is made.

If you fail to pay any monies due under this agreement or if any Direct Debit is returned unpaid for whatever reason you may not be permitted to re-join the scheme. A minimum period of  three months suspension from the scheme will be enforced. Any owed amount will need to be paid in full before re-joining the scheme. The Smart Ticketing Team will only send written notification of a failed direct debit the first time it happens, so it is your  responsibility to check the payments have been successfully taken. 

The Robin Hood Operators Group may choose to change the monthly cost at any time. You will be given written notice of any change.

Nottingham City Council reserves the right to withdraw the Direct Debit option if the customer is in arrears of their direct debit payments.

Robin Hood season tickets are to be used by person named on the card only. Travelling on someone else’s season ticket is fraud and we reserve the right to cancel participation in the direct debit scheme and hotlist the card should such activity be discovered. In addition we may seek to recover the value of fraudulent journey’s taken.

If your card is lost, or damaged a replacement card will be provided on payment of the fee of £3.
There is no fee for replacing a stolen card as long as a police incident number is provided.

If a card is reported lost, stolen or damaged, or the direct debit cancelled the card will be hotlisted. This means it will no longer work or be accepted on public transport.

It is the responsibility of the scheme member to ensure direct debits are paid and to contact us to make payment by alternative means if a direct debit is missed.

Nottingham City Council provides the Robin Hood card on behalf of the operators, as such operators own terms and conditions also apply to travel.
