Check if you're eligible for a season ticket loan
You can apply for a season ticket loan if you’ve been a Co-op colleague for at least 13 weeks.
You can borrow up to £5,000.
You'll pay the loan back directly from your salary in the next 10 paydays after you receive the loan.
If you leave Co-op (including through TUPE transfer) before you pay off the loan, you will have to repay the outstanding balance in full.
