Frequently Asked Question
Q. My husband works away all week and only comes back home for holidays. Can I have a Single Person Discount?
A. No. A person's home is regarded as 'where they would normally live were it not for their work commitments' even if the majority of their time is spent elsewhere. In this case the husband's main residence is with his wife.
