When you use your annual season ticket travelcard to make pointless and unnecessary journeys just because you can.

The early stages of travelcard abuse can typically be identified by young professionals trying to justify the annual expense of their travel card by stating something similar to "well I have paid for it so I may as well use it".

This eventually progresses into downright travelcard abuse.

Though its origin is when referring to the London Underground it has been known to apply to other annual tickets purchased for other methods of transportation.
I haven't got a lot planned for tomorrow I'll probably just engage in some travelcard abuse.

Let's abuse the travel card and meet up at here *points to random station on map* because I think it has a funny station name.

Why did I go all the way to South London just to go to Mc.Donalds when there's around 46 of them much closer? Because I can! That's travelcard abuse at its best baby!
