Working with West Midlands Trains

We had an exciting time working with our newest payroll partner, West Midlands Trains, earlier this month! Voyager Alliance is proud to have partnered with West Midlands Trains, and we are thrilled to now be visiting depots across the West Midlands!

West Midlands Trains have been serving the local community since 2015 and have become a staple for travelling across the county. We are proud to work with West Midlands Trains to provide a free employee benefit which helps improve financial wellbeing and resilience, especially with the current cost of living increases.

Over the 2-day Health & Wellbeing Roadshows, we visited Birmingham New Street and Tyseley Stations, to meet office staff, drivers, conductors, engineers and even more staff.

It was great to meet so many of West Midlands Trains employees at the 2 depots, and shout all about their newest employee benefit. Members are at the heart of everything we do, so we’re thrilled to provide an easy way to save and borrow straight from their pay.

Saving a few £s straight from your pay is so easy and small amounts saved regularly soon add up. Try out our easy-to-use savings calculator to see how much you could save. We recommend saving small, manageable amounts and then watch your savings grow!

We know from time to time we all need to borrow, and Voyager Alliance members have access to a range of flexible Personal Loans. Use our loan calculator to see how much you could borrow, and how much you would repay with stress-free repayments straight from your payroll.

Our Quick Quiz

During our visit we asked employees to take part in our Quick Quiz – where we ask 5 questions about their personal finances. 35 West Midlands Trains staff took part and all were entered into a draw to win a £50 All4One voucher!

Thank you to everyone who entered our Quick Quiz, and congratulations to Caroline Peace, from Tyseley Station, who was our lucky winner! Caroline joined Voyager Alliance as soon as she saw West Midlands Trains and Voyager Alliance had partnered on their intranet and thinks everyone should be a member of a credit union and begin saving. Caroline is saving straight from her pay, ready for a rainy day and for Christmas.

“Wow, thanks!” Caroline said when we called her with the great news of her win! She’s going to try and hide her voucher from the children and make sure she spends it on herself. Today was Caroline’s first day back after a lovely relaxing week of annual leave, so we hope this put a smile on her face!

“My brother lives in Norway and has recently had a baby. I’m flying out to Norway in August to meet my new baby niece, so I’m going to treat myself to some new clothes.”

Congratulations Caroline, enjoy treating yourself!
