The calculation of the monthly or quarterly rate is based on the basic price for the training which I have listed in the pricelist. I do not exclude the price change during the year.

A similar principle as a public transport coupon called „lítačka“

The principle of calculating the price is similar to that of the MHD coupon called „lítačka“. The price for a given month or quarter is identical for all swimmers, only the amount may vary according to the current (on my side) number of training sessions in that month, respectively in a quarter. This is the number of all Fridays or all Tuesdays in a given month, which are on working days. We may miss some training on holiday occasions, etc. Each month we have a different number of bikes, so you can find the price in the price list for one training. The rental cost I pay is also based on the total number of training sessions in the month (excluding holidays). Therefore, from the number of training sessions in the month, I also deduct the amount of the monthly or quarterly rate. Here I will explain the different programs offered in my price list.

  • If you want to choose only some individual training sessions and some workouts leave out from a payment, you pay one-time training (similar to a one-time ticket in public transport). I am saying this opportunity „ONE-DAY SUBSCRIPTION“. Such training can not be ordered too long in advance – I prefer swimmers who pay a continuous period and the terms „do not choose“, therefore, only vacant time is left for one-day subscription.

  • If you pay the whole calendar month, then you have the price in the converted workout cheaper, but you pay all of my party offered course dates. No training can be omitted, although in advance you know that you will not be on it. This is the same as the monthly coupon „lítačka“ in the public transport. This option I call „MONTHLY SUBSCRIPTION“.

  • If you pay for the whole quarter (ideally a calendar quarter, but it doesn't have to be the case, it's enough for three calendar months), again you pay all the trainings in this quarter (you can't omit any), although in advance you know you won't be on it. This option I call „QUARTERLY SUBSCRIPTION“. This is the same as quarterly coupon „lítačka“ in the public transport.

If you choose a monthly or quarterly subscription, the amount of the subscription does not affect any pre-scheduled absence (for example, the fact that you will be on holiday). If you will not be able to come to some training, I will be glad for the info, but it does not affect the price. You pay the whole period, which consists of all the individual sessions of the month. The price per training conversion is in the price list only for the method of calculating the subscription price for the entire period. As with public transport lítačky you pay for the whole month (practically all the days of the month) and you will not get a discount just because you were not in Prague for the last week and you were on vacation and and thanks to that you did not use the subway. You just pay „option“ to get the training for the given month or quarter. If you don't want to do so, you only have the option to pay for selected dates within a one-day subscription, but but for the one-day subscription price! Consider yourself the best option for you.

1. I do not want to pay the entire quarter, I prefer monthly payments

Example 1: I want to attend trainings in November 2018, but in advance I know that in the term 9.11.2018 I am on vacation and that I will not be able to attend a swimming course to come. For example, I have these options to pay the course:

Option 1: The term 9.11.2018 will be shown on the invoice, I will pay all the trainings of the month in the program „MONTHLY SUBSCRIPTION“:

Swimming course 2.11.2018CZK 400
Swimming course 9.11.2018 – I pay it for a monthly subscription, although I know I'm not going to take part in swimmingCZK 400
Swimming course 16.11.2018CZK 400
Swimming course 23.11.2018CZK 400
Swimming course 30.11.2018CZK 400
Total November (5 trainings × CZK 400)CZK 2000

Option 2: The term 9.11.2018 will be excluded, it will not be indicated on the invoice, I will pay individual trainings in the program „ONE-DAY SUBSCRIPTION“:

Swimming course 2.11.2018CZK 500
Swimming course 16.11.2018CZK 500
Swimming course 23.11.2018CZK 500
Swimming course 30.11.2018CZK 500
Total for selected individual training sessions in November (4 trainings × CZK 500)CZK 2000

Result: In this case, „MONTHLY SUBSCRIPTION“ would be as advantageous as „ONE-DAY SUBSCRIPTION“. Price difference CZK 2000 – CZK 2000 = CZK 0.

2. I'll spend the whole quarter, especially if it's as cheap as possible

Example 2: I want to attend the training courses in October 2018 to December 2018, but I know in advance that on 12.10.2018, 9.11.2018, 21.12.2018 and 28.12.2018 I'm going to be on holiday and that I will not be able to attend the swimming course. For example, I have these options to pay a course:

Option 1: The terms 12.10.2018, 9.11.2018, 21.12.2018 and 28.12.2018 will be given on the invoice, I will pay all the trainings of the given quarter in the program „QUARTERLY SUBSCRIPTION“:

Swimming course 5.10.2018CZK 300
Swimming course 12.10.2018 – I pay it for a quarterly subscription, although I know I'm not going to take part in swimmingCZK 300
Swimming course 19.10.2018CZK 300
Swimming course 26.10.2018CZK 300
Swimming course 2.11.2018CZK 300
Swimming course 9.11.2018 – I pay it for a quarterly subscription, although I know I'm not going to take part in swimmingCZK 300
Swimming course 16.11.2018CZK 300
Swimming course 23.11.2018CZK 300
Swimming course 30.11.2018CZK 300
Swimming course 7.12.2018CZK 300
Swimming course 14.12.2018CZK 300
Swimming course 21.12.2018 – I pay it for a quarterly subscription, although I know I'm not going to take part in swimmingCZK 300
Swimming course 28.12.2018 – I pay it for a quarterly subscription, although I know I'm not going to take part in swimmingCZK 300
Total for the entire quarter (13 trainings × CZK 300)CZK 3900

Option 2: The terms 12.10.2018, 9.11.2018, 21.12.2018 and 28.12.2018 will be excluded, they will not be shown on the invoice, I will pay the individual trainings in the „ONE-DAY SUBSCRIPTION“:

Swimming course 5.10.2018CZK 500
Swimming course 19.10.2018CZK 500
Swimming course 26.10.2018CZK 500
Total for selected individual training sessions in October (3 trainings × CZK 500)CZK 1500
Swimming course 2.11.2018CZK 500
Swimming course 16.11.2018CZK 500
Swimming course 23.11.2018CZK 500
Swimming course 30.11.2018CZK 500
Total for selected individual training sessions in November (4 trainings × CZK 500)CZK 2000
Swimming course 7.12.2018CZK 500
Swimming course 14.12.2018CZK 500
Total for selected individual training sessions in December (2 trainings × CZK 500)CZK 1000
Total for the entire quarter (9 trainings × CZK 500)CZK 4500

Dates from October would be ordered first in September, the November dates would have gone to order first in October and the December dates would be ordered in November first, all assuming that the dates are free, ie. the course will not be filled. However, I do not recommend to rely on the vacancy. Not only that this option will cost you dearly, these dates would not have to remain free. However, if you want to choose different dates from Tuesdays and Fridays together, this option may be best for you.

Option 3: I will pay the dates in October in the „ONE-DAY SUBSCRIPTION“ program, in November I will pay „MONTHLY SUBSCRIPTION“ and I will pay again in the „ONE-DAY SUBSCRIPTION“ program in December:

Swimming course 5.10.2018CZK 500
Swimming course 19.10.2018CZK 500
Swimming course 26.10.2018CZK 500
Total for selected individual training sessions in October (3 trainings × CZK 500)CZK 1500
Swimming course 2.11.2018CZK 400
Swimming course 9.11.2018 – I pay it for a monthly subscription, although I know I'm not going to take part in swimmingCZK 400
Swimming course 16.11.2018CZK 400
Swimming course 23.11.2018CZK 400
Swimming course 30.11.2018CZK 400
Total November (5 trainings × CZK 400)CZK 2000
Swimming course 7.12.2018CZK 500
Swimming course 14.12.2018CZK 500
Total for selected individual training sessions in December (2 trainings × CZK 500)CZK 1000
Total for the entire quarter (1500 + 2000 + 1000)CZK 4500

You will use hybrid monthly and one-day subscriptions. The October dates should be ordered first in September, the December dates would be ordered in November this time, all provided the terms are free, ie the course will not be filled.

Result: In this case, the „QUARTERLY SUBSCRIPTION“ program would be most advantageous. The price difference of option 2 and option 1 is: CZK 4500 – CZK 3900 = CZK 600. The price difference of option 3 and option 1 is: CZK 4500 – CZK 3900 = CZK 600.

You are an adult, so you can calculate in advance whether it is better for you to pay for the entire month or the whole quarter, or to expose the dates and pay for the one-day subscription only for the selected dates, but they are then for the price valid for „ONE-DAY SUBSCRIPTION“, so they are much more expensive! If you know in advance that you cannot come to about one term of the month, it is definitely worth a quarterly subscription compared to a one-day subscription. When we compare monthly and one-day subscriptions, it depends on the number of trainings in the month and on the level of planned absences. When there are fewer trainings per month, in some cases, one-day subscription may be more advantageous for you in certain absences, but I would not do this because the courses could be full and you would not get the required dates. The advantage of a one-day subscription is that it is possible to pay each term separately, one after another.
