If you get paid fortnightly, why not buy your ticket on pay day?

Q. How much will I save if I buy a 14 Day RailPass?
A. The 14 Day RailPass is exactly twice the price of a 7 Day RailPass.

When you buy a 14 Day RailPass you only pay for eight return trips, so you can enjoy six days travel for free.

If you regularly purchase single or return tickets you could save even more money with a 14 Day RailPass. For example, you save from 35% when compared to buying 14 daily return tickets if you travel up to 10km e.g. from St Leonards to the City.
