Top tips on booking cheaper train tickets

Book directly through us

Did you know that we don’t charge booking fees? That means you can enjoy even better value fares when you book directly with us.

Go Off-Peak

If you can be flexible with your travel arrangements, it’s worth travelling at Off-Peak times rather than during rush hour. Fares are usually cheaper and carriages quieter, too.

Use a Railcard

Do you travel by rail regularly? Then check if you’re eligible for a Railcard, as it’ll get you 1/3 off your train tickets for an entire year. There are plenty of options, including Senior, 26-30 and Two Together cards.
