Tips on how to book cheaper train tickets
More for families
Taking your little monkeys to the zoo? Up to four children aged 5-15 can travel for just £2 each on Off-Peak services. Even better, kids under five go free, leaving you with a lot more money in your pocket to spend on your day out.
Pack your Railcard
Another way to save money on family outings is with a Family and Friends Railcard. There are plenty of other types of Railcard available too and each one can save you 1/3 on most train journeys.
Time it right
No one wants to travel in a busy carriage if they can help it. Look for Off-Peak times and not only will you have more elbow room, but you’ll get cheaper tickets too. Check our journey planner to see which times apply.
