Save money on group bookings

Your journey on Southern can work out cheaper if you’re travelling with friends.

GroupSave gives you a 34% discount when you travel in a group of 3-9 adults, at Off-Peak times – that’s outside busy times on weekdays, and all day on weekends and Bank Holidays.

For each adult in the group up to two children under 5 can travel free and up to four aged between 5 and 15 travel for just £2.

You’ll get the GroupSave discount on these tickets:

  • Anytime Single (at Off-Peak times)
  • Off-Peak Day Return
  • Off-Peak Day Single
  • Off-Peak Day Travelcards outside London
  • Super Off-Peak

When you book online as a group we’ll automatically apply your GroupSave discount.

Groups of 20 or more

If you’re travelling in a group of 20 or more, our group booking service can help you to find the best deal. Contact them on:

We’ll make sure the discount applies for your planned travel, and check which trains have enough seats for your group.

Restrictions on group bookings

You can’t use GroupSave tickets during weekday peak times.

Railcards can’t be used for additional discounts on your GroupSave ticket.

Your whole group has to travel together on the same trains, even if the journey involves changing trains.

There are some days when GroupSave can’t be used on some services – for example when there are major events. See restrictions for the next 12 weeks.
