Off-Peak tickets

Are you travelling after the morning rush hour? Save money on your journey when you buy an Off-Peak ticket.

If you don’t have to be somewhere during the busiest times of the day, this could be the perfect option for you. Whether you’re taking a trip into the city or out to the countryside, this ticket gives you the chance to enjoy quieter train journeys at lower prices.

Why choose Off-Peak train tickets?

When are they valid?

You can travel Off-Peak on weekdays outside busy times. You can also use your Off-Peak train tickets to travel at any time on weekends and bank holidays. The times you can use your tickets vary, so use the journey planner to check for Off-Peak services.

What are the timings?

Off-Peak singles and the outward portion of Off-Peak returns are valid for travel on the date shown on the ticket and until 4.29am the following morning. When using Off-Peak Day tickets, all travel must be completed by 4.29am on the following morning of the date on the ticket.

What are the times for Peak and Off-Peak travel?

The morning peak is generally from when the first train of the day leaves to the last train arriving in London before 10:00am. In the evening it is generally between 16:30 and 19:01 for services leaving London. Anytime outside of this, would generally be considered off peak travel.
