There are lots of options for buying train tickets, so you can find one that suits you.
Save money by getting a monthly or annual season ticket, which are most suited to regular rail users. If you get the bus to the station or to your final destination why not try getting a PLUSBUS ticket that combines the two and saves you money? If you have a railcard you get a discount on the whole ticket too, not just your train travel.
There is a railcard to suit everyone and plenty of discounts to be had. If any of the below applies to you then you might be eligible for a railcard:
- If you are aged between 16-25 or over 60.
- If you have a disability.
- If you regularly travel with friends and family.
- If you are travelling within London and the South East.
Each railcard has its own terms and conditions, so take a look and see which one works best for you. Visit National Rail Enquiries for more information.
