Off-Peak & Super Off-Peak Timetable

What are Off-Peak tickets?

Off-Peak tickets are a great way to save money on a full price train fare. You can buy them at any time, then travel during the quieter periods. If you're not travelling to a tight deadline and can be flexible with your journey times. Off-Peak tickets are perfect for you.

You can buy some Off-Peak tickets for up to half the started fare price, but only when purchased as a Return in conjunction with another single fare. All the usual child discounts apply.

What times are Off-Peak trains?

Off-Peak trains travel at quieter times during the week and at any time on the weekend. And since we got rid of Friday afternoon Peak fares, with us, your weekend starts at 09:26 Friday mornings. These times can differ depending on your departure station. Download the table (link above) to find out when the first Off-Peak train departs from your station, or just ask one of our team at your local station if you're unsure.

Super Off-Peak tickets offer even greater savings if you can travel at the quietest times and only on selected routes. They're available for travel between London, Birmingham, and Wolverhampton, including the stations in-between.

Beat the queues

Avoid rush hour for cheaper fares

Why brave rush hour if you don’t need to? Off-Peak tickets save you money on the full-price fare and give you a little bit more room to stretch out by avoiding busy commuter times. Perfect if you’re not travelling on a tight deadline.

You can buy Off-Peak tickets at any time. Just make sure you travel during the middle of the day, in the evenings, or any time on weekends. And because we all know weekends should start as soon as possible, our Off-Peak hours start from Euston departures from 09:26 on Friday morning. Afternoon restrictions from London Euston do not apply on Fridays. If you can be flexible with your journey times, an Off-Peak train could be just the ticket.
