Anytime tickets

Get any train, any time with our most flexible ticket.

Feeling spontaneous?

If you don’t want to be tied down to a specific train time, our Anytime fare could be the one for you. Enjoy the freedom to jump on any train on your route, whenever you want.

Anytime tickets also give you the ability to break your journey at any station along your route. So if you’re sightseeing, making an overnight stop, or just like the look of Stafford, hop off and start exploring. You can pick up where you left off when you’re ready.

Anytime single tickets are valid for up to two days after purchase. Anytime return tickets are valid for up to five days after purchase for your outward journey, and the return part of your journey is valid for up to a month.
