Off-Peak and Super Off-Peak
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.
What times are Off-Peak trains?
Take a look at our Off-Peak train times above.
Off-Peak trains travel at quieter times during the week, all day on Friday and at any time on the weekend.
And since we got rid of all our Friday Peak fares for those customers travelling to and from London Euston, with us, your weekend can officially now start on a Friday!
*These times can differ depending on your departure station.*
What are Super Off-Peak tickets?
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.
What times are Super Off-Peak trains?
Take a look at our Super Off-Peak train times at the top of this page.
Super Off-Peak trains travel at quieter times during the week and on the weekend. You can travel on a Super Off-Peak at the times shown in the table (download by clicking link above), but timings may differ for other destinations on this route. Use the table to find out when the first Super Off-Peak train departs from your station, or just ask one of our team at your local station if you're unsure.
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 Friday. 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.
