Ways to save on your train ticket to Tate Liverpool
Get to the Tate on your time when you take the train to Liverpool. There are trains for different days and times to fit your schedule.
You can also save on your tickets by booking direct, choosing an off-peak time, or buying a Railcard. When you book your tickets with Avanti, you can forget about booking fees. You can also choose to schedule your journey for an off-peak time.
Off-peak times are usually before or after rush hour and can lead to a quieter, less-crowded ride. If you have a flexible schedule, travelling off-peak offers better and cheaper journeys.
There are also many different Railcards to consider. Buy a Railcard and save on any train rides when you use it. You can get a Railcard for yourself based on your age, whether you’re a student, and who you’re travelling with.
For example, you can invest in a Two Together Railcard to travel with a partner, relative, or friend. This Railcard allows you both to save ⅓ the cost of fare when using it. Or, if you’re commuting with more people, consider a Family and Friends Railcard.
The Family and Friends Railcard allows up to four adults and four children to travel and save on fares. Save ⅓ the price of fare on all adult tickets and 60% on children’s ticket prices.
