Ways to save
Nobody wants to pay more than they have to travel by train, so we’ve got plenty of ways you can save money here. From choosing the time and day to getting a Railcard, you can slice pounds of your journey, whether you’re a regular traveller or this is a one-off trip. For example, did you know that booking through third party sites and apps costs you fees? If you book direct through this website or our app, there’s no extra to pay – and if you find the same ticket cheaper elsewhere, we’ll refund you the difference.
Another way to save is travelling in a group. If you book ahead and buy several tickets together on the same trip, you’ll increase your chances of sitting together, and also save money thanks to our group booking offer.
And if you’re a regular train user, you really should get yourself a Railcard. For as little as £30 a year, you can get huge discounts on your off-peak travel. There are different cards for different age groups, so choose the one that’s appropriate for you and start saving today.
