Off-Peak train times

Did you know that by using our Quick Train Times tool you can view peak, off-peak and super off-peak train times in an instant to help plan your journey and find the right ticket for you?

Off Peak trains offer cheaper tickets for travelling on trains that are less busy. Providing good value for money, these tickets typically require you to travel at certain times of the day, days of the week or via a particular route.


When can I travel using Off-Peak and Super Off-Peak train tickets?

Off-Peak Single
You can travel on any off-peak train on the date shown on the ticket.

You can travel on any off-peak train. For the outward journey this must be on the date shown on the ticket and for the return journey within one calendar month.
Off-Peak Day Single / Off-Peak Day Return
The outward and return journey must be made on the same date as shown on the ticket but on any off-peak train.
