How to find the cheapest train tickets to Portsmouth
There are a number of ways in which you can find cheap train tickets to Portsmouth to help you save money and explore Portsmouth. Whether you are getting a train to Portsmouth for work or leisure, our journey planner can help you find the cheapest available tickets on the days you want to travel. Cheap tickets to Portsmouth can be done in two very simple ways and can save you money on your train tickets.
The first way you can get your hands on cheaper train tickets to Portsmouth is by using a national railcard. If you travel more than a few times a year, buying an eligible railcard can allow you to save up to 1/3 off the price of your train tickets*, meaning you can spend more on things to see and do in Newcastle. To see out the different types of railcards, eligibility requirements and to buy a card online, check out our railcards page.
Another way for cheap tickets to Portsmouth is by purchasing an Advanced ticket. In most cases, the earlier you book Advanced tickets, the cheaper these tickets will be. Advance tickets typically go on sale 12 weeks in advance, so if you have a night out with friends pencilled on the calendar, simply look out for the “Advanced ticket” type when your search for tickets using our Journey Planner, or sign up to our Ticket alert to find out as soon as your tickets go on sale. Make sure you book these tickets as early as possible, because the longer you wait, the more the price can go up.
