Save time
and money

Season Tickets tend to be better value for
money and the longer the ticket duration,
the more you're likely to save. An Annual
Season Ticket, which is valid for 52 weeks,
costs the same as 40 Weekly Season
Tickets, for example. And, you won't have
the hassle of queuing up at a ticket
machine every week to buy or collect

Unlimited travel on
your route

A Season Ticket is all about flexibility.
With a Season Ticket, you could go
backwards and forwards between your
home and destination station as many
times as you like in one day, every single
day if you wanted to.

Buying the right Season Ticket

If you make the same journey more than three times a week, you're probably
better off getting a Season Ticket. But with a few options to choose from, it's
hard to know which one to go for. Our Season Ticket calculator does the maths
for you, helping you make that decision. We'll show you clear costs of each
Season Ticket and highlight the cheapest deal.

Weekly Season Ticket

Seven days

Get seven days of unlimited travel
between the two stations shown on
your train ticket. You can travel at any
time of the day, and it works out
cheaper than buying tickets every day.

Monthly Season Ticket

One month

You'll save more money with a Monthly
Season Ticket than you would by
buying four Weekly Season Tickets.
Enjoy unlimited travel, any time of day,
between the two stations shown on
your train ticket.

Custom Season Ticket

Over one month

If your duration of travel doesn’t fit with
one of these options, create your own –
from over one month to a year. Say you
only need to travel for seven weeks,
then the Custom Season Ticket is for

Annual Season Ticket

This is the best way to save for flexible, anytime rail travel over a 12-month period. If you’re living in the east of England, your Annual Season Ticket – or Annual Gold Card as it’s also known – gives discount for Off-Peak train tickets for you and those travelling with you.

What you’ll need before you can buy a Season Ticket

Heads up! Before you can buy an actual Season Ticket, you’ll need to make sure you have a Photocard to use as a piece of ID. If you don’t have a Photocard, you can request one free of charge from Trainline or pop to your local train station’s ticket office with a passport-sized photo and they’ll make you one for free.

If you have one already, you can tell us your Photocard number when purchasing, and we’ll match it up to your Season Ticket. Just remember that you’ll need to bring both your Season Ticket and Photocard with you at all times when travelling.
