Great Western Railway Season Ticket types

There are four GWR Season Ticket types:

GWR Weekly Season Tickets

If you’re travelling three or more days a week, the GWR Weekly Season Ticket is the right option for you. With this Season Ticket type, you’ll get seven days of unlimited travel between the stations shown on your ticket, which is way cheaper than buying four daily return tickets.

GWR Monthly Season Tickets

If you need to travel by train on the same route for more than a week, consider buying the GWR Monthly Season Ticket – it allows you to travel between two stations as much as you want within a full calendar month. This option is cheaper than buying four Weekly Season Tickets.

GWR Custom Season Tickets

Need to travel more than a month but less than a year? Then the GWR Custom Season Ticket is right for you. You can customise your Season Ticket by adding on extra days or months. Whichever duration of travel you choose, the discounted rate will be the same.

GWR Annual Season Tickets

If you’re travelling on a specific route throughout the year, the GWR Annual Season Ticket is the best option for you to save money. What’s more, if you’re travelling between stations within the South or East of England you’ll automatically get an Annual Gold Card, unlocking even more discounts.

How to buy Great Western Season Tickets

Instead of queueing at the train station to get your Season Ticket on the day of travel, you can buy it online with us from our Season Tickets page.

If you’re buying your GWR Season Ticket for the first time, make sure you have a Photocard to use as proof of ID. If you don’t have a Photocard, you can either request one free of charge from us by filling in this form or take a passport-sized photo to your local ticket office and they’ll make you one for free.

If you already have a Photocard, you can tell us your Photocard number at the time of purchase and we’ll match it up to your GWR Season Ticket. Just remember that you’ll always need to bring both your Photocard and Season Ticket with you when travelling.
