Save by travelling outside busy commuter times

If you’re planning to travel during quieter times of day then one of our range of Off-Peak or Super Off-Peak tickets can offer great savings over our Anytime tickets. If you're travelling in a group of 3 to 9 people, our GroupSave discount makes these tickets even cheaper!

Choose the ticket that suits you best from the following range:

Off-Peak

Off-Peak tickets are available across the Abellio Greater Anglia network. They are issued in 'Off-Peak Day' and 'Off-Peak' versions. Off-Peak Day Singles and Returns, and Off-Peak Singles are valid on the date shown.  Off-Peak Returns are valid on the date shown on the outward journey and for one month for the return journey.

For many journeys, both Day and one-month returns are available.  For very short journeys, only Off-Peak Day tickets can be bought, and for the longest journeys only Off-Peak (one month) returns are available.

As Off-Peak tickets are cheaper than Anytime tickets, time restrictions apply.  These are shown in the table below.

First Class Off-Peak tickets are also available for many journeys.  They have the same time restrictions as the equivalent Standard Class ticket.

Super Off-Peak

Super Off-Peak tickets are our best-value tickets for on-the-day travel.  They are available for many journeys in the area south of Manningtree and Cambridge.  As they are great value, they have more time restrictions than Off-Peak tickets.  Please see the table below.

Day Travelcards

A Day Travelcard from outside Greater London offers you a day return to London combined with unlimited use of the transport network in Greater London. This covers the London Underground, London Overground, almost all National Rail services, all scheduled London Buses, the London Tramlink system in south London and the DLR (Docklands Light Railway).

Day Travelcards come in Off-Peak and Super Off-Peak versions. Super Off-Peak Travelcards are available from stations south of Manningtree and Cambridge inclusive.

Off-Peak Family Travelcards, for adults and children travelling together, are also available from stations south of Manningtree/Harwich and Cambridge.

The table below gives details of time restrictions.
