Season Ticket Discounts

Find out more about discounts

Season Ticket Discounts


  • Children (aged 5-15 years inclusive) receive a 50% discount on Season Tickets and Travelcards, for both First Class and Standard travel.
  • 7-Day Season Tickets/Travelcards - If the child reaches their 16th birthday during the validity of the ticket, a 7-Day Season Ticket with the 50% discount will remain valid.
  • Monthly or Longer Season Tickets or Travelcards - If the child's sixteenth birthday occurs during the validity of the ticket, the 50% discount will remain valid. However, if the child is aged over 15 years and 8 months old when purchasing the ticket, the season ticket/Travelcard may only have a maximum validity period of four months.


Railcard discounts are not available on Season Tickets, as these tickets are already heavily discounted.

Passenger's charter discounts

Each train company passenger's charter gives performance targets and details of the discounts available for monthly or longer season ticket renewals in the event of below standard reliability or time keeping for the train service group. Details of any discounts are announced locally by individual train companies.

Season ticket refunds

If you stop travelling and no longer need your season ticket, please hand it in at or post it to the ticket office where you bought it. Full information about season ticket refunds can be found in the Season Ticket Terms and Conditions page.
