Summer Offer FAQ's

What dates and times is the ticket offer valid?

This is valid between Monday 24 June to Sunday 18 August 2019. Tickets for travel are only valid from 9:30am Mondays to Fridays and all-day Saturday and Sunday and Bank Holidays.

Where can I buy this ticket?

You can buy this ticket online, at ticket offices and ticket vending machines.

Can I use the tickets in conjunction with Kids for £1?

Yes, you can on Southeastern train services.

Can I use this offer in conjunction with a railcard?

No, this offer is primarily aimed at non-rail users to attract them to take the train, and at occasional users who don’t travel very often. Railcards already offer a competitive discount on our Off-Peak tickets, which are available all year round.

Why are these stations only receiving the offer and not others?

These locations form a part of our Southeastern hidden gems campaign so we have lots of unique places at these destinations for our passengers to visit.

Can I use the tickets in reverse – e.g. Canterbury to London?

No, these return tickets can only be used from London as the origin station to the 12 destinations specified. London includes both London Terminals and any other station within the London Travelcard zones (zones 1-6).

Why does the online booking engine sometimes show more expensive ticket options?

Some journeys from certain London destinations will advise you to use the London Underground to travel to another London Terminal and then use a different rail service. In most cases it is cheaper to purchase your Summer Offer ticket from this different London Terminal and then use PAYG to use the London Underground to get there.

Are these tickets available on GTR services?

Yes – where a GTR service is a valid journey between the origin and destination stations, however Kids for a Quid is not valid on GTR services.

Are these tickets available on high speed services?

Yes, they are.

Why are some stations more expensive than others?

On average each ticket price reflects a 30% discount off a standard fare from London (zones 1-6) to these destinations.

I purchased the offer tickets to Canterbury, but now want to go as far as Deal, can I just buy an extension £5?

Changes to travel are allowed, subject to purchase of the correct excess fare and any administration fee that may be applicable.
