Enjoy a family day out

It's easy to have an affordable day out with the kids – buy one valid adult ticket on Southeastern services and take up to four children with you for £1 each.

Get some inspiration for places worth a visit that the kids will love too. If you are looking for some inspiration of things to eat, see and do on our network, check out our itineraries which are full of days out ideas. 

Buying Kids for a Quid Tickets

You can buy Kids for a Quid Tickets online, from any of our ticket offices or ticket machines.

Under 5's go free and tickets cost £1 for children aged 5-15 when travelling with an adult with a valid ticket.

As they are already a real bargain, Kids for a Quid Tickets can't be further discounted with railcards, or used on journeys wholly within London Zones 1-9.
