Save money on your trip by booking ahead
Advance tickets for money saving travel
Our Advance Tickets offer great savings on single tickets for specific trains and routes when you book up to 12 weeks in advance. If you're making a return journey, make sure you buy a ticket for each direction. You can mix and match Advance Tickets and times to suit you. The earlier you book, the cheaper they will be – there's only a limited number so don't miss out!
Plus, you can get another 1/3 off the price if you're a railcard holder.
Buy your Advance Ticket at home via our Southeastern On Track app, online or from a station ticket office right up to 6pm the day before you travel.
