Save money on your regular journeys
Season Tickets save you money on your regular journeys
If you make the same journey regularly, it may be worth buying a Season ticket. You can choose how long you want your Season ticket to last, from seven days, to any period between one month and one year.
Season tickets are priced on a five day, Monday to Friday working week with Saturdays and Sundays added on at no extra charge. If you have a paper Season ticket, remember to carry your photocard with you when you travel.
Helping you get the best value for your journey
If you are planning to travel regularly on weekdays during peak times, our new Season Ticket Calculator will help you find the best value ticket for your journey. Simply enter your journey details and it will search for the best value ticket.
Tickets you can buy include Flexi Season, Weekly, Monthly, Custom and Annual Season tickets, plus Anytime Day Returns.
Our Season Ticket Calculator is only able to sell one ticket at a time so you may need to buy multiple tickets to get the best value for money. If you’re logged in to your Southeastern account you can favourite your ticket, allowing you to quickly buy it again.
Total period costPlease note annual leave is not factored in to the calculation of the Total period cost.
For 12 calendar months of travel, the Flexi Season ticket Total period cost will vary depending on how many days a week you plan to travel.
For travel up to 2 days a week for 12 calendar months, the calculation for the Total period cost is based on 12 x Flexi Season tickets.
If you plan to travel more than 2 days a week for 12 calendar months, more than 12 Flexi Season tickets will be needed and the calculation for the Total period cost will reflect that.
Customers travelling 3 days per week
If you are travelling 3 days per week, you will need more than one Flexi Season ticket in a month. Flexi Season tickets are valid for up to 28 days, so any days travel unused can be used in the following calendar month. This may not be clear in the Season Ticket Calculator results when a 3 day per week work pattern is selected for an odd number of months (i.e. 1, 3, 5 etc). For a comparable Cost per day, please select an even (i.e. 2, 4, 6 etc) number of months.
Please note this does not offer a full comparison of all the fares available for your journey. If you travel at off-peak times, use our online journey planner.

If you want to plan ahead on a short-term basis, our Monthly Season tickets are an ideal choice. It doesn't have to be for one month either – you can tailor-make your Season ticket to your preferred time frame, from one month to one year and anything in between.
Weekly Season tickets can work out better value than buying a week's worth of daily tickets. With a Weekly Season ticket, you can travel at any time for seven consecutive days.
Our Early Bird Season Tickets are ideal for regular early morning journeys into London from Kent. They offer a preferential rate in standard class on the following routes:
- Between Gravesend and London Charing Cross / London Cannon Street / City Thameslink
- Between Meopham and London Victoria / Elephant & Castle / Blackfriars
Unlike other Season Tickets, Early Bird passes are valid only for journeys that start or finish at Gravesend or Meopham so you won’t be able to use this ticket to enter or exit from another station on your route – unless you are changing at Bromley South to travel to Elephant & Castle or Blackfriars.
Early Bird tickets can only be used on services into London, departing Monday to Friday before 7.00am. You can make your return journey at any time of the day and use any permitted route and train from London, apart from high speed services.
These are not available to use on any high speed services or on our contactless smartcard The Key.
You can buy these season tickets online, from our Southeastern app or from our ticket offices and ticket vending machines at Gravesend and Meopham.
