Weekend Super Off-Peak

Save serious money on weekend journeys

Our weekend Super Off-Peak fares save you money while you travel. You’ll save money whatever your journey and you can save even more if you have a Railcard.

When can I travel?

If you want complete flexibility with your travel times then an Off-Peak Day Single, Day Return or Day Travelcard is for you. If you have a Super Off-Peak ticket and need to travel when it isn’t valid, you’ll just have to pay the difference – you’ll need to do this before you board the train.

Here’s how to work out when you can use your Super Off-Peak ticket at weekends and public holidays. (You may be able to travel earlier than shown below, so check when you can travel with National Rail’s journey planner).

Travel towards London Waterloo:

• Weekend Super Off-Peak tickets are not valid on trains arriving into London Waterloo and any station in London Zones 1-6 between 09:31 and 11:59.

Travel from London Waterloo:

• Weekend Super Off-Peak tickets are not valid if you board a train departing London Waterloo between 04:30 and 10:59 or 16:00 and 18:30; Vauxhall between 04:30 and 11:05 or 16:03 and 18:35; Clapham Junction between 04:30 and 11:05 or 16:09 and 18:40.

• If you have a Super Off-Peak Day Travelcard and you are travelling wholly within the London Zones 1-6 area, these restrictions do not apply.

Non-London journeys:

• Weekend Super Off-Peak tickets are not valid on trains departing between 04:30 and 10:59, except as below.

• Weekend Super Off-Peak tickets are valid for travel at any time if you’re travelling from or to a station along one of the following lines of routes:

West of England: Tisbury – Exeter St Davids; Warminster – Bristol Temple Meads; Westbury – Yeovil.

South Western Mainline: Brockenhurst – Weymouth/Lymington.

But you can’t break your journey if you travel to, from, or via a station outside of these lines or routes, for example Bournemouth – London Waterloo.

Do I have the right ticket for my journey?

Here are a couple of ways you can check:

• Have a look at the top of your ticket. If it shows W SUP OPK or W S OPK, you can travel only at certain times, as explained in the “When can I travel” section above. If it shows SUP OFFPK, you can travel at any time.

• Your ticket may show a link to a Restriction Code page on the National Rail website – such as nationalrail.co.uk/UR. Visit this link to see when your ticket is valid. You can view this on a smartphone, tablet or laptop/desktop.

• You can use National Rail’s “My Ticket” to see all the trains your ticket is valid on – just enter your ticket details.

Which ticket types are available?

Super Off-Peak tickets are available as Day Singles, Day Returns and Day Travelcards (giving unlimited rail, Underground, bus, tram and DLR travel in London Zones 1-6) for travel in Standard or First Class.
