Weekly season tickets

Save money and time with a weekly train ticket

If you travel frequently between the same two stations, you’re likely to save money getting a weekly season ticket compared to buying daily an Anytime Day Return.

With a weekly train pass, you’ll get seven days of unlimited travel between the two stations on you ticket and any stations in-between on your route. Your season ticket can also be used as much as you like at any time of day, including evenings and weekends saving you more money and time.

Use the season ticket calculator to find out how much you could save and then buy your ticket here.

Buying and renewing weekly season tickets

Before you buy an adult or child weekly season ticket, you’ll need a Photocard. Just take a recent passport-sized photo of yourself to your local ticket office and they’ll make one for free. If you’re getting a child Photocard, you’ll also need to bring a passport or birth certificate for proof of age.

Once you have a Photocard, you can buy or renew a Standard or First Class weekly season ticket. Children (aged 5-15 inclusive) get a 50% discount on Standard and First Class season tickets including London Travelcards. If your child turns 16 and still has a valid weekly train ticket, the 50% off travel still applies until the ticket expires. Once they've turned 16, they can buy a 16-17 Saver to keep getting 50% off train travel.


If you have our free contactless Touch Smartcard, you can buy weekly season ticket online, on our app or at one of our stations. Tickets can be added instantly onto smartcards with our app and a compatible smart device. If you’re collecting your ticket from your chosen station, you’ll need to wait two hours before you can add it onto your smartcard from a reader.

With a smartcard, you can plan ahead with confidence and avoid the queues by buying and renewing your season ticket online or on our app up to 14 days in advance.


You can also buy a paper weekly season ticket from one of our stations, online or our app. If you buy online or on our app, your ticket will be ready for collection one hour after booking. Read our ticket collection information before you go to the station.

If you're buying a new weekly season ticket or renewing a season ticket with a break in continuity, this will need to be bought on the date you want it to start. If the start date is on Monday or Tuesday after a public holiday, your season ticket can be issued on Sunday from 06:00.

If you're renewing with no break in continuity on Sunday, Monday or Tuesday after a public holiday, you can renew on Friday from 12:00. If the start date is on any other day, your ticket can be issued from 12:00 the day before.
