Travelling in a group of 10+ people? Then Group Travel tickets could be for you
Disruption on our West of England Line
From Monday 5 September, we will be introducing a temporary reduced timetable on the West of England line, click here for more information.
If 10 or more of you are travelling together on a group booking you can save with a Group Travel ticket for Standard Class and First Class off-peak journeys.
Travelling in a group of 3-9 people?
GroupSave train tickets could save you up to 34% off adult tickets when 3 to 9 people are travelling together. We’ll automatically apply the GroupSave discount when you buy online and on the SWR app. Make the most out of this fantastic saving.
Group Travel discount
The cheapest tickets will always be offered to your group for your journey. If you’re travelling to London, we can include unlimited travel on London Underground and Docklands Light Railway with a Group Day Travelcard.
