Terms & Conditions

1. Tickets for your journey should be purchased before boarding the train and when buying tickets you must show the Railcard. You must have the Railcard with you on your journey and show the valid Railcard and ticket to rail staff at their request. If you do not show both the Railcard and the ticket, you will be required to pay the full price Standard or First Class Single fare, as appropriate for your journey as if no ticket was purchased before starting the journey and in some cases a penalty fare. This does not apply if there was no ticket office at the station at which you began your journey or if the ticket office was closed and there was no ticket machine from which you could buy a discounted ticket.

2. Time restrictions - ask for details.

3. In the case of some low price tickets the actual discount with a Railcard may be slightly lower than that advertised.

4. The right is reserved to revise these Conditions and availability of the tickets detailed here. The Train Companies will endeavour to give three months' notice of any changes before they are due to come into effect.
