DayRover tickets come in two forms, Scratch Off and Pre-dated, depending upon when you want to travel.

  • Scratch Off tickets (Family, Train & Bus DayRovers), which are sold at bus stations and some Tourist Information Centres, have no specific date of travel. On the day you want to use the ticket, simply scratch off the day, date and month and year and seal it with the protective overlay. Scratch Off tickets are not sold at rail outlets.
  • Pre-dated tickets (Family, Train & Bus, Train DayRovers) are sold at rail stations. You can buy them on the day of use or in advance if you know when you want to travel. You can even buy your Train DayRover on the train if there is no booking office open.

Valid by any train timed to depart between the following times:

  • Mondays-Fridays                                    09:30-00:30
  • Saturdays, Sundays and Public Holidays    05:00-00:30

Tickets are not valid on services Monday to Friday between 16:01 and 18:29.

Note that use between midnight and 0030 is permitted on a ticket showing the previous day’s date.
