Ticket types

Which ticket is right for you?

At Grand Central, train tickets are flexible, easy to buy, simple to understand and offer great value for money.

You should book in advance to get the best deals on train tickets - but there are three main categories of fares:

  • Anytime - Tickets booked for any valid  train
  • Off-peak - Tickets booked for any valid train classed as "Off peak"
  • Advance - Tickets booked for a specific train

Additionally, Super Off-peak tickets are available on other operators and sold via Grand Central.

These categories apply to single and return fares in Standard and First Class.

Our Fair Fares policy means you’ll never pay more than our usual flexible Off-Peak or Anytime rates – even if you buy on-board on the day of travel.

Remember - Grand Central Off-Peak and Anytime fares are flexible and refundable up to the day before travel (please see our Passenger Charter).

Grand Central & Connections

Connecting fares are available at some stations, giving you more flexibility at a lower price.
