“Travelling by train is cheaper than you think, and our new bargain Hare Fares mean people can travel for less.

“Our region has so much to offer and whether it’s a trip to the city or coast, shopping or sightseeing, we’re giving people more money to spend on having a great time by helping them save money on their train fare.

“Hare Fares can be purchased throughout the school holidays too, so families can enjoy great days out. Greater Anglia has a range of great value fares and up to four children can travel for just £2 each way with any adult.”

Hare Fares are available as standard off-peak day return tickets only and can only be booked online exclusively at or via the Greater Anglia app, where customers can purchase tickets without booking fees.

Greater Anglia also offers a range of Advance fares that offer customers savings of between 60-70% on the standard walk up prices, plus 2FOR1 on entry to many top attractions in London and East Anglia.

Greater Anglia also has a range of great value fares which are available all year round, including GroupSave for people travelling in a group of three or more, a special London evening out fare for those staying overnight in the capital and a Club 50 discount for those aged 50 over.

For the best value fares, passengers should book in advance and the earlier customers book, the more they can save.

Hare Fares are not valid on journeys wholly within the Oyster zone. Standard refund rules apply.
