These are a great way to save on national rail travel. A railcard costs £30 for one year and give you 1/3 off train travel so if you use it a couple times you can make your money back quite quickly. Find out more about railcards.

Arranging a school trip?

We know planning a great school trip on a budget can be hard work. At Greater Anglia, we offer amazing value for children up to and including 18 years of age, when 10 or more people are travelling together.

  • Departure and destination stations
  • Dates and rough time of your outward and return journey
  • The number of people travelling between ages, 15-15, 16-18 and non-students aged 16 and over


If you'd like to refund a scholar pass for the full academic year, please contact [email protected]. There are no refunds available for term passes for the spring term.
