We know that as a regular traveller, you want the best value ticket possible. That’s why we’ve created this handy guide to help you find the right ticket for you and save you money.
Did you know we have five different tickets for commuters including season tickets?
It’s all you’ll need if you’re travelling infrequently - such as one or two days a week.
Perfect for regular commuters travelling more than three days a week but want some flexibility throughout the year. Includes seven-day unlimited travel between two stations.
Just the ticket for regular commuters or term-time travellers, giving monthly unlimited travel between two stations. Month to month purchase or direct debit auto-renewal options available.
The ticket that works around you. Perfect if you want to save while commuting for a set period of time.
If you’re looking for the best value, this is the one. Get 12 weeks of free travel and unlimited journeys between two stations for an entire year. You will also gain access to the many benefits with an annual Gold Card. Upfront or monthly direct debit loan payment options available.
The new Flexi Season ticket offers 8 days of travel in 28 days - any time between two stations. Pay for the days you need, spend the rest wherever you like. It’s a flexible solution that’s perfect if you need to travel to work a couple of times a week at peak time Monday to Friday.
Still not sure which ticket is best? Here are some frequently asked questions that will help you find the right rail season ticket for you.
75% of Season Ticket holders use Smart Card for seamless travel. Order your free electronic, reusable Smart Card online – it only takes five minutes and will be delivered to your address within 3 working days. Alternatively, you can collect a physical Smart Card from one of our stations after two hours. Then simply add your purchased train season ticket to your Smart Card all in the GA app.
If you commute one or two days a week, a Daily Anytime Return Ticket is best for you. And if you travel outside of peak time, you can get further savings with Off-Peak, or Super Off-Peak Daily Return Tickets. Find out about Daily Tickets.
If you commute three or more days a week regularly, choose a Monthly, Custom Length, Annual or Weekly Season Ticket. Depending on where you commute from and to, you could save up to ⅓ compared to Anytime Daily Return Tickets.
You can use our Season Ticket Calculator to find out how much your ticket will cost (and how much you’ll save compared to buying standard tickets).
It’s easy to buy your Season Ticket digitally through the GA app or on our website. For Smart Card users, please load your purchased Weekly, Monthly, Custom Length or Annual Season Ticket to your Smart Card via the GA app for instant contactless travel.

You can also set up an auto-renew, direct debit with Seasons Direct monthly season ticket or spread the cost of an Annual Travelcard Season Ticket across the year with Commuter Club yearly train season ticket.
