OFF-PEAK TRAIN TICKETS are perfect if you are not restricted to traveling early in the morning, or do not need to arrive at a particular time. The travel restrictions for your Off-Peak ticket will depend on the journey you are making and you will be advised of any restrictions when you buy your ticket on RailSaver.
To assist you make the correct ticket choice click on the icon displayed next to each ticket price (after you have initiated a ticket price look-up) and a summary listing the ticket type and any restrictions that may apply to it will be displayed.
Off-Peak Train Ticket fares are cheaper tickets for traveling on trains that are less busy so if you need more flexibility than an Advance train fare can offer you the Off-Peak rail ticket could be for you. Where there is more than one Off-peak fare for a journey, the cheaper fare with more restrictions will be called Super Off-Peak. For Off-Peak Open Return tickets the outward journeys must be made on the date shown on your ticket, but you can make the return journey on any day within one calendar month of the outward journey. Off-Peak tickets may require you to travel at specific times of the day or days of the week, or on a certain rail route. Super Off-Peak tickets cannot be used on all trains, so please make a note of the train times that Super Off-Peak tickets are eligible for before you travel.
Please Note: Minimum fares and time restrictions may apply to tickets bought with a Railcard or other discount card. Off-Peak Day and Super Off-Peak Day tickets may require you to travel at specific times of day, days of the week or on a specific route. Off-peak Day and Super Off-peak Day tickets are valid for travel on the date shown on your ticket and until 0230 on the following day.
If the route shown on the ticket has a a€ , the ticket includes the cost of traveling between certain London Stations (e.g. Other than to change trains, a break of journey at intermediate London Underground or DLR stations is NOT permitted.
Railcard holders traveling on a discounted ticket must carry their Railcard when they travel. The outward part of a Off-Peak Day and Super Off-Peak Day Return ticket is only valid for travel when accompanied by an unused return part of the same ticket. Break of journey is allowed on Off-peak tickets unless restricted for the journey you are making. If you break your journey and are still traveling at 02h30 then you may stay on the train to complete that part of the journey, but no further break of journey is allowed and all travel must be completed by 12h00. If you wish to change your time of travel or class of the ticket, you can pay the difference between the cost of the ticket held and the cost of the ticket that is most appropriate for the journey you need to make. If you wish to change the date of travel, or the origin or destination of your ticket, it may be necessary to buy a new ticket and apply for a refund on your existing ticket. If you decide not to use your ticket to make all or part of your intended journey then you can get a refund by returning your unused ticket to the ticket office or place of purchase (for tickets bought via websites, telesales or travel agents) within 28 days of the ticket expiry date.
The refund amount will normally take into account any use you have made of the ticket and in some circumstances no refund will be paid. Important: Readers are advised that the above guide to train fares and train tickets is merely an easy to read summary detailing the key points of the applicable fares and tickets. The information design geek in me took special notice of this post by Daniel Gray, about the excessive number of train tickets he received for a return journey.
An equivalent ticket would be produced for the return journey, so whilst it’s not as environmentally sound as a single ticket for the whole journey, it is (I hope) more logical. 2) Platforms are a great idea, but platforms are subject to change after the ticket has been printed, making that particular bit of information useless, unfortunately. Am I correct in thinking that some tickets allow you to go from point A to point B using whichever trains you wish?
One also needs to consider how, for mulit-part journeys, a ticket inspector could mark each part of the journey. In answer to the long station names, perhaps a system akin to that used for airports would be suitable. It’s already possible for train conductors to print itemised journeys on ticket stock from their machines (obviously you have to ask for them though). I’ll echo the thoughts of other commenters and add that this design looks good on screen but try printing it.
The edges of the letters on your design are very crisp but when printed you can expect the ink to bleed and so you’d very very blurry words.
Think tickets need to be clearer about which company they can be used with, if it’s a chiltern or virgin only service then the ticket should clearly indicate.


For the Young Person’s Railcard (and other rail card tickets) it would be very useful to indicate that it was only valid if the rail card is too. This design doesn’t cover the problem of two bits of paper for each booked train for when I take my bike on longer distance trains. Not to diminish the magnitude of your achievement here, but virtually any redesign with an ounce of thought behind it would be an improvement over the old style.
That said, the new ticket’s information can be processed extremely quickly, characteristic of a very good design. I don’t see how your date design on 20 Jun 2011 accounts for open tickets with 1 month validity. In fact when I think of it, I wish the physical ticket wasn’t necessary if I could show a valid ticket number.
If you want to add lots more info for smart phone users you could print a QR code on the ticket. I visited london last yr and had so many tickets it looked like id been riding trains for a month! Yes the current design needs improving especially vailidty of dates, routesm and whether it is 1st or 2nd class. There are also some time restrictions, for example Southern Super Off Peak Returns are not valid for return journeys leaving London Terminals between 1615 and 1915. Dougie: The intention with this approach is that it would eat your ticket at the end of each journey, as per the current system, but keeping the printed tickets down to 2 and a receipt. On the general topic of platforms, they are worked out to schedule, but of course this is open to change, and presumably a sort of domino effect if one is changed. I really like the simplistic information design on the ticket, much more easier to understand and read with the cleaner fonts, and non cluttered layout.
Unfortunately there are more major problems than the ticket design, and that’s the delays in trains tied with engineering works , and theres the issue with the workers unions and strikes. But seriously, this is a really good idea, and one that should require minimal retooling or software changes to implement. In terms of your actual design, can’t some of the informtion go on the BACK of the ticket? There is, of course, the argument that it should be designed for the benefit of the rail staff who look at thousands of these a day, but in my view, they will soon (probably within a matter of hours) become adept at finding the information they need to know.
It would be great if the tickets could also tell you which company you’re allowed to travel with, as I know so many people who have been caught out by unwittingly getting on the wrong provider when their ticket actually tells them no different. This is a lovely design, but it fails massively at observing some important practical constraints. The thermal printers which produce the existing tickets are likely limited in their typographical capabilities. Of course, I could be wrong, but I suspect that these printers simply can’t reproduce the typographical subtleties of your new design. I doubt that beancounters would see the value of a more legible ticket overwhelming the cost of new ticket printers, and thus they’d ask for a redesign that lived within the constraints of the printers they already have. Gosh – some people seem really concerned about whether or not printers can handle your design or barriers will retain their tickets. Regardless, it seems you’ve found something that people care passionately about and think is worth redesigning. Great to see people tackling real life problems, but honestly I think it could be improved a lot. I use trains everyday and have amassed a stack load of train tickets over the past year alone. Another point to note is that often the seat reservation is sometimes done separately from the ticket sale, so separate parts are needed, or the entire ticket would have to be reprinted.
In the future we will be using oyster type digital smart cards or the QR codes with our smart phones instead. To see our content at its best we recommend upgrading if you wish to continue using IE or using another browser such as Firefox, Safari or Google Chrome.
Off-peak rail fares are "higher in the UK than anywhere else in Europe", the Liberal Democrats have warned. The travel restrictions for your Off-Peak ticket will depend on the journey you are making and will be advised when you buy your ticket. The travel restrictions will depend on the journey you are making, but you will be advised of any restrictions at the point of booking your train tickets online with Rail Saver. If you intend to break your journey, please call 08457 48 49 50 to check if it is available on your specific journey.


In many cases, if you are still traveling at a time when your ticket is not restricted, no additional fare is payable. As such this guide should be regarded as a layman's reference and not be construed as an accurate interpretation of the National Rail Conditions of Carriage - all of which may be viewed by clicking here. I was beaten to a visual response by a follow-up from Neil Martin with a solution to fit everything onto a single ticket. Because staff of the rail companies look at these every day, they will soon become familiar with finding the information they need to check.
Even for just a simple, no change, return journey I had 6 bits of card to fumble through recently. I totally agree it’s a great piece of information, just not one for a ticket unfortunately! Basically, the Northern Line route is a suggestion, not a rule – you can go other routes if you prefer. Currently they clip each ticket so perhaps it could be as simple as clipping the appropriate line for that segment of the trip. When I’ve been issued with 12 of them for a return journey they all look the same and I have to constantly put in effort to work out which one is which. I’ve seen a few people caught out by not having their rail card with them on the train. They like to eat my OUT ticket at the destination for the outward journey and eat my RTN ticket when I get back to Basingstoke? That could include a URL to the National Rail journey tracker website (pre-filled with the origin and destination stations).
Leaving many to wonder if they can get later trains on what happens in the case of cancellation.
On open tickets (the third example) I have intentionally not included and platform information for the very reason that different trains to the same destination can go from different platforms at different times of the day. O do prefer the simpler version on the bottom of the blog as that one, seems to show abit more clearer, but I can see that for long journeys you need to see which platform to board and get off etc.
In this regard it should be easy for the passenger to know what ticket he needs to show to the railway staff.
Platforms change so often, and if people start to trust the information on the ticket, they might not pay as much attention to the announcements.
The existing type looks the way it does because that’s what the printer is capable of producing. Of the larger size, I see two widths (normal and extended), which is also likely a property of the thermal printer; the wider setting produces glyphs twice as wide (monospace) as the normal ones. You’ve left out some very important information that the ticket guards need to see, and be able to spot quickly. The result of the existing chaotic design caused by the constraints of thermal printers in the ticket machines.
I even used a smart card in the Netherlands for all my journeys last December as a tourist. Not sure if this is correct or whether it would even make a difference really but might be worth a thought.
I also agree that the platform number, whilst a great idea, would be useless in practice as they change them too much. Besides, lets face it, it will be IMPOSSIBLE to print your design in existing ticket printers. What really needs redesigning is the railway system that can charge you ?200 for a 100-mile journey.
I only just realised you had this big discussion going on here, so apologies for not chipping in sooner. So what’s the point of Your redesign if You they would need to buy new printers which would cost much more with Your solution of redesign than it is now?
As pointed out by the many comments above, as it stands the design is far from perfect (that will teach me for putting up a rough first draft) but I feel, and obviously some will disagree, that it is moving towards something that is more usable for the customer.
