Anytime tickets

Don’t be tied down by timetables: leave your options open with a ticket you can use at any time.

Anytime Train Tickets – Any Train, Anywhere, Any Time

You won’t always know when it’s time to go. If your work meeting has ended early or if the show must go on, an Anytime train ticket from Great Northern is the all-day train ticket that gives you the freedom to keep your options open.

You can even break your journey at any station along your route.

What type of Anytime ticket do I need?

With an Anytime Day Single ticket, you can travel on any train you want – but you must use your ticket within the date shown on your ticket up until 4.29am the next morning.

An Anytime Return ticket lets you travel out on the date shown on your ticket or at any point within five days. You have a calendar month in which to make the return leg of the journey, so you don’t need to rush back if you’d rather take an extra day or three.

If you’re going there and back on the same day and want the whole timetable open to you, the Anytime Day Return is for you. Just make sure you’ve done all your travelling by 4.29am!

London Calling? Take advantage of the Anytime Day Travelcard. Much like the Anytime Day Return, it lets you travel to and from London on the same day – but with unlimited Tube, DLR, Tram, London Overground and bus trips too.

With all these Anytime train tickets, you can break your journey anywhere along your route.

What’s so good about Anytime tickets?

Anytime tickets are completely flexible tickets, which means you don’t have to be at the station for a certain time. Other great features of this all-day train ticket are:

  • Buy in advance or walk-up on the day
  • 50% discount for children aged 5-15; two kids under 5 go free with each paying adult
  • 1/3 off some fares for Railcard holders
  • Use your GroupSave discount to save even more at Off-Peak times

When are Anytime train tickets valid?

Anytime! The only thing you need to bear in mind is that you might not be able to use a certain train operator with your ticket. Some Anytime tickets on the Great Northern route are only valid if you go via Cambridge too.
