How to use our season ticket calculator
Do you travel by rail at least two times a week? Our season ticket calculator can help you save money. Just choose your regular route, and how often you plan to travel. Our calculator will do all the rest – showing the various train season ticket options available to you.
Click the option that suits you best – and it'll take you through to where you can purchase it.
You can also find out more about our other ticket types here.
Please note: Our calculator only compares season tickets, and does not offer a full comparison of all fares available for your journey – especially if you travel at Off-Peak times.
Remember to check before you travel and before buying your season ticket too. There may be some engineering works that could affect your journey.
Travel 3 days per week with the Flexi Season ticket?
You'll need more than one Flexi Season Ticket in a month if you plan to travel more than three days in one week. As Flexi tickets are valid for a maximum of 28 days, you can carry over any unused travel into the following calendar month.
But this isn't reflected in our season ticket calculator when a 3-day per week work pattern is chosen for an odd number of months (i.e., 1, 3, 5, etc.). For a comparable price per day, you'll need to choose an even (i.e., 2, 4, 6, etc.) number of months.
Are you travelling 3 or more days a week? Then one of our other ticket types might be a better option for you.
Season ticket prices explained
Total period cost
Annual leave is not factored into the Total period cost. For 12 calendar months of travel, your total Flexi Season Ticket cost will vary based on how many days a week you plan to travel.
To travel up to 2 days a week for 12 calendar months, the calculation for the Total period cost will be based on 12 x Flexi Season Tickets. Plan to travel more than 2 days a week during that time? More than 12 Flexi Season Tickets are needed and the Total period cost will reflect that.
Cost per day
Our season ticket calculator works out what the cost per day of travel is, based on your answers. This cost is an average that factors in how many days you travel in a week, as well as how long you want a season ticket for.
If you travel more often than not, your season ticket price is more likely to offer better value.
Don't forget that all season ticket prices are based on current fares. The cost of your train travel won't go up for as long as your ticket is valid – even if fares rise during that period.
Off-Peak and Super Off-Peak fares
Our calculator compares season tickets only. It doesn't give you a full overview of all the fare options available to you. So, if you travel at Off-Peak or Super Off-Peak times, these fares aren't included. But it's possible these individual tickets could be a better option for you.
Can you purchase a season ticket online?
Yes – our season ticket calculator will take you through to where you can pay for your preferred ticket online.
You can load your ticket onto a Key Smartcard. It's an even faster way to do things, and you can even load your ticket to your Key Smartcard with our smartphone app.
Where can you use your season ticket?
You can use it anywhere between the two stations entered into our season ticket calculator. But season ticket prices don't always include travel in/across London. If you need to include Tube or bus travel, you should first make sure your ticket includes a Travelcard. London Pay-As-You-Go fares are not included either in the Season Ticket Calculator.
