Booking tickets for a work outing? Going on a fun day out with friends or getting the old gang back together? Travel together and save money on your tickets.
Save money on group bookings
Train trips can work out cheaper when you travel with friends.
If you’re travelling in a group of 3-9 adults, GroupSave gives you a 34% discount on Off-Peak travel - that’s outside busy times on weekdays, and all day on weekends and Bank Holidays.
You’ll get the discount on the following tickets:
- Anytime Single (at Off-Peak times)
- Off-Peak Day Return
- Off-Peak Day Single
- Off-Peak Day Travelcards outside London
- Super Off-Peak
If you book your tickets online using our standard ticket booking website, you will be eligible for a money back guarantee.
GroupSave is also available from our ticket offices, but if you are travelling in a large group please purchase your tickets in advance of your date of travel.
Groups of 30 or more
Travelling with 30 people or a larger party? We can offer special discounts. The best fares are usually available during the quietest periods.
Call our group booking service for the best deal:
- Online booking form
- 0345 026 4700 (07:00 to 22:00 every day, except Xmas Day)
Please book in advance of your date of travel, as some routes have limited capacity and the more notice you give us the more likely we will be able to accept your booking.
Restrictions on group bookings
You can’t use GroupSave tickets during weekday peak times.
If any of your group has a railcard, it can’t be used to get an extra discount on your GroupSave ticket.
The whole group has to travel together on the same trains (so make sure you get along!).
GroupSave might not be available at some stations when there are big events. Check the GroupSave calendar for details.
The terms and conditions on this page of the National Rail website tell you more about when you can use group tickets.
