Carnet tickets

If you often make the same journey - like a London business trip or a family visit - you could save money by buying tickets in books of five or 10.

About our Carnet tickets

Save 10% when you buy a book of five or 10 Carnet tickets with us.

Don’t travel every day, but want to save money by booking a number of tickets for your regular routes?

A ‘carnet’ (car-nay) is a fancy term for a book of tickets. It sounds better in French!

Carnet tickets are:

  • Sold in books of five or 10 tickets
  • Available on a range of routes between National Rail stations (not Underground)
  • Valid for three months
  • Standard class
  • Singles, not returns: if you’re making a regular round trip, you buy a book of Carnets for each direction. Make sure you select a single journey when buying online.

A book of Carnet tickets might be your best bet if you regularly do the same trip, but not often enough to splash out on a season ticket.
