The times you can use your Off-Peak ticket depend on the train company you’re travelling with, where you’re going and when you’re travelling. Use the journey planner to check for Off-Peak services.

Morning peak time
Off-Peak tickets to London stations can’t be used on trains scheduled to arrive at King’s Cross or Moorgate before 10.00
Evening peak time
The return part of an Off-Peak ticket can’t be used on northbound services that leave King’s Cross or Moorgate between 16.30 and 19.01 – but you can use a single Off-Peak or the outward part of a return at these times.
You can use your Off-Peak ticket at any time if:
- You’re travelling northbound to Ely or beyond
- Your journey starts and ends south of Stevenage
- Your journey starts and ends north of Finsbury Park
