    Off-Peak tickets are cheaper fares for travelling on trains that are less busy. Offering good value for money, these tickets may require you to travel at specific times of the day, days of the week and sometimes on specific routes.

    On some journeys, there is an even cheaper level of fares with more restrictions. These are called Super Off-Peak tickets.

    The travel restrictions for your Off-Peak ticket will depend on the journey you are making and will be advised when you buy your ticket. If you use the online journey planner at it will automatically work out what tickets are valid for your journey.

    Changing an Off-Peak ticket
    These fares do not restrict you to travelling on a specific train, but they do have restrictions on the time you can travel. Check at the station before you travel, but you may find you don't need to pay an additional fare as long as you complete your journey within a calendar month for 'Off-Peak' tickets and on the date shown on the ticket for 'Off-Peak Day' tickets.

    For more information about Off-peak tickets, please visit the National Rail Enquiries website.

    Please check the details of your intended journey prior to buying a ticket and travel. Rail improvement works by Network Rail can sometimes impact, at short notice, timetables, routes and the types of vehicle used.

    When you buy a ticket to travel on the railway, you enter into an agreement with Arriva Trains Wales and other train operators in the UK called the National Rail Conditions of Travel. This can be viewed on the National Rail's website.
