What is an Open Return ticket?

Open Returns are designed for optimum flexibility on your part, as you don’t need to specify the time and date you’d like to make your return journey.

All you need to do is make your return journey by the date specified, which is typically a month after the outward journey.

There are three kinds of Open Return ticket available, each with varying flexibility and price. They are:

  • Anytime – no restriction on return travel
  • Off-Peak – return travel permitted on Off-Peak trains only
  • Super Off-Peak – return travel restricted to some Off-Peak trains.

c2c does not offer Super Off-Peak tickets, nor do we offer Open Return tickets. On c2c a single fare is priced at half of a return, giving you maximum flexibility regardless of your day of travel.
