FAQ connected to this ticket type

  1. 1. At what age can children travel on your trains unaccompanied by an adult? products-faq-angle-arrow.svg products-faq-angle-arrow-purple.svg

    c2c can’t take any responsibility for children travelling alone and we will not allow any child under the age of 12 to travel without an adult (aged 16 or over). If our staff do believe that a child under the specified age is travelling alone, the British Transport Police will be called for assistance.
  2. 2. At what age do my children need to be before I have to purchase a Travelcard for them to travel in London? products-faq-angle-arrow.svg products-faq-angle-arrow-purple.svg

    Children under 11 years of age can travel free during off-peak hours within the London Travelcard area (Monday to Fridays after 09:30 or anytime Saturday, Sunday and during public holidays) - but only if they are accompanying an adult who is making the journey with an Oyster card. If you have a paper ticket, you will need to purchase a child ticket for this journey. Each Adult Travelcard holder who is using Oyster can take up to four children under 11 for free - and up to four 11 to 15-year-olds for a £1 flat fare All Zones Off-Peak Day Travelcard. No photocards are required by any accompanied children. If you are travelling using a paper ticket, you will need to purchase a children's ticket. You may find that our Family Travelcard option offers you the best value.
  3. 3. What do you offer in terms of child fares? products-faq-angle-arrow.svg products-faq-angle-arrow-purple.svg

    Children under five travel free of charge. For children aged 5 - 15, there is a 50% discount on fares, including daily tickets and weekly, monthly and annual season tickets. This is ideal for any term-time travel your child is doing. During school holidays and weekends, we offer a Kids for £2 fare (although this cannot be added onto a Smartcard). If you're travelling into London as a family, try our Family Railcard.
  4. 4. Can I get a Child (Under 16) ticket on a c2c Smartcard? products-faq-angle-arrow.svg products-faq-angle-arrow-purple.svg

    Yes. Please see our Child Smartcards page for more information.
