Online advance discount
Buy ahead for our best fare
For our cheapest Adult Off-Peak tickets, simply buy online three or more days in advance. On weekdays you’ll save ⅓ on our Off-Peak Return tickets and at weekends you’ll also make an extra saving, making this our best value ticket all week long. For example, you can travel from London Fenchurch Street to Southend return for £11.75, or Benfleet to Chafford Hundred return for £5.25 – and it’s the same price Off-Peak weekdays as it is at weekends.
For bargain-seekers and the exceptionally organised
The deal is ideal for those who want to take a day trip to London or the South Essex Coast – and has a couple of days to organise it. Go on; enjoy an online discount that rewards you for getting in there early.
