Senior Rover

Travel all day in the off-peak for £6 or £9

Good news. If you’re over 65, you can hop on and off our trains all day for the not-to-be-missed price of just £6 – just get your hands on our Off-peak Weekday Senior Rover ticket. The non-London ticket covers our stations outside the capital’s Travelcard zones (Upminster or Rainham to Shoeburyness). If you’re travelling to or from one our London Zones stations it will be £9 – unless you have a Freedom Pass (which makes it only £6 as this pass covers the London zones).  Oh, and if you own a Senior Railcard and you’re 60 or over, you can get our Senior Rover ticket if you haven’t hit 65 yet!

Over 65s who enjoy semi-regular train travel

If you’re over 65 years of age and you love travelling by train, you’ll want to make the most of our Senior Rover tickets, which allow you to hop on and off trains all day for just £6.
