  1. 1. What is an Anytime ticket? products-faq-angle-arrow.svg products-faq-angle-arrow-purple.svg

    With an Anytime ticket, you can travel on any train for the date(s) shown on your ticket, including the weekday morning peak. Anytime train tickets allow for flexible outward and return travel between two stations, either on a single day or returning within a one-month period. There are no restrictions on the time of day you can travel with an Anytime ticket, meaning you can board a train during Peak, Off-Peak or Super Off-Peak hours.    
  2. 2. What are Off Peak tickets? products-faq-angle-arrow.svg products-faq-angle-arrow-purple.svg

    With an Off Peak ticket on c2c services, you can travel on any Off Peak train for the date(s) shown on your ticket. With c2c, that means the ticket is generally valid for arrival into London after 10am on weekdays. For travel out of London, the ticket is valid for travel after 09:30am on weekdays. Generally, you can’t travel on weekday morning peak services with an Off Peak ticket. There are some exceptions and other operators vary, so use the journey planner to check what the applicable fares are, depending on the time and day of travel.
