Use the National Rail Enquiries journey planner

It will automatically compare tickets from ALL train operators, so you can see the different journey times, routes and prices, and choose between them.

Avoid booking fees

Don't pay booking fees. Buy your train ticket for any train operator through us and the ticket is all you’ll pay for.

Book in advance

You’ll usually find the biggest savings if you book ahead. Advance tickets usually become available 12 weeks before they are valid for travel and you can snap them up through National Rail Enquiries. Check when they're available text.

Travel with your Railcard

Using your Railcard when you use the National Rail Enquiries journey planner will give you an even cheaper ticket. Not got one? Visit our railcards page and we'll help you there, too.
