Train ticket types for your travel

Rail tickets may look a bit complicated at first sight but it's easy to apprehend their functioning. To begin, there are three principal train tickets types applicable in the UK for your train Bath to London: Advance, Off-Peak and Anytime tickets.

  • Advance Ticket : Advance train tickets are a great way to obtain very cheap train tickets. These tickets are accessible up to 12 weeks before travel and offer the biggest reductions.
