You can save 1/3 off your fare with our GroupSave offer, available on Off-Peak tickets for groups of between three and nine people. If you’re having a day out with friends and family this is the ticket for you and you’ll need to travel together for your tickets to be valid. Make sure you’re all sitting close-by onboard, as our ticket inspectors will check that you’re travelling as a group.

FAQ connected to this ticket type

  1. 1. How do you calculate the credit I will receive for travelling off-peak? products-faq-angle-arrow.svg products-faq-angle-arrow-purple.svg

    If on one of the days that you use a Flexi-Season ticket you only travel off-peak, we will credit the c2c online account linked to your Smartcard with an eVoucher worth 10% of the cost of that day’s travel. If you use your Flexi Season ticket on Saturday, Sunday or a Bank Holiday, your online account will be credited with the difference in price between the cost of that day’s Flexi Season ticket travel and that of a Weekend Off-Peak Day Return. We will then credit eVouchers to your account, approximately 10 days after the date of your journey. Please note: you must always tap in and tap out to receive this reward. As an example, if you bought a Flexi for £80, the cost for each day’s travel is £10. If you travel off-peak one day, you will therefore receive an eVoucher of £1. If you travel at the weekend, you will generally receive an eVoucher for £2.50 or more.
  2. 2. When are Off-Peak parking tickets valid? products-faq-angle-arrow.svg products-faq-angle-arrow-purple.svg

    Off-Peak car park tickets are generally available from 10am and all weekend. Please check the station information section of this website for more information about off peak car park prices.
  3. 3. I want to book for a large group. Who do I contact and are there any discounts? products-faq-angle-arrow.svg products-faq-angle-arrow-purple.svg

    Here at c2c, we welcome private bookings (10 or more people travelling together) from schools, companies, charities and organisations. If your group size is between three and nine people, book your tickets directly using our GroupSave offer. Big groups of 10 or more people can make excellent savings on our Standard fare, with up to 34% off our Adult ticket price and tickets for £2 or less for kids travelling on the c2c route. School group travel is particularly popular on our services - especially in the summer - and each year hundreds of schools choose to use us for their scheduled trips and breaks. We encourage you to book your trip with us as early as possible so we can help you book the train you want. The latest that school group bookings can be taken and confirmed is seven working days before you wish to travel - and the whole group must travel together for the entire journey. For very large groups (of 100 or more), we ask that travel is booked at least two weeks in advance; this gives us time to make arrangements to accommodate your group smoothly.
  4. 4. I’m travelling with a group; is there a discount? products-faq-angle-arrow.svg products-faq-angle-arrow-purple.svg
